Copies is mailed

FOUND ONLINE: An average of 512,000 copies is mailed each month to members of Georgia's Electric co-ops...

That's the first half of a sentence I found. Copies is plural, so are works here.

An average of 512,000 copies are mailed...

ALSO FOUND ONLINE: Aaron Rodgers has long believed in the importance of players' spending extra time in their playbooks, especially guys who are new to the Green Bay Packers’ offensive system.

I'm not sure you need an apostrophe on players.

ALSO FOUND ONLINE: I’m especially excited to read Picard’s thought’s on his old nemesis Q now that he’s done being a captain.

No, there's no reason to put an apostrophe in thoughts.
