Packers RB Aaron Jones led the team in carries (17) and rushing yards (90) in Sunday's win over the Rams. The veteran also added 4 receptions on 5 targets for 36 yards and 1 TD in the receiving game. Teammate A.J. Dillon played a similarly impactful role in the victory, tallying 36 yards and 2 TDs on the ground on top of 3 receptions of his own for 35 yards. Much of the Packers' offense ran through the backfield in Week 15, and fantasy managers looking ahead to a neutral matchup against the Dolphins next week should hope for the same in Week 16. Consider Jones a strong RB1 and Dillon a viable flex-worthy option.

Packers RB Aaron Jones was limited in Thursday's practice. He's on the injury report with an ankle; it was reportedly a shin injury that limited him in Green Bay's last game prior to the Week 14 bye.

We'll get Green Bay's first official practice report of the week on Thursday.

Packers RB AJ Dillon ran for 93 yards and a TD on 18 carries in Sunday's win over the Bears, doubling RB Aaron Jones' rushing attempts. Dillon added 3 catches for 26 yards on 3 targets.

He gets the Rams, Dolphins and Vikings after a Week 14 bye. Jones managed just 9-26 on the ground Sunday, with 5 catches for 24 yards on 5 targets.

AJ Dillon gained an efficient 65 yards on 13 carries (5.0 per rush) but didn't get a target and played just more than half as many snaps as Jones (24 vs. 45). Next comes a Thursday night date with Tennessee, which entered Week 10 as the league's top run defense by Football Outsiders DVOA.

X-rays on Packers RB Aaron Jones' left ankle came back clean, he told reporters after the loss to Detroit. "A little sore," Jones said. "I was fine. They sent me for X-rays. X-rays were fine, but they decided to hold me [out]. It was frustrating because I felt like I could have went, but they were being smart. I definitely respect them, because after I stopped moving around and I sat still for a while, it got kind of sore." It sounds like Jones avoided a serious injury, but we should learn more tomorrow.

Packers RB Aaron Jones' left foot was in a walking boot after Sunday's loss to the Lions. He suffered an ankle injury in the 3rd quarter of that one and didn't return. We should learn more about the injury on Monday. Jones' absence would leave A.J. Dillon as Green Bay's feature back.

Packers RB Aaron Jones delivered 143 yards on 20 carries in Sunday night's loss to the Bills. Green Bay stuck to a surprisingly run-heavy approach despite falling 17 points behind by the 4th quarter. It was less hard to understand giving the ball to Jones, who averaged 7.2 yards per rush. He added 14 yards on 4 catches (5 targets). A.J. Dillon also produced 54 yards on 10 carries, though half of that came via a single 27-yard run. Jones again worked clearly ahead of Dillon, the 3rd such game among Green Bay's past 4. Buffalo entered the game as the league's #1 run defense by Football Outsiders DVOA.

The Packers ran the ball just 12 times in losing at Washington on Sunday. RB AJ Dillon logged only 4 carries for 15 yards as his playing time sank for the 2nd time in 3 games.

He tallied 53 yards receiving and caught the team's only 2 offensive TDs. Dillon's recent decline in exposure and overall decline in effectiveness can only help Jones' fantasy outlook. A struggling WR corps should continue sending targets his way as well. Dillon looks cuttable in leagues of 10 teams or fewer. That might even be true in shorter-roster 12-team leagues.
