- Rodgers to McAfee: 'Interesting decisions' coming if Jets stay in playoff hunt

News: 19 hours agoRodgers (Achilles) won't practice Wednesday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Spin: His absence reportedly was planned, though prior reports had suggested that Rodgers would practice on consecutive days this week. That still might happen Thursday and Friday, though a return to game action during the 2023 season appears to be highly unlikely with the Jets sitting at 4-8 after a loss to Atlanta this past Sunday. After a two-game benching, Zach Wilson will reclaim the Jets' starting quarterback job Week 14 against Houston.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Rodgers was traded to the Jets after spending his first 18 NFL seasons with the Packers. Rodgers is coming off easily the worst fantasy campaign of his career, having finished 25th in points per game after previously never finishing worse than 13th (and worse than ninth only once). Shockingly, Rodgers' best weekly finish was ninth in Week 10 and a whopping 32 QBs had more top-10 fantasy weeks. Granted, his supporting cast wasn't very good (29 dropped passes ranked third), but Rodgers threw 12 INTs (his most since 2008) and had a career-worst showing as a rusher (34-94-1). The 39-year-old has a respectable supporting cast in New York (led by top WR Garrett Wilson), but he's no longer an elite fantasy option and is safest as a fringe QB1.
