Shark Bites

Packers RB Aaron Jones is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. He suffered a mild calf strain on Thursday and reportedly wanted to play today. But the always-cautious Packers medical staff is holding him out. We’ll see if Jones can make it back for Week 8. Jamaal Williams figures to lead the Green Bay backfield today and is a strong fantasy play. Rookie A.J. Dillon should also take on an expanded role in the running game and is a RB3 or flex option in non-PPR leagues.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (ankle) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He should be ready for his usual role against the Steelers this weekend.

Packers RB Aaron Jones has been limited in the first 2 practices of the week and is on the injury report with an ankle. We've heard nothing to suggest that this is a real concern for his Week 4 status, but check back tomorrow for another update.

The Packers have agreed to a new 4-year deal with RB Aaron Jones. His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, says it's a $48 million pact, including a $13 million signing bonus. (We'll see about further details.) Reports had continued that Green Bay wanted to keep Jones around, and this likely indicates he wouldn't have found bigger money on the open market. Jones figures to remain the lead back. AJ Dillon will continue to find limited work available in his 2nd season. Dillon could see his role grow, though, with Jamaal Williams heading to free agency. We'll see how the whole backfield settles out.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) is active for tonight's game against the 49ers. Everything we've heard over the last few hours suggests he'll be limited in this one. That, of course, could change based on how he's playing and feeling. It's also worth noting that this is a tough matchup vs. a 49ers defense that sits 7th in Football Outsiders' run defense rankings and 3rd in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs. The strength of your other options should determine whether you want to roll the dice on Jones tonight. We'd avoid RBs Tyler Ervin and Dexter Williams with Jones active.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the Packers are "hopeful" RB Aaron Jones (calf) will be active for tonight's game against the 49ers. A final decision won't be made until warmups, though. And Rapoport adds that Jones "may end up being a limited role." It sounds like the absences of RBs Jamaal Williams and A.J. Dillon might be pushing Green Bay to get Jones back out there. We'll see if he's up when inactives come out around 7 pm ET and if we hear anything about his expected role. As of now, we'd consider Jones a risky Week 9 fantasy play.
