This Week Outlook
Jordan Love played in the fourth quarter in relief of an injured Aaron Rodgers. He completed six of his nine passes for 113 yards including a 63-yard touchdown pass on a catch and run to Christian Watson.
Love looked sharp in relief of Rodgers. With Rodgers dealing with a thumb injury and now a rib injury, and with the Packers likely out of playoff contention, Love could start the rest of the season. He is worth fantasy consideration in deeper leagues and as a streaming option next week against the Bears if Rodgers is ruled out.
Jordan Love played into the fourth quarter in Friday's 20-10 preseason win over the Saints. He completed 12-of-24 passes for 113 yards with one touchdown pass. He added 13 yards on the ground.
It was an improved performance from Love with no interceptions after turning it over three times in the preseason opener. Love won't see the field for the Packers in the regular season as long as Aaron Rodgers stays healthy, but he appears to be making some strides to be a serviceable option if called on.
Jordan Love played the entire first half on Friday night versus the 49ers. He completed 13-for-24 passes for 176 with two touchdowns and three interceptions in the 28-21 loss. Both of his touchdown passes came from 33 yards out, the first to Romeo Doubs on a fourth down play and the second to fellow rookie wideout Danny Davis late in the half.
While his passes weren't always perfect, all three of Love's interceptions went off the hands of his receivers, so his final numbers could have been better. Love should get plenty of playing time in the preseason to continue to gain experience as he will serve as the backup to Aaron Rodgers again this season.
After trading Carson Wentz, the Colts could look to Jordan Love as a potential target to fill their starting QB vacancy.
The Indianapolis Colts will be in the market for a quarterback, after trading 2021 starter Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders. A few names that are likely targets include Jordan Love, Jimmy Garoppolo and Mitchell Trubisky. Jordan Love is the most likely option, as he is still on a rookie contract and can likely be acquired for a bargain, after the Packers signed Aaron Rodgers to a long term deal this week. GM Chris Ballard tried to move up to get Love in the 2020 draft, so there is some familiarity for the front office. The Colts do not have a first-round draft pick this off-season, as their pick belongs to the Eagles, meaning they are unlikely to fill the position through the NFL Draft. The Colts currently have two quarterbacks under contract for the upcoming season: Sam Ehlinger and James Morgan.
Green Bay QB Jordan Love came in at the end of the second quarter and completed 10-of-17 passes for 134 yards the remainder of the game with a touchdown and two interceptions in the Packers Week 18 loss to the Lions.
Love got a chance to get in a few reps in a meaningless Week 18 game after the Packers decided to rest Rodgers late in the second quarter. Even though Love played half the game he still didn't light up a porous Detroit defense and had two interceptions as he once again gave a glimpse of what might await the Packers at the QB position whenever Rodgers leaves.
