  • AJ Dillon Officially Re-Signs With Packers

    Headshot for AJ Dillon

    The Green Bay Packers officially re-signed running back AJ Dillon on Friday. Dillon was originally selected by the Packers in the second round (62nd overall) in 2020 out of Boston College. He has played in 60 games (11 starts) for the team during the regular season and has compiled 2,428 yards on 597 carries (4.1 yards per carry) with 16 touchdowns while recording 86 receptions for 763 yards (8.9 yards per catch) with two touchdowns. The 25-year-old had a career-low 3.4 yards per carry in 15 regular-season games (six starts) in Green Bay in 2023 and failed to take advantage of Aaron Jones missing some time with injuries. Dillon missed the final three games due to a neck stinger, but he should be fully healthy for the start of the 2024 season this fall, where he'll be back as the No. 2 RB behind newcomer Josh Jacobs.

  • AJ Dillon Expected To Return To Packers

    Headshot for AJ Dillon

    Free-agent running back AJ Dillon is expected to re-sign with the Green Bay Packers on an undisclosed deal, pending a physical, according to sources. Dillon will return to the organization that selected him with their second-round pick in 2020 out of Boston College. The 25-year-old had more of an opportunity to pick up extra touches in Green Bay's backfield with Aaron Jones missing some time with injury, but he failed to take advantage of it and finished with a career-low 3.4 yards per carry on 178 rushing attempts. Dillon had a disappointing 613 rushing yards and only two touchdowns in 15 regular-season games (six starts). Jones is now in Minnesota, but Dillon will return to the Packers to play second fiddle to Josh Jacobs now.

  • RB AJ Dillon Eyeing Deal With Cowboys, Giants, Colts

    Headshot for AJ Dillon

    Most of the top available running backs have quickly found a new home this offseason. The 2024 free agent class featured several prominent names, and they have switched teams (in certain cases, remaining in the division while doing so). AJ Dillon is among the best remaining backfield options, and he appears to have a shortlist of destinations.

  • AJ Dillon Has Several Options In Free Agency

    Headshot for AJ Dillon

    Free-agent running back AJ Dillon has several options in free agency outside of the Green Bay Packers, with sources saying that he's looking at the New York Giants, Indianapolis Colts and Dallas Cowboys. The Giants lost Saquon Barkley to the division-rival Eagles, but they also recently added Devin Singletary to be their lead back. The Colts are looking for a complement to starter Jonathan Taylor after Zack Moss signed with the Bengals. The Cowboys, who lost Tony Pollard to the Titans, would be the best fit for Dillon from a playing-time perspective. the 25-year-old former second-round pick in 2020 out of Boston College had a career-low 3.4 yards per carry in 15 regular-season games for Green Bay last year and hasn't proven that he can handle a lead-back role in his four years in the NFL.

  • Packers Aiming To Reduce Aaron Jones' Cap Number, Not Expected To Re-Sign AJ Dillon

    Headshot for AJ Dillon

    Just more than a year ago, the Packers helped lay the groundwork for a rough running back year. They reached a pay-cut agreement with Aaron Jones, ensuring he would stay for the 2023 season. That pact paid off, with Jones helping drive the team to the divisional round. GM Brian Gutekunst said earlier this offseason […]

  • AJ Dillon Unlikely To Return To Green Bay

    Headshot for AJ Dillon

    Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon might've played his last season with the organization. Dillon is set to become a free agent this offseason and it doesn't sound like the organization is too eager to bring Dillon back next season. The former second-round pick struggled to establish himself during his contract season. Dillon rushed 178 times for 613 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games. Dillon received plenty of chances with fellow back Aaron Jones missing six games. Despite the extra attempts, Dillon averaged a career-low 3.4 yards per carry. He should have plenty of interest as a backup, but Dillon will have a tough time finding himself a lead back role heading into next season.

  • AJ Dillon Inactive On Saturday

    Headshot for AJ Dillon

    Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon (neck, thumb) has been ruled out ahead of Saturday's playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers. Dillon hasn't suited up since Week 17 as he continues to deal with multiple injuries. His absence means that Aaron Jones is going to see the bulk of the carries during this game. Jones has a tough matchup against the 49ers defense, but could be worth a look as a DFS option with the Packers shorthanded.

  • AJ Dillon Given Questionable Tag For Divisional Round

    Headshot for AJ Dillon

    Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon (neck, thumb) is listed as questionable to play on Saturday in the Divisional Round against the San Francisco 49ers. Dillon actually practiced for the first time on Thursday since suffering a neck stinger in Week 17, but it doesn't mean the 25-year-old will be active as the Packers look to pull off a second straight huge upset, this time over the NFC's top-seeded 49ers. Even if Dillon is active on Saturday, he's most likely to see very few touches behind Aaron Jones, who has now gone over 100 yards rushing in four straight games. If Dillon misses his third straight game, Emanuel Wilson and Patrick Taylor will continue chipping in to spell Jones in Green Bay's backfield. Those playing DFS in the Divisional Round should be looking to avoid Dillon if he's active.

  • No Practice For AJ Dillon On Wednesday

    Headshot for AJ Dillon

    Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon (thumb/neck) did not practice on Wednesday. He is dealing with thumb and neck injuries that caused him to miss the Wild Card win over the Dallas Cowboys. His absence on Saturday would mean another big workload for Aaron Jones against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Divisional Round. If Dillon does play, he'll have limited DFS and fantasy value against a defense that allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs during the regular season. Jones will be an intriguing option either way due to his explosiveness and pass-catching upside, but the matchup could prove to be too much for him, too. Green Bay must release their official game-day injury designations on Thursday, so we'll get a better idea of Dillon's status tomorrow.

  • AJ Dillon Still Not Practicing

    Headshot for AJ Dillon

    Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon (neck, thumb) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's estimated practice report. Dillon has not practiced since he suffered a neck stinger in Week 17. He's going to need to get back to practice on Wednesday or Thursday to have a chance to play in Saturday's Divisional Round contest on the road in San Francisco against the 49ers. And even if Dillon does play this weekend, he's going to take a back seat to Aaron Jones, who is playing his best ball into the playoffs. If the 25-year-old Dillon is forced to miss a third straight game, Emanuel Wilson and Patrick Taylor will continue to compete for change-of-pace touches behind Jones in Green Bay's backfield. Dillon averaged a career-low 3.4 yards per carry with only two rushing touchdowns in 15 regular-season games in 2023.

  • AJ Dillon Officially Inactive For Wild-Card Round

    Headshot for AJ Dillon

    Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon (thumb, neck) is officially inactive for Sunday's playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. He missed all three practices this week and was trending in the wrong direction after the team listed him as questionable. With Dillon sidelined, the Packers will deploy Patrick Taylor as the No. 2 option behind Aaron Jones out of the backfield. Jones should operate as an every-down back but could have some difficulty running against the Cowboys' strong defensive front.
