Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
If you need a streaming quarterback in place of Tom Brady or Drew Brees this week, Darnold just so happens to be taking on the Dolphins which should lead to another 20+ point performance. Besides last week's flop, he has been great over the past 6 weeks.You may be tempted to start Brissett considering he has the best matchup on the slate, but with Ebron and Hilton both out, he is by no means safe enough to play. Brissett hasn't scored more than 16 points in any game since Week 7.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Darnold is the exact reason why player evaluations during the regular season and playoffs are vastly different. In the regular season, Darnold was worth a stash and a spot-start. Since then, he's proven that he's going to be inconsistent no matter the matchup. Even against the Dolphins in Week 14, you should look for more consistent options unless you're desperate for some upside in your lineup.Brissett is pretty much out of offensive weapons, though that didn't matter too much last week against the Titans, as he threw for 318 yards. He faces the fifth-worst pass defense in Week 14, but realize that his lack of weapons may dampen his day. Consider him a low-end QB2.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Coming off a game where he may have cost his owners the matchup, Darnold has another great matchup on his plate. Can you trust him against a Dolphins team that's allowed 10-of-12 quarterbacks to finish as top-16 options against them? It's a good question, though the answer the last time they played would've been "no." He finished that game completing 27-of-39 passes for 260 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. There should be an asterisk next to that, though, as he should've been 28-of-38 for 263 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. Why? He threw a touchdown pass to Ryan Griffin that was overturned because the ball moved a bit when he hit the wall (it was a horrendous call). The next play, Darnold threw an interception. It's a game of inches and that one play had a six-plus point swing in fantasy football. There was just one other game this year where a quarterback failed to throw multiple touchdowns. There's plenty of risk with Darnold and the Jets team as a whole, but if you're playing the percentages, he should be able to finish as a top-16 option and a decent streamer. He reportedly suffered a knee injury and bruised ribs in the loss to the Bengals, so you have to pass attention to his status throughout the week.It's been a bumpy road for Brissett over the second half of the season, as he continues to lose pass-catchers. We likely won't know if Hilton is available until later in the week, which obviously factors into your decision to stream Brissett. The Bucs have been extremely good over the last two weeks, allowing just 51-of-96 passing for 566 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions against the combination of Matt Ryan/Matt Schaub and Nick Foles/Gardner Minshew. Have they suddenly become a good defense? Highly unlikely. Prior to those two games, they'd allowed 14 passing touchdowns in their last four games, including at least three touchdowns to every quarterback in that time. The 7.20 yards per attempt they've allowed is right around the league average, but the fact that they've faced 500 pass attempts through 12 games (41.7 per game) tells the whole story. That's allowed six different quarterbacks hit 300-plus yards. Here's a fun fact: Brissett has thrown 30 or more pass attempts just four times this season. He's scored 20-plus fantasy points in three of them. The issue comes back to lack of weapons available to Brissett. If Hilton plays, Brissett should be considered in the high-end QB2 conversation. If Hilton is held out, he's more of a middling QB2 with limited upside.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Dolphins are 29th against fantasy quarterbacks, Darnold is a roll of the dice, but he should be a QB1 at home in a great matchup.
