The Packers rotated 3 RBs in Week 3, and it sounds like that'll remain the game plan going forward. "I really like the rotation of having all three guys because they’re distinctly different, but all three can play all three downs, and that says a lot," HC Mike McCarthy said. "We’ve never had this situation where you have three guys that can play three downs like that, so this will really help us moving forward." Jamaal Williams led the way with a 43% snap rate in last week's loss to the Redskins. Ty Montgomery was next at 29%, and Aaron Jones played 25% of the snaps. The touches went Montgomery 10, Williams 7 and Jones 7. There will be more work to go around when the Packers aren't playing from behind like they were in Week 3. But this committee might make all 3 guys tough to trust in fantasy lineups.

Packers RB Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that Aaron Jones will be returning from his 2-game suspension as the #3 RB. "Jamaal [Williams] and Ty [Montgomery] have played good football," McCarthy said. "I know what Aaron gives us, but his role will be secondary. Jamaal and Ty will be in the first slot." This shouldn't come as a surprise and doesn't mean Jones can't quickly climb the depth chart. He's a strong bench stash but shouldn't be in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) returned to practice on Sunday. He ended up missing about 2 weeks. We'll see if he can avoid a setback and build some momentum in the next couple of preseason games. Jones will open the regular season on a 2-game suspension but is still capable of eventually emerging as Green Bay's lead ball-carrier. His recent ADP is sitting in the late 8th round.

Packers RB Aaron Jones has missed over a week of training camp with a hamstring injury. We haven't heard a timetable for his return from the Packers or the media. It's been a rough month for Jones, who was slapped with a 2-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy in early July. He's still capable of carving out a role when he returns in Week 3 -- but he obviously needs to get over this hammy issue first. Jones is overvalued at his current 8th-round ADP.

Packers RB Aaron Jones has been suspended 2 games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. This is the result of his arrest last October for marijuana possession. Jones will be allowed to participate in training camp and the preseason but will miss Green Bay's first 2 games against the Bears and Vikings. The suspension gives RB Jamaal Williams a shot to grab the lead role and run with it. RB Ty Montgomery should also see significant action those first 2 games. Depending on how those 2 fare, Jones might struggle to get much playing time when he's reinstated for Week 3. We'll see what happens to his ADP, which is currently sitting in the 8th round, but he now looks like just a later-round flier.
