Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) has been designated to return from IR. It means he'll be back on the practice field this week. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said on Sunday that Rodgers is still targeting a Week 16 return -- but we remain skeptical that he'll play again this season for a Jets team without a realistic chance to make the playoffs. We'll keep you updated on the situation. If Rodgers does return, it'd be excellent news for the late-season fantasy prospects of RB Breece Hall and WR Garrett Wilson.
Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) is still hoping to get back on the field for the Week 16 game against the Commanders, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. (What QB wouldn't want to play against that pass defense?!) There's a chance that Rodgers returns to practice this coming week, per Rapoport, although getting back on the practice field the following week is considered more likely. This is a bit of a surprise since earlier reports said Rodgers would only return if the Jets were in the playoff hunt. They have less than a 1% chance to make it after Friday's loss to the Dolphins, according to The New York Times' model. But Rodgers is obviously out to prove something with this return from a torn Achilles. And it'd be nice to build some positive momentum heading into 2024. Rodgers would be tough to trust in fantasy lineups if he does make it back. But it'd be excellent news for WR Garrett Wilson and RB Breece Hall's late-season fantasy value.
Jets QB Tim Boyle will start next weekend's game vs. the Falcons, HC Robert Saleh said Saturday. Why? We're not sure. Boyle was predictably bad in Friday's loss to the Dolphins, throwing for 179 yards, one TD, and two INTs. He was sacked seven times. Boyle at least connected with WR Garrett Wilson on seven of 10 attempts for 44 yards and a score. Volume will keep Wilson in the WR2/3 mix for Week 13.
Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson has run out of words to describe the Jets' offensive struggles.
The New York Jets dropped to 4-7 on the season, after suffering a 34-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins at MetLife Stadium on Black Friday.
