If there's one thing Darnold has going for him in 2019, it's that he's not going to be benched. Duh, right? Well, that's important for those playing in 2QB leagues, as there are other quarterbacks in his territory who have a chance of getting benched. He was hot and cold throughout his rookie season, though it helps they brought in Le'Veon Bell and Jamison Crowder as pass-catching options. The downside, however, is that Adam Gase is his head coach, who traditionally runs minimal plays for his offense.

Sam Darnold closes rookie campaign with dud in loss

Sam Darnold completed 16-of-28 pass attempts for 167 yards and rushed once for 28 yards in the Jets' Week 17 loss to the Patriots. He also fumbled once in the game.

Fantasy Impact

After enjoying a bit of a breakout late in the season, Darnold closed his rookie campaign with a dud, though he was under pressure quite a bit in the game. Darnold is still incredibly young for a starting QB, and showed essentially all of the positive signs his fans and fantasy owners could hope to see, despite having an unexciting supporting cast. If the Jets upgrade some of their offensive skill position players or the offensive line, Darnold should take a step forward next season. Expect him to move into the mid-range QB2 conversation pending Jets offseason moves.
