Brady is going to get it done with or without Gronkowski. The only reason he's as low as he is in my rankings, is because guys like Lamar Jackson, Josh Allen and Kyler Murray, are going to provide more fantasy results with their rushing ability. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
He is very risky at 42-years old in fantasy football, but he probably is still a decent QB2 with QB1 upside in certain matchups. The improvement of the wide receiver core will help, but the retirement of TE Rob Gronkowski will not help and the Patriots leaned more on the running game in the second half of the season.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.

Brady is 42 and his system has changed. he also lost Gronk. I won't be forcing him onto my roster in 2019I'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
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
What happens to the No. 17 fantasy quarterback when you take away the best tight end of all-time? It's not likely to make him any better. The Patriots have added another running back to the stable, which hints that they'll try to pound the ball a bit more. Yes, they added N'Keal Harry in the first-round, but rookie receivers tend to take time to develop. Brady is one of the greatest of all-time, but he shouldn't be someone you're drafting to your fantasy teamIf 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 offense

Fantasy Football Advice
I really hope Brady doesn't take my ranking personally. He's still an elite QB, and the Patriots will again be amongst the league leaders in points scored. The thing is, they're going to run the ball a bunch, so he's going to need to get lucky in the TD department to be a reliable fantasy starter this season. Brady won't be adding points with his legs, so he's going to need to be around 300 passing yards a week to be worth starting. He'll for sure do that some weeks, but you won't be able to rely on it. He's someone I'd target as my QB 3 in a superflex league.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.

FantasyPros
The Patriots are still passing plenty with 1551 attempts over the last two years, but Brady is averaging just 7.7 yards per attempt in that time. He will continue to toss around 30 touchdowns too, but with no rushing points added, that will merely be enough to get him back to QB10 at the very most.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.
