Aaron Rodgers still targeting Week 16 return

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) is still hoping to get back on the field for the Week 16 game against the Commanders, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. (What QB wouldn't want to play against that pass defense?!) There's a chance that Rodgers returns to practice this coming week, per Rapoport, although getting back on the practice field the following week is considered more likely. This is a bit of a surprise since earlier reports said Rodgers would only return if the Jets were in the playoff hunt. They have less than a 1% chance to make it after Friday's loss to the Dolphins, according to The New York Times' model. But Rodgers is obviously out to prove something with this return from a torn Achilles. And it'd be nice to build some positive momentum heading into 2024. Rodgers would be tough to trust in fantasy lineups if he does make it back. But it'd be excellent news for WR Garrett Wilson and RB Breece Hall's late-season fantasy value.
