2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Jets used the third overall pick of the 2018 NFL draft to select USC quarterback Sam Darnold, a highly touted young quarterback who presumably will be the face of the franchise for the next decade. At 6'4, 225 pounds, Darnold has the prototypical size and arm strength to be a star quarterback in the NFL. As a redshirt freshman in 2016, Darnold completed 67% of his passes, with 3086 passing yards and 31 touchdowns in 13 games for the Trojans. As a sophomore last season, Darnold completed only 63% of his throws and threw four more interceptions, but he logged nearly 1000 more passing yards and increased his yards per attempt.

The Jets will likely begin the season with McCown under center as Darnold continues to get acclimated to the NFL. There is no doubt that the job will eventually be his at some point in the near future, but fantasy owners in single quarterback leagues should wait to pull the trigger until Darnold proves to be a viable fantasy asset.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jets rule out Crowell and Enunwa
McGuire and Cannon expected to handle RB duties
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 13, 1:05 pm

New York Jets
Rookie quarterback Sam Darnold will be without his leading rusher and receiver Saturday against the Houston Texans, as the New York Jets have ruled out running back Isaiah Crowell (toe) and wide receiver Quincy Enunwa (ankle). (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Crowell will sit with a toe injury that's been bothering him for weeks which will allow Elijah McGuire (ankle) and Trenton Cannon as the main running backs against the Texans. Enunwa injured his ankle last week and his absence will leave Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse as the top wideouts. McGuire has some flex appeal along with Anderson working as a deep ball threat.

Injury Darnold out, McCown gets another start
Foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 23, 3:30 pm

New York Jets
New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold will sit for the second straight game with a foot injury, coach Todd Bowles confirmed Friday. The move sets up the second-oldest quarterback matchup in NFL history: Josh McCown, 39, against the New England Patriots' Tom Brady, 41. Brady has been limited in practice this week with a knee injury but is expected to play Sunday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: McCown's first start of the season against the Bills didn't go so well. McCown ended the day with 135 yards and 2 INTs finishing as the QB29 in Week 10. He'll face the Patriots in Week 12 with a banged up receiving corps. Robby Anderson is pushing to play with an ankle injury.

Injury Sam Darnold likely to miss Week 10
Sprained foot
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 7, 1:00 pm

New York Jets
New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold is not expected to play Sunday after spraining his right foot last Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, according to a league source. The injury is considered week-to-week, the source said. After facing the Buffalo Bills, the Jets have their bye week, followed by a home game against the New England Patriots. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Darnold was seen in a walking boot meaning Josh McCown will start against the Bills this week. The Jets have one 300-yard passing game through nine weeks and while the move to McCown might be a slight upgrade, he should only be considered in two-QB leagues.

Injury Robby Anderson doubtful, Jets thin at WR
Kearse and Roberts could start
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 26, 1:30 pm

New York Jets
Robby Anderson, Trumaine Johnson and Spencer Long all listed as doubtful for Sunday. WRs could be Jermaine Kearse, Andre Roberts, Rishard Matthews, Charone Peake and Deontay Burnett. Oh, boy. (Rich Cimini on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It appears Anderson will miss this game with a sprained ankle leaving the Jets extremely thin at the wide receiver position. Kearse, Roberts and newly signed Matthews could be the top three wideouts for rookie Sam Darnold against the Bears. Kearse would be the most viable fantasy asset but doesn't come with a lot of conviction.
