Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Darnold hasn't been good. If we exclude his 46-yard rushing touchdown from his final Week 4 statline, he'd have 46.78 total fantasy points on the year in four starts. That's just 11.7 points per game! That rushing score single-handedly inflates his average to 14.3, which still isn't good, but it looks a lot better than what he has otherwise. Darnold is a QB2 by default this week due to byes.
