Aaron Rodgers Doing Everything At OTAs

Tuesday, May 21, 2:00 PM

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said that quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) is doing everything at organized team activities this week and has no restrictions. This was the expectation all along after Rodgers was practicing with the team late last season despite tearing his Achilles in Week 1 of 2023, but it's nice to see him back out there running around during offseason practices. The 40-year-old future Hall of Famer didn't play at all last year due to his Achilles injury, and fantasy managers shouldn't forget that he had his worst season as a professional in his final year in Green Bay in 2022. Still, if Rodgers can stay healthy this year, he should at least be a QB1 streamer in the right matchups in fantasy leagues with all the weapons he has around him in New York. We'll continue to monitor Rodgers' recovery this offseason, especially once the team gets into full contact.

Baker Mayfield To Remain In Tampa Bay

Sunday, March 10, 5:33 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Baker Mayfield has reached a three-year extension with the organization. The former No. 1 overall pick has agreed to a three-year, $100 million extension. The deal reportedly includes $50 million in guaranteed money and Mayfield can earn up to $115 million over the next three seasons. This is a well-earned extension for Mayfield who did fantastic in his first year with Tampa Bay. Mayfield threw for over 4,000 yards with 28 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while leading the team to a postseason victory. The Bucs have already brought back Mike Evans and now Mayfield as they look to defend their division title.
