Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers revealed on The Pat McAfee Show on Wednesday, March 15, that he wants to play for the New York Jets, but that a trade has not been finalized because the Packers are "digging their heels in" when it comes to compensation.
Huddle Up: While it was thought the hold-up in a potential deal with the Jets was Rodgers, there have been rumblings in the past few days that it's actually the Packers' asking price that is holding things up; Rodgers has now confirmed that. Assuming something eventually gets done, Rodgers will be joining a better offense than the one he's leaving, assuming Breece Hall, Garrett Wilson and the rest of the team's best weapons are healthy. New York is also reportedly adding Allen Lazard, and Rodgers has reportedly told the Jets he wants them to target Odell Beckham Jr. Even without OBJ, Rodgers has a chance to return to QB1 status in New York, but for now we'll call him a high-end QB2, which is partly based on what we saw last season.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has indicated that he would like the New York Jets to attempt to sign free-agent WR Odell Beckham Jr. (Rams) and impending free-agents WR Allen Lazard (Packers), WR Randall Cobb (Packers) and TE Marcedes Lewis (Packers) before making a decision on a possible trade to the Jets, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Jets have been linked to Lazard, Cobb and Lewis recently, so it seems like they are looking to help Rodgers make his decision easier. Rodgers can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he accepts a trade to the Jets.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to be traded to the New York Jets as soon as he announces his intention to play in 2023, according to Trey Wingo of Pro Football Network.
Huddle Up: Per Wingo, Rodgers to the Jets is "done." The compensation will likely be a Day 2 pick and some kind of cap relief for New York since the Jets have about $8.5 million in cap space and Rodgers' current cap hit would be about $31.6 million. Assuming Rodgers agrees to play, he'll have one of the best supporting casts at his disposal in several years with Garrett Wilson, Elijah Moore and Breece Hall. If this trade happens, there is a distinct chance he might return to the fantasy QB1 ranks in 2023.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' meeting with the New York Jets left the Jets' brass confident they can acquire Rodgers, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Rodgers will be a low-end QB1 anywhere he goes, but going to the Jets might give him more receiver upside.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to meet with a contingent of New York Jets' team officials Tuesday, March 7, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano.
Huddle Up: Graziano notes it is unclear whether the meeting will result in a trade. Part of the uncertainty stems from the fact Rodgers has yet to decide what he will do in 2023. Another complication is the amount of dead money the Packers would absorb if he is traded (approximately $40.3 million). The Jets are plenty motivated to get a deal done if Rodgers still wants to play football, so things could move quickly if the four-time MVP likes what he hears from the Jets. Stay tuned.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is drawing interest from the Carolina Panthers, who have reached out to the Packers about a trade for the veteran signal-caller, per ESPN's Adam Schefter on Thursday, March 2.
Huddle Up: Without a ton of playmakers on the offensive side of the ball, the Panthers as currently constructed would, at best, be a lateral move for Rodgers in terms of his fantasy stock, which isn't high to begin with. However, chances are Rodgers will be looking for a team in more of a win-now situation. The veteran will start 2023 as a QB2, and how high on that spectrum he lands will depend upon the situations he ends up in.

Green Bay Packers QB Jordan Love received some praise from general manager Brian Gutekunst, who expressed excitement for the 2020 first-round pick. "We're excited about him," Gutekunst said on Tuesday, Feb. 28. "I've expressed to a lot of people that he needs to play. That's the next step in his progression. Jordan's done a great job, worked really hard so he's doing everything we're asking."
Huddle Up: Gutekunst also revealed there was nothing new on the Aaron Rodgers front, so the Packers remain in neutral. Love's future in Green Bay depends upon what Rodgers does, and there's a chance he gets dealt if the veteran sticks around. No matter where he lands, Love remains an intriguing player in 2023, as the young signal-caller has some upside thanks to his ability to run, but the jury is still very much out on him overall. Regardless, Love should be rostered in dynasty formats.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to be back with the team in 2023 and all the talk of him leaving is being overhyped, per source on Wednesday, Feb. 22.
Huddle Up: Rodgers emerged from his darkness retreat a few days early and the expectation is that he'll make a decision on his future soon. This report would indicate that Green Bay is the most likely choice for him, but it's also possible the Packers want to move on and see what they have in Jordan Love. Rodgers doesn't have a no-trade clause, but he could threaten retirement if dealt to a team he doesn't want to play for. No matter where he lands, Rodgers enters 2023 as a QB2 after a down season. How high he lands on the QB2 spectrum will depend upon where he plays.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones restructured his contract for the 2023 season, according to a source Friday, Feb. 17. Jones is now slated to make $11 million in salary, which includes $8.52 million guaranteed as a signing bonus.
Huddle Up: This is good news for Jones, who may have been released without this restructue. While the future of Aaron Rodgers is unknown, Jones should remain a boom/bust RB2 for the upcoming campaign.
Posted 2/12/2023 9:48 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is receiving trade interest from the New York Jets, and the Jets have contacted the Packers about his availability, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Rodgers has not decided on his playing future but could be traded if he decides to continue playing. He would have a good group of receivers if he was traded to the Jets and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some fantasy leagues.
Posted 2/11/2023 1:10 am GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Jordan Love is ready to be the starting quarterback for the Packers if QB Aaron Rodgers does not return, according to RB Aaron Jones.
Huddle Up: Love has received limited playing time since entering the NFL and posted 195 yards and one touchdown in four games this season. Fantasy players likely will need to see Love play well before considering him a starting option in leagues.
Posted 2/08/2023 1:25 am GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers revealed he will make a decision about his future after a four-day "darkness retreat" following Super Bowl Sunday, he said on "The Pat McAfee Show" on Tuesday, Feb. 7. Rodgers also revealed that retirement is definitely on the table.
Huddle Up: Likely factoring into his decision is the possibility that the Packers trade the veteran signal-caller, which would mean he could be starting over with a new team at 39. Rodgers is coming off a down year in which he lost the status of every-week starter in fantasy, but there's no reason to believe he can't return to elite form in the right situation.
Posted 1/24/2023 7:32 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will almost certainly be traded to an AFC team if the team ends up dealing him this offseason - a possibility the team will "explore."
Huddle Up: Rodgers does not have a no-trade clause in his contract, so the Packers don't need his permission to be dealt to any team. Green Bay is also in a bad cap situation entering the 2023 season, so a trade to get about $60 million of guaranteed money moved would be a good thing for its cap situation. Among the most interested AFC teams figure to be the New York Jets, Las Vegas Raiders, Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts. Unlike last year, it feels as though a trade could happen. Stay tuned.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers getting traded this offseason is 'a very real scenario', ESPN's Adam Schefter said on Saturday, Jan. 21.
Huddle Up: Here we are again. If the Packers do decide to trade their quarterback, they'll have to find someone to absorb his massive contract. However, chances are there will be more than enough teams falling over themselves to acquire him. And, if he does get traded, that opens the door for Jordan Love to start in Green Bay. Despite the fact that he's turning 40 next December and coming off a down year, Rodgers deserves the benefit of the doubt that he can bounce back in a better situation than the lackluster one he found himself in 2022. Meanwhile, fantasy managers who have been very patient with Love may finally get paid off in 2023.

Green Bay Packers WR Christian Watson ranked third among rookies with an average of 14.9 yards per catch, and his 6.4 yards after the catch average led all rookies.
Huddle Up: Watson came to life in the second half of the year, and he finished his rookie season with nine total touchdowns. His arrow is pointing up heading into next season, especially if Aaron Rodgers remains in Green Bay.
Posted 1/17/2023 8:48 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers told The Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday, Jan. 17, that he is "not mentally or emotionally at that point to give" an answer about playing in 2023.
Huddle Up: It is a question the media seems to feel it needs to ask even though Rodgers' season just ended a little over a week ago and one he probably will not have an answer to until after the Super Bowl. Rodgers easily had his worst season in over 10 years, although the argument could be made that had as much to do with the rotating cast of young players he had at receiver as much as it did with Davante Adams' absence or Rodgers' age (39). While retirement is a real option, it seems more realistic that he will play at least one more year. Jordan Love waits in the wings.
Posted 1/13/2023 8:08 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones is expected to return to the team next season despite his current cap hit of roughly $20 million in 2023, according to general manager Brian Gutekunst.
Huddle Up: Gutekunst did not rule out a restructuring of Jones' contract, which would have to happen with Aaron Rodgers' huge cap hit also on the books. Jones looked very good again this season despite dealing with knee, shin and ankle injuries, but he is already 28 years old, making him a prime candidate for decline moving forward. Jones should be considered a moderate-risk, high-upside RB2 for fantasy purposes in 2023.
Posted 1/13/2023 5:27 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to "take some time" to weigh his options for the future, general manager Brian Gutekunst told reporters Friday, Jan. 13.
Huddle Up: Rodgers is still under contract for one more season while Jordan Love enters the final year of his rookie contract. It seems like it will be another offseason of waiting to see what Rodgers does. If he does return, it's likely he's a QB2 again.
Posted 1/06/2023 11:40 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers WR Christian Watson (hip) was limited in practice all week but was removed from the injury report for Week 18 on Friday, Jan. 6.
Huddle Up: Watson has cooled off since tallying 15 catches for 313 yards and seven touchdowns from Weeks 10-13. He's still a strong flex option with upside, though.
Posted 1/06/2023 11:34 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (thumb, knee) was a full participant in practice for the second-straight day on Friday, Jan. 6, and carries no designation for Week 18.
Huddle Up: Even with the Packers scoring 41 points last week against the Minnesota Vikings, Rodgers still put up pedestrian numbers. The Week 18 matchup against the Detroit Lions looks like a juicy one, as this game could feature a lot of points and production, but there's been nothing to suggest Rodgers can capitalize in such a situation. The veteran quarterback is nothing more than a fringe starting option in 12-team or deeper leagues.
Posted 1/06/2023 11:27 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee, ankle) was a limited participant in practice all week but was removed from the injury report for Week 18 on Friday, Jan. 6.
Huddle Up: Despite being locked in a timeshare with A.J. Dillon and a lack of rushing touchdowns (two), Jones has managed to rank as RB8 overall this season, mostly thanks to his passing game usage. He's a low-end RB1 for Week 18.
Posted 1/06/2023 12:29 am GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee, thumb) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Rodgers is not putting up the numbers he did last season but still ranks in the top 10 in the NFL with 25 passing touchdowns. He may be part of a high-scoring game this week against the Detroit Lions and can be a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.
Posted 1/06/2023 12:25 am GMT
Green Bay Packers WR Christian Watson (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Watson was able to play last week despite missing most of the practice week and should be able to handle his normal workload in Week 18. He has become a big part of the passing game recently and can be a starting option in all leagues if active.
Posted 1/06/2023 12:21 am GMT
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (ankle, knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Jones will be ready to play despite the limited practice and will continue to share playing time with AJ Dillon. He has still been productive despite the shared playing time and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.
Posted 1/05/2023 7:19 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee, thumb) returned to practice Thursday, Jan. 5, after he was listed as "did not practice" on the team's estimated practice report Wednesday, Jan. 4.
Huddle Up: Nothing to see here, as the 39-year-old has yet to miss the game this season due to his injuries. Rodgers has surprisingly only thrown for one touchdown in each game during the team's four-game winning streak, adding to what was already a disappointing fantasy season for him. This weekend, he will get a chance to make up for one of his worst games as a pro when he threw three interceptions in a Week 9 loss to the Detroit Lions, who have been the best matchup for fantasy quarterbacks this season. With all of the uncertainty at quarterback this weekend, Rodgers could be a viable low-end QB1 in larger leagues.
Posted 1/05/2023 12:55 am GMT
Green Bay Packers WR Christian Watson (hip) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 4. The Packers did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Watson was able to play in the last game despite the injury and probably will be available for the final regular season game. He can be a starting option in all leagues if active for the game.
Posted 1/05/2023 12:52 am GMT
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (ankle, knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 4. The Packers did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Jones is coming off his fifth 100-yard game of the season and should see a good amount of touches again this week. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.
Posted 1/01/2023 9:00 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers WR Christian Watson (hip) is officially active for the Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Watson did not do much during practice this week but will be involved in the passing game this week. He has been playing very well recently and can be a starting option in fantasy leagues.
