At times last year, Darnold flashed that upside that we all knew he had. Perhaps this will be another case of a mediocre rookie blossoming quickly like Jared Goff did under a new regime, but more likely, Adam Gase will limit the Jets' play count and thus fantasy production. The Jets have few competent options in the receiving game so more than likely, Darnold will be a fringe QB2/QB3 again this year.Now that Colt McCoy is injured, Keenum is expected to open the year as Washington's starter. It won't be long, however, before he hands the job over to Haskins a month or two in. Keenum is a longshot to be fantasy relevant at this point.
Derek Lofland

Darnold has looked crisper and more confident in his second year and he has a chance to do big things in Adam Gase's offense. He is a low-end QB2 with a lot of upside in his second season.

I'm a fan of Darnold this year. He doesn't look great in my rankings, but I like his upside and the low risk of snagging him late in drafts 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Was #4 in True Throw Value (TTV)(BRotofantasy.com statistic) and #1 in QBR the last 4 weeks of last season. Recent sophomore QB's Patrick Mahomes, Jared Goff, Carson Wentz, Deshaun Watson and Mitch Trubisky all took big steps up in their second year. Gase made Tannehill very efficient last season according to TTV and Darnold has Bell and Crowder at his disposal now, as well. Easy QB2 with QB1 upside. 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Darnold was dynamite the last four games of his rookie season - Ending top 5 in QBR and True Throw Value. The second year is where young QBs take giant leaps and it's reasonable to expect one from Darnold. Adam Gase brings in a very efficient offense - Tannehill was 6th in True Throw Value last season - that may have been slow in the past due to Tannehill (and not Gase). With Bell around to make plays, Anderson stretching the field, and Crowder, Enunwa, and Herndon making plays all over the field, this Jets offense can look dynamic behind the arm of Sam Darnold. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If there's one thing Darnold has going for him in 2019, it's that he's not going to be benched. Duh, right? Well, that's important for those playing in 2QB leagues, as there are other quarterbacks in his territory who have a chance of getting benched. He was hot and cold throughout his rookie season, though it helps they brought in Le'Veon Bell and Jamison Crowder as pass-catching options. The downside, however, is that Adam Gase is his head coach, who traditionally runs minimal plays for his offenseReports out of Washington are stating that Dwayne Haskins needs some time to grow, so expect Keenum to be the starter for the foreseeable future. I'd argue it's best for him to start all season with the state of the team while letting Haskins get some much needed reps with the backups. Keenum offers nothing with his legs, which means all production will have to come through the air. The issue is that he's got little-to-nothing in the pass-catching department. He's nothing more than an emergency QB3
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
The Jets offense is going to surprise people this season, and it's not going to be because of their ground game (28th rated o-line). Sam Darnold is a good NFL QB, and I expect him to take a step forward this season. He was PFF's 2nd rated QB from week 11 on last season, as he was able to increase his completion percentage, and throw just one interception after returning from his ankle injury. Sam now has Anderson/Enunwa/Crowder as his receivers, with Bell in the backfield and sophomore breakout candidate Chris Herndon at TE (once he returns from suspension). That's a dangerous group, and makes Darnold a realistic option in superflex leagues. I probably wouldn't want him to be my only QB in a 12 team single QB league...but he doesn't have to be with how late he's going. Watch him over the first few weeks, and keep his name in mind as a streaming option at points this season.
