Shark Bites

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.

Recent Shark Bites

Packers RB Aaron Jones ran for 110 yards on 16 carries in Sunday's OT win over the Patriots. He trailed AJ Dillon by 1 carry and led him by 2 targets but collected 31 more total yards. Dillon wound up with 73 yards on 17 rushes and one 11-yard catch among 2 targets. Week 5 brings a positive matchup with the Giants.

Packers RB Aaron Jones mustered only 12 carries for 36 yards in Week 3. Facing a stout Bucs defense, A.J. Dillon (12-32) struggled to get going, too. Jones, though, lost a fumble just shy of the goal line after taking a hard shot from DT Vita Vea. A score there would have been huge, as Jones finished with only 3 catches for 11 yards on 4 targets. (Dillon added just 2 grabs for 6 yards on 3 targets.) This ground game will look to rebound against New England in Week 4. The Pats have allowed only 3.8 YPC to opposing RBs through 3 games.

Packers RB Aaron Jones dominated the Bears in Week 2, rushing 15 times for 132 yards and 1 score. He chipped in with 3 catches for 38 yards and another score. AJ Dillon out-carried Jones by 3, but note that Dillon handled 3 consecutive carries on Green Bay’s final, clock-killing drive…when the Packers led by 17. Per Next Gen Stats, Jones posted 4.91 rushing yards over expected per attempt — best among all Week 2 rushers. It was a much-needed bounce-back after his Week 1 dud. The upcoming schedule (at Bucs, vs. Patriots) isn’t ideal, but you can start Jones with confidence.

Wes Hodkiewicz of Packers.com expects RBs Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon to have a “big role” in the passing game. Jones saw 65 targets in 2021; Dillion handled 37. While Green Bay added several bodies to the WR corps, there’s uncertainty regarding how they’ll replace 224 targets left by Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Current projections have Jones for a career-high in catches.

11:31am EST 1/9/22

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Lions. He’d likely be playing if this game meant anything to Green Bay and should be back for the playoffs. All of the Packers’ other regulars on offense are active, although it’s unclear how much guys like Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams will play.
