Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Darnold's put together just four total TDs to six INTs through five games this season, averaging fewer than 200 passing yards per game in the process. Off the fantasy map? He's nowhere near it. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Darnold isn't on the redraft radar in this offense. He can remain on your waiver wire. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The Chiefs are known as a matchup that people think, "Oh, their opponent will fall behind and rack up points in garbage time!" Nope. They've allowed just a 60.1 percent completion-rate to opponents, which is the third-best mark in football. They've allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points overall, and the fourth-fewest fantasy points per offensive play. Knowing the Jets run just 61.9 plays per game, you don't need to be running to the waiver wire to stream Darnold. If you're thinking about it, stop, get some help.
