Darnold has been diagnosed with mononucleosis, and will miss the Jets' game against the Browns in Week 2, and likely more. With the Jets having an early bye in Week 4, expect Darnold to be out until at least Week 5, to give him sufficient time to recover.

Sam Darnold (mono) recovery could range from 3-7 weeks

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Sam Darnold's recovery from mono could range from 3-7 weeks.

Fantasy Impact

The Jets have a convenient bye in Week 4, but it sounds like Darnold could be sidelined well past that. This is a big blow to all of New York's skill positions players, and the offense will likely revolve entirely around Le'Veon Bell for now. Darnold can be dropped in fantasy and the Jets will become a very attackable matchup for streaming defenses.
