We scour the news around the NFL to bring you what matters most to you and your dynasty team: the most current news on players, both superstars and the relative unknowns, and analysis to decipher the respective situations. These are many of the major stories and not meant to be an exhaustive look at all the recent happenings around the league.
Even though he was placed on injured reserve this week after his team was eliminated from the NFL Playoffs, it is good news that Aaron Rodgers will not need another collarbone surgery, according to coach Mike McCarthy. According to the coach, "Aaron's in rest and recovery mode … He has a distinct rehab plan as he moves forward.” With such a tumultuous season, and his age creeping up toward the mid-30s, Rodgers makes a great buy low for dynasty owners this offseason.
It is time to definitively declare that Christian Hackenberg belongs on no fantasy roster, no matter how many quarterbacks start in a given week or teams in the league. The final confirmation came in a NJ.com report last week that Hackenberg is still working with the scout team and not competing with Bryce Petty for starter’s reps in practice. Petty has been awful and if Hackenberg is unable to compete, this speaks volumes. In addition, we expect coach Todd Bowles to remain with the Jets so Hackenberg will need to go to a different team and prove his value. The roster spot is too valuable for these odds. He is doubtful to remain with the team in 2018.
