Sam Darnold will start in Week 6 against the Cowboys.
Darnold's first-team reps won't be all for naught this week as he was officially cleared by doctors. The Jets have been nothing short of disastrous without the 22-year-old under center, only ending their 39 scoreless-possessions streak once the Eagles muffed a punt return and fumbled inside their own 20 on Sunday. New York's 3.8 YPA in Luke Falk's three starts unsurprisingly ranked stone last by a full yard. Jury's out on Darnold's physical limitations in his first game back from mono, but he at the very least instills life (and hope) into Robby Anderson's and Jamison Crowder's fantasy outlooks moving forward. Consider Darnold himself a middle-of-the-road QB2 in this matchup against the Cowboys.
