Sam Darnold returns with a vengeance

Sam Darnold completed 23-of-32 pass attempts for 332 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Jets' Week 6 win over the Cowboys. Darnold also rushed five times for one yard (including three kneel downs).

Fantasy Impact

Darnold picked up right where he left off -- being a very solid quarterback, that is. Even with a relatively weak supporting cast (though improved from 2018), Darnold delivered a solid day against a decent defense. Darnold should probably be benched in Week 7 against the Patriots, though. And by probably, I mean definitely. The Patriots are an elite pass defense. Better days are ahead beyond Week 7, though.

Sam Darnold cleared to play ahead of Week 6 matchup with Cowboys

Jets quarterback Sam Darnold has been cleared to play ahead of the team's Week 6 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. He had missed the last three games as he recovered from mononucleosis.

Fantasy Impact

Darnold had been feeling better for a couple of weeks, but he was being held out because his spleen was still enlarged and made exposing him to contact too risky. He will return to an 0-4 Jets team that faces a tough matchup against a Cowboys team that just lost two straight games.

Sam Darnold out for Week 5 vs. Eagles

Sam Darnold has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 5 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to reports. Darnold was scheduled to undergo tests today on his enlarged spleen, but it has not progressed to the point where he can be cleared for contact. Luke Falk will start at QB for the Jets and they have resigned David Fales to be his backup for Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Darnold continues to recover from a case of Mono that has sidelined him since shortly after Week 1, and it was always a stretch that he was going to play this week after a test earlier in the week revealed that his spleen was still enlarged. Check back in on his status next week to see if he is able to practice ahead of New York's Week 6 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

Sam Darnold (illness) cleared for non-contact drills

Sam Darnold (illness) has been cleared for non-contact drills and is ready to resume throwing, per Jets Head Coach Adam Gase.

Fantasy Impact

Darnold has been dealing with mono and is still a “question mark” with regards to his status in Sunday’s Week 5 contest against the Eagles. If Darnold is not cleared to play, Luke Falk would draw another start.
