Sam Darnold Fantasy Analysis

  • Bell chooses Jets
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Jets have reached agreement with RB Le'Veon Bell. That positions him in a backfield with Elijah McGuire as the lead incumbent. Bell, of course, is coming off a full year away from football, so we'll have to track his progress in his return this offseason. He joins a Jets team, however, that is spending liberally on both offense and defense in free agency. Bell will make for a risky pick inside the 1st 2 rounds of fantasy football drafts, given that we don't know how good the Jets offense can be or what kind of target share Bell can expect. But he obviously carries as much upside as just about any player at the position. Bell's arrival gives another boost to QB Sam Darnold's 2nd-year outlook.Update: Schefter and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport report it's a 4-year deal worth $52.5 million in total money. Full Story

  • Crowder to join Jets
    The Jets have reached a deal with WR Jamison Crowder, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's not a great landing spot for Crowder's 2019 fantasy upside. The Jets already have WRs Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa in place, along with 2nd-year TE Chris Herndon. But Crowder disappointed big time in 2018, so things can't get much worse. His departure from Washington -- where HC Jay Gruden had expressed interest in re-signing him -- leaves targets for a WR corps that figures to rely on Josh Doctson and Trey Quinn, among others. Jets QB Sam Darnold, meanwhile, heads into his 2nd season with a solid-looking crew of pass-catchers.Update: Crowder reports it's a 3-year pact worth $28.5 million, including $17 million guaranteed.

  • Jets acquire Osemele
    The Raiders have traded G Kelechi Osemele and a 6th-round pick to the Jets for a 5th-rounder. It's a cost-cutting move for Oakland, who is about to hand WR Antonio Brown a big contract. Osemele is coming off a down 2018 that saw him miss 5 games and finish 61st among 77 Gs in Pro Football Focus' grades. But he'll turn just 30 in June and was 1 of PFF's top-graded Gs in each of the previous 4 seasons. He should be a big upgrade for the interior of New York's O-line. Full Story
