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 RB Breece Hall looked explosive in his first game back in NFL action, logging 10 carries for 127 yards in Monday’s OT victory vs. the Bills. Among his highlights are an 83-yard run he made at the beginning of the second quarter and a 20-yard reception. A fully healthy Hall likely would’ve taken that long run to the end zone, but it’s a great sign of future production to come nonetheless. Teammate Dalvin Cook was not quite as efficient in the contest. The veteran posted 13 carries for 33 rushing yards and 3 catches for 26 yards. It’s safe to assume the Jets’ coaching staff will continue to split the workload between the pair as the early season continues. Even so, Hall is the player that fantasy managers should trust between the two in Week 2 vs. the Cowboys.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers suffered an apparent left leg injury on his first possession in Monday night's game vs. the Bills. He headed immediately into the blue medical tent and was then carted back to the locker room. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: The Jets say Rodgers has an ankle injury and is questionable to return.

Update: Rodgers went for X-rays and now has a boot on his left foot, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Update: Rodgers has been ruled out. X-rays on the ankle came back clean, ESPN's Lisa Salters reports.

Jets RB Breece Hall (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 1. He practiced all week, though, including a full practice on Saturday. Hall is fully expected to play vs. the Bills on Monday night but figures to be on some type of touch count in his first action since last year's torn ACL. "We have a plan," HC Robert Saleh said. "I'm not going to talk about it here, but there's going to be a constant communication because what the plan is can be more, can be less, but we have an idea of what we want to get done. He has an idea of what he'd like to accomplish. But at the same time, communication -- constantly checking in to see where he's at, physically and mentally -- is going to be key." See where Hall sits in the Week 1 RB Rankings.

Jets RB Breece Hall (knee) was limited in Thursday's practice. He's fully expected to play vs. the Bills on Monday night -- but this is a reminder that Hall will likely be on some type of snap count coming off last October's ACL tear.

Jets HC Robert Saleh said Monday that RB Breece Hall and RB Dalvin Cook will play in the regular-season opener, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hall sat out practice for the day, but Saleh called it a maintenance day. He added that the Jets "will be smart with Hall in his return," according to Rapoport. That makes it tough to know just how many opportunities we can expect for the team's top back.

Jets WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) returned to practice on Tuesday. He ended up missing about a week but will be good to go for the season opener. Lazard should be New York's No. 2 WR this season, behind Garrett Wilson.

Jets HC Robert Saleh says the team has to "be smart" with RB Breece Hall as he comes back from last year's torn ACL. "I think in his mind, he probably feels like he can take 30 touches, but we just have to be smart with him, make sure we're constantly communicating with him and just being diligent." We're currently projecting about 10 total touches for Hall in Week 1 but will continue to keep an eye on the Jets' plans. Hall's volume figures to grow throughout the season, perhaps quickly and significantly.

Jets TEs Tyler Conklin and C.J. Uzomah split first-team work in Saturday's preseason game. Conklin played five snaps and ran two routes vs. Uzomah's six snaps and three routes, according to Pro Football Focus. We'll see what the rotation looks like early in the regular season, but Conklin will not be a viable Week 1 fantasy play.

Jets WR Allen Lazard sprained the AC joint in his shoulder in Wednesday's practice, HC Robert Saleh said. Lazard is expected to be ready for Week 1, Saleh added. The Jets just lost WR Corey Davis to retirement, so they're thinned out at the position right now. We'll let you know when Lazard gets back on the field.

Jets WR Corey Davis took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce that he's retiring from the NFL. HC Robert Saleh had shared earlier in the afternoon that Davis had stepped away from the team for personal reasons. Though various hamstring and groin injuries plagued Davis throughout his career, he was a reasonably productive player when healthy. The 5th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft played six seasons between the Titans and Jets, accumulating 273 catches, 3,879 receiving yards, and 17 TDs. With Davis gone, we project a small uptick in favor of WR Allen Lazard. Fellow wideout Mecole Hardman and the TEs should also see marginal improvements in their opportunity shares, but this news doesn't move the needle much for fantasy purposes. See how our WR rankings shake out in the aftermath of Davis' retirement.

Jets WR Corey Davis has left the team for personal reasons, HC Robert Saleh said Wednesday. Saleh wouldn’t say whether Davis will be back for Week 1, adding that he can take “however long he needs." We'll keep an eye on this and let you know when Davis returns. He's been no more than a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Jets RB Israel Abanikanda is expected to be out "a couple of weeks" with his thigh injury, HC Robert Saleh said Tuesday. When healthy, the rookie will be New York's third or fourth RB. He's off the redraft radar.

Jets RB Israel Abanikanda left Saturday's preseason game with an injury to his right thigh. ESPN's Rich Cimini said the rookie RB was putting no weight on the leg as he left the field early in the fourth quarter. We'll look for more info on his outlook. The rookie likely wouldn't be heading for much regular-season work even if healthy, though, after the Dalvin Cook signing.

Update: HC Robert Saleh said after the game it's merely a thigh contusion, Cimini reports. This shouldn't be a long-term issue.

Eagles Edge Haason Reddick is having surgery to address a thumb injury he sustained in Monday's practice. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says, "This is all so that he is ready for the start of the season." Perhaps Reddick opens the year at a little less than full strength. But it sounds like he should be ready for the opener. We've nudged Reddick down the IDP rankings but still like him in DL1 territory.

Jets HC Robert Saleh said Tuesday he's "very confident" RB Breece Hall will be ready for Week 1, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. This falls in line with everything else we've heard from Saleh about Hall, as well as his Tuesday activation from PUP. We'll obviously keep watching the RB throughout August and into the season. Hall did move down our RB rankings after the Dalvin Cook addition.

Jets RB Breece Hall (knee) has been activated from the PUP list. He'll be a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, according to The Athletic's Zack Rosenblatt. Hall is now nearly 10 months removed from his torn ACL. He's been setback-free in his rehab by all accounts and is now seemingly on track to play in the season opener. Exactly how big a role Hall plays out of the gate -- especially after Monday's addition of RB Dalvin Cook -- remains uncertain.

Jets beat writer Brian Costello believes the team must be "concerned" about the O-line, “particularly at the tackles.” This unit has struggled at training camp, including in today's joint practice with Carolina. Likely LT Duane Brown is on the PUP list. And RT Mekhi Becton remains a major wild card. “With Duane, he’s going to play well,” Rodgers said. “We got to figure out who the first five is going to be. So, a lot of guys in competition right now. It seems like they’re switching the tackles left and right, just about daily with Max [Mitchell] and Billy [Turner], just looking for consistency with those guys. I feel like the interior has been a bright spot, pretty consistent for us both the first and second group, we just need a little more consistency on the edge.” The Jets open the regular season vs. a deep Buffalo D-line.

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.
