What You Need to Know:

  • After flirting with other teams in free agency, Jones returned to GB last March on a 4-year, $48 million deal.
  • He missed 1 game with a Week 10 right MCL sprain (and 1 for rest in Week 18). He sprained his left MCL in 2017; his right MCL in 2017 and 2018.
  • When active, Jones saw AJ Dillon take a bite out of his rushing role. In 15 games together, Jones barely out-carried Dillon, 171-162. Jones predictably topped him in targets (65-30).
  • Jones’ 4 rushing scores dipped from 9 the year prior. He handled 37.2% of Green Bay's red zone rushes — 2nd behind Dillon’s 45.3%.
  • Jones’ PFF Elusive Rating (63.2), YAC per attempt (3.15) and YPC (4.6) all marked clear declines from 2020. Health likely played a role.
  • All told, Jones finished as an RB1 only 4 times, although he added an RB13 finish.
  • He ran behind a Packers O-line that ranked 23rd in PFF run blocking grade. Injuries and depth concerns have this unit profiling similarly in 2022.
  • Dillon returns to steal a sizable chuck of the backfield touches. Only in year 3, Dillion’s likely nearing peak form.
  • The loss of Devante Adams, though, allows for greater TD potential. Last year, Adams garnered 14 targets inside the 10 yard-line, converting 7 into scores.
  • Green Bay added bodies at WR. But between rookies Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs and veteran Sammy Watkins, there’s no lock to produce right away. So Jones should remain a major pass-catching threat.
  • Aaron Rodgers certainly remains one of the game’s top QBs. Last year, he ranked 3rd in PFF passing grade; 1st in QBR.
  • Wes Hodkiewicz of Packers.com expects RBs Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon to have a “big role” in the passing game.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Jones, 28 in December, probably won’t carry an RB1 ceiling for much longer.

He’s played a full season only once in his 5-year career. And AJ Dillon has clearly emerged as a worthy backfield partner.

The path to Jones delivering as a fringe RB1 is via the receiving game. With Green Bay missing ~240 targets from 2021, Jones is a prime candidate to see a boosted role. He’s ultimately fairly priced at a current RB12 ADP.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that tests on the injured ankle of Packers RB Aaron Jones came back negative Monday and that Jones "should be able to play this week." We'll be tracking Jones' status throughout the week to confirm, but it appears fantasy football managers dodged a bullet here. Green Bay hosts the Cowboys on Sunday.

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.
