New York Jets Fantasy Spin

Sam Darnold (toe) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice. Darnold's toe "injury" is not an issue heading into Sunday's game with the Jaguars. Coming off one of the worst quarterback performances you will ever see, Darnold will be looking to rebound mentally as much as physically in Week 8. He put on an admirable performance before the media on Thursday. The second-year pro definitely has his wits about him. Darnold is a low-end QB2 following last week's fiasco.

Jacksonville Jaguars Fantasy Spin

Dede Westbrook (shoulder) isn't expected to practice again Thursday. Westbrook is tentatively expected to play through his shoulder injury again in Week 8, but he's clearly operating at less than 100%. Gardner Minshew has focused the overwhelming majority of his target distribution this season on Westbrook (54 targets), D.J. Chark (48), Leonard Fournette (38) and Chris Conley (33). Westbrook's 6-103-0 performance in Week 7 was a nice reminder of what the talented third-year WR is capable of producing with a good matchup, while Chark has failed to clear 60 yards or find the end zone in consecutive weeks. Chark remains the superior fantasy option thanks to his more fantasy-friendly target share as the offense's featured deep-threat WR, but the disparity between his and Westbrook's production likely won't be as big as we saw in the first month of the season moving forward.
