Jets' Sam Darnold: Pumped to work with Gase
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darnold is excited to work with new head coach Adam Gase, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports. "I think the stuff that Coach Gase does is amazing," Darnold said. "The scheme that he's able to create and to be able to put the defense in uncomfortable positions, which he does a lot, I think it is awesome and shows a lot about his creativity and his offensive mind.

The 40-year-old Gase will stay in the AFC East after producing a 23-25 record in three seasons as head coach of the Dolphins, with his offenses finishing in the bottom half of the league for both points and yards each season. The statistics don't provide much cause for optimism, but it can easily be argued Gase overachieved in winning 7.7 games per season with some brutal rosters that were further weakened by Ryan Tannehill's injuries (24 missed games). The current collection of talent isn't any better in New York, but the Jets do have a plethora of cap space as well as the No. 3 pick in the upcoming draft. The team has every opportunity to improve its situation around Darnold, who closed out his rookie season by completing 64 percent of his passes for 7.4 yards per attempt and a 6:1 TD:INT in four December games.

Jets' Sam Darnold: Caps rookie season with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darnold completed 16 of 28 passes for 167 yards while adding a 28-yard carry and losing a fumble in Sunday's 38-3 loss to New England. He finishes the season with 2,865 passing yards and a 17:15 touchdown to interception ratio.

Darnold ends his up-and-down rookie season on a down note, though the 28-yard rush was the longest of his career. He should undoubtedly return as the Jets' starting quarterback next season, and the team has oodles of cap space and a high draft pick to surround Darnold with more talent, as the poor play around him noticeably took a toll on the third overall pick's numbers.

Jets' Sam Darnold: Career game wasted by poor defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darnold completed 24 of 35 passes for 341 yards and three touchdowns while rushing three times for four yards in Sunday's 44-38 overtime loss to the Packers.

Darnold extended wide receiver Robby Anderson's touchdown streak to three games with a 33-yard connection in the second quarter, then added a five-yard score to Chris Herndon and a 20-yarder to Elijah McGuire, both in the third. Unfortunately for the rookie third overall selection, this career-high performance in the passing yards category was wasted by New York's undisciplined defense, as the Jets' 16 penalties for 172 yards helped keep the Packers in the game and spurred Green Bay's 24-3 run in the fourth quarter and overtime. Darnold threw for just 169 yards in the next game after topping the 300-yard mark back in Week 2, so he'll look to avoid a similar letdown in Week 17 against the Patriots.

Jets' Sam Darnold: Comeback bid falls short
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darnold completed 24 of 38 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns while rushing six times for 35 yards in Saturday's 29-22 loss to the Texans.

Darnold led the Jets to a 22-19 lead with five minutes left in the game, but the defense gave back the lead and the young quarterback was unable to put together another scoring drive. It's only the third time this season Darnold hasn't thrown an interception and he looked quite poised despite Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon struggling on the ground with 25 carries for 55 yards. Additionally, the rookie quarterback didn't appear to show any ill affects from the sprained right foot that plagued him in recent weeks. A matchup with the Packers awaits the Jets in Week 16.

Jets' Sam Darnold: Logs full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darnold (foot) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.

After missing three straight games with a sprained right foot, Darnold practiced fully throughout last week and gained clearance to start Sunday against the Bills. He departed in the first half after aggravating the injury, but re-entered the contest and helped guide the Jets to a 27-23 comeback victory. According to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com, Darnold split first-team reps with Josh McCown in the portion of Tuesday's practice open to the media, but the full participation listing suggests the rookie's health is on solid ground entering a tough Week 15 matchup with the Texans.
