Depth Chart
Jones, the former 5th round pick from UTEP has simply been one of the most explosive running backs in the league the last two years. He's averaged 5.5 yards-per-carry in his two seasons, leading all running backs in the NFL last year in that category. With speed to burn, and a year of development behind him, Jones ascended to the lead back role with the Packers last season, even showing up more as a receiver as the season wore on. Now more than ever Green Bay realizes that Jones gives the offense a dimension in the running game that must be respected, and with Matt LaFleur already talking about getting his running backs more involved in the passing game (something Mike McCarthy flat out failed to do), Jones might be ready to ascend into a higher tier of fantasy back.

Jones led the team in rushing yardage and rushing touchdowns last season, finally getting some distance on fellow back Jamaal Williams, but there remain some roadblocks to Jones becoming fantasy football's next big thing. The first, is durability. Remember, you can't score from the trainer's room, and Jones has had his fair share of lower leg injuries the first few years in the league. Hamstring and knee injuries cost him 4 games last year, and with such a reliance on speed and quick twitch muscles, soft tissue injuries are a major concern. As a side note, word is he's gotten in much better shape this offseason. Second, is the presence of Williams. Williams isn't going anywhere, and will likely command more work than typical back-ups. LaFleur used both Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis often last year, (at least until Henry went on a ridiculous tear in the last month of the season) and ran the ball 51% of the time. Jones doesn't quite have the frame to hold up to 200 carries, so Williams will be involved.

The bottom line here is that Jones is dripping with talent and upside. He'll never see 8-man fronts, and has a coach that uses a zone run scheme that fits his talents perfectly. With an uptick in receptions, and better health and stamina, Jones has a shot to get into RB1 territory, which would be a steal at his current ADP.

Packers want to use RBs more often in passing game
Green Bay's backfield ranked 24th in receptions in 2018
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 27, 7:00 pm

Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers HC Matt LaFleur intends on getting his running backs more involved in the passing game after they finished with 72 catches in 2018. "I love it when we can give (running backs) the ball in the passing game," LaFleur said. "That's one more eligible that the defense really has to focus on." (Packers.com)

FFToday's Take: Former HC Mike McCarthy's offenses rarely made it a point to get his backs overly involved in the passing game despite almost always having a player who was more than capable in that role. Jamaal Williams has established himself as a viable threat in the passing game, but there's reason to believe Aaron Jones will eventually take over the backfield. He showed progress as a receiver last year, and it sounds like he should expect a bump up from his 26 catches in 12 games a season ago.
