Green Bay Packers star rookie wide receiver Jayden Reed (chest), who is listed as questionable to play on Sunday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13, is trending toward playing, according to sources. Reed will do an on-field pre-game workout to make sure, but the Packers are cautiously optimistic about his status right now. Per PFF, Reed ranks first in the NFL with 16.1 yards per catch from the slot in 2023, and his four touchdowns rank second in the league. The 23-year-old is a fine flex option this week now that he's expected to play, especially with options limited due to six teams being on bye. In the last five games, Reed has 13 catches for 164 yards and two touchdowns on 19 targets, adding 62 yards and another TD on five rushing attempts. He's a young player on the rise.

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) is unlikely to return this season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "If the Jets are eliminated from the playoff picture, Rodgers is not expected to play," writes Rapoport. Given that the Jets are 4-7 and Rodgers , who recently returned to practice, wasn't planning to play again until Week 16 at the earliest, there's a very strong chance that the team is eliminated by then. Since there's no reason to rush Rodgers back for meaningless games, it looks like we could see a combination of Tim Boyle, Trevor Siemian, and Zach Wilson at quarterback for the Jets over the final six games. All three of them lack fantasy appeal and could have trouble supporting fantasy-relevant production from players like Garrett Wilson and Breece Hall.

Green Bay Packers tight end Tucker Kraft will face off against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13 on Sunday night. The rookie caught his first career touchdown last week in a win over the Detroit Lions. Unfortunately, he saw just two targets while playing 96% of the snaps with Luke Musgrave (kidney) out. Being on the field for nearly 100% of the snaps is great, but he is not generating a high enough target share to have confidence in streaming him weekly. The Chiefs allow the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends and have given up just two touchdowns to the position all year. With quarterback Jordan Love spreading the ball around to multiple receivers, Kraft is little more than a touchdown-dependent, low-tier streaming option in Week 13.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Romeo Doubs will take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13 on Sunday night. The 23-year-old has not done much through the air the past month but has survived as a flex option due to his nose for the end zone. This week's matchup against the Chiefs is not great. Kansas City allows the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to wide receivers and the fourth-fewest yards. With Doubs already struggling to crack 40 yards on any given week, he would need to find the end zone again in Week 13 to keep fantasy managers happy. Because there are multiple teams on bye, the second-year receiver has flex appeal, but he is a boom-or-bust option due to the matchup.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Christian Watson will take on the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night in Week 13. The second-year receiver has got back on track over the past two weeks, finding the end zone twice and tallying 115 yards on seven receptions. Last week, Watson nearly reached 100 yards and led the team in receiving yards. Quarterback Jordan Love is finally starting to click with the former first-round pick, but the duo will have a tough time against the Kansas City secondary this weekend. The Chiefs allow the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position and the fifth-fewest yards. Watson will need to find the end zone again and try to break off a big run to make fantasy managers happy in Week 13. If the matchup were better, the 24-year-old would be in the WR2 conversation, but against the Chiefs, consider Watson a WR3.
