  • Packers' AJ Dillon: Modest workload in Week 4 loss

    Dillon rushed five times for 11 yards and failed to bring in his only target in the Packers' 34-20 loss to the Lions on Thursday night.

    Dillon's backfield mate Aaron Jones returned from a two-game absence due to a hamstring injury, but the two players actually logged the same amount of carries. The real culprit in the sparse overall usage for Green Bay's ground attack was the big first-half deficit the Packers found themselves in, and the fact they were never able to whittle a 24-point halftime deficit to less than 10 at any time in the second half. Dillon will likely return to his normal complementary role alongside a presumably healthy Jones during a Week 5 road matchup against the Raiders on Monday night, Oct. 9.

  • Packers' AJ Dillon: Jones returns Thursday

    Dillon will be joined by Aaron Jones (hamstring) in the Packers backfield Thursday versus the Lions.

    Dillon has operated as Green Bay's No. 1 running back the last two games, but he hasn't been very productive, compiling 26 carries for 88 yards (3.4 YPC) and an eight-yard catch. Even if Jones can't handle his typical workload, his mere presence may hinder Dillon's potential to produce. In the one contest that Jones was available this season, though, Dillon earned two rushes inside the five-yard line Week 1 in Chicago, so any short-yardage reps could yield fantasy utlity Thursday.

  • Packers' AJ Dillon: Quiet in comeback

    Dillon rushed 11 times for 33 yards in Sunday's 18-17 win over the Saints.

    Dillon again started while teammate Aaron Jones (hamstring) was sidelined. Although he had a long rush of 14 yards, overall it was another underwhelming outing for Dillon. In fact, quarterback Jordan Love led the Packers in rushing yards (39) and scored with a one-yard keeper. Without any targets in the passing game, either, Dillon's performance did little to alleviate Jones' absence, which could come to an end in the Week 4 Thursday night matchup versus the Lions. Should that transpire, Dillon would likely return to being Green Bay's second option at tailback.

  • Packers' AJ Dillon: Likely to replace Jones again

    Dillon is expected to serve as the Packers' lead back in Sunday's game against the Saints with Aaron Jones (hamstring) inactive for the second contest in a row, Rob Demovsky of reports.

    Jones closed Week 3 prep with two straight limited practices and was listed as questionable heading into Sunday, but he ultimately didn't make enough progress in his recovery from the hamstring injury he sustained in the season-opening win over the Bears to gain clearance to play. As a result, Dillon should be in line for another starting nod, with Emanuel Wilson and Patrick Taylor available as depth options behind him. In the Packers' Week 2 loss to Atlanta while Jones was sidelined, Dillon played 68 percent of the offensive snaps and carried 15 times for 55 yards to go with an eight-yard reception on his lone target.

  • Packers' AJ Dillon: Modest performance in loss

    Dillon rushed 15 times for 55 yards and caught his only target for eight yards in Sunday's 25-24 loss to the Falcons.

    Dillon started with Aaron Jones (hamstring) sidelined but only turned in a mediocre performance. The big-bodied tailback's long rush was for just eight yards and he made minimal contribution in the passing game. Along with averaging merely 2.6 yards per carry this season, Dillon has now gone six straight games without topping 4.0 yards per rush dating back to last season. He will likely return to his backup role if Jones is cleared to play in Week 3 versus the Saints.

  • Packers' AJ Dillon: Poised for lead role Sunday

    Dillon is slated to step in as the Packers' lead option out of the backfield Sunday against the Falcons with Aaron Jones (hamstring) listed as questionable for the contest but not expected to play, Bill Huber of reports.

    After tweaking his hamstring on a 35-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown in the Packers' Week 1 win over the Bears, Jones failed to practice in any fashion Wednesday through Friday and is poised to sit out the Week 2 contest. Dillon worked behind Jones in the win in Chicago, mustering just 19 yards on 13 carries while adding two catches for 17 yards on three targets. Despite the poor showing against the Bears, Dillon has been a more respectable performer over his four-year career, averaging 4.2 yards per carry and 8.4 yards per reception. He should have a path to getting 15-plus touches Week 2, potentially making him a useful No. 2 running back or flex option for fantasy managers. Dillon could find more open running room in Atlanta than he did in Chicago since the Falcons will be without one of their top tacklers in middle linebacker Troy Andersen (concussion), who was been ruled out for Sunday's game.
