|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.
|Packers in on Matt LaFleur as head coach|
Tennessee OC makes the jump to HC in Green Bay

|The Green Bay Packers are expected to hire Matt LaFleur as their next head coach, sources told ESPN.
LaFleur spent last season as the Tennessee Titans' offensive coordinator and previously worked under Sean McVay for the Los Angeles Rams and Kyle Shanahan with the Atlanta Falcons. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The trend of hiring young offensive-minded coaches continues. The Titans certainty didn't perform well offensively in 2018 but it's safe to assume LaFleur has a better shot at producing a high-octane offense with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback. This move is boost for Rodgers and hopefully Aaron Jones.

Packers receive a 2020 seventh-round draft pick

|Source: The #Ravens are trading for #Packers RB Ty Montgomery. The RB help they’re looking for. The Packers will receive a 2020 seventh-round draft pick in return, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

FFToday's Take: Ty Montgomery fumbled late in the fourth quarter on a kickoff return last week and now finds himself on the Ravens. This move gives some boost to Aaron Jones who will now share time with only Jamaal Williams.
