RB Aaron Jones, like the entire Packers offense, struggled to get going in Thursday night's loss to the Lions. Green Bay finished with only 53 plays and 10 RB carries, as they played from multiple scores behind for the final three quarters. Jones garnered five of those carries but could only grind out 18 yards. He was crunched for a four-yard loss on his only reception of the night. Jones wound up getting out-snapped 38 to 20 by backfield mate A.J. Dillon, but that was very likely due to Jones coming back from that hamstring injury and the scoreboard. The good news is that Jones seemingly avoided a setback. Expect him to be back in the lead role in a plus Week 5 matchup vs. the Raiders. It's a good bounce-back opportunity for Jones and the Packers.

Check our Week 4 RB rankings for any updates before setting your lineup.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Saints. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, so a Week 4 return seems likely. A.J. Dillon will again serve as Green Bay’s lead back today after handling 15 carries and one target last week.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Saints. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon posted 55 rushing yards on 15 carries in Week 2’s loss vs. the Falcons. He also added a single catch on his lone target for 8 yards. Green Bay was without starter Aaron Jones (hamstring) for this contest. Though Dillon didn’t have a massive scoring output, he seized 76.1% of the Packers’ RB touch opportunities on Sunday. Should Jones miss another game, fantasy managers can feel comfortable knowing that Dillon would likely be treated as a workhorse back again. Keep an eye on injury reports in the coming days to see if we’ll have Jones back for Week 3 vs. the Saints.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Falcons. We’ll see if he can make it back for Week 3. A.J. Dillon steps in as Green Bay’s lead back today, with RB Patrick Taylor behind him. Green Bay will also be without LT David Bakhtiari today.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) is not expected to play vs. the Falcons today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That's not a surprise after Jones missed practice all week. His absence will leave A.J. Dillon as Green Bay's lead back -- and a volume-based RB2 in fantasy lineups.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) did not practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Falcons. The veteran could probably play despite not practicing, but he should be on fantasy benches for now. We'll look for further updates on Jones and will get Green Bay's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. If Jones is inactive, A.J. Dillon will be a volume-based RB2 play.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) missed his second straight practice on Thursday. He's now looking unlikely to play vs. the Falcons this weekend, which would leave RB A.J. Dillon as Green Bay's likely workhorse. We just removed Jones and bumped Dillon way up the Week 2 RB Rankings.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He downplayed the injury after the Week 1 win, but he's certainly not a lock to play vs. the Falcons this Sunday. Jones' absence would turn A.J. Dillon into Green Bay's feature back. Check back tomorrow for another update on Jones.

Packers RB Aaron Jones didn't sound concerned about the hamstring injury that knocked him out of Sunday's win over the Bears. Jones told reporters afterward that he felt his hamstring "bite" at the end of his TD catch but that it's nowhere near as bad as previous hamstring pulls he's dealt with, per insider Ryan Wood. Jones added that he could have returned if the game was still in doubt. It sounds like he has a good chance to play vs. the Falcons next Sunday, but we'll keep a close eye on Jones' status throughout the coming week.

Packers RB Aaron Jones had himself a Sunday, logging 126 total yards on 10 touches vs. the Bears. The veteran recorded 41 rushing yards on 9 carries with 1 TD. The bulk of his damage came through the air, however. Jones finished Week 1’s victory with 2 catches for 86 yards, including a 51-yard TD off a screen pass in the third quarter. Teammate A.J. Dillon fared much worse, tallying a poor 19 yards on 13 carries. It’s unreasonable to expect Jones to be that efficient on his touches moving forward. Even so, he performed considerably better than Dillon on fewer touches and will look to continue these efforts next Sunday against a Falcons defense that surrendered 167 total yards to Panthers’ RBs in Week 1.

Packers RB Aaron Jones injured his hamstring at the end of a 35-yard receiving score in the third quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Bears. He's officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and ESPN's Adam Schefter report that Packers WR Romeo Doubs (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Bears today. But he'll be limited. Rapoport tweets that Doubs "likely won't have a full complement of snaps." He's not a recommended Week 1 fantasy starter. Expect a run-heavy attack from the Packers, with RB Aaron Jones, WR Jayden Reed, and TE Luke Musgrave the best bets for targets.

Packers WR Romeo Doubs (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bears. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Even if Doubs ends up active on Sunday, he’ll be at risk of reduced snaps and reinjury. We’d try not to use him in Week 1 fantasy lineups. With WR Christian Watson (hamstring) out, WR Jayden Reed and TE Luke Musgrave should see increased target shares. But we’re expecting a run-heavy attack from Green Bay, featuring RBs Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon.
