Bottom Line

A Week 1 Achilles tear robbed us of seeing Rodgers in 2023.

Back healthy, we’re optimistic he can provide fantasy value this fall.

But should you count on him as a weekly QB1? Nah.

This offense carries plenty of question marks beyond Garrett Wilson. Can the O-line hold up? And do the Jets get enough out of guys like Mike Williams and rookie Malachi Corley?

Mix in some concerns at OC, and Rodgers is best drafted as a QB2/spot-starter.

What We Learned Last Year

  • Rodgers tore his left Achilles tendon in Week 1.
    • Rodgers had a "speed bridge" procedure with hopes of speeding up recovery time, but ultimately, he missed all 17 games.
  • This followed a 2022 in which Rodgers finished as the QB13; 22nd in points per game.
    • His 17.9 fantasy PPG marked his lowest output as a starter.
    • He posted his highest INT rate (2.2%) since 2017.
    • His QBR (41.3) finished at a career low.
  • The 2023 Jets fell off a cliff without Rodgers.
    • While Garrett Wilson delivered as the WR1, the Jets' second most productive WR was Allen Lazard ... with only 23-311-1.

What to Expect in 2024

  • Rodgers turns 42 in December.
    • Going back to 2000, only 2 QBs (Tom Brady and Brett Favre) have finished top-12 in fantasy at age 40+.
  • In January, Rodgers said he anticipates playing beyond 2024. Rodgers is under contract for 2025.
  • For this season, the Jets upgraded their WR corps by adding Mike Williams and Round 3 rookie Malachi Corley.
    • Williams is a bit of a projection after suffering a left ACL tear in Week 3 of ‘23. However, he’s expected to be ready for Week 1.
    • If healthy, Williams, 29, should add value as a contested catch/red zone asset.
    • Corley brings a nasty run-after-catch skill set and an impressive production profile from Western Kentucky.
    • Rodgers called him his “favorite” rookie WR in May.
  • The O-line gives us the biggest cause for concern.
    • New York patched holes with veterans OTs Morgan Moses and Tyron Smith. Both guys are 33, and Smith carries a lengthy injury history.
    • GM Joe Douglas added insurance in Round 1 with talented pass-protector Olu Fashanu.
  • OC Nathaniel Hackett returns for year two as OC.
    • He brings a lengthy history alongside Rodgers. Despite a poor showing in ‘23, Rodgers defended his long-time friend in May.
    • Here’s what the future Hall of Famer shared. “Well, you should trust me and I trust Nathaniel. So, to me, that’s end of story. There’s been a lot of BS that’s been said out there. There’s a lot of things that have gone on the last couple years that he’s dealt with that I think he’s handled very professionally…”

Mike Williams, WR NYJ

2:46pm EDT 6/11/24

Mike Williams could be limited early in the season after torn ACL

Jets HC Robert Saleh suggested that WR Mike Williams might play limited snaps early this season. He's working back from a torn ACL suffered last September.

Jets HC Robert Saleh said Wednesday that QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) won't play again this season. That's no surprise with the 5-9 Jets eliminated from the postseason picture. Rodgers was activated from IR, though, so that he can continue practicing the rest of the way. He should be able to participate in the offseason program and is on track to be ready for the start of the 2024 campaign.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers admitted on the Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday that his Achilles still isn't at 100%. He expects to be there in another few weeks. That's not at all a surprise considering he's just a little more than three months removed from the injury. What would be a surprise is if the 5-9 Jets put Rodgers back on the field this season. With QB Zach Wilson in concussion protocol, QB Trevor Siemian is the favorite to start Sunday's game vs. the Commanders.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) is likely to be medically cleared to play in Week 16, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's still unclear if Rodgers will return for a Jets team with a slim chance at the playoffs. But the fact that he's set to be cleared just a little more than three months after tearing his Achilles is borderline miraculous. We're still betting against Rodgers playing again this season, but he'll be ready to go for the 2024 campaign.

A source tells NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) is "unlikely" to play again this season. Rodgers got back on the practice field this week -- less than three months after tearing his Achilles. But the thought all along was that he'd only play again if the Jets were still in the playoff hunt. At 4-7, they'd likely need to win out to earn a postseason berth. So we'll be forced to watch more Tim Boyle or Zach Wilson or Trevor Siemian the rest of the way. Rodgers is at least on track to return to save WR Garrett Wilson and RB Breece Hall in 2024.
