Fantasy Football Player Notes
2022 Draft Rankings
Got off to a fast start in 2021, with five TD passes, five TD runs and three 300-yard games in his first four starts. Then the roof caved in, with Darnold throwing four TD passes and 10 INTs in his other seven starts. So much for the idea that Adam Gase was entirely to blame for Darnold's non-development. He's entering his age-25 season, so there's a flicker of hope left, but time is running out, and he has rookie Matt Corral breathing down his neck.
A scary-looking injury in the Ole Miss bowl game turned out to be just a sprained ankle. Corral doesn't have a rocket arm but throws with accuracy and is an aggressive runner. He has a chance to beat out Sam Darnold for the Carolina starting gig, and even if he doesn't, he's still likely to get a look at some point in 2022.
