Draft note
by John Paulsen
Darnold struggled for most of his rookie season, scoring 14+ points in just one of his first eight games before getting injured in Week 9. When he came back, he had two 21+ point games in his last four. Rookie quarterbacks who have started a minimum of 12 games tend to fall into one of two categories. Either they average 17.0+ PPG or they average less than 14.0 PPG as rookies. The “good” rookie quarterbacks see their PPG decline by 6.0% in their second season, on average. The “bad” rookie quarterbacks see an average PPG increase of 26% in year two. Applying this increase to Darnold’s rookie year PPG (13.0) would yield 16.4 PPG, or solid QB2-type numbers.

NYJ QB Sam Darnold - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs Miami
After one of his best games of the season two weeks ago against Oakland, Sam Darnold and Jets offense crashed and burned against the Bengals. He threw for 239 yards but zero touchdowns and completed 58% of his passes, his lowest total since he saw ghosts in New England in Week 7.

Jets have a great matchup this week against Miami. The Dolphins are ranked 29th in aFPA to quarterbacks. In the first meeting this season, Darnold threw for 260 yards, one touchdown pass and one interception.

Darnold is a good play at home this week so start him as a low-end QB1 for Week 14. Throw last week out the window and expect a game more like the Oakland win.
