QB - GB
This Week Outlook
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.
Packers QB Jordan Love (COVID-19) has returned to practice.
This means Love was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list. The second-year QB will return to backup duties for Aaron Rodgers.
Packers QB Jordan Love placed on the team's Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday.
Without Love potentially available, Green Bay would likely elevate QB Kurt Benkert from the practice squad to back up starter Aaron Rodgers for Sunday's Week 14 game vs the Chicago Bears.
Green Bay QB Jordan Love completed 19-of-34 passes for 190 yards along with a touchdown and interception as Packers lose 7-13 to the Chiefs in Week 9.
With QB Aaron Rodgers out of Week 9's game due to testing positive for COVID-19, Love made his debut for the Packers in what was ultimately a very underwhelming performance. The fact that Love couldn't put up more than seven points on one of the worst defenses in the NFL should tell you all you need to know. Week 9 proved two things for Green Bay, first they desperately need Rodgers back if they want to be contenders of any kind and secondly Love probably isn't ready to lead the team quite yet. Look for Love to be dropped across all fantasy leagues once Rodgers returns for the Packers.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love will start against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Jordan Love is set to make his first career start this weekend against the Chiefs with Aaron Rodgers sidelined with COVID. Love is still a little raw but has an exciting skill set. He will look to show it off in the high-profile matchup and will be hoping to have Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Allen Lazard active for what was slated to be an exciting battle against Kansas City. He makes for an interesting 1-QB streaming candidate and is a plug-and-play option for superlex leagues.
