Green Bay Packers
Equanimeous St. Brown
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (knee) rushed for 23 yards on 10 carries in Sunday's 36-28 win over the Los Angeles Rams. He returned to action Sunday after missing one week with an MCL sprain. The Packers have a bye in Week 13 and eased Jones back into action by giving him just 10 rushing attempts. AJ Dillon recorded 20 carries compared to Jones 10. The 26-year-old will have an extra week to recover from his MCL sprain and should see more of a workload against the Chicago Bears in Week 14. Jones racked up 110 total yards and a receiving touchdown in his previous game against Chicago.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (knee) will play Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. Jones is always a must-start RB1 play when healthy and while he might not be totally healthy and the Rams defense is solid, you still have to deploy Jones in season-long leagues because of his upside. Wide receiver Allen Lazard (shoulder) will play too and has some flex appeal. His presence means that Marquez Valdes-Scantling takes a big hit in value for Week 12.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (knee) wants to play on Sunday but is expected to be a true game-time decision, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Packers acknowledge that they have a Week 13 bye, so holding Jones out of Sunday's game would give him two additional weeks of rest. Of course, even if he is active, Jones will likely split time with A.J. Dillon. As such, he falls into the RB2 category and is not a must-start due to his injury status.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (knee) is being listed as questionable for the Week 12 showdown against the Los Angeles Rams. Jones was limited in practice the last two days, so he would seem to have a good chance of returning this weekend after missing one game due to a minor MCL sprain suffered in Week 10. However, the Packers have their bye coming in Week 13, so if Jones is active on Sunday, they could choose to limit his workload to keep him fresh for the stretch run. We wouldn't be surprised if the Packers kept him out as a precaution, either. If Jones is active, the combination of the risk of his snaps being limited and a tough Rams defense will make him a volatile RB2. If he misses a second straight game, AJ Dillon will be in line for the majority of backfield work once again and would have RB1 upside.
It sounds as though Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (knee) will be a game-time decision on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, according to The Athletic's Matt Schneidman. Head coach Matt LaFleur said Jones made it through Wednesday's walkthrough practice well. Jones was limited on Wednesday after spraining his MCL in Week 10 and missing last Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The Rams defense isn't as scary as they were a season ago, but they aren't the best matchup either, and there's a chance that the Packers limit Jones' snaps in his first game back. If Jones returns in Week 12 and is limited, it'll make him a volatile RB2 for fantasy managers. AJ Dillon had 11 carries for 53 yards (4.82 yards per tote) and caught all six of his targets for 44 yards as the team's primary back in Week 11.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (knee) was back at practice on Wednesday after missing last week's game. It was a limited practice to see how his knee responded, but it's obviously a good sign that Jones was back out there. With the Packers having their bye week coming up, it would seem foolish to press Jones into action this weekend, so we should still expect A.J. Dillon to carry the majority of the workload on Sunday. However, if Jones is able to continue practicing, he may be activated and split work with Dillon, which would torpedo the fantasy value of both backs.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. As expected, Jones won't play in Week 11 after sustaining a sprained MCL in his right knee during the Week 10 win over the Seahawks. The 26-year-old is expected to miss 1-to-2 weeks. Packers RB AJ Dillon will lead the team's backfield and is a surefire RB1 against a Vikings defense that allows 130 yards a game on the ground. The 23-year-old has been productive this season, rushing for 421 yards on 97 attempts while catching 16 passes for 196 yards and a score over 10 games in 2021. Jones is considered week-to-week, and his next chance to return will be Week 12 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (knee) missed his second straight day of practice this week on Thursday. Jones is expected to miss one to two weeks after suffering a sprained MCL in the Week 10 win over the Seattle Seahawks, so his absence at practice this week isn't a big surprise. A.J. Dillon will take over the team's lead-back duties for however long Jones is out, and he'll have RB1 upside this weekend against a Minnesota Vikings defense that is allowing 130.6 rushing yards per game through 10 weeks. With Jones getting injured last Sunday, Dillon took over and handled a season-high 21 carries for 66 yards and two touchdowns while adding two catches for 62 yards through the air.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (knee) was not at practice on Wednesday, but that should come as no surprise after he suffered an MCL sprain on Sunday. Jones is expected to miss a couple of weeks, with A.J. Dillon filling in for Jones in the meantime. It remains to be seen if the Packers will rotate Dillon with Patrick Taylor, as has been their tendency over the last few seasons, or if they give Dillon Jones' work in addition to the workload Dillon was already getting. Regardless, Dillon is a borderline RB1 in one of the better offenses in football and would be a set-it-and-forget-it play if he takes on the bulk of Jones' work while the veteran is out.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (knee) was diagnosed with a mild MCL sprain and is expected to miss one to two weeks. This timeline for a return means that he doesn't need to be placed on IR, so he will likely be back in the lineup after the Packers' Week 13 BYE. This seems like the best-case scenario for Jones, as it appeared to be a far more significant injury. He has seen his role in the offense be diminished this year as A.J. Dillon has taken on a more significant workload, but Jones will still be in the RB1 discussion upon his eventual return to the lineup. For as long as he remains out of action, Dillon can be valued as a high-end RB2 with the potential to put up RB1 numbers in the dynamic Green Bay offense.
Updating an earlier report, Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (knee) may have avoided serious ACL injury. The veteran was ruled out for the remainder of the Week 10 matchup against the Seahawks because of a right knee injury. However, although things didn't look good at the time -- mainly since Jones needed assistance off the field by medical staff -- team officials are under the impression that he sustained a sprained MCL, which would be good news considering the alternative of a season-ending torn ACL. Nonetheless, he will undergo further testing on Monday but it's not unreasonable to expect some absences moving ahead. If that's the case, A.J. Dillon will be in line for a more prominent role moving ahead.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (knee) exited the Week 10 matchup against the Seahawks. The veteran went down in the third quarter and was observed immediately holding his right knee. While he attempted to leave the field under his own power, he wasn't successful and needed assistance by team medical staff. Jones is undoubtedly one of the most prominent members of the offense and is currently sitting on six total touchdowns on the year, so an extended absence wouldn't be good by any means. Nonetheless, he is questionable to return, but in the meantime, A.J. Dillon will attempt to pick up the pieces.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones is in a smash spot against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10. The Seahawks allow 20.9 fantasy points per game to fantasy running backs, ranked 29th overall in the league. Packers star QB Aaron Rodgers (COVID-19) is expected to return in Week 10; Jones should be able to rebound this Sunday after rushing for 53 yards on 12 carries in a Week 9 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs. The 26-year-old continues to be heavily utilized in Green Bay's passing game and owns 14% of the team's target share, eighth among all running backs. Jones is a surefire RB1 and should be one of the top-scoring backs in Week 10.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones is expected to see heavy volume against the Kansas City Chiefs after star QB Aaron Rodgers was ruled out in Week 9. He rushed for 59 yards on 15 attempts and a touchdown while catching 7-of-11 targets for 51 yards receiving in last Thursday's win over the Arizona Cardinals. The Chiefs defense rank 20th against opposing teams running backs, allowing 121.8 rushing yards and 17.5 fantasy points per game in 2021. Jones has become an instrumental part of the passing game and has hauled in at least four receptions in four straight contests. Despite the Packers not having Rodgers, Jones is a surefire RB1 against the Chiefs in Week 9.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones could be leaned on heavily in Thursday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. The Packers will be without the top two wide receivers, Davante Adams and Allen Lazard. Jones will look to bounce back after rushing for 19 yards on six carries and catching all five targets for 20 yards in a Week 7 win over the Washington Football Team. The 26-year-old has racked up 590 total yards and six touchdowns over seven games in 2021. Arizona's defense allows 11 fantasy points per game to opposing team running backs, ranked first among all NFL teams. Despite the tough matchup, Jones is a surefire RB1 in Thursday's showdown against the Cardinals.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones finished with only 19 yards off six attempts. However, he managed to semi-make amends for his PPR managers by catching all five of his targets for 20 yards. The 26-year-old has been hit or miss to some degree this season. Still, he remains a must-start moving ahead based on upside alone. Nonetheless, with a tough matchup up ahead against the Arizona Cardinals, fantasy managers should consider an alternative for DFS contests. However, his designation for seasonal formats should remain the same as in previous weeks.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones continues to produce for fantasy managers. He rushed 13 times for 76 yards and caught all four targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' 24-14 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 6. The 26-year-old has found the end zone six times over his last six games this season. Jones has made the most out of his receptions out of the backfield, averaging 8.9 YAC per reception, seventh among all running backs. Washington is ranked 28th in rush DVOA and allows 20 fantasy points per game to opposing team's running backs. Jones should be busy on Sunday and is set up to have a massive performance in a plus matchup against Washington in Week 7.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones finished with 76 yards off 13 carries during the win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday. He also added four catches for 34 yards, with one of those grabs resulting in an end-zone trip late in the third quarter. Although Jones only has one game with at least 100 rushing yards throughout the first six weeks, he has more than made up for it as a pass-catcher by producing his fourth touchdown reception of the year in Week 6. With the defensively inept Washington Football Team on tap, the 26-year-old should continue starting in all fantasy formats, with an added boost for those in PPR leagues.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's Week 6 game against the Chicago Bears. He was a limited participant in practice throughout the week but is all systems go for Week 6. The 26-year-old has rushed for 309 yards on 70 attempts and two touchdowns while catching 17-of-19 targets for 132 yards and three scores over five games in 2021. The Bears have been tough against the run this season and rank fourth in rush DVOA. Despite the tough matchup, Jones is a low-end RB1, and fantasy managers can start the Packers running back with confidence in Week 6.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (ankle) and tight end Robert Tonyan (knee) were limited practice participants on Wednesday. Jones continues to be bothered by an ankle injury, but he hasn't missed any time on game days. In the Week 5 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, he carried the ball 14 times for 103 yards while catching four of his five targets for six yards. The Chicago Bears defense will present a challenge in Week 6, but the 26-year-old is the RB6 after five weeks and is a must-start week in and week out. Tonyan should be able to play this weekend unless he suffers a setback, but he's been dropped in most leagues after a slow start to the season. Through five games, he has only nine catches on 17 targets for 82 yards and a touchdown.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Cincinnati Bengals. The 26-year-old was limited in practice for the second straight week due to an ankle injury but will play in Week 5. Surprisingly, the Bengals have been good against the run and are 11th in DOVA, allowing 65 rushing yards per game. Jones is the RB4 in overall fantasy points with 206 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 56 attempts while hauling 13-of-14 targets for an additional 126 yards and three scores. Fantasy managers can count on Jones to produce as a top-five running back this Sunday.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (ankle) remained a limited practice participant on Wednesday. Jones continues to be limited by his ankle in practices, but he has yet to miss a game so far this season. There's nothing to suggest that he'll be in any danger of missing a Week 5 date with the Cincinnati Bengals. Through four weeks, Jones is the RB4 in overall fantasy points with 206 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 56 attempts while catching 13 of his 14 targets for an additional 126 yards and three trips to paydirt. Unless the 26-year-old has an injury setback in practice later this week, he should be locked and loaded as a top-five fantasy running back this weekend.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones carried the ball 15 times for 48 yards and added three catches for 51 yards in the team's Week 4 win over the Steelers. Jones saw the same amount of carries as teammate A.J. Dillon but punctuated his play with a 27-yard receptions to break a talented Steelers defense. Despite not finding pay-dirt, Jones will be remain a fantastic RB1 option in an explosive offense that prioritizes underneath passing opportunities to running backs and tight ends.
After practicing on a limited basis all week, Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (ankle) was removed from the final injury report for Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Backup A.J. Dillon (back) popped up on the injury report on Thursday, but he practiced on a limited basis the last two days and is also good to go for Sunday. Jones only had seven touches in the blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 1, but since then he's touched the football 44 times for 211 total yards and five touchdowns. The Steelers defense has allowed only 206 rushing yards and no touchdowns to running backs in the first three weeks, but Jones remains a must-start RB1 in this offense.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (ankle) has put in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday this week, while backup A.J. Dillon (back) popped up on the injury report as a limited practice participant on Thursday. There's nothing to suggest that either player is in danger of missing a Week 4 tilt against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but we'll keep an eye on their final designations on Friday. Through three games, Jones has played 119 snaps to Dillon's 53 and remains Green Bay's primary back. He has 41 carries for 158 yards and two touchdowns and has caught all 10 of his targets for 75 yards and another three scores. Despite a matchup against a Steelers D that has yet to allow a TD to a running back so far in 2021, Jones remain a must-start RB1.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
