Aaron Rodgers556.3364.44088.829.7610.0136.8106.71.38281.52
Zach Wilson35.520.1252.11.10.994.319.40.2215.76

Aaron Rodgers: After winning back-to-back NFL MVP awards in 2020 and 2021, Rodgers numbers (without Davante Adams) were well below his career averages across the board in 2022 — 64.6% (65.3% career average), 4.8 TD% (6.2%), 2.2 INT% (1.4%), 6.8 Y/A (7.7) and 91.1 passer rating (103.6). Regardless of how long the next era of his career lasts, Rodgers joins a Jets team that has a better supporting cast than he had last year in Green Bay.


Breece Hall190.5857.35.7238.8323.42.1184.39
Michael Carter54.1227.21.3532.3238.71.278.04
Zonovan Knight85.33542.1311.791.20.767.35
Israel Abanikanda45.5191.11.09645.60.335.01

Breece Hall: Before Hall tore his ACL, his NFL career was off to a great start. The rookie from Iowa State averaged 5.8 yards per carry and 11.5 yards per reception through seven games. His workload had jumped considerably in Weeks 4-6 (61 touches) from Weeks 1-3 (34). Who knows how good his rookie season would have been if the injury hadn't happened? There are lots of reasons for fantasy managers to be excited about Hall's long-term outlook, but it wouldn't be a shock if he starts the 2023 season slowly as he works his way back from injury. Clouding the outlook for the backfield was Dalvin Cook's visit at the end of July, even if there is "no timeline for a signing."

Michael Carter: Carter had double-digit touches in eight of the first nine games last season, but he had only 28 touches — 15 carries for 32 yards and 13 catches for 79 yards — over the final five games. Various other backs (Hall, James Robinson and Zonovan Knight) had games where they handled larger workloads than Carter last season and there is speculation that Carter could be the odd man out if the team signs Dalvin Cook.

Zonovan Knight: Knight wasn't active until Week 12, but he handled 98 touches (85/300/1 rushing and 13/100 receiving) over the final seven games of the season.

Israel Abanikanda:'s Lance Zierlein comped Abanikanda to Kansas City's Isiah Pacheco before the NFL Draft, although it would be unreasonable to expect a such a large rookie contribution from the fifth-round pick. That said, The Athletic's Zach Rosenblatt wrote after OTAs that Abanikanda "has the explosiveness and home-run ability to make an impact right away, and I think he will."


Garrett Wilson81.11026.67527.50.18189.04
Allen Lazard61.3779.25.72.615.60.1144.93
Mecole Hardman40.6555.63.96.944.90.21105.01
Corey Davis27.1327.72.400060.72
Randall Cobb17.3195.
Alex Erickson2.328.20.20005.17

Garrett Wilson: Despite poor quarterback play, Wilson was outstanding in 2022 as he finished with 83 receptions for 1,103 yards and four touchdowns and was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. More efficient quarterback play should help Wilson in his second season.

Allen Lazard: Lazard posted career highs in targets (100), receptions (60) and yards (788) last season. Although Lazard edged his Packers teammate Christian Watson in fantasy points scored last season, both of whom finished as top-36 performers, Watson outscored him on a per-game basis. While he benefits from continuing to catch passes from Aaron Rodgers, there's a clear talent gap between Garrett Wilson and Lazard.

Mecole Hardman: Hardman has the potential to have an occasional big week, but he'll be hard to trust as the team's third receiver behind Wilson and Lazard. He's never averaged more than 40.8 yards per game in his four seasons with Patrick Mahomes.


Tyler Conklin38.5427.63.300081.81
C.J. Uzomah17.71911.600037.55
Jeremy Ruckert7.580.30.700015.98
Zack Kuntz2.330.40.30005.99

Tyler Conklin: Conklin followed up his breakout 2021 season (61/593/3, 87 targets) in Minnesota with nearly identical numbers (58/552/3, 87 targets) with the Jets last year. Given that the offense should be better in general in 2023, there's a chance that Conklin performs as a mid-tier TE2 once again.

C.J. Uzomah: After signing a free-agent deal with the Jets, Uzomah finished 2022 with a modest 21/232/2 stat line. Perhaps a new year with a new quarterback and offensive coordinator will be what Uzomah needs for a better season with Gang Green.

Jeremy Ruckert: The Athletic's Zach Rosenblatt called Ruckert "one of the biggest winners of OTAs." Meanwhile, coach Robert Saleh said that the third-round, second-year tight end "looks awesome."
