New York Jets QB Sam Darnold's future with the team is uncertain because general manager Joe Douglas said the team would listen to trade interest from other teams.
Huddle Up: The Jets have the second overall pick in the NFL Draft, so they may consider trading Darnold and selecting a quarterback. Darnold is still young and could find success with another team. He would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he starts for a team.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold has drawn real trade interest, but the team wants to fully evaluate all the quarterbacks in the NFL Draft before making a decision.
Huddle Up: Darnold could be a high-upside QB2 in fantasy if he lands in another situation. If he stays, though, he'll be a meager midrate QB2.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold can likely be acquired for a second-round pick and a mid-to-late-round pick, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Darnold could thrive in another setting. Keep tabs on him this offseason as a potential upside QB2.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold may receive trade interest from the Washington Football Team if the Jets decide to make him available this offseason.
Huddle Up: Washington used Alex Smith and Kyle Allen at quarterback this offseason but may want a long-term option at the position. Darnold has played well at times since joining the NFL and may need a change of scenery. Darnold likely will be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback no matter where he plays in 2021.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold has been a trade target for other teams this offseason, but the Jets have not decided on Darnold's future with the team at this point, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Jets have the second overall pick in the NFL Draft, so they could look to take a quarterback if they believe Darnold is not the answer. Darnold has played well at times since being drafted but is coming off a disappointing 2020 season. He probably can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback no matter where he plays next season.The Jets have the second overall pick in the NFL Draft, so they could look to take a quarterback if they believe Darnold is not the answer.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold's status with the team is uncertain, but head coach Robert Saleh believes Darnold has some untapped potential after watching tape on him.
Huddle Up: The Jets have the second overall pick and could select a quarterback depending on how they feel about Darnold. Fantasy players should monitor the situation because there is a chance that Darnold will be the starter for the Jets in 2021. He would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he keeps his job.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold is likely to be the team's starting quarterback next season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, who said he would be 'surprised' if Darnold was not the team's Week 1 starter.
Huddle Up: There was already some buzz about Darnold returning prior to the hiring of Robert Saleh and Mike LaFleur, but in the aftermath of that it sounds even more likely that Darnold is back as LaFleur is expected to implement a Shanahan-style offense that appears to be a fit for Darnold's skill set. It's a situation to watch in the coming months, but if Darnold remains in NYC he's someone to watch in the preseason.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold is viewed internally as 'good enough to build around,' in the opinion of ESPN's Todd McShay, who said that GM Joe Douglas is unlikely to draft a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft.
Huddle Up: McShay indicated that Douglas is likely to try and trade down if he can't get Trevor Lawrence, who is expected to be selected first overall by Jacksonville, and build around Darnold -- the USC product remains under team control for the next two seasons, though his cap figure in 2022 would be considerable. Given better weapons, Darnold could hold some late-round potential as a QB2.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) said he will not need to undergo surgery on his shoulder this offseason but does need time for the shoulder to heal.
Huddle Up: Darnold's future with the Jets is uncertain at this point, so fantasy players can monitor his status. He should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he is a starting quarterback for a team.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed 16-of-32 passes for 175 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 16 agaisnt the Cleveland Browns and he added seven runs for 20 yards.
Huddle Up: Darnold was mistake-free in this one, and he really jelled nicely with Jamison Crowder. The Jets have won two in a row, so they're out of the mix for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. That's important, as Clemson's Trevor Lawrence was believed to be the consensus top pick. Darnold might still have a future with Gang Green because of this two-game win streak.
