2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
The selection of Jordan Love in the first round rightly opened some eyes. But flying under the radar was the selection of Dillion in the 2nd round, despite having a 25-year old stud in Aaron Jones already on the roster. As I said earlier in this column, the new regime in Green Bay is looking long term. The selection of Love and Dillion are luxury picks for the future, not assets that will move the needle toward a title in 2020. Another strong season by Jones, who is in the final year of his rookie deal, likely means Green Bay gets priced out of his services long term. Dillion is a bargaining chip they can use or an alternative they can fall back on.

This is a fantasy article, not a front office simulation, so what, if any value does Dillion bring to your team? Well if you are a Jones owner, I think he's definitely a priority handcuff. His elite athleticism and size, (4.5 40-yard dash time) and production at Boston College certainly shows he's got a chance to be a starting caliber player. But the fact he didn't break many big plays, or catch many passes (21 in his B.C. career) means that he's likely slated for a two-down role at the NFL level. If Jones were to miss time, Dillion would immediately have RB2 value, but would be looking at a committee situation with veteran Jamaal Williams. Unless I'm a Jones owner I'm probably not picking Dillion in a non-dynasty league, but if he's still sitting there late in your draft he's worth a roster stash.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jamaal Williams listed as Doubtful for Sunday night
Quad injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 25, 4:04 pm

Green Bay Packers
#Packers list RB Jamaal Williams (thigh) is doubtful. S Will Redmond (concussion) and TE Jace Sternberger (concussion) are out. (Tom Silverstein on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Williams missed practice all week with a quad injury and will likely be on the Inactive list against the Titans. Expect to see AJ Dillon get some run in this game but more than anything, this improves the ceiling for Aaron Jones.

Injury Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel placed on COVID-19 list
Both out for Week 9
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 4, 7:33 pm

San Francisco
#49ers LT Trent Williams and WRs Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel will be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list as close contacts, source says. They’re out for tomorrow vs #Packers. (Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Packers and 49ers game scheduled for Thursday night is going to feature a lot of backup players from both sides. The 49ers are down to Trent Taylor, Richie James and Kevin White at wide receiver. The Packers will be without running backs Jamaal Williams and AJ Dillon.

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.

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 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.
