This Week Outlook
Jets QB Joe Flacco (COVID-19) activated off reserve/COVID-19 list, returns to practice on Monday.
Costello also reports that Jets QB Mike White is still dealing with the virus and remains out. This news gives some clarity surrounding who would back up rookie QB Zach Wilson in Week 13 vs the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Jets placed QBs Joe Flacco and Mike White on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Zach Wilson will start in Week 12 against the Texans. As long as he shows improvement from earlier this season he should hold the starting job for the rest of the year.
Joe Flacco throws for two touchdowns and steadies the Jets' offense in a tough loss.
Flacco completed 24 of his 39 passes on Sunday against the Dolphins. He finished with 291 yards with two touchdowns and zero turnovers. The veteran quarterback played well after coming over via trade from the Eagles. The Jets' offense has struggled in recent weeks, but Flacco provided a steadying hand. Fantasy managers still shouldn't be comfortable using Flacco, even in Superflex leagues. Zach Wilson is likely to return soon.
Rich Cimini of ESPN reports the Jets are planning to start Joe Flacco at quarterback in Week 11 against the Dolphins.
Zach Wilson apparently isn't 100% healthy just yet. Cimini notes that Flacco's experience is playing a factor against a blitz-heavy Miami defense. Michael Carter and Corey Davis are the only trustworthy fantasy options on the Jets this weekend.
Joe Flacco is expected to serve as the Jets backup QB in Week 10 against the Bills.
Mike White is expected to get the start in Week 10, but it will be Joe Flacco, not Josh Johnson that will serve as the primary backup against the Buffalo Bills this week.
