Jones leads offense; Dillon disappears again

Aaron Jones Headshot

The Packers ran the ball just 12 times in losing at Washington on Sunday. RB AJ Dillon logged only 4 carries for 15 yards as his playing time sank for the 2nd time in 3 games. He got just 16 total snaps, less than half of Aaron Jones' time. Jones managed only 23 yards on his 8 rushes but led the team with 10 targets and 9 receptions. He tallied 53 yards receiving and caught the team's only 2 offensive TDs. Dillon's recent decline in exposure and overall decline in effectiveness can only help Jones' fantasy outlook. A struggling WR corps should continue sending targets his way as well. Dillon looks cuttable in leagues of 10 teams or fewer. That might even be true in shorter-roster 12-team leagues.
