Sam Darnold closes rookie campaign with dud in loss

Sam Darnold completed 16-of-28 pass attempts for 167 yards and rushed once for 28 yards in the Jets' Week 17 loss to the Patriots. He also fumbled once in the game.

Fantasy Impact

After enjoying a bit of a breakout late in the season, Darnold closed his rookie campaign with a dud, though he was under pressure quite a bit in the game. Darnold is still incredibly young for a starting QB, and showed essentially all of the positive signs his fans and fantasy owners could hope to see, despite having an unexciting supporting cast. If the Jets upgrade some of their offensive skill position players or the offensive line, Darnold should take a step forward next season. Expect him to move into the mid-range QB2 conversation pending Jets offseason moves.

Sam Darnold falls just shy of Rodgers in shootout vs. GB

Sam Darnold completed 24-of-35 pass attempts for 341 yards and three touchdowns in the Jets' Week 16 loss to the Packers. He rushed three times for four yards.

Fantasy Impact

Darnold has put together two strong games since returning from injury and is developing nice chemistry with Robby Anderson. Darnold is inching his way up the QB2 ranks, and could be considered a strong streamer for Week 17 against a susceptible Patriots defense. Darnold is still extremely young, and his future is looking bright.

Sam Darnold delivers strong performance in loss

Sam Darnold completed 24-of-38 pass attempts for 253 yards and two touchdowns in the Jets' Week 15 loss to the Texans. He rushed six times for 35 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Darnold had an unusually high-volume game, and turned in a solid fantasy performance, which has not been his norm this season. Darnold has been a lower-volume thrower much of the season, with little TD production. Next week, the Jets host the Packers, and Darnold should be slotted back in his normal QB2 range.

Sam Darnold uninspiring in return from injury

Sam Darnold completed 16-of-24 pass attempts for 170 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Jets' Week 14 win over the Bills. He also rushed four times for 10 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Darnold returned from injury to a tough matchup, and played decently, but is still showing some growing pains, which is understandable for a player who can just barely drink beer legally in the U.S. Darnold is only in the conversation for 2QB leagues at this point. Darnold will face a strong Texans defense next week in what could be a rough day.

Sam Darnold returns to Week 14

Pro Football Talk is reporting Jets QB Sam Darnold returned to Sunday's matchup against the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

After briefly exiting Sunday's Week 14 matchup with the BIlls with an apparent foot injury, the rookie signal caller returned. Darnold has the Jets inside the 10-yard line on his current drive.
