Sam Darnold, QB, New York Jets
Darnold finally cashed all the way in on a good matchup on Sunday, as he went 19-for-30 for 294 yards with four touchdowns and one interception against the Washington Redskins. He has topped 21 fantasy points in back-to-back games now, and his run of favorable matchups will keep rolling.
In Week 12 Darnold gets the Oakland Raiders, who entered Week 11 allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks (Yahoo! scoring). Then in Week 13 he gets the Cincinnati Bengals (third-most fantasy points to quarterbacks entering Week 11), followed by the Miami Dolphins (seventh-most fantasy points to quarterbacks entering Week 11) in Week 14.
Darnold’s schedule tightens up from there, with the Baltimore Ravens (Week 15), Pittsburgh Steelers (Week 16) and Buffalo Bills (Week 17) all going into Week 11 in the top-10 of the league against quarterbacks (Yahoo! scoring). But he’s a top-end streaming option for three more weeks, right into the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
