Coming in as the heaviest running back in the league, AJ Dillon was expected to take over a great role when rumors about Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones both leaving were swirling. The Packers caused a lot of head-scratching when they selected Dillon with a second-round pick in the 2020 draft. Well, Jamaal Williams signed with Detriot, and the Packers re-signed Aaron Jones, leaving Dillon as the secondary back on the team, but behind a much better back than anticipated. Had the backfield just been Williams and Dillon, the latter would have been an exhilarating fantasy prospect. Now, with $48M invested in Jones, Dillon's role isn't quite as clear. In games that Jones is starting, he could be used in short-yardage and goalline situations, giving him a dangerously low floor. We saw him get the bulk of the carries in one game last season. Against the Titans, in the only game where he saw more than 50% of the team's snaps, he carried the ball 21 times for 124 yards and two touchdowns, showing his natural ability as a strong runner. Compared to Jones's 5'9” and 208lb frame, these backs couldn't be more different. Jones is elusive, a great route-runner, and agile. AJ Dillon is a bruiser with little agility and high-end breakaway speed. These two can work symbiotically in a backfield where both of their strengths can be highlighted, but Dillon could end up in a touchdown-dependent role that makes him risky to rely on in fantasy.
