Week 6: vs Indianapolis Colts
FBG says: Great matchup. Gradually, Sam Darnold is showing improvement, and his Week 5 romp over the Broncos has served as his best and most impactful pro game thus far. Darnold certainly wasn't efficient last Sunday, completing just 10 his 22 throws. In fact, he's hit on just 48% of his passes over his last 3 games, a Blaine Gabbert-esque number that simply has to improve. But against Denver, Darnold was finally able to get his deep threats involved in the game plan. He used his powerful arm to throw Robby Anderson open into two long scores last week, with fantastic ball placement into Anderson's hands in stride. Ultimately, though, Darnold is still immersed in growing pains. Both of last week's long throws to Anderson were through beaten, isolation coverage without any safety help. When asked to make tough downfield throws, Darnold still comes off wild and scattershot, and he's only producing minimally in the short game. There will be situational blow-ups like last week's, but on the whole, Darnold remains a low-volume, low-impact passer in a ho-hum offense, and not a fantasy option outside of two-quarterback leagues. As a result, none of his weapons can be trusted for fantasy purposes, either. There's still no reason whatsoever to fear the Colts pass defense. In fact, it's one of fantasy football's most inviting. Quarterbacks are completing 71% of throws against them, and both inside and outside receivers are feasting on their lack of secondary talent. Cornerback Pierre Desir is passable, but the rest of the unit is full of leaks. It's shallow, too, especially if starters Nate Hairston and Kenny Moore remain out. Allowing 2017 breakout Rashaan Melvin to leave town after his injury hasn't proven wise. And up front, the inconsistent pass rush hurts the secondary even further. Opposing pass games are able to pick their spots and attack this defense either underneath or downfield - or both, as we saw Thursday night.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 5 vs DEN (1 / 1 / 20 / 1 rec)
About the time when onlookers were wondering if Pryor's frequent lapses during routes had landed him on the bench, he appeared on the field and made a ridiculous one-handed catch on a somewhat overthrown Sam Darnold pass. On the play, Pryor first looked to be running a post route, but then switched and cut into more of a corner route. Darnold's throw was a bit too far, but Pryor jumped up and made a nice catch as he cruised into the end zone.
2018 Week 3 vs CLE (3 / 1 / 25 / 0 rec)
A week after Pryor had 85 yards receiver he all but disappeared. Pryor was on the field for 70 percent of the Jets offensive snaps, but saw just three targets two of which weren't great balls. He could be a red zone threat, but the Jets are ultra-conservative inside the 20s and frankly, given the way Pryor dogged a route in the end zone last week, which resulted in a pick, the Jets may be less concerned with rookie Sam Darnold than they are with Pryor.
2018 Week 2 vs MIA (8 / 4 / 84 / 0 rec)
Pryor made some OK plays, but his biggest impact came in a negative way. As the Jets were driving and in the red zone, Pryor ran a slant towards the uprights in the end zone, but either didn't run it hard enough or lost the ball while he was battling with the defender. As such he was not where he should have been for a touchdown, and instead the pass meant for him was intercepted. While this was a bad beat both for Pryor and the offense, Darnold kept going back to him, so clearly the quarterback is willing to give a player more than one chance and isn't afraid of seeing the same mistake twice.
2018 Week 1 vs DET (3 / 3 / 49 / 0 rec)
While Pryor was virtually invisible during the first half, he was targeted three times in the second half and caught all of them. His best catch of the night was on a 2 & 8 play where Pryor went deep and quarterback Sam Darnold hit him for a big gain. Pryor had to extend to catch the high throw which resulted from Darnold having to scramble, and held onto the ball when he took a big hit to send him out of bounds.
