Draft note
by John Paulsen
On a per game basis, Darnold has produced at a fantasy QB3 level in his first two seasons. He lost his best big-play threat (Robby Anderson), but the Jets replaced him with another (Breshad Perriman) and added Dezel Mims via the draft. The team also invested in the offensive line, which should help since Darnold had the league’s highest rate of dropbacks under pressure, per PFF. Darnold posted the 9th-highest adjusted completion percentage when throwing from a clean pocket, so if the offensive line can gel quickly, Darnold could become a valuable streamer in his third season.

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.
