Packers QB Aaron Rodgers reported for the start of training camp on Tuesday. It's still unclear if he and the team have officially agreed to whatever deal they're reportedly working on. But it sure looks like he's committed to play in Green Bay for at least 1 more season. We've bumped Rodgers, WR Davante Adams and RB Aaron Jones up the rankings.

Following up on NFL Network's Ian Rapoport's story this morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Packers and QB Aaron Rodgers are "close" to working on a deal that would bring Rodgers back to Green Bay for the 2021 season. Per Schefter, the agreement would void the 2023 year in Rodgers' contract and ensure that the team reviews Rodgers' situation after this year. It essentially sounds like this would be his final season with the Packers. We'll continue to track this situation, but Rodgers and Green Bay's skill-position players look much safer to draft now than they did 12 hours ago.

It was ugly for Packers QB Jordan Love last summer, according to almost all reports, and the team never felt comfortable enough to activate him as the #2 QB on game days. But he's looking better this year -- at least in shorts at OTAs this week. "He’s definitely matured over the course of the year,” HC Matt LaFleur said. “You can tell that he’s put in the time this offseason, not only just lifting and running and coming in in good football shape, but also you can tell he’s put in the time in his craft in trying to continue to work on his mechanics, his fundamentals that are so critical to playing the position at the highest level possible." And from RB Aaron Jones: “You can tell he’s just a lot more comfortable out there, even from communicating in the huddle to the command of the huddle to just everything. He’s had a year under his belt, he’s had time to watch and learn, so you can tell it’s a little bit different from what it was before. He’s going to continue to grow, and I’m happy to be here working with him.” Love will obviously be a downgrade if he's forced to take over for QB Aaron Rodgers this season -- but let's not assume he'll be a complete disaster.

The Packers have agreed to a new 4-year deal with RB Aaron Jones. His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, says it's a $48 million pact, including a $13 million signing bonus. (We'll see about further details.) Reports had continued that Green Bay wanted to keep Jones around, and this likely indicates he wouldn't have found bigger money on the open market. Jones figures to remain the lead back. AJ Dillon will continue to find limited work available in his 2nd season. Dillon could see his role grow, though, with Jamaal Williams heading to free agency. We'll see how the whole backfield settles out.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams (quad) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Titans. Look for Aaron Jones to dominate backfield work.

The forecast for tonight's Titans-Packers game calls for temperatures in the low 30s with snow and winds of 10-15 mph with gusts of 25-30 mph. Those are less-than-ideal conditions for the passing games, but we're still expecting plenty of points in this one. The game still has a big 53.5-point over/under. We'd stick with all the regulars from these teams in fantasy lineups.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams (quad) missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday night's game vs. the Titans. His absence will leave rookie A.J. Dillon as the #2 RB -- but Aaron Jones should dominate backfield work. He set season highs with a 90% snap rate and 20 carries after Williams exited early in last week's game.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams (quad) did not practice on Wednesday. RB Aaron Jones set season highs with a 90% snap rate and 20 carries after Williams exited early in last week's game and would be in for a volume boost if Williams is out vs. Tennessee on Sunday night.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams suffered a quad injury in the 1st half of Saturday night's game vs. the Panthers and didn't return. That propelled RB Aaron Jones to a season-high 90% snap rate and 158 total yards on 23 touches. Jones will get a significant boost if Williams misses next Sunday night's game vs. the Titans.

7:11pm EST 11/5/20

Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) is active for tonight's game against the 49ers. Everything we've heard over the last few hours suggests he'll be limited in this one. That, of course, could change based on how he's playing and feeling. It's also worth noting that this is a tough matchup vs. a 49ers defense that sits 7th in Football Outsiders' run defense rankings and 3rd in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs. The strength of your other options should determine whether you want to roll the dice on Jones tonight. We'd avoid RBs Tyler Ervin and Dexter Williams with Jones active.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the Packers are "hopeful" RB Aaron Jones (calf) will be active for tonight's game against the 49ers. A final decision won't be made until warmups, though. And Rapoport adds that Jones "may end up being a limited role." It sounds like the absences of RBs Jamaal Williams and A.J. Dillon might be pushing Green Bay to get Jones back out there. We'll see if he's up when inactives come out around 7 pm ET and if we hear anything about his expected role. As of now, we'd consider Jones a risky Week 9 fantasy play.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) was listed as a limited practice participant all week and is officially questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the 49ers. It's possible Green Bay pushes him back out there with RBs Jamaal Williams and A.J. Dillon out for this one. If Jones sits out, it'll be Tyler Ervin and Dexter Williams in the Packers' backfield. We'll get the inactives around 6 pm ET tomorrow.

The 49ers on Wednesday received a positive COVID test and immediately closed team facilities. That's particularly noteworthy because it comes a day before San Francisco is scheduled to host the Packers on Thursday night football. We'll see whether this situation alters the timing of the game. If the NFL pushes the game to later in the weekend or Monday night, then Packers RB Jamaal Williams might have time to return from isolation. If the game remains on Thursday night, Williams will miss it because of close contact with RB AJ Dillon, who tested positive for COVID at the beginning of the week. More time also might help Aaron Jones move beyond his calf strain to play after missing the past 2 games. Stay tuned.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that there's "pessimism" about Packers RB Aaron Jones' availability for Thursday night's game against the 49ers. The team continues to be cautious bringing him back from that calf injury. With RBs Jamaal Williams and A.J. Dillon both out, it looks like Green Bay will be rolling with RBs Dexter Williams and Tyler Ervin, who have combined for 15 NFL carries. ESPN's Rob Demovsky tweeted today that Williams "has given them no reason to trust him" and that the Packers could "use a short pass game w/ Ervin to act as runs."

Packers RB Jamaal Williams will miss Thursday night's game against the 49ers because of his "high-risk close contact" status with RB AJ Dillon. We'll see whether RB Aaron Jones is ready to return after missing the past 2 contests. Green Bay estimated him as a limited practice participant Monday (but didn't have an actual workout). If Jones can't play, then Tyler Ervin and Dexter Williams would lead the backfield. Each is worth consideration on waivers this week at low investment. It wouldn't be a great matchup for either reserve back, though.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) is out for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. He remained sidelined in practice all week, so consider him iffy for a Week 9 return. RB Jamaal Williams gets another game as Green Bay’s lead back on Sunday. He played 89% of the offensive snaps and racked up 19 carries with 5 targets last week.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) remained sidelined on Thursday. It's looking like he'll miss this weekend's game vs. the Vikings, giving Jamaal Williams another game as Green Bay's lead back.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He was seemingly close to playing against the Texans this past weekend, but this obviously isn't a great start for his chances of returning for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Check back tomorrow for another update.

11:10am EDT 10/25/20

Packers RB Aaron Jones is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. He suffered a mild calf strain on Thursday and reportedly wanted to play today. But the always-cautious Packers medical staff is holding him out. We’ll see if Jones can make it back for Week 8. Jamaal Williams figures to lead the Green Bay backfield today and is a strong fantasy play. Rookie A.J. Dillon should also take on an expanded role in the running game and is a RB3 or flex option in non-PPR leagues.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) remains a game-time decision for today's tilt with the Texans, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Jones made the trip to Houston and is pushing to play. But "if Jones isn't 100%, he won't go," Pelissero adds. We're still betting on Jones being inactive but will find out for sure around 11:30 am ET.
