Jets WR Garrett Wilson delivered 2 catches, 83 yards, and 1 TD in Week 2. Wilson did most of his damage on a 68-yard catch-and-run in the second quarter. He added a 29.6% target share – tops on the team. Wilson gets another tough draw this week vs. New England, but on talent alone, he's tough to keep out of fantasy lineups.

An MRI confirmed that Jets QB Aaron Rodgers has a torn Achilles, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That ends Rodgers' season after just four snaps. Turning 40 in December, Rodgers' football future is uncertain. He's signed with the Jets for two more seasons, although he carries a $51.5 million cap hit in 2025. The Rodgers injury puts Zach Wilson back under center for now. We'll see if the Jets -- with Super Bowl aspirations -- make a move at QB. For now, all Jets skill-position players are fantasy losers.

Jets HC Robert Saleh said after Monday night's win over the Bills that the team fears QB Aaron Rodgers has a torn Achilles. He's scheduled for an MRI on Monday to confirm. "It's not good," Saleh added. A torn Achilles would end Rodgers' season -- and put the 39-year-old's football future in serious doubt. It'd also leave QB Zach Wilson as New York's starter. That'd obviously be a significant downgrade for all of the Jets' skill-position players.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson wrangled an incredible TD in Monday night's victory to go along with 5 catches for 34 receiving yards vs. the Bills. Teammate Allen Lazard led the team with 46 receiving yards on 2 catches. HC Robert Saleh shared in the post-game press conference that "the MRI is probably going to confirm what [the Jets] already think" is an Achilles injury for QB Aaron Rodgers. We'll learn more about those details on Tuesday. Should that be the case and Rodgers misses time, fantasy managers will have to significantly readjust expectations for Jets' pass-catchers in 2023. Stay tuned for more information.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson (ankle) will be limited in Wednesday's practice, sitting out team drills, per The Athletic's Zack Rosenblatt. Wilson sprained an ankle 13 days ago but is clearly on track to be back to 100% well before the start of the season. Consider his fantasy value unchanged.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers gushed over WR Garrett Wilson in an interview during Thursday night's Hall of Fame Game. "Garrett has the potential to really be special in this league for a long time," Rodgers said. "Because he's got all the right things you need. He's got incredible talent. He's got a great work ethic. And he's a freakin' great kid. ... Carries himself like a seasoned vet." Rodgers also compared Wilson's "traits" to WR Davante Adams' for the second time in the past few weeks. It sure sounds like Rodgers and Wilson are already vibing, which can only help Wilson's chances of building off an impressive rookie season.

Jets HC Robert Saleh told reporters Tuesday that WR Garrett Wilson (ankle) had a "good workout" and is expected to return to practice Saturday, according to Eric Allen of Jets 360 Productions. Wilson sustained a low-ankle sprain last Thursday. Assuming he does get back to practice less than 10 days after -- and still in early August -- we're not downgrading the young WR for the ankle issue. See where Wilson sits in our 2023 WR rankings.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson is dealing with a low-ankle sprain, HC Robert Saleh said. Wilson went down in Thursday's practice and has been sidelined since. He might miss another week or two, but he shouldn't be in any jeopardy of missing the start of the season. Consider Wilson's fantasy value unchanged for now.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson suffered an ankle injury in practice on Thursday, sending him off the field with a trainer. After practice, The Athletic's Zack Rosenblatt reported that Jets HC Robert Saleh isn't overly concerned, saying that Wilson will be okay. The 2022 Offensive Rookie of the Year seems to have dodged significant damage, allowing fantasy managers to breathe a sigh of relief. We anticipate a big year from Wilson following a campaign that saw him finish ninth in Pro Football Focus receiving grade, 16th in yards per catch, 14th in yards after catch per reception, and 23rd in yards per route run among 41 WRs who saw 40+ targets in 2022. We'll keep an eye on this situation should anything more serious develop. See where Wilson lands in our current WR rankings.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Garrett Wilson have been "lighting it up day in and day out" in training camp, according to SNY TV's Connor Hughes. It's not necessarily a surprise that a WR coming off a 1,103-yard rookie season is dominating camp. But it's nice to hear that Wilson's chemistry with Rodgers is already evident. We're projecting Wilson's 2023 numbers to improve across the board from last year.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers had high praise for WR Garrett Wilson as training camp opened on Thursday. "Davante [Adams] is in a category by himself still, but Garrett Wilson reminds me of him, as far as his ability to get in and out of breaks, and his quick twitch at the line of scrimmage," Rodgers said. It's especially noteworthy since Rodgers has never been one to artificially compliment his teammates. (Just ask Marquez Valdes-Scantling.) Wilson is coming off a 1,103-yard rookie season catching passes from QBs Zach Wilson, Joe Flacco, and Mike White. He could really explode with Rodgers at the helm.

Jets WR Allen Lazard’s contract calls for $22 million guaranteed, the most handed out to a free-agent pass catcher this offseason. The guys behind him: Jakobi Meyers ($21 million), JuJu Smith-Schuster ($16 million), and Odell Beckham ($15 million). Lazard set career highs last year in targets (100), catches (60), and yards (788), despite two missed games. He just wasn’t particularly efficient. In a sample of 41 WRs, he sat 19th in yards per catch, 30th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade, 32nd in yards per route run, and 35th in catch rate. Lazard’s contract says he’ll be the clear No. 2 WR behind Garrett Wilson. A history with Aaron Rodgers and OC Nathaniel Hackett also supplies an edge. Said Lazard (via the Jets’ official site): “For me, playing in the same offense really my entire career, having Coach Hackett every single year except for last year, and then be able to reunite again with him here, has been a rejuvenating feeling to be able to have him and his energy around.” Projected for 97 targets (in 16 games), Lazard hits the WR rankings as a spot-start WR3.

The Jets are hiring Nathaniel Hackett as their new OC, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Hackett was a disaster as Denver's HC this past season but had a successful stint as Green Bay's OC the previous 3 years. The Packers finished middle of the pack in total yards and points in Hackett's 1st season but climbed into the top 10 in both categories in 2020 and 2021. Those teams, of course, were quarterbacked by Aaron Rodgers, who's a big fan of Hackett. This move was presumably made by the Jets at least in part to help their chances of luring Rodgers to New York.

According to multiple reports, the Jets and OC Mike LaFleur are mutually parting ways. LaFleur jumped from the 49ers staff to the Jets when Robert Saleh took over as HC 2 seasons ago. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that other teams have inquired about LaFleur, so it sounds like this is more "parting" than firing. We'll see where LaFleur lands next and what he has to work with. It's tough to judge much from his 1st try at OC, with poor QB play limiting everything. We'll also see who the Jets pull in next ... and who starts at QB in 2023.

The Jets have ruled QB Mike White out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. He went from a full Wednesday practice to limited Thursday and then this, so the rib injury clearly remains a significant issue. He played as though that was the case at Seattle in Week 17. QB Joe Flacco will start, with Zach Wilson backing up, according to Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic. A healthy Flacco instead of a hurting White is probably better for the fantasy outlook of WR Garrett Wilson and the rest of the Jets' pass-catchers. Check our Week 18 fantasy football rankings to see where everyone sits.

Jets TE Tyler Conklin caught all 6 of his targets for 80 yards in Sunday's lopsided loss to the Seahawks. He tallied 35 more yards than any other Jet and doubled his nearest teammate in catches. TE C.J. Uzomah beat Conklin by 1 target but caught just 3 for 24 yards. WR Garrett Wilson led the team with 11 targets but managed only 3 receptions for 18 yards. The Jets -- now eliminated from the playoffs -- visit Miami for the regular-season finale. That has been a positive scoring matchup for TEs; neutral for WRs.

The Seahawks haven't played particularly well overall on defense this season, but they have given WRs difficulty in fantasy football. Seattle stands as the worst matchup for the position by adjusted fantasy points allowed. No WR has reached 10 PPR points against the Seahawks since Week 13. No WR has reached 75 yards receiving against them since Week 7, and just 3 have gotten there all season. Rookie CB Tariq Woolen has been the biggest factor, limiting players to a 56.4% catch rate and 74.6 passer rating on balls thrown into his coverage, according to Pro Football Focus. The matchup doesn't come close to knocking Jets lead WR Garrett Wilson out of starter range in our Week 17 fantasy football rankings. But it's well worth noting for DFS lineup-building. And we wouldn't go chasing any other Jets wideouts. The difficult matchup for WRs combined with the league-best scoring matchup for TEs could also turn Jets TE Tyler Conklin into a Week 17 sleeper.
