Huddle Up: Darnold played well at times this season and should continue to be improve his play next season. He likely will be mostly a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues in 2020.

Huddle Up: It wasn't a pretty day, but the Jets didn't quit and Darnold was able to hook up with Robby Anderson for the team's only touchdown of the day. Darnold should be a decent QB2 with upside heading into 2020.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed 18 of his 32 passes for 218 yards, 2 TDs and an INT against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, Dec. 12. Darnold also ran for 11 yards.
Huddle Up: Darnold played reasonably well against a tough Ravens defense but came up short in a few spots, most notably throwing an interception late in the first half and turning the ball over on downs, that kept the Jets from adding on to their score. The USC product closes the season against a couple of tough defenses and should probably be benched until 2020 in fantasy leagues.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (knee, thumb) practiced in full again Wednesday, Dec. 11, and was removed from the injury report ahead of the game Thursday, Dec. 12, against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Darnold could be a low-end QB1 this week, as he'll likely need to throw often in order to keep pace with the high-flying Ravens. He's a risky play and is best left for two-quarterback leagues.
