|After being totally invisible for the first 9 weeks of the season, Williams turned it on after injuries to Montgomery and Jones. While the yardage numbers don't jump off the page and the average was well under 4 yards per carry, Williams proved to be a chain mover and a guy who had a nose for the endzone, as he tallied 6 total scores over the final 9 weeks of the season. He more than held his own in the passing game, picking up 25 receptions for 262 yards. Considering how long it took him to earn meaningful snaps his 800+ total yards is fairly impressive. The biggest problem I have with Williams is he lacks the speed and elusiveness to generate yardage on his own, and that was evident last year when the Packer passing game imploded without A-Rod. Williams should have many more running lanes with his QB back under center, and is the Packers running back with the best overall skill-set. With all three guys healthy I think Williams settles in as the most consistent fantasy prospect, especially in standard leagues where he has a chance at low-end RB2 value.

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.

Aaron Jones unlikely to see much increase in role

|Mike McCarthy on Aaron Jones: Way the game goes and strength of the players on the football. He's dynamic with the ball in his hands. But there's more to the position than just running the football. We have diversity in our attack with three guys. All have excellent attributes. (Tom Silverstein on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: As smitten as the fantasy community is with Jones, this should not be a surprise. Most believe Jamaal Williams is a bit of a coach's pet, but he's really not the problem. McCarthy's biggest mistake at the moment is believing he can find roles for three backs (Jones, Williams or Ty Montgomery) when he's not committing to getting the ball in their hands. Jones should not be considered anything more than a high-upside flex until further notice.
|Aaron Jones to have "secondary role" on Sunday|
Green Bay RB returns from suspension

|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.
