Injury Knee - ACL
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Darby has missed vast stretches of games during his two-year run as an Eagle, with a torn ACL keeping him off the field after Week 10 of last season. Considering this particular injury occurred Nov. 11, there's a very real chance that he'll miss a handful of games once the campaign kicks off. When he receives clearance to return, Darby will be working under a one-year, prove-it deal, so the 25-year-old has the opportunity to revitalize a topsy-turvy career to date. Read Past Outlooks

Sees team work Sunday

Knee - ACL
August 18, 2019
Darby (knee) participated in 11-on-11 drills sporting a knee brace during Sunday's practice, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
ANALYSIS
Darby was able to make his first appearance of training camp in team work Sunday, after he was limited to individual drills to this point. The 24-year-old is still recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in early November last year, and is still hoping for a Week 1 return. The fact that he's back during team work is a step in the right direction, but a return for Week 1 might still be a bit optimistic at this point.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
2015
Darby missed half of 2017 due to a dislocated right ankle suffered in the first game of the season. In eight games, he produced at roughly the same clip he had during his first two pro campaigns, tallying 34 tackles, nine deflections and three interceptions, the latter number being good for a tie for second on the team and a career high despite the missed time. Now he returns as a starting cornerback and enters a contract year looking to build on those numbers. If healthy, he could be one of the better playmakers at the position in 2018.
Following Stephon Gilmore's departure to New England via free agency, Darby -- in his third NFL campaign -- now profiles at the Bills' top cornerback. He's coming off a 2016 season in which he recorded 69 tackles in 14 games. If he can snag some picks (which he did not last season), the 5-11, 193-pounder could merit IDP consideration in 2017.
Entering his second season, Darby should benefit from a full year in the Bills' system and a normal offseason as a professional. Already regarded as one of the top young corners in the league after registering 68 tackles, 21 pass defenses and two inteceptions last year, Darby has a high ceiling and room to grow into a true difference maker.
Darby was the Bills' 2nd round pick in 2015 and should step right in to bolster the talented Buffalo defense, most likely in the nickel or dime formation. He lacks elite size, but he has shown exceptional athleticism at Florida State as well as in an outstanding amateur track career.
