SELL Aaron Jones, RB, Packers
If you drafted our honorable mention Breakout Pick, you’ve profited big so far. A 3rd-rounder in most fantasy drafts, Jones is sitting 3rd among RBs across fantasy scoring systems.
But this might be a good time to cash in your Jones chips as he comes off a 3-score explosion. TDs have been fueling his fantasy production. Jones is tied with Christian McCaffrey for the lead league among RBs with 14 scores. But he ranks just 11th in total touches and 9th in total yards.
His volume has sunk further alongside a healthy Jamaal Williams. Jones has averaged just 11.4 carries and 3.2 catches per game over the past 5 weeks. And note that his targets have been closely tied to Davante Adams’ availability. Jones averaged 6.8 targets in the 4 games Adams missed. In the other 6, he’s averaged just 3.2.
Jones is more likely to produce as a borderline RB1 than a high-end RB1 the rest of the way. Try flipping him for a RB like Leonard Fournette or Josh Jacobs. Or, if you’re deep at RB, you could move Jones for an elite WR.
