2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
I'm going to bet that Jones won a bunch of fantasy championships last year, as 1,500 total yards, 19 touchdown seasons will have a tendency to do that. Held back by health and opportunity his first two years in the league, Jones exploded last year, becoming the centerpiece of a 13-3 playoff team. His 16 rushing touchdowns doubled 2018's total, and tied Derrick Henry for the NFL lead. His monster Weeks 5, 8, and 10 likely put fantasy owners in the win column, but were balanced out by his mega duds in Weeks 6, 12, and 13.

So while 2019 was a revelation for the former 5th round pick, what does 2020 bring? Oddly, some question marks. Of all the backs who finished in the top-5 in standard scoring last season, his 285 total touches were by far the fewest, which means he was incredibly efficient and touchdown dependent, which are two areas that are exceedingly difficult to duplicate. So if the efficiency numbers are a good bet to regress, that means in order for Jones to repeat his top-3 finish, he's going to need more touches. Well bad news, the Packers used a 2nd round pick on running back AJ Dillion, and while not suited for a three-down role, is sure to eat into the rushing total pie. With last-year's back-up Jamaal Williams still around, Jones's understudies could be looking at nearly 200 carries between them, and with the Pack's improved passing game, I just don't see a way that Jones tops the 236 carries from last season.

So listen, I'm more than happy to have Jones anchor my running backs as an RB1, but a finish in the 8-12 ranking seems much more realistic.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Aaron Jones active for Week 9
Could be limited after missing two games with calf injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 5, 7:40 pm

Green Bay Packers
Aaron Jones officially active. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: There have been multiple reports suggesting Jones will be limited, so start him at your own risk. However, fantasy owners should keep in mind Jones pushed to play back in Week 7 and Green Bay's medical staff is one of the most conservative in the league when it comes to clearing players, so there is an outside chance he will handle at least 10 touches in a game the Packers should control. With the running back landscape being what it is, he's worth the risk to start in most leagues.


Injury Aaron Jones listed as questionable
Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 4, 4:00 pm

Green Bay Packers
Packers are listing RB Aaron Jones (calf) as questionable for Thursday night’s game vs. 49ers. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jones was ruled out on Friday last week but it appears he will be a gametime decision Thursday night against the 49ers. With Jamaal Williams and AJ Dillon out, Green Bay could be relying on Dexter Williams and Tyler Ervin in Week 9.


Injury Jamaal Williams out for Thursday night
Green Bay could use Tyler Ervin and Dexter Williams at RB
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 3, 11:09 am

Green Bay Packers
No new positives for the #Packers from Monday's COVID-19 testing, per source. So as of now, three players won't play Thursday night against the #49ers: RB A.J. Dillon (positive), RB Jamaal Williams (high risk close-contact) and LB Kamal Martin (high-risk close contact). (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Green Bay has not yet decided if Aaron Jones (calf) will be able to play. If he sits, we could see Tyler Ervin and Dexter Williams (practice squad) as the two main running backs used against the 49ers on Thursday night.


Jamaal Williams at risk to miss Week 9
Close contact of AJ Dillon
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 2, 8:10 pm

Green Bay Packers
RB Jamaal Williams is one of the players considered close contacts for RB AJ Dillon, who tested positive for COVID-19, source said. Both did not practice today and the league is determining if they are high-risk close contacts. (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: If Williams is determined to be a high-risk close contact of Dillon, he would be ineligible to play in Thursday's Week 9 game versus the 49ers. With Aaron Jones (calf) not having practiced for over a week, Williams in question and Dillon already ineligible, Green Bay could be forced to go with some combination of Dexter Williams and Tyler Ervin. If that's what it comes to for Green Bay, Ervin may be worthy of a flex start, but only in deeper leagues.


Injury Packers place AJ Dillion on COVID-19 list
Game day test turns up positive
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 2, 11:24 am

Green Bay Packers
#Packers RB AJ Dillon is the player who tested positive for COVID-19, per source. Contact tracing is underway. Depending on close contacts, especially within the small RB room, potential competitive implications on Thursday night's game against the #49ers. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Given the Packers play Thursday night against the 49ers it's likely Dillon will miss this week's game. Aaron Jones has missed the last two weeks with a calf injury and didn't practice at all last week. We will get further updates on the COVID-19 impact on the running back room over the next 48 hours.


Injury Aaron Jones out for Week 8
Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 30, 2:45 pm

Green Bay Packers
#Packers RB Aaron Jones will miss his second straight game. Not a surprise with Jones unable to practice this week because of his calf strain. Add in a short-week, West Coast trip to SF next Thursday, and the decision seemed fairly easy. (Ryan Wood on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's another week of Jamaal Williams who handled the bulk of work for Green Bay last week on his way to a 19-77-1; 4-37 line. Williams is a high-end RB2, low-end RB in a matchup with the Vikings.


Injury Aaron Jones to miss another game?
Packers RB misses third straight practice
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 29, 11:50 pm

Green Bay Packers
Sounds like it might be another week for RB Aaron Jones (calf). Coach Matt LaFleur said holding him out last week "definitely helped him but he's got to continue to improve and get better each day." LaFleur said they won't risk losing him long term so "we'll be smart with him." (ESPN - Rob Demovsky)

FFToday's Take: Even though Jones believed he was healthy enough to play last weekend, the Packers held him out. Two missed practices to begin this week suggests another missed game could be on the horizon. As fantasy owners saw with Davante Adams earlier this year, Green Bay's training staff is among the most conservative in the league when it comes to injuries. Jamaal Williams would be a solid RB2 with RB1 upside if Jones gets ruled out.


Injury Aaron Jones not expected to play
Jamaal Williams and AJ Dillon will have increased roles
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 24, 6:15 pm

Green Bay Packers
Aaron Jones said he was confident he could play through calf strain in Houston, but #Packers aren’t expected to push him. The plan is for Jones to not play v Texans, per sources. Jamaal Williams and AJ Dillon will have increased roles, and Dexter Williams was called up for depth. (Ryan Wood on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jones' calf injury seems to be minor but the Packers are famous for erroring on the side of caution with these kind of injuries. Williams is shaping up as a mid-range RB2 play with Dillon being a Flex consideration against the Texans only because we don't know for sure how much Dillon will be involved.


Injury Aaron Jones a gametime decision with calf strain
Injury suffered in practice Thursday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 23, 12:17 pm

Green Bay Packers
#Packers RB Aaron Jones suffered a very mild calf strain in practice Thursday, per source. Jones wants to play Sunday against the #Texans but sounds like it'll be a game-time decision. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Aaron Jones owners need to have Plan B in place. Jamaal Williams would slide into RB2 territory with rookie AJ Dillon filling a backup role if Aaron doesn't play. Jones missed practice on Friday.
