Injury Knee - ACL
2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Knee - ACL
March 19, 2019
Darby (knee) expressed optimism regarding his chances of being ready for Week 1 of the 2019 season, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
ANALYSIS
Darby tore his ACL on Nov. 11, so a return in Week 1 would be relatively quick. He recently re-signed with the Eagles on a one-year contract. While he was the team's top cornerback prior to the injury, it may take him some time to fully get back to his old self. More clarity on his role entering the season will come once training camp kicks off.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
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.
