WR - PIT
Week 7 Outlook
One day after being claimed off of waivers from Seattle, the Patriots waived sophomore wideout Amara Darboh with a failed physical designation. Darboh missed time in the preseason with hip and shoulder injuries.
If Darboh goes unclaimed, he'll wind up on New England's IR but won't be eligible to play in 2018. Darboh won't have any redraft value this season and his dynasty value is looking bleak.
The receiver-needy New England Patriots claimed 2017 third-round wideout Amara Darboh off of waivers from Seattle. Darboh caught eight balls for 71 yards as a rookie, but at 6-foot-2, 215-pounds has an intriguing athletic profile. He'll mix in with Chad Hansen, who the Patriots also claimed, for WR4 duties.
Darboh was in contention with Brandon Marshall to open the season as Seattle's No. 3 wide receiver but never could get healthy enough to contend. If he can get there physically and master New England's difficult offense, Darboh offers a lot of dynasty appeal at just 24-years-old.
Amara Darboh was waived by the Seattle Seahawks.
Darboh was the team's third-round pick just a season ago, making the move somewhat surprising based on the investment. However, it's not surprising given the production (or lack thereof) from Darboh. He didn't make much of an impression last year and has been injured leading up to the start of the 2018 season.
The Seahawks have selected wide receiver Amara Darboh with the No. 106 overall pick in the NFL Draft.
Darboh is an interesting player, but one who doesn't figure to contribute right away to a Seahawks team that always seems to be in contention. He's a possession style wide receiver who reminds us a little bit of Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa. He'll battle with Paul Richardson in order to take over Jermaine Kearse's position in the starting lineup. He's not on the fantasy radar right now.
