QB - NYJ
This Week Outlook
Sam Darnold completed 23-of-34 attempts for 266 yards, one TD, and two interceptions in the Jets' 28-14 Week 17 loss to the Patriots.
Darnold finishes the year with a disappointing 9:11 TD:INT ratio over 12 games played. The 23-year-old was under pressure on 43.3% of his drop backs according to Pro Football Focus, which was the highest rate in the NFL. It's clear a change of scenery is likely needed, and it's too early to fully give up on the former No. 3 overall draft pick. Darnold will be the subject of many rumors this offseason.
Sam Darnold completed 16-of-32 passes for 175 yards and two touchdowns in the Jets' Week 16 win over the Browns.
Darnold added 20 rushing yards on seven attempts. He has been mistake-free on offense over the past two weeks as the Jets have shockingly won each game. Still, it isn't as if the 23-year-old has been overly impressive. New York will still be in prime position to draft a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick. The Jets will close out the season by taking a trip to Foxboro to play the Patriots in Week 17.
Sam Darnold completed 22-of-31 passes for 207 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' surprising Week 15 win over the Rams.
The Jets are no longer in the driver's seat for the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Darnold didn't particularly impress today but it was enough to beat the lifeless Rams, who were apparently already looking ahead to Week 16. Darnold won't be a fantasy factor in Week 16 against the Browns. It'll be interesting to see how the Jets handle him this offseason. Even with the No. 2 pick, New York will be in prime position to draft a quarterback.
Sam Darnold completed 14-of-26 passes for 132 scoreless yards in the Jets' 40-3 Week 14 loss to the Seahawks.
It's unclear how good Darnold actually is, but what we know is that he has no shot at success with Adam Gase running the team right now. Darnold has a hideous 5:9 TD:INT ratio through nine games this year. He has an impossible matchup against the Rams in Week 15.
Sam Darnold completed 14-of-22 passes for 146 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Jets' Week 13 loss to the Raiders.
Darnold also lost two fumbles. It was another uninspiring performance despite the team having their starting receivers fully healthy. At this point it seems quite likely that the Jets could wind up with Trevor Lawrence in next year's draft, which muddles the future of Sam Darnold's tenure with the organization. The Seahawks are on deck for Week 14.
