Shark Bites

Packers RB A.J. Dillon exited in the 2nd half of Monday night's game vs. the Rams for a concussion check. He didn't return, but we've yet to see whether Dillon was actually diagnosed with a concussion. We'll look for an update from the team and monitor the practice reports this week. Dillon's absence against the Dolphins on Sunday would leave RB Aaron Jones in a workhorse role.

Recent Shark Bites

Packers RB A.J. Dillon posted 55 rushing yards on 15 carries in Week 2’s loss vs. the Falcons. He also added a single catch on his lone target for 8 yards. Green Bay was without starter Aaron Jones (hamstring) for this contest. Though Dillon didn’t have a massive scoring output, he seized 76.1% of the Packers’ RB touch opportunities on Sunday. Should Jones miss another game, fantasy managers can feel comfortable knowing that Dillon would likely be treated as a workhorse back again. Keep an eye on injury reports in the coming days to see if we’ll have Jones back for Week 3 vs. the Saints.

Packers RB coach Ben Sirmans gave his assessment of A.J. Dillon’s 2022 season. Dillion wasn’t anything special efficiency-wise (4.1 yards per carry; 7.4 per catch) but tallied a career-high seven rushing TDs. "This wasn't the type of year and expectations that, not only he had for himself but from what I had for him and what others in this building had for him," Sirmans said. "I think that he's the type of person, at least from what he's shown me, that he's going to respond to that challenge and come out and have a much more productive year. And you saw a lot of great things in spurts, but that was just the problem, it was just in spurts. It wasn't consistent. And that's what our goal is.” Dillion’s 10.9 rushes per game could increase slightly, depending on the performance of Jordan Love. If Aaron Jones remains healthy, though, it’ll be tough to count on the fourth-year back as anything more than a low-end RB2/FLEX.

Packers RB AJ Dillon rushed 11 times for 36 yards (3.3 per carry) and claimed Green Bay's only rushing score in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. He added 2 catches for 12 yards among 3 targets. RB Aaron Jones carried only 6 times for 25 yards (4.2) and added just 9 yards on 2 receptions. The 34 total yards were a season low for him. Week 17 brings a rematch with the soft Vikings defense. Jones tallied just 76 total yards on 8 touches in their Week 1 meeting. Dillon went 10-45-1 rushing and 5-46 receiving in that contest. Both Green Bay RBs will be in play for fantasy use against what has been a mid-pack scoring matchup for the position.

Packers HC Matt LaFleur said Tuesday that RB A.J. Dillon has cleared concussion protocol. He missed the 4th quarter of Monday night's win over the Rams to be checked for a head injury. Prior to exiting, Dillon had tallied 11 carries and 3 targets to Aaron Jones’ 11 carries and 5 targets. Look for a similar split against the Dolphins on Sunday.

Packers RB AJ Dillon ran for 93 yards and a TD on 18 carries in Sunday's win over the Bears, doubling RB Aaron Jones' rushing attempts. Dillon added 3 catches for 26 yards on 3 targets. It's his best fantasy outing of the year, edging his Week 1 points and following a Week 12 outing that stands as Dillon's 3rd best for the year. He gets the Rams, Dolphins and Vikings after a Week 14 bye. Jones managed just 9-26 on the ground Sunday, with 5 catches for 24 yards on 5 targets.
