Jets QB Sam Darnold (foot) took full practice reps all week. He was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go. The just-officially-eliminated Packers have given up passing yards to the three competent quarterbacks they’ve faced in the last four weeks. Mitch Trubisky (235/2), Matt Ryan (262/2) and Kirk Cousins (342/3) all went over the 19.0-mark in fantasy points. Meanwhile, Darnold is coming off of 253/2 against the Texans, and he has at least 18.0 fantasy points in three of his last four home games. Throw in a budding rapport with Robby Anderson, and we have the makings of a solid fantasy outing.

Wild Card Playoffs vs. Philadelphia Eagles
As expected, Mitch Trubisky struggled last week against a tough defense. He finished with just 163 yards and no touchdowns, just the second time he's been held scoreless all season. Although it was the fifth time he's been held under 200 yards, which will be a reason why he's not a reliable every week guy.
He gets his first career playoff test this week against the Eagles, which is a decent matchup. The Eagles gave up the 11th-most fantasy points to quarterbacks during the regular season, although they finished the year on a high-note holding Washington to just 91 yards. However in the three games prior the secondary gave up over 300 yards in each outing.
Depending on the game flow, we could see a decent performance from Trubisky this week. He's not one of the stronger playoff QB options, but there are a few worse choices.
