Darnold has just 25 fantasy points over the last two weeks and he has not been as good since Christian McCaffrey went down with an injury. Darnold is a low-upside QB2 on the road this week.The Dolphins are 24th against fantasy quarterbacks and do not have a bye week coming off a London game where they did not start either of their starting corners due to injury. Ryan is a high-end streaming QB2 this week.
