Fantasy Spin: Jones has totaled three rushing touchdowns and another receiving score through his first two games, looking like a bona fide RB1 in all fantasy leagues at the moment. He'll try to keep it rolling in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday night.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones carried the ball 18 times for 168 yards, added 68 receiving yards and scored three touchdowns in the Packers 42-21 win over the Lions. It was Jones' day as he gashed the Lions in every which way throughout the game. Jones caught a seven-yard pass from quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the second quarter and then broke the game open with a fantastic 75-yard score to open the second half. He would later add another rushing score in a monster fantasy performance. Jones and the Packers will have an interesting test in Week 3 against the Saints.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones will have an appealing matchup Week 2 against the Lions. Detroit allowed 149 total rushing yards to the Bears last week and allowed the seventh most fantasy points to running backs in 2019. Jones posted 66 rushing yards with one touchdown in Week 1 and will go up against a Lions Defense that lost several starters to injury in the opener. Jones can safely be deployed in lineups as an RB1 for Week 2.
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones rushed 16 times for 66 yards and a touchdown and caught four passes for 10 yards in a 43-34 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: Jones didn't rip off a lot of big runs, but he found the end zone and had nine more carries than any other back. As long as he is headlining the Green Bay backfield, Jones is a dependable RB2 with RB1 upside.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones racked up 76 all-purpose yards with one rushing touchdown in the team's 43-34 triumph over the Vikings. Jones led the team with 16 touches from the backfield and was an excellent complement to a dynamite vertical attack. It was a fantastic start for the Packers offense and a solid fantasy day for Jones. He will remain on the RB1 map heading into Week 2.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones will face a Vikings Defense in Week 1 that allowed the 16th fewest fantasy points to opposing backs in 2019. Jones combined for 19 touchdowns last season and now gets a Week 1 matchup against a team he absolutely destroyed last season. In two games against the Vikings, Jones racked with 270 yards and three touchdowns in two games. Look for the Packers to run their offense through Jones in Week 1, making the talented runner an easy RB1 selection to kick off the 2020 season.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones said the team is currently working on a new deal with him. "Yes they definitely are. My agent and them are taking care of that. I'm gonna focus on football," Jones said. It makes sense with Jones heading into the final season of his rookie deal in 2020. Even though Green Bay surprisingly took running back A.J. Dillon in the second round this year, Jones should be the lead back this year and is far and away Green Bay's best running back. He's efficient with the rock in his hands and also catches plenty of passes from quarterback Aaron Rodgers, making him a high-end RB2, even if we see some touchdown regression in 2020.
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones said his agent is working on a contract extension with the team.
Fantasy Spin: Jones is a midrange RB1, and he'll have some fire to his feet with the likes of Jamaal Williams and AJ Dillon behind him.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones will play a huge role in 2020 as the focal point of the Packers offense. Jones enjoyed a career season in 2019, posting 1,558 all-purpose yards with 49 receptions and 19 total touchdowns. While his touchdown totals may regress a smidge this season, Jones still has averaged 5.0 yards per carry over 450 touches in the backfield through three seasons. The 25-year-old easily can be considered an RB1 in upcoming fantasy drafts and should be targeted as early as the back-half of the first round of drafts.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones will be entering the final year of his rookie deal that will pay him $2.13 million in 2020. After new contracts for Christian McCaffrey and Derrick Henry, the 25-year-old is on a long list of backs who will be looking to get paid heading into the 2021 campaign. Jones had the best season of his career in 2019, finishing with 1,084 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns off of 236 attempts. He also added 49 catches for 474 yards and three additional scores. If Jones manages to produce a similar output this season, he could be on his way to receiving big money moving forward, potentially earning five times more than his current salary.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones, who had a career year in 2019, thinks rookie running back A.J. Dillon's arrival will push him to work even harder entering the 2020 season. The Packers drafted Dillon 62nd overall in the second round back in April. Jones is also entering the last year of his deal, which means that Dillon could become a starter sooner than later if Jones goes elsewhere. But Jones, 26 this December, would love to sign a long-term deal to stay in Green Bay. Another big campaign in 2020 would help his cause. "I know it's the NFL. They're bringing in guys every day to compete so I mean it's just gonna raise my game and I'm excited to have him there and start working with him, teaching him the playbook and everything," Jones said. He is extremely efficient and the best back on the roster. Don't expect a gaudy number of touchdowns again this year, but Jones is at least a high-end RB2 for fantasy owners, even with Dillon added to the mix.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones saw most of his success in 2019 between the tackles, as he tied for the league lead with 10 touchdowns on inside runs and averaged 4.1 yards per rush on runs inside the tackles in the red zone, which was the most in the NFL among those with at least 15 such runs. Jones' 53 runs on which he hit 15-plus mph were the fourth-most in the NFL. The 25-year-old had his first 1,000-yard rushing season on 236 carries last year and led the league with 16 rushing touchdowns. He also caught 49 passes for 474 yards and three TDs. Even though he might not see an RB1 workload with second-rounder A.J. Dillon now in the mix, Jones is a high-end RB2 at the worst with RB1 upside.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones, who is heading into the final year of his deal in 2020, would like to finish his career with the Packers, but he knows that might not happen. Jones tied for the league lead with 19 touchdowns last year, but the Packers also drafted A.J. Dillon in the second round this year. Jones' agent, Chris Cabott, said that contract talks have taken place with the club. The fifth-round pick in 2017 had 1,558 yards from scrimmage in 2019 and needed the fewest carries (236) by a Packers running back to reach 1,000 yards rushing since John Brockington in 1971. But Green Bay hasn't given a second contract to a running back they drafted since James Starks in 2010. Jones is the best back in Green Bay by far, but he could lose even more touches in what could become more of a committee approach. He's unlikely to put up that many TDs again either, so Jones is more of a low-end RB1/high-end RB2.
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones said he wants to spend his entire career with the Packers. Jones' agent said the two sides have talked about a new contract and will continue to negotiate.
Fantasy Spin: Jones was one of the breakout fantasy players last season with 19 total touchdowns and over 1,500 total yards. He likely will have a similar role in 2020 and will be a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones was recently named to the NFLPA's Rising Stars list, which identifies the "top rookies and veterans poised to have a breakout season." The 25-year-old had his best campaign to date in 2019, finishing with 1,084 rushing yards and 16 rushing touchdowns off of 236 carries. He also added 49 catches, good for 474 yards and three additional scores. With the team reportedly focusing more on the run in 2020, the fourth-year man could be in store for another productive fantasy season, despite conceding a few touches to second-round pick A.J. Dillion. He is projected to be selected behind the likes of Austin Ekeler and Nick Chubb in fantasy drafts. However, he could easily finish ahead of them in many statistical categories by year's end.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones scored a league-high 14 touchdowns inside the red zone in 2019.
Fantasy Spin: It's worth mentioning 25 of his 33 red zone carries occurred inside the 5. Jones fared very well on those eight longer attempts as he scored six times. All this is notable because it seems very likely he'll either share or lose a bulk of those 25 carries to 247-pound rookie A.J. Dillon this year. While Jones has very little chance of matching last year's 16 rushing touchdowns, he will remain the clear lead back in Green Bay and should be considered as a strong RB2 option.
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones is entering the final year of his rookie contract. Coming off a 20-plus touchdown season, Jones will be pricey to re-sign, per Packers.com's Mike Spofford.
Fantasy Spin: Jones is coming off a break-out season, rushing for over 1,000 yards and adding another 474 receiving yards. He doesn't come without risk in fantasy football, though. The team is deeper at the position than last year and Jones has made it a full 16 games just once. Regardless, he remains in RB1 conversations entering draft season.
The Green Bay Packers used pick No. 62 to select Boston College running back A.J. Dillon. Dillon is a bruising running back who stands 6'0" and weighs in at 247 pounds. He is a non-factor in the passing game, having caught just 21 passes in three seasons at Boston College but he is a tough, rugged runner with a 4.53 40-yard dash. His landing spot in Green Bay is a bit cloudy as the Packers already have Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams on the roster. Of course, Jones is entering the final year of his contract so Dillon could be the starter in Green Bay as soon as 2021.
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones' agent met with the Packers at the NFL Scouting Combine to start preliminary contract extension talks, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Jones was one of the top running backs in the NFL in 2019 with 1,084 yards and 16 rushing touchdowns. He also posted 474 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns. He should receive a similar workload next season and can be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones was tied for the league lead with 32 broken tackles last season.
Fantasy Spin: His 16 rushing scores and 19 total touchdowns were also tied for the league lead in each category. Needless to say, Jones finally had that breakout season in his third year. Jones does everything you want in a fantasy back. He caught 49 balls for 474 yards and three scores as well as rushing for 1,084 yards on 4.6 yards per carry. He'll be a solid fallback option if you don't land Christian McCaffrey.
