Depth Chart
As I've dug deeper into this Packers backfield the more I realize that it really was an overall effective unit. Sure, it wasn't good enough to carry the Packers after losing Rodgers, but the trio of Montgomery-Williams-Jones combined for 1734 total yards and 14 touchdowns. The main problem with those numbers is they are spread over three players, and when healthy, I don' t know that any one of them will be the main man. Jones was easily the most dynamic, if one dimensional (he only tallied 22 yards on 9 receptions). The former Texas-El Paso star didn't see the field until Week 4, but flashed from Weeks 5-7, showing a penchant for big plays. His lack of polish as a receiver and pass blocker and a knee injury in Week 10 basically made his second half of the season a washout. I really think this Packer running game has a chance to be very strong, and although Jones is the back with the biggest upside, he's got to prove to be more than a big play in a bottle. Until he improves his fundamentals (and don't forget an October arrest that might draw a response from the league), Jones is best viewed as a late-round flyer with upside.

News From The Past 90 Days
Aaron Jones to have "secondary role" on Sunday
Green Bay RB returns from suspension
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 19, 12:15 pm

Green Bay Packers
McCarthy on #Packers backfield with Aaron Jones returning: "Jamaal and Ty have played good football. I know what Aaron gives us, but his role will be secondary. Jamaal and Ty will be in the first slot." (Ryan Wood on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jones returns from suspension this week, but it sounds like Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery will keep their places on the depth chart. Jones remains a hold in fantasy leagues and can't be trusted in Week 3.

Injury Montgomery's foot injury: nothing serious
Packer's RB leaves third pre-season game early
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Aug 25, 7:00 am

Green Bay Packers
Last night, #Packers RB Ty Montgomery left early with a foot injury. But post-game, coach Mike McCarthy said, “I'm told it's nothing of a serious nature." (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Montgomery left the Packers third pre-season game with an apparent foot injury and never. He'll likely be held out the final pre-season game in preparation for Week 1 where he'll share snaps with Jamaal Williams. Aaron Jones will serve a two-game suspension to start the season.

Injury Aaron Jones misses practice with hamstring issue
No timeline for return
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jul 30, 11:00 am

Green Bay Packers
Coach Mike McCarthy doesn’t have a timeline for when Aaron Jones will return from what the team is only classifying as "hamstring tightness," but he said the second-year running back wouldn't practice Monday. Jones missed Saturday’s practice - the first day in pads during camp - with a hamstring injury. (Green Bay Press Gazette)

FFToday's Take: The hamstring injury may or may not be a significant injury but Jones is missing valuable practice early in camp. Jones is scheduled to miss the first two games of the season due to suspension. Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery figure to get the bulk of work in those early games.

RB Aaron Jones gets 2-game suspension
Violation of the substance abuse policy
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 3, 3:00 pm

Green Bay Packers
Suspensions galore today. Two games for Packers RB Aaron Jones, league announces. Violation of the substance abuse policy. (Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jones was arrested last November on a traffic violation in which he admitted to smoking marijuana. His suspension will give Ty Montgomery and Jamaal Williams a chance to solidify their spot in the Packers' running back by committee approach. Jones' eighth round ADP will certainly take a hit.

Aaron Jones bulked up during offseason
Seeking improved durability, better anchor in pass protection
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 2, 4:45 pm

Green Bay Packers
A review of his rookie season revealed Aaron Jones needed to further develop the lower half of his body to stand up to the wear-and-tear of an NFL season and improve his skills in pass protection. “I’m bigger all around,” Jones said. “That’s something that’s going to help me in pass protection and that’s something I want to get better at.” While Jones is thicker in his lower body, neither he nor position coach Ben Sirmans feel the 5-foot-9, 208-pound running back has lost any of the explosiveness that allowed Jones to average 5.5 yards per carry on 81 attempts last season. (

FFToday's Take: Ty Montgomery figures to be involved in some way, shape or form in the passing game, so Jones and Jamaal Williams figure to slug it out for the bulk of the early-down work. If Jones' offseason strategy pays off and allows him to stay healthier as well as serve as a more effective blocker, he will almost certainly be the favorite to lead the team in carries. He seems like a solid value pick in the eighth round of PPR leagues right now.
