Huddle Up: The rushing score was Darnold's first, but he also turned it over three times through the air for the first time ever. There will be growing pains with a rookie, and Darnold is no different. The Jets will face the Bears on the road in Week 8. He remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: Darnold won't have one of his most important weapons in Quincy Enunwa and he plays the vaunted Minnesota Vikings defense. Stay away.

Huddle Up: Darnold is nursing a minor right elbow injury, but it doesn't appears to be something which will keep him from playing on Sunday night against the Chiefs. Kansas City has the No. 31 pass defense in the NFL, so Darnold is a nice fantasy sleeper and solid streaming option in Week 7.

Huddle Up: It was by far Darnold's most efficient outing, but he still sits at seven touchdowns and six interceptions on the year. He doesn't need to be rostered outside of dynasty leagues.

Huddle Up: Darnold hit a 76-yard touchdown to Robby Anderson in the game, but managed just nine other completions. The Jets helped him to his second victory in five games as a starter. He'll look to even his record at 3-3 against the visiting Colts in Week 6. He remains more of a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: Darnold was facing a stiff test against a strong Jaguars defense and the results are about what fantasy owners should have expected. The rookie will face another sturdy test against the visiting Broncos. Treat Darnold as a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 5.

Huddle Up: Darnold was decent early on, but when he needed to bring them back in the final moments it all went sideways in a hurry. It's all part of the learning process for the USC product. Better days are ahead, though his value outside of keeper leagues is nominal.

Huddle Up: Darnold is 21 years, 103 days old, and he broke the previous record set by Jacky Lee, who was 21 years, 137 years old back on Nov. 25, 1960. So far, Darnold has been everything as advertised. He is a solid QB2 in most fantasy leagues, but a must-have in long-term keeper formats. The Jets take on the Browns on Thursday night in Cleveland.

Huddle Up: Darnold shook off his opening-throw pick-six Monday night and rebounded nicely to throw for 198 yards and a pair of TDs, but he remains much more of a consideration for two-QB and deep leagues rather than standard 10- and 12-team leagues.
Posted: 9/10/2018 7:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Darnold got off to an inauspicious start, tossing an interception on his first play and it was taken all the way back by Quandray Diggs for a touchdown. After that, the rookie settled in and showed a lot of poise while the defense and special teams also provided him with offensive support on the scoreboard. Darnold looks like the real deal, but he still should be treated as a QB2 in redraft formats. Next up is his first divisional game against the Miami Dolphins.

Huddle Up: Take it easy with crowning Darnold as the next big thing just yet. The NFL is not kind to rookie quarterbacks. He does have a decent matchup in his first career start, but he's not in QB1 territory.
Posted: 8/30/2018 8:06am ET
Huddle Up: Darnold is a keeper league chip, but he doesn't have a lot around him to be much more than a fringe QB2 in single-year leagues.
Posted: 8/29/2018 11:45am ET
Huddle Up: Darnold had a great training camp and preseason, and has not looked like a rookie to this point. He apparently has a great grasp on the system and has displayed plenty of maturity beyond his years. While he remains a low-end QB2 in redraft or seasonal formats, he is a must-have in dynasty fantasy leagues.
Posted: 8/19/2018 10:06am ET
Huddle Up: Darnold appears to be the leading candidate for the starting job and will be a valuable option in keeper leagues, but owners in standard leagues should only consider him a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
Posted: 8/17/2018 3:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Darnold probably is more comfortable in the shotgun because of his college career but should still be the leading candidate for the starting job despite his play under center. Darnold will only be a No. 2 quarterback in standard leagues but will be a solid pick in keeper leagues.
Posted: 8/16/2018 7:18pm ET
Huddle Up: Darnold came back down to earth after a solid preseason opener, but he still has a great chance to start Week 1. He doesn't need to be owned in redraft leagues yet, but he should be stashed in keeper leagues and dynasty formats.
Posted: 8/16/2018 4:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Darnold has been receiving more work with the first-team offense recently and may be the leading candidate for the starting job. He will be a popular choice in keeper leagues but would only be a low-end No. 2 quarterback in standard leagues.
Posted: 8/13/2018 12:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Darnold is coming off a solid preseason game and appears to have a good chance to win the starting quarterback job. He would have a lot of value in keeper leagues if he starts but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in standard leagues.
Posted: 8/13/2018 6:50am ET
Huddle Up: Darnold is a keeper-only option for now, but there is a chance he could be a waiver claim for a matchup later in the season.
Posted: 8/10/2018 7:44pm ET
Huddle Up: It wasn't spectacular, but Darnold held his own and avoided any major mistakes in his first preseason action. Darnold doesn't need to be owned in redraft leagues yet, but he needs to be stashed in keeper formats.
Posted: 7/30/2018 10:25am ET
Huddle Up: Darnold is the Jets' quarterback of the future and probably will play at some point this season, but he still has a chance to win the starting job during training camp. Darnold probably will not be a great option in standard leagues even if he starts but should be a popular option in keeper leagues.
Posted: 7/30/2018 10:08am ET
Huddle Up: Darnold still has a chance to compete for the starting quarterback job even though he missed the first few practices of training camp. He will be a valuable option in keeper leagues but would not be more than a No. 2 quarterback in standard leagues if he wins the job.
Posted: 7/24/2018 11:22am ET
Huddle Up: When Darnold does sign and report to camp, he'll be competing with Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater for the right to start. McCown, as the veteran, is the favorite to start and played well last year. The Jets' quarterback situation, however, is one to avoid if at all possible.
Posted: 7/22/2018 7:58pm ET
Huddle Up: Darnold's value is at its highest in dynasty leagues, but if he breaks camp as the starter, he could be worth a flier as a QB2 in the later rounds of redraft leagues.
Posted: 6/13/2018 11:54am ET
Huddle Up: Darnold has put together an impressive season, both before and after the draft. He'll need to beat out veteran Josh McCown and the healing Teddy Bridgewater, but the upside is evident. That upside is limited in redraft leagues, though. His allure primarily exists in dynasty formats.
Posted: 5/22/2018 8:49am ET
Huddle Up: It doesn't really mean anything as he is the new car in the garage. However, he could end up winning the job, and he's worthy of QB2 consideration in fantasy.
Posted: 5/4/2018 7:59pm ET
Huddle Up: It's obviously too early to make any conclusions about Darnold, but he's going to be given the chance to run this offense at some point. He could be a QB2 as soon as this year if he wins the starting job, and he is a must-own in dynasty formats.
Posted: 5/3/2018 12:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation during camp to see if Darnold performs well enough to be named starter. He would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in standard leagues if he wins the job but would be a valuable pick in keeper leagues.
Posted: 4/26/2018 5:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Josh McCown is expected to begin the season as the starting quarterback, but Darnold could take over the job at some point during the season. Darnold probably will not have much value in standard leagues but likely will be a valuable pick in keeper leagues.
Posted: 3/1/2018 5:25am ET
Huddle Up: The redshirt-sophomore quarterback threw for 4,143 yards with 26 scores and 13 picks last season. His completion percentage dipped from 67.2 percent to 63.1 percent, but he's a high-end prospect. He'll be a QB2 to target for upside depending on where he's drafted.
