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 QB Zach Wilson completed 14 passes on 21 attempts for 140 passing yards with 1 TD and INT apiece in Week 1. The youngster relieved the injured Aaron Rodgers in Monday night's OT win vs. the Bills. The former No. 3 overall pick showed signs of why the franchise opted to replace him as the starter to begin with. WR Garrett Wilson batted the ball to himself with a couple of taps to record his receiving TD, if that says anything. Stay tuned for further updates regarding Rodgers' health ahead of Week 2 vs. the Cowboys. Jets HC Robert Saleh shared in the post-game press conference that "the MRI is probably going to confirm what [the Jets] already think" about the rumored Achilles injury for their starter. It's looking like fantasy managers will see Wilson start the rest of the way.

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.

Jets QB Mike White (ribs) is officially inactive for today’s game vs. the Dolphins. QB Joe Flacco gets the start; QB Zach Wilson is the backup.

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.

The Jets do not plan on shopping QB Zach Wilson this offseason, and the former #2 pick remains in the team's long-term plans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The team views Wilson as an incredibly hard worker, a good teammate and very smart," Rapoport writes. "He has handled his demotions well and kept working." A decent trade offer could change the Jets' plans, of course. We'll see what else they do at QB this offseason. QB Mike White is set to hit free agency in March.

Jets QB Mike White (ribs) has been medically cleared and will start this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks, insider Brian Costello reports. White's return comes after QB Zach Wilson was so bad in Thursday night's loss to the Jaguars that he was benched for QB Chris Streveler. The news is a boost for all of New York's skill-position guys, particularly WR Garrett Wilson.

At the beginning of Thursday, Chris Streveler wasn't even on the Jets' active roster. By the end of the night, he was running the offense. The team pulled QB Zach Wilson in the 2nd half of Thursday night's loss to the Jaguars after watching him complete 9 of 18 throws or 92 yards and an INT. Streveler closed out the game with 90 more yards (but no turnovers) on 10-of-15 passing and accounted for most of the team's rushing yardage. The former Cardinals QB ran 9 times for 54 yards. We'll see who's behind center for the Jets in a Week 17 trip to Seattle. We'd bet HC Robert Saleh is currently praying to the nearest deity that Mike White will be healthy enough to play.

10:30pm EST 12/22/22

Jets QB Zach Wilson was benched in favor of QB Chris Streveler in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars. Wilson completed just 9 of 18 passes for 92 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT against a bad Jacksonville defense (albeit in less-than-ideal conditions). We'd be surprised if Wilson found his way back onto the field again this season. We'll see if QB Mike White can get cleared for Week 17. If not, Streveler and QB Joe Flacco are options.

The forecast for tonight’s Jaguars-Jets game calls for light rain early, potentially getting heavier throughout the night. The bigger concern is the wind. We’re looking at sustained 15-20 mph winds with gusts of 30+ mph. It's ugly weather that figures to impact the passing and kicking games — while also possibly pushing both teams to run more than they would in better conditions. We’ve updated our Jaguars and Jets projections for the forecast.

Jets HC Robert Saleh confirmed on Tuesday that QB Zach Wilson will start Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars. QB Mike White (ribs) has still not been medically cleared. Wilson wound up compiling 317 yards and 2 TDs in last week's loss to the Lions -- but he completed just 51% of his passes, threw 1 INT and could have been picked off a few more times. Wilson remains a detriment to New York's offense. See where he and the Jets skill-position guys land in the Week 16 Rankings.

Jets QB Zach Wilson threw for 317 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's loss to the Lions. He completed just 18 of his 35 pass attempts (51.4%) and threw an INT. WR Garrett Wilson led the way with 9 targets, catching 4 for 98 yards. WR Elijah Moore finished 2nd in targets (7), catching 4 for 51 yards. WR Jeff Smith went 4-77 receiving on 5 targets. TE C.J. Uzomah snagged both of the team's TDs as his only 2 catches (on 2 targets). The Jets get upside matchups with the Jaguars and Seahawks the next 2 weeks. We'd still prefer not to trust Zach Wilson in fantasy football lineups, but they'll at least be good spots for his WRs.
