Week 2 has arrived! Unfortunately, the injury watch for fantasy managers is also here.

Aaron Jones (hamstring) is questionable for Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Jones suffered a hamstring injury during Week 1’s blowout win over the Bears and will be questionable for Week 2 because of it. He’s been absent from multiple practices this week, and the team wants to be careful with his recovery and not rush him back. He was an elite fantasy option when he was on the field last week, but AJ Dillon may have to be the lead RB in this backfield if the team opts to sit Jones against Atlanta.

What the Experts Are Saying
Comments suggest a mild severity hamstring strain, but not practicing all week makes Jones likely to miss Week 2. Pending progress next week, lean towards return Week 3. Upon return, upper tier RBs like Jones tend to see only a mild performance hit, but do have 10-15% elevated re-injury risk.
