After dealing for QB Sam Darnold, the Panthers have given QB Teddy Bridgewater permission to seek a trade, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "Carolina is open to Bridgewater returning, but will give him a chance to have a say in his future," Rapoport adds. Bridgewater straddles the line between quality NFL starter and backup, so it's unclear how much interest there will be in him on the trade market. The takeaway here, though, is that the Panthers are planning on handing the keys to Darnold.
The Jets traded QB Sam Darnold to the Panthers in exchange for a 2021 6th-round pick and 2nd and 4th-rounders next year. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Carolina was the "sole suitor" for Darnold -- hence the relatively cheap price tag. Darnold, of course, has been largely disappointing since going 3rd overall in 2018, completing 59.8% of his passes, averaging 6.6 yards per attempt and tossing 39 INTs vs. 45 TDs. He's gotten little help from his coaches or supporting cast. But Darnold has not fared well in Pro Football Focus' passing grades, ranking 30th, 27th and 35th over the past 3 seasons. He's a fine gamble for the Panthers to make, but Darnold certainly isn't a lock to emerge as the team's long-term starter. In fact, he'll need to beat out QB Teddy Bridgewater for the 2021 starting job -- although we do consider Darnold the favorite there. The Jets, meanwhile, are widely expected to take BYU QB Zach Wilson with the 2nd overall pick later this month.
Jets QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) will start against the Dolphins on Sunday, HC Adam Gase announced. Darnold has been out since Week 8 and has averaged just 174 yards and .5 TDs passing in 6 games this season. He's a low-end QB2 for Week 12, but Darnold's return should be good news for WR Jamison Crowder.
Jets HC Adam Gase named QB Joe Flacco his starter for Sunday's game against the Chargers. QB Sam Darnold's throwing shoulder still isn't back to 100%. Flacco turned in the Jets' best QB performance of the season last time out, chucking for 262 yards and 3 scores vs. the Patriots. Still, he'd be a desperation Week 11 fantasy play.
The Jets don't expect QB Sam Darnold to play Monday night against the Patriots after he aggravated his right shoulder injury in practice this week. That will mean a 3rd start for Joe Flacco, who managed 195 yards against the Cardinals in Week 5 and 186 against the Dolphins in Week 6. For the season, Flacco is averaging just 5.0 yards per pass attempt. He's not a significant downgrade vs. Darnold, though, if you're considering any Jets wideout for your lineup this weekend.
Jets QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) did not practice on Thursday. He reportedly aggravated his previous throwing-shoulder injury last week. The Jets expect Darnold to play vs. the Patriots on Monday night, but he should be nowhere near fantasy lineups.
Jets QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Bills. He’s back after a 2-game absence but isn’t a fantasy option, especially with WR Jamison Crowder out.
Jets QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) will start today's game against the Bills, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Consider him an upgrade over QB Joe Flacco for the Jets offense, but Darnold isn't a fantasy option.
Jets QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills after a limited week of practice. If he can't go, QB Joe Flacco will get another start. You should be avoiding the situation in fantasy.
Jets QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) will be limited and on a "pitch count" in Wednesday's practice, HC Adam Gase said. It gives Darnold a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Bills. Of course, you should continue to avoid Jets QBs in your fantasy lineups.
Jets QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. The tanking Jets have no reason to rush Darnold back. QB Joe Flacco gets another start after completing 55% of his 33 passes for 195 yards and 1 TD in last week's loss to Arizona.
ESPN's Rich Cimini reports that Jets QB Sam Darnold "could miss more than one game" with the sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder. The Jets have already ruled him out for today's game against the Cardinals, leaving Joe Flacco to start. We'll see about Darnold's status for a Week 6 visit to the Chargers.
The Jets are expected to start QB Joe Flacco against the Cardinals this Sunday, according to multiple reports. That indicates QB Sam Darnold isn't ready to practice after injuring his throwing shoulder in last Thursday's loss to the Broncos. Given that you shouldn't be starting any offensive Jets player beyond WR Jamison Crowder -- and perhaps RB Le'Veon Bell, if he's ready -- this news shouldn't affect much for fantasy owners. The matchup for the Cardinals defense might even be a little better, with less of a scrambling threat in the pocket. Flacco last started nearly a year ago -- October 27, 2019 -- for Denver.
The Jets aren't planning to play QB Sam Darnold against the Cardinals this weekend, according to The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta. Darnold suffered an AC joint sprain in his throwing shoulder in last week's loss to Denver. He returned to finish out that one and reportedly wants to play this weekend -- but the team is leaning toward holding him out. That'd leave Joe Flacco under center. The Jets offense figures to continue struggling either way.
Jets QB Sam Darnold played through a sprained throwing shoulder in Thursday night's loss to the Broncos, HC Adam Gase said. Darnold got slammed to the turf on that shoulder by Broncos LB A.J. Johnson and was in obvious discomfort. He went back to the locker room with trainers and missed a series. But Darnold returned for the rest of the game and looked unaffected by the shoulder issue. He should be fine for Week 5.
The Jets have signed QB Joe Flacco to a 1-year deal. It's worth $1.5 million with another $3 million available through incentives. Flacco is still recovering from April neck surgery and isn't expected to be cleared until "mid-September," according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. A healthy Flacco should slide in as QB Sam Darnold's backup. Darnold has dealt with a sprained foot, mono, a toe injury and another foot injury through 2 NFL seasons.
The Jets added Baylor WR Denzel Mims in the 2nd round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The 6’3, 207-pounder blew up the Combine, clocking a 4.38-second 40 time and registering marks in the 84th percentile or better in the vertical, broad and 3-cone. Mims finished with a 95th percentile SPARQ score. That athleticism shows up on tape. He has explosive acceleration, plus speed and excellent body control to reel in off-target throws. Mims broke out with a 61-1,087-8 line as a 19-year-old sophomore in 2017, took a step back to 55-794-8 in 2018 but rebounded to tally 66 catches, 1,020 yards and 12 TDs last year. The biggest knocks against him are inconsistent hands and a limited route tree. Mims dropped 13% of his catchable targets over the past 2 seasons. And over 46% of his targets and nearly 45% of his yardage last year came on ‘go’ and ‘hitch’ routes, according to Pro Football Focus. “He’s got vertical speed, he does have tracking skills and he understands how to use his size in the red zone,” an anonymous scout told The Athletic’s Bob McGinn. “He’s going to need a lot of work on how to run routes … He’s got inconsistent hands. He’s going to need work on how to get off press.” This is a strong value pick for the Jets, though — and a nice landing spot for Mims. He has a shot to earn a significant 2020 role alongside Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman. And Mims could emerge as QB Sam Darnold’s long-term #1 WR.
