A.J. Dillon Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

The Packers gave RB Josh Jacobs a big four-year, $48 million deal in free agency. But HC Matt LaFleur suggested on Wednesday that the team might stick with a RB-by-committee approach this season.

The Packers re-signed RB A.J. Dillon to a one-year deal, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Dillon didn't seem to garner much interest on the open market after averaging a career-low 3.4 yards per carry last year. He'll return to Green Bay as a clear backup behind RB Josh Jacobs, who inked a four-year, $48 million deal earlier this week.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (thumb, neck) is inactive for tonight's Divisional Round game vs. the 49ers. That should again leave RB Aaron Jones in a workhorse role. He's totaled 84 carries and 10 targets over his last four games.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (thumb, neck) is listed as questionable for Saturday night's Divisional Round game vs. the 49ers. He only got in a limited practice on Thursday. We'll look for further updates on Dillon's status for this one. RB Aaron Jones should remain Green Bay's workhorse in San Francisco, but an active Dillon would be a threat to steal goal-line carries.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (thumb, neck) is inactive for today's Wild Card game vs. the Cowboys. That should leave RB Aaron Jones in a workhorse role, with RBs Patrick Taylor and Emanuel Wilson behind him.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (thumb, neck) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Cowboys. His absence will again leave RB Aaron Jones in a workhorse role. Jones has racked up 63 carries and nine targets over the last three games -- although those were all Green Bay wins. The Packers are currently 7-point underdogs in Dallas.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (thumb, neck) did not practice on Wednesday. He missed the regular-season finale and is iffy for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Cowboys. We'll track Dillon's status over the next few days.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (thumb, neck) is out for Sunday’s regular-season finale vs. the Bears. That should leave RB Aaron Jones in a workhorse role in this must-win game.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (thumb) is active for today’s game vs. the Panthers. He was limited in practice all week with his broken thumb. It’s unclear how big a role Dillon will be able to play in this one. He shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups. Dillon’s return is just a slight ding against RB Aaron Jones, who remains a solid fantasy starter.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (thumb) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Panthers. HC Matt LaFleur sounded optimistic on Friday about Dillon’s chances of returning for this one. He’d be a desperation fantasy play but would ding RB Aaron Jones’ outlook.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (thumb) was limited in Wednesday's practice. We'll see if he's able to play through his broken thumb on Sunday vs. the Panthers. Dillon wouldn't be much of a fantasy option but would ding RB Aaron Jones' value.

Packers RB Aaron Jones drew 13 of Green Bay's 17 rushing attempts in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. That marked an 86.7% share of RB carries for the game. Jones led the backfield with 4 targets as well, but he actually trailed RB Patrick Taylor in routes. Jones also led Taylor by just 4 total snaps. It amounted to Jones basically taking the place of AJ Dillon -- who missed the game with a thumb injury. That's surprising because Jones has seen strong receiving usage throughout his career. Green Bay gets a high-upside RB-scoring matchup with Carolina in Week 16. That will help Jones' outlook, regardless of Dillon's status. But Sunday's usage adds some uncertainty to Jones' touch outlook.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Bucs. RB A.J. Dillon (thumb) is inactive, leaving RBs Patrick Taylor and Kenyan Drake behind Jones. There’s certainly a chance that Jones dominates work today, but the Packers might also limit his work in his first action since Week 11. He carries a wide range of outcomes this week: a RB3-level floor to a RB1-level ceiling.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (thumb) is not expected to play against the Bucs today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That'll leave Green Bay's backfield to Aaron Jones, Patrick Taylor, and Kenyan Drake, who was elevated from the practice squad on Saturday. It's uncertain how big a workload the Packers are willing to give Jones in his first game since Week 11, but Dillon's absence certainly adds upside to Jones' fantasy profile.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is expected to play vs. the Bucs today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. No word yet on whether RB A.J. Dillon will play through his broken thumb. Dillon's absence would add upside to Jones -- although we'd be surprised if the Packers gave Jones a huge workload in his first action since Week 11.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (thumb) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Bucs. He only got in a limited practice on Friday with his broken thumb. "We're kinda working through it right now," HC Matt LaFleur said of Dillon's ability to play on Sunday. "We'll see where we're at... Had it padded pretty good." Dillon's already limited pass-catching ability would be further curtailed if he suits up this weekend. He's not a recommended Week 15 fantasy play.
