Aaron Rodgers

Zach Wilson has somehow been able to hold onto the starting quarterback job for the New York Jets and probably due in large part to the defense keeping them in games. The Jets are on a three game win streak and the hope is they can remain in the playoff race in time for Aaron Rodgers to return.

The hope is that the former MVP can return at some point this season and if he does, then he could be a starter in fantasy football. If Rodgers does make it back, the Jets have games against the Washington Commanders and Cleveland Browns in Week 16 and Week 17 (which most leagues have their playoffs during these weeks). If your league has playoffs into Week 18, the Jets end the season against the New England Patriots.

The matchup against the Browns isn't great but the Commanders have struggled this year and Rodgers could be in line for a big week if he is ready to return. If your starting quarterback already has had their bye, it might be worth making Rodgers the backup and adding him now in hopes he can be ready for the playoffs.
