Sam Darnold Expected To Start Against Bills

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold (shoulder) will start in Week 7 against the Bills, barring a setback in practice on Friday, according to a source. Darnold has been limited in practice this week, but it looks like he'll make his return after a two-game absence for the winless Jets. Buffalo's defense hasn't been nearly as good as they were in 2019 and are allowing the seventh-most fantasy points per game to the QB position, but it's hard to recommend any Jets offensive skill player in fantasy besides wide receiver Jamison Crowder. Darnold was 21-for-35 for 215 yards with a touchdown and interception in the Week 1 loss to the Bills. He's an uninspiring low-end QB2 in superflex leagues in his expected return on Sunday.

Sam Darnold A Lousy Option Against Bills

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold (shoulder) was able to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday. That's a good sign that Darnold could return against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7. He has missed each of the last two games with an AC joint sprain. Veteran Joe Flacco has looked horrendous as the starter, so they desperately need Darnold back. Sadly, the Jets offenses is terrible, so the return of Darnold doesn't give them that big of a boost. The Bills Defense was able to hold Darnold in check during Week 1, so expect a similar result here, assuming he plays.

Sam Darnold To Be Limited On Wednesday

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold (shoulder) will be limited in practice on Wednesday. It's a positive step for Darnold, who has missed the last two games with a sprained shoulder. Even if the 23-year-old gets cleared to return to the field this Sunday, he'll be hard to trust as a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues against the Bills. Darnold was 21-for-35 for 215 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the 27-17 loss to Buffalo back in Week 1. Veteran Joe Flacco hasn't been any better in the last two games in place of Darnold, going 39-for-77 for 381 yards, one touchdown and an interception against the Cardinals and Dolphins. The only player you should be using in your starting lineups for the 0-6 Jets is wide receiver Jamison Crowder.
