Dynasty Player Profile: A.J. Dillon (2022 Fantasy Football)

Dynasty Player Profile: A.J. Dillon (2022 Fantasy Football)

The key to winning at dynasty fantasy football is to identify and follow trends and patterns. There is a crystal clear indication that we are hurtling toward a third-year breakout for the one they call “Quadzilla”. The nimble behemoth in Green Bay is a business decision running on proverbial tree trunks. When the tundra at Lambeau Field freezes over, the Packers can bank on their 247-pound weapon to snap arm tackles like a machete through wispy vines. A.J. Dillon might be in a clear timeshare with Aaron Jones this season, but there are many reasons why that won’t matter in the lens of dynasty managers going forward.

Offensive Scheme

The departure of alpha receiver Davante Adams means it’s inevitable that Matt LaFleur will need to look to someone else for Aaron Rodgers to count on to move the chains and score in the red zone. LaFleur is a disciple of the Shanahan offensive coaching tree, thus it can be expected that more jumbo packages and exotic run-play packages are on the docket for 2022 and beyond. Dillon piled on over 200 touches last season with only a 45% opportunity share, per PlayerProfiler.com. Aaron Jones’ injury history has been increasingly extensive the last couple of seasons, leaving little doubt that Dillon’s prospects of earning more touches are pointing skyward.
