  • Aaron Jones, AJ Dillon Not Expected To Play In Preseason Opener

    Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said that he doesn't expect running backs Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon to play in the team's first preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers on Friday, Aug. 12. And with Patrick Taylor dinged up in training camp, it will present a big opportunity for Iowa undrafted free-agent running back Tyler Goodson. A lot of teams will be resting their stars in the first preseason game, so fantasy managers shouldn't read anything into it. Dillon ate into more of Jones' workload toward the end of last season and should remain heavily involved on the ground again in 2022, but Jones could see more targets through the air with All-Pro receiver Davante Adams now in Las Vegas. Jones should remain a top-10 fantasy RB target in fantasy drafts, while Dillon should be considered a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 with upside.

  • Aaron Jones Could See More Targets

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard will be the team's No. 1 receiver with Davante Adams now in Las Vegas, but that doesn't mean Lazard will see 100-plus targets in 2022. ESPN's Rob Demovsky wouldn't be surprised if running back Aaron Jones gets a bigger share of aerial targets after he ranked second on the team in targets last year with 65. The Packers also want to get AJ Dillon on the field more often, so perhaps the team moves Jones around to get him the ball in space more often. Jones is still a top-10 fantasy RB, but Dillon's emergence might have some fantasy managers hesitant to pull the trigger on Jones. The 27-year-old should be more attractive in PPR formats after finishing the 2021 season as the RB13 with 799 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 171 carries, while adding 52 receptions for 391 yards and six more scores.
