Injury-Based Fantasy Advice - SIT - Darnold injured his throwing elbow last Sunday when he was trying to make a tackle after throwing an interception. He's practicing in full this week, but any injury to a QB's throwing arm is serious. This will also be Darnold's first time playing through an injury in the big leagues if he plays.  
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Darnold's numbers don't jump off the page, but he has quietly thrown for five touchdowns over the last two games, keeping himself in the low-end QB2 conversation against a Vikings D that hasn't been quite as good as advertised.
