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 HC Matt LaFleur confirmed that RB Aaron Jones and WR Christian Watson were on snap counts in Thursday night's loss to the Lions. Jones played 35% of the snaps and Watson 46% in their first games back from hamstring injuries. LaFleur added that he's "hopeful" that both guys can have full workloads vs. the Raiders in Week 5. We'll track their participation levels in practice next week.
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.
Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Lions. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported this morning that Green Bay will be cautious with Jones’ workload in his first game back. But we’re projecting him to lead the backfield in touches tonight. See where Jones sits in the Week 4 RB Rankings.
The Packers expect RB Aaron Jones to play tonight against the Lions, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. He adds that the team will "be careful" with Jones' workload. That adds some risk to putting Jones in your fantasy lineup. But we're not likely to know exactly what that means for his touch count. Check the Week 4 RB rankings and/or your Team Intel page for updates before setting your lineup. Ultimately, though, there will be some gut calls on how you want to weight Jones' risk-reward vs. your other option(s).
Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Lions.

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