Player Outlook
Love finally got his opportunity to start for the Packers in 2021 when Aaron Rodgers was out on the COVID list and he struggled against a blitz-heavy defensive game plan. Love's dual threat skill set makes him an intriguing flyer in Dynasty leagues, but unless an injury leads to more playing time, he's best left off your rosters in redraft formats.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Mixed bag in preseason opener

    Love completed 13 of 24 passes for 176 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions and added 24 yards on four rushes in the Packers' 28-21 preseason loss to the 49ers on Friday night. With Aaron Rodgers sitting out, it was Love who started the game and played the entirety of the first half. The 2020 first-round pick's night got off to an encouraging start when he connected with Romeo Doubs for a nifty 33-yard touchdown pass down the right sideline to answer an early 49ers field goal. However, Love then short-circuited each of the Packers' next three possessions with interceptions, all which came in San Francisco territory. Love did finish the night on a positive note when he helmed a nine-play, 75-yard march just before halftime that culminated in another 33-yard scoring toss, this time in conjunction with Danny Davis. Love could see another solid allotment of playing time in next Friday night's home exhibition battle against the Saints, even if Rodgers makes a brief appearance to start the game.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Starting preseason opener

    Coach Matt LaFleur said Love will start Friday's preseason contest against the 49ers, Rob Demovsky of reports. LaFleur also relayed that Aaron Rodgers will sit out at least Green Bay's first two preseason contests, but that a decision hasn't yet been made about the Aug. 25 game against the Chiefs, per Matt Schneidman of The Athletic. It remains to be seen how many drives the 2020 first-round pick actually will lead Friday, but whatever snaps Love does take will help prepare him for handling backup duties this season. If the 49ers opt to start second-year quarterback Trey Lance, Friday's contest could prove to be one of the more intriguing matchups on the preseason slate.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Set for backup duties again

    Love's tentative path to the starting role with Green Bay in 2022 vanished Tuesday, after incumbent Aaron Rodgers agreed to terms on a four-year, $200 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The 2020 first-round pick's prospects for his third year in Green Bay hinged entirely on Rodgers' decision, and with the back-to-back MVP now sticking around for the foreseeable future, Love's best-case scenario with the team that drafted him appears to be backup duties. On the other hand, the Packers still have significant salary cap issues to address, and Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Love could now be a legitimate trade chip. Being dealt to a quarterback-needy team such as the Broncos or Panthers would certainly be the best outcome for the 23-year-old's fantasy prospects. That said, it remains to be seen whether front offices around the league are willing to exchange significant capital for the talented but unproven Love.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Six appearances in second season

    Love appeared in six games during the 2021 season and completed 36 of 62 passes for 411 yards. He registered two touchdowns and three interceptions and also ran 12 times for 27 yards. Of Love's six appearances, two were simply to kneel out the clock, and two others were brief cameos late in games when the outcome already had been determined. He did play one full game against the Chiefs in Week 9 and played the second half of the Packers' Week 18 loss to the Lions, and he was unspectacular in those contests, completing just 56.9 percent of his passes and averaging 6.4 YPA. After seeing no snaps in his 2020 rookie campaign, the 2021 season essentially was Love's first as a pro. His prospects for 2022 will hinge significantly on whether or not fellow quarterback Aaron Rodgers remains with Green Bay. If Rodgers returns, Love is looking at another season in the backup role. If Rodgers does not, though, Love will be the favorite to take over as the Packers' starting quarterback.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Struggles in extended appearance

    Love completed 10 of 17 pass attempts for 134 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against Detroit on Sunday. Love played off the bench and mostly with backups after Aaron Rodgers played with most of the starters. Love saw a lot of pressure and arguably was at minimal fault for one of his interceptions, which was tipped at the line and then again by his wide receiver before the defense snagged it, but his box score also benefited from a lot of yards after the catch on a 62-yard touchdown pass to tight end Josiah Deguara. It's disappointing that Love didn't produce any better, even if he was playing with Green Bay's backups, and he needs to get better at identifying pressure pre-snap so that he isn't so constantly caught by surprise after the snap. Love won't turn 24 until November and still has time to develop, but it's safe to say that the Packers wish he was farther along in that development than he appears to be at the moment.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Back on active roster

    The Packers activated Love (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports. Love tested positive for the virus on Dec. 6, and even though he was vaccinated, he wasn't able to rid himself of symptoms and test negative twice 24 hours apart until more than a week later. He thus yielded backup quarterback duties to Kurt Benkert this past Sunday against the Bears, but the latter reverted to the practice squad Monday, signaling Love's impending return to the active roster. Love will reclaim No. 2 duties behind Aaron Rodgers for the Packers' Week 15 game in Baltimore, and with Rodgers tending to a toe injury, the former will handle the majority of the reps with the first-team offense this week.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Lands on COVID-19 list

    The Packers placed Love on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday. According to Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Love previously disclosed to reporters that he's vaccinated, which means his placement on the list is the result of a breakthrough positive test. Love will be eligible to rejoin the Packers as soon as he's showing diminished symptoms of the virus and tests negative on two occasions at least 24 hours apart, giving him a chance to make it back as the backup to Aaron Rodgers for Sunday's game against the Bears. With Rodgers nursing a toe injury that will likely result in him sitting out portions of practice this week, practice squad quarterback Kurt Benkert could take most of the first-team reps over the next few days.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Returning to No. 2 role

    Love is set to resume backup duties for the Packers in Sunday's game against the Seahawks after the team reinstated starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, the Associated Press reports. After Rodgers' surprise placement on the list last week, Love picked up his first NFL start and generally struggled to move the chains in the Packers' 13-7 loss to the Chiefs, finishing with 19 completions on 34 attempts for 190 yards, a touchdown and an interception while adding 23 yards on the ground. Though Love continued to take all the first-team reps in practice this week while Rodgers remained isolated from the team, the reigning MVP took part in virtual meetings and performed conditioning drills on his own to stay prepared to start. Even if Love had fared better in his first extensive NFL action last week, he was always unlikely to pick up another start so long as Rodgers was activated when first eligible.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: First NFL start on tap

    Love will make his first NFL start Sunday against the Chiefs with Aaron Rodgers (illness) ineligible to play Week 9 after testing positive for COVID-19, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. After the Packers were forced to get by without All-Pro wideout Davante Adams in the Week 8 win over the Cardinals following his own positive COVID-19 test, Green Bay will face an even greater challenge Week 9 sans the reigning NFL MVP. Love, the Packers' 2020 first-round pick, has yet to see any extended regular-season action during his career, with his lone two appearances coming in garbage time of a Week 1 blowout loss to the Saints and for a trio of kneeldowns in a Week 2 win over the Lions. Expect head coach Matt LaFleur to simplify the play calls for Love against Kansas City, with the Packers potentially adopting a run-heavy approach so long as the team isn't trailing by a significant margin. According to Ian Rapoport and Mike Garofolo of NFL Network, Rodgers is unvaccinated, so he'll require a longer period of time to clear the necessary health and safety protocols than a vaccinated player and won't be a lock to return to action Week 10 against the Seahawks.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Remains day-to-day

    Love (shoulder) has not been cleared to return to the field yet, but he may be able to play in the Packers' final preseason game at Buffalo, Rob Demovsky of reports. Love was held out of Saturday's contest against the Jets with the injury, but it sounds as if he's nearing a return. Coach Matt LaFleur confirmed that when Love is cleared from the injury, he'll be the team's backup quarterback. Love played fairly well in the team's first preseason contest -- he completed 12 of 17 pass attempts for 122 yards and a touchdown -- and it would benefit him to get more reps in game action before the regular season begins.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Out Saturday

    Love (shoulder) will not play Saturday against the Jets, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. This shouldn't be surprising considering coach Matt LaFleur more or less confirmed the 2020 first-round pick would not be active for the preseason contest. With Aaron Rodgers also getting a veteran's night off, Kurt Benkert and Jake Dolegala are the only two active quarterbacks for the Packers on Saturday, with the former expected to take the majority of the work.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Not expected to play Saturday

    Coach Matt LaFleur said it is "probably unlikely" that Love (shoulder) will suit up for Saturday's preseason contest against the Jets, Rob Demovsky of reports. Love turned in a solid performance during his preseason debut against the Texans last weekend, but he sustained a minor shoulder injury in the process, and the Packers aren't taking any risks in his recovery process. Kurt Benkert will be in line to start Saturday's exhibition matchup if Love indeed remains sidelined, while Jacob Dolegala, who only re-signed with Green Bay on Tuesday, would operate as his backup and potential relief option. Per Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Love is not practicing Thursday.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Throwing, but unlikely to practice

    Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said that Love (shoulder) is unlikely to practice Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of reports. LaFleur also said that Love resumed throwing in at least some capacity Tuesday, and that his shoulder will be tested again Wednesday, but he declined to offer any updates about the second-year quarterback's status for Saturday's preseason game against the Jets. The Packers will "give [Love] every opportunity," per LaFleur, but "don't want to put him in a situation to make it worse." Love injured his shoulder during last weekend's exhibition matchup against the Texans, and though a follow-up MRI came back clean, Green Bay clearly intends to approach his recovery with caution. Kurt Benkert and Jacob Dolegala will continue to see increased reps as long as Love is sidelined.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Set to miss some time

    Coach Matt LaFleur said Love (shoulder) may miss practice this week and could even sit out Saturday's preseason game against the Jets, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. There was an expectation Love would play three quarters of the Packers' exhibition opener versus the Texans on Saturday, but after he was strip sacked late in the first half, LaFleur opted to keep the second-year quarterback on the sideline after halftime. An MRI on Love's right shoulder Sunday came back clean, but LaFleur clearly doesn't want to press the issue in the coming days. Previously, the coach relayed starter Aaron Rodgers was unlikely to suit up in the preseason, and if Love is forced to sit out Saturday, LaFleur may have to adjust his plans with just one other quarterback (Kurt Benkert) on the roster.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: 'Dings' shoulder in debut

    Head coach Matt LaFleur, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, said after Saturday's preseason opener that Love was removed from the contest early after getting "dinged" on a strip sack near the end of the first half. Love, according to Rob Demovsky of, said his throwing shoulder was hit and it feels "a little strain-ish" but he's "feeling good now." LaFleur was planning to let Love play three quarters in Saturday's contest, but the injury brought an early end to his night, as he did not take the field after halftime. Love held his own while he was on it, though, and although the bulk of his production came on one drive, he did finish his first appearance as a pro 12-of-17 for 122 yards and a touchdown. He figures to see plenty of preseason action with starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers unlikely to suit up, but the injury leaves his status uncertain for the time being. According to LaFleur, another update on Love's status will be provided Sunday.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Lifted from COVID list

    The Packers activated Love from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday. Love was placed on the COVID-19 list last Friday, but he's available for team activities immediately after clearing the necessary hurdles. The rookie first-round pick hasn't suited up in a game this season, as Tim Boyle has been the backup for Aaron Rodgers.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Placed on COVID-19 list

    The Packers placed Love on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Love was placed on the COVID-19 list alongside Krys Barnes, who tested positive Friday. The rookie first-round pick may either have tested positive himself, or he could be required to quarantine after coming into close contact with someone who has. In any case, Love has been a healthy scratch for the Packers all season, while Tim Boyle has served as the backup to Aaron Rodgers.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Sits out Week 4

    Love (coach's decision) is inactive for the Packers' Week 4 matchup against Atlanta. Love battled an illness in the middle of the week, but he was able to practice fully Saturday and enter Monday without an injury designation. Nevertheless, he'll remain inactive, which was also his status for the first three games this season. Tim Boyle will serve as the backup quarterback.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Opens as third-string QB

    Love is listed as the third-string quarterback on the unofficial depth chart released by the Packers on Monday night. The Packers surely would have loved -- no pun intended -- their rookie QB to secure the backup spot behind Aaron Rodgers, but Tim Boyle simply played better during training camp, so he will open the season as the team's No. 2 quarterback. Love was drafted with an eye on the future, and team brass is no doubt still banking on him showing enough improvement in the coming months and years to become a starting quarterback down the road.

  • Packers' Jordan Love: Green Bay goes QB in first round

    The Packers selected Love in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 26th overall. Green Bay traded up from 30 to take a player who's ostensibly the long-term replacement for Aaron Rodgers, evidently unconcerned that the team's short-term political stability might be harmed in the process. To make this pick is to undermine Rodgers and the immediate competitiveness of the Packers, and no lip service can get around that fact. If Matt LaFleur can turn Love's raw skills into polished production, then the alienation this pick brings might be redeemed in hindsight. For now, though, Love arrives from Utah State with substantial turnover concerns despite his plus physical tools at 6-foot-4, 224 pounds.
