Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
After stringing together three consecutive 300-yard passing games, Darnold threw for a season-low 177 yards against the Eagles in Week 5. He had one TD pass against Philadelphia and threw three interceptions. Darnold's matchup against the Vikings this week is no cakewalk. Minnesota's pass defense ranks fifth in Football Outsiders' DVOA metric, and PFF grades the Vikings ninth in both pass rush and pass coverage. Darnold is QB9 in fantasy scoring, but his five TD runs artificially inflate that number. Consider him more of a high-end QB2 for this week and steer clear in DFS. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Darnold bombed this week failing to throw for 200 yards or multiple TD passes for the first time this season. He will look to bounce back against the Vikings at home this week.
