Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

Of the first round quarterbacks taken in the 2018 NFL draft, Darnold probably brings the least to the table out of the gate, but despite that he was atop the draft board for many experts who believed he should be the first overall pick. He's a big, strong quarterback that can move in the pocket and make all the throws, but he did have some issues with turnovers last season and will need to work at reading coverage and perhaps tweaking his mechanics a bit. That said, the ceiling is uber-high for the Jets new signal caller of the future, and he'll get to learn how to be a pro from Josh McCown and former first round pick Teddy Bridgewater, who is looking to resurrect his career after a devastating knee injury. In short, it's a pretty ideal situation for Darnold and big things should be on the horizon with an improving young defense and a franchise quarterback to build around. Look for the Jets to start surrounding Darold with offensive talent next offseason.

2018 Season Outlook

Proceed with caution on Darnold for redraft purposes, as he comes into camp behind two capable NFL quarterbacks and he's probably in the least pressure-filled situation of the the first round picks, even in New York. The Jets aren't going anywhere in 2018 and they have enough in McCown in Bridgewater that there's no need to throw Darnold to the wolves. Despite the conjecture that he'll play early, the Jets don't need to rush him and it wouldn't be surprising if he logged a few late season starts and not much more.
