Darnold has decided to skip his senior season at USC and enter the 2018 NFL Draft.
ANALYSIS
Despite being somewhat silenced by the Buckeyes during the Cotton Bowl, Darnold is expected to be one of the top quarterbacks off the board in the draft. He completed 303 of his 480 attempts for 4,143, 26 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. The redshirt sophomore also completed 63.1 percent of his passes and averaged 8.63 yards per attempt in the campaign.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
It might seem like a slight to rank Darnold this low when he's the consensus favorite to be the first pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, but it's solely because USC's offense doesn't play with the tempo of other quarterbacks in this range. Indeed, if these rankings were simply about talent, Darnold would be at the top. But he plays in an offense that averaged just 32.2 passes per game in the regular season, and he doesn't run enough to make up for it. At the least, Darnold will be efficient and nearly matchup-proof after throwing 31 touchdowns on 366 passes last year.
