Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones is a must-start this week against the Denver Broncos. Jones was highly effective as a battering ram all game for the Packers in Week 2 and is likely to be used the same way for this matchup. Jones is clearly the lead back in the offense with over double the touches of teammateJamaal Williams. The Broncos have shown their ability to limit running back production so far this season, limiting rushers to an average of 3.47 yards per carry and three touchdowns. However, this week the Broncos will not be able to stack the box while facing Aaron Rodgers. As a home favorite, the game script should allow Jones to be involved throughout the game, making him a must-start for fantasy owners.
Green Bay Packers RBs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams will split work in an effort to keep Jones fresh for later in the season, according to head coach Matt LaFleur Wednesday, Sept. 18, who said he wants to 'even up' touches between the pair.
Fantasy Spin: Jones received 23 carries in Week 2. He has received 58.3% of the offensive snaps in the backfield thus far, with Williams playing more on special teams. Jones should continue to perform at a high-end RB2 level throughout the season while Williams isn't currently worth having on rosters.
Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said that he wants to keep running back Aaron Jones fresh throughout the season and wants to "even up" touches between Jones and Jamaal Williams. LaFleur thinks the balance will change week to week. It's something to keep an eye on, but it shouldn't deter you from starting Jones this week at home against the Broncos, where he'll be a low-end RB1/high-end RB2. Jones had a career-high 23 carries for 116 yards and a touchdown in Week 2, while Williams ran the ball nine times. Jones had six targets in the passing game (four catches) while Williams had four (three catches). Williams is a necessary handcuff for Jones owners.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones rushed for over 100 yards in the victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Jones finished his game with 23 attempts for 116 yards and a touchdown, adding 34 yards and four receptions. Jones struggled in the opening matchup against the Chicago Bears, but this performance will give fantasy owners confidence in starting him going forwards.
Packers' RB Aaron Jones ran for 116 yards on 23 carries with one touchdown in Sunday's win against the Vikings.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones is a borderline RB2 this week, with the matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. The team gave Jones more touches last week, but when the team was in no-huddle they seemed to opt for Jamaal Williams out on the field. The Packers are currently the favored team, but the Vikings were able to stifle the Atlanta Falcons ground game in the previous matchup. There is hope that Jones could have a productive game, with his matchup against them last season ending with him having 72 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones struggled in the opening game of the season. Jones finished the game with 13 rushing attempts, managing to get 39 yards on the ground- and failing to catch his single target. A matchup against the Chicago Bears, who have one of the better units in the league, was always going to be tough. However, it should be noted that Jones vastly out-touched backup Jamaal Williams. So owners can take some comfort from the fact that the team won't be operating a committee backfield.
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones rushed 13 times for 39 yards and caught one pass for no gain in a 10-3 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: The Packers couldn't muster much offense against the Bears in general, but on the plus side, Jones dominated the backfield touches. He looks like the back to own in Green Bay.
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (undisclosed) returned against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Sept. 5.
Fantasy Spin: Whatever was bothering him appears to have been a minor issue. He has the highest upside of Green Bay's backs, but consistency is likely to remain an issue.
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (undisclosed) is being checked out by trainers on the sidelines during the Week 1 game against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Sept. 5.
Fantasy Spin: If Jones does have to miss any time, Jamaal Williams would likely handle a bulk of the carries and become a solid flex option.
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 1. The team did not practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.
Fantasy Spin: Jones likely will receive most of the playing time at running back against the Chicago Bears. He should be a starting option on all fantasy leagues this week.
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) fully participated in practice Monday, Sept. 2.
Fantasy Spin: Jones should receive most of the work at running back this week and can be a solid No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones has a tough matchup in the opening matchup against the Chicago Bears. Jones is likely the lead running back for the Packers, after previously splitting carries with Jamaal Williams. Jones was an effective last season once he was given more of the carries, and ended the season with 728 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground. The Chicago Bears were the most effective offense against running backs last season, only giving up an average of 12 points to the position. Jones is a viable starting option but is unlikely to finish at the top of the position in this matchup.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones missed the preseason matchup against the Oakland Raiders, due to the issues with the field. Jones is yet to take any meaningful snaps in the new offense but is thought to be the starting running back. The Packers may opt to put him in the team's last matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Jones has great fantasy value this season if he is able to remain healthy.
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, RB Aaron Jones and WR Davante Adams are among the 33 players that will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 22.
Fantasy Spin: Rodgers, Jones and Adams likely will not play in a game again until Week 1. All three players will be weekly starting options in all fantasy leagues with Rodgers and Adams being one of the first players selected from their position.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones is looking forward to getting into a preseason game. The Packers are due to play Oakland Raiders this week in preseason, and Jones is wanting to be involved, having been limited with a hamstring injury earlier in camp. Jones is widely considered to be the starting running back for the team, with Jamaal Williams being the backup for him. Jones was highly effective last season, averaging over 5.4 yards per carrying. If you are able to pick up Jones as your RB2 this draft season, then that would give you a significant advantage at the position for the season.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones continued his comeback from a recent injury in practice, leading the team in drills. Jones is yet to play in a preseason game but is widely considered to be the team's starter at the position. Backup Jamaal Williams returned to the field but is unlikely to challenge Jones to start the season. Fantasy owners might want to see Jones in the preseason before they feel his ADP is a good value, but given the situation, he is in, handcuffing him late with Williams is a great option.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones has returned to practice after sitting out recent sessions with a hamstring injury. Jones missed six sessions and the preseason opener against the Houston Texans with the injury, but the running back himself said that he "wouldn't even call it an injury; it was just right". Jones is widely expected to be the Packers starting running back, in a much-improved offense, but he will disappoint fantasy owners if he cannot remain healthy. Fantasy owners will need to monitor the situation, with the running back and construct their roster accordingly- if he struggles to prove his health before fantasy drafts then his handcuff Jamaal Williams could be a target in mid to late rounds.
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) participated in practice Saturday, Aug. 10.
Fantasy Spin: Jones is in line to become the Packers starting running back this season and should receive plenty of touches in games. He can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.
Green Bay Packers RBs Aaron Jones (hamstring) and Jamaal Williams (hamstring) have missed six and nine straight days of practice, respectively. Tra Carson (neck) missed practice Tuesday, Aug. 6, leaving Keith Ford, Corey Grant, Darrin Hall and Dexter Williams as the only fully-healthy options.
Fantasy Spin: Jones and Williams don't appear in jeopardy of missing any regular-season action, but they're obviously worth monitoring. They'll cut into each other's fantasy upside when healthy but there should be enough work for both to be viable starting options, with Jones being the preferred selection in both standard and PPR formats.
