Will things finally come together for Darnold? The Jets have completely rebuilt the offensive line, though it's far from a guarantee they'll be a good unit. They added Breshad Perriman and Denzel Mims to the receiver corps but lost Robby Anderson. The biggest issue is Adam Gase calling plays, as his offenses have been horrendous outside of the time he spent with Peyton Manning. Add in a brutal schedule and it's unlikely we see him take that leap.

Sam Darnold has offseason thumb surgery

Sam Darnold underwent a procedure Tuesday to repair a ligament in his left thumb, according to sources. The procedure was performed by the Jets team doctors, and he is not expected to miss any time this offseason, sources said.

Fantasy Impact

Sam Darnold had a lot to overcome during his sophmore season. Playing behind one of the leagues absolute worst offensive lines (ranked 30th overall according to football outsiders) and in a new offensive system under HC Adam Gase. Darnold played much better in the final two months of the season after struggling for a stretch in October when he returned from mono. The decision on resigning UFA Robby Anderson and possibility that GM Joe Douglas decides to move on from Le'veon Bell will have a major impact on Darnold's 2020 outlook.
