Green Bay Packers
Equanimeous St. Brown
Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur referred to Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon as a "1A,1B" tandem when asked about his two studs in the backfield. With Jones still getting back to 100% in his first game back since spraining his MCL, Dillon handled 25 touches against the Los Angeles Rams. In Week 14 against the Chicago Bears, Dillon could once again have a significant role in a game where the Packers are heavy favorites. With the extremely cold weather at Lambeau Field starting to become a factor, Dillon's bruising running style could wear down the defense late in games, as we saw him accomplish against the Rams in Week 12. Even with Jones getting back to full health, the sophomore will still have upside as a FLEX play in the high-powered Aaron Rodgers-led offense.
Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon logged 20 carries for 69 yards in Sunday's 36-28 win over the Rams. He added five receptions for 21 yards and a touchdown. The 23-year-old led the Packers backfield in attempts and handled 20 of the team's 32 attempts in the Week 12 win. This season, Dillon has carved out a role in the offense and has been productive despite splitting carries with Aaron Jones. The Boston College product has rushed for 543 yards and two touchdowns while catching 27 passes for 261 yards and two scores over 12 games in 2021. Dillon is in the RB3/flex conversation against the Chicago Bears in Week 14, following the team's bye in Week 13.
Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon rushed for 53 yards on 11 attempts and caught all six targets in his first career start in the Week 11 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Aaron Jones (knee) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams. Dillon could get another start in Week 12 if the Packers rule out Jones ahead of Sunday's game. Green Bay does have a bye in Week 13; the team could be careful with Jones and rest him before heading into the bye week. Dillon has been efficient this season, rushing for 474 yards on 108 attempts and two touchdowns while catching 22-of-24 targets for 240 yards and a score over 11 games in 2021. The 23-year-old is mid-range RB2 if Jones is ruled out but becomes a flex option if the Packers starting RB is active.
Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon rushed for 53 yards on 11 carries and caught all six of his targets for 44 yards during Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The 23-year-old made his first NFL start in Week 11 with Aaron Jones (knee) ruled out. He racked up 97 total yards and averaged 4.8 yards per carry. The Packers trailed most of the game, which could explain why Dillon only received 11 carries. Dillon has now rushed for 474 yards and two touchdowns while catching 22 passes for 240 yards and a score over 11 games. Jones is expected to miss 1-to-2 weeks with an MCL sprain in his right knee; Dillon is a mid-range RB2 and will lead the Packers backfield once again in Week 12 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon will lead the team's backfield in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings while starter Aaron Jones (knee) is sidelined with a sprained MCL. 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. He will go up against a Vikings defense that allows 130 yards on the ground per game. With the increased role in the Packers backfield, Dillon is a surefire RB1, and fantasy managers can start the former second-round pick with confidence in Week 11.
Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon rushed for 66 yards on 21 attempts and two touchdowns while catching both of his targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 17-0 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Aaron Jones exited the game with a sprained MCL, and Dillon was terrific coming off the bench in Sunday's win. He racked 128 total yards and scored twice to lead Green Bay to victory. The 23-year-old hit paydirt for the first time this season and could be in line for a heavy workload if Jones were to miss any games. Dillon is on the flex radar but a high-upside RB2 if Jones cannot suit up Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon rushed 16 times for 78 yards in a Week 8 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Last Thursday, he logged 29-of-73 snaps (40%) and should see an uptick in carries with star QB Aaron Rodgers ruled out for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The 23-year-old has recorded double-digit carries three times in the last five contests. He's rushed for 309 yards on 68 attempts while catching 10 passes for 90 yards and a touchdown over eight games in 2021. Dillon will see an uptick in carries in a plus matchup against the Chiefs but is a boom-or-bust flex in Week 9.
Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon could have an expanded role in Week 8. The team will be without its top wide receivers Davante Adams and Allen Lazard for Thursday's showdown against the Arizona Cardinals. He had three carries for six yards and one reception for two yards in a Week 7 win over the Washington Football Team. He also lost his first fumble of the season in last Sunday's win. The 23-year-old could see an uptick in snaps as the Packers could lean heavily on the running game as they prepare to be without their top-two pass-catching options for Thursday's contest. Arizona has been stingy against the run and has allowed opposing RBs to find the end zone only once this season. Dillon is a boom-or-bust flex in deep-league formats for Week 8.
Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon had 59 yards off 11 attempts during the win over Chicago on Sunday. The sophomore was entering Week 6 and coming off one of the better performances of his career after he had 30 yards off eight carries while catching all four of his targets for 49 yards and a score during the narrow overtime win over Cincinnati in week 5. At the moment, he has the most value in deep PPR formats. However, if Aaron Jones were to succumb to an injury at some point moving forward, his fantasy stock would surely skyrocket in leagues of all types. Nonetheless, with Washington next on the itinerary, the 23-year-old could be a sneaky DFS option in Week 7, especially if the bout gets out of hand on the scoring end.
Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon carried the ball 15 times for 81 yards with 16 receiving yards in the team's 27-17 win over the Steelers. Both Dillon and teammate Aaron Jones enjoyed successful days against a potent Steelers defense and both running backs saw 15 carries in the game. This was a strong effort from the talented backup but fantasy teams should temper their expectations. Dillon could begin to see more touches moving forward but the unquestioned RB1 on the Packers remains Jones.
Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon will continue to serve as backup to teammate Aaron Jones Week 3 against the 49ers. Dillon is talented but is clearly the RB2 in the offense, especially after Jones exploded for four touchdowns last week. Green Bay will face a 49ers defense that currently is allowing the fourth most fantasy points to opposing running backs through the first two games. Dillon has a favorable matchup but will lack the touches to be considered fantasy viable for Week 3.
Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon carried the ball five times for 18 yards and added an eight-yard reception in the team's Week 2 win over the Lions. Dillon's RB2 role was considerably minimized with starting running back Aaron Jones racking up 115 total yards with four touchdowns. Dillon is a worthy fantasy stash but any hopes of a timeshare between Jones and Dillon should be officially set aside moving forward.
Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon should see more chances for success in Week 2 against the Lions. Dillon saw only four carries for 19 yards in the team's dismal offensive effort Week 1 against the Saints. But brighter days are ahead against a Lions defense that allowed the most fantasy points to opposing runners last season. Teammate Aaron Jones is the clear-cut RB1 in the team's offense but the coaching staff thinks Dillon can have some success as well. Despite the strong matchup, Dillon is not ready for starting lineups but needs to be rostered and stashed in all fantasy formats.
Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon will serve as the team's backup Week 1 against the Saints. Dillon is looking to fill the shoes of departed teammate Jamaal Williams and rookie Kylin Hill also may be in the mix. The Packers will face a Saints defense that was brutal on opposing runners last season, allowing the fewest fantasy point to the position. The Packers are expected to ride Aaron Jones most of the time out of the backfield and Dillon should see only a handful of carries as his handcuff. Dillon could be worth a roster spot as insurance in case of a Jones injury but is not fantasy viable in Week 1.
Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon is out to prove that he deserves to be the team's RB2 when camp breaks. After Jamaal Williams left the team in the offseason via free agency, the backup role behind Aaron Jones needs to be filled. Enter Dillon, a player that has running backs coach Ben Sirmans intrigued. "The biggest thing I've seen with him is just his overall knowledge of football. I think with him, he's one of those guys that there's a difference when you get to a game situation in comparison to practice. I think everything just turns up a little more for him. He knows and understands that Jamaal's not here anymore and there's going to be a heavier dependence on him to perform." Dillon should continue to see plenty of reps in the preseason.
Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon continues to impress the coaching staff as the team prepares for its second preseason game. Dillon is expected to become the RB2 behind Aaron Jones, who re-signed in the offseason. Dillon is a powerful back between the tackles but has improved his open-field speed. He also has shown an ability to catch the ball out of the backfield during training camp, further helping his chances for an increased role this season. Dillon will have to continue to produce in the preseason but he is in line for an increased role for the 2021 season.
Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon (calf) was held out of practice on Wednesday. Matt Schneidman reports that the injury is mostly precautionary, so it shouldn't be something that limits him when the regular season begins. Dillon has the No. 2 role locked up behind starter Aaron Jones, who has also missed some practice time with a hamstring injury. The sophomore will have an expanded role this season with the departure of Jamaal Williams and could be one of the most valuable handcuffs in fantasy football. When he was given the opportunity, the former Boston College standout showed he can be an effective player. In Week 16 last season, Dillon carried the ball 21 times for 124 yards and two touchdowns. Williams vacates 119 carries in the Green Bay offense, so there is a chance that Dillon could smash his current average draft position and potentially have standalone value. If Jones were to miss anytime, Dillon would be a strong fantasy RB2.
Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon took reps with the first-team offense on Monday with starter Aaron Jones (hamstring) sidelined. The injury to Jones appears to be minor but extra reps for Dillon is good news for the young tailback. With the departure of Jamaal Williams in the offseason, Dillon becomes the main handcuff in a potent Packers offense. Fantasy teams should not expect to see a lot of Jones in the preseason but Dillon could see plenty of run before Week 1.
Green Bay Packers second-year running back A.J. Dillon appears to be more comfortable in year two according to his backfield mate Aaron Jones. Jones also mentioned that Dillon "worked a lot on his hands during the off-season." Dillon's skillset will always be that of a power back at 6-foot 247 pounds, but improving as a receiver could allow him to play a bigger role than anticipated, especially after the departure of Jamaal Williams to the Detroit Lions in the offseason. Dillon is a player that should be monitored closely as camp progresses, and there's a real chance that he sees goal-line work in 2021 due to his size advantage. Right now Dillon projects as a high-end RB4, but he has RB3 upside behind Aaron Jones and RB1/2 upside if Aaron Jones were to go down with an injury at any point in the season.
Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon, a second-rounder last year, finished the regular season with just 46 carries for 242 yards (5.3 yards per carry) and two touchdowns while serving as the third back behind Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. He also missed five games with COVID-19 and played only 97 snaps (9.34 percent). But Dillon did rush the ball 21 times for 124 yards and both of his touchdowns on Dec. 27 against the Titans. Running backs coach Ben Sirmans said the team plans to lean on Dillon, who has looked much more comfortable in the offense, much more this year with Williams gone. Dillon isn't much of a pass-catcher, so expect him to see more early down work at the expense of Jones. If quarterback Aaron Rodgers sticks around, Dillon should have flex appeal in standard-scoring leagues with a bigger role this season.
Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said that rookie running back A.J. Dillon (quadriceps) "should be out there a little bit today" at practice. Meanwhile, offensive tackle Jared Veldheer remains in the COVID-19 protocols, while running back Tyler Ervin (foot) will not practice. Dillon's injury doesn't appear to be very serious, so he should have a good shot at suiting up on Sunday in the NFC Championship against the Buccaneers, but keep an eye on his practice status the rest of the week. If the 22-year-old is limited at all or is inactive, Jamaal Williams would take on a much bigger role as the backup behind lead-back Aaron Jones. Dillon carried the ball six times for 27 yards in the Divisional Round victory over the Rams last weekend.
Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said that the team will be careful with rookie running back A.J. Dillon (undisclosed), but he is hopeful that Dillon can play on Sunday against the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship game. Dillon left the fourth quarter of the win over the Rams in the Divisional Round on Saturday with an undisclosed injury. The 22-year-old ran the ball six times for 27 yards in the win over the Rams. Keep a close eye on his practice status throughout the week. If he's inactive against Tampa Bay, Jamaal Williams would be a much more attractive DFS sleeper behind Aaron Jones. Dillon dealt with injury and was on the COVID-19 list in his rookie season, but he could have a substantial role in Green Bay's backfield in 2021 if Jones leaves in free agency.
Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon carried the ball 21 times for a career-high 124 rushing yards and two touchdowns in a blowout win over the Titans. Dillon operated as the number-two back with Jamaal Williams (quad) inactive and proceeded to break out for the best performance of his young career. The 22-year-old also saw some additional run in the first half with Aaron Jones leaving due to injury, though the latter returned to the game. Dillon looked very impressive on his 33-yard touchdown run, breaking a couple of tackles en route to the end zone. His bruising running style appears suited to the weather conditions for this time of year, meaning this performance likely earned him more playing time. Dillon will take on a Bears Defense in Week 17 that has been pretty stingy against runners all year.
Green Bay Packers rookie running back A.J. Dillon said on his Twitter account that he's back at practice on Thursday after spending six weeks on the COVID-19 list. The second-round rookie out of Boston College last played in Week 8 against the Vikings when he had five carries for 21 yards rushing. Dillon's return is good news for Green Bay's backfield depth behind Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. While the rookie could take some touches away from Williams, his presence shouldn't really affect the high-end upside of Jones in the Packers offense. In seven games this season, Dillon has just 23 carries for 97 yards and has caught one pass for 16 yards. He's really only worth stashing on your bench in dynasty/keeper leagues.
Green Bay Packers running back Jamaal Williams was added to the team's injury report after it was determined he was a close contact with A.J. Dillon, who tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday. With the Packers on a short week, there's a lot of uncertainty at the running back position, especially if Aaron Jones (calf) is unable to return for Thursday's game. Of course, that also depends on that game taking place on Thursday still. If it does, the Packers may rely a lot on Tyler Ervin and Dexter Williams.

“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.”
