There was some optimism for Aaron Jones as he was heading into free agency that he could land in a situation that would make him a fantasy football superstar. However, he decided to re-sign with the Green Bay Packers, which certainly makes our job for projecting him a bit easier. AJ Dillon should see some more involvement this year, but without Jamaal Williams in town to take away some of the receiving work out of the backfield, Jones could see even more work than he has before. With Dillon's size, he's certainly a threat to take away some carries at the goal line, but Jones' efficiency metrics in the Red Zone should keep him at bay. All that to say, Jones certainly isn't going to push for a top-5 ranking like he could have if he had landed somewhere else this off-season, but he's still one of the most reliable fantasy running backs out there. Draft him with confidence in 2021. My Very Early Projection: 221-1149-10 rushing & 46-376-2 receivingEkeler fell short of expectations last season, but missing several games will do that. When he was on the field, Ekeler was still an incredibly relevant fantasy option that displayed his receiving prowess time and time again. Since 2017, he ranks 4th in the NFL in total receiving yards and he's tied for first over that time span with 16 receiving touchdowns. There's very little reason to doubt Ekeler heading into this season and he should be back in the low-end RB1/high-end RB2 conversation in Half PPR formats. Additionally, he does receive a slight bump up in Full PPR formats. You know exactly what you're going to get from him each and every week and that's invaluable in fantasy football.

Well, Rodgers is back, that's the good news. However, 2nd year RB A.J. Dillon lurks as a goal line vulture. Dillon is a 247 lb. wrecking ball. You'd have to figure the Packers pull Jones at the goal line unless they opt for a field goal. Too soon? Sorry I couldn't resist haha! Jones is going too high for me. Too risky. Pass.Joe Lombardi takes over the offensive coordinator duties. He came over from New Orleans with the coaching change. That could be good news for Ekeler. Lombardi likes a lot of quick passes. He used Alvin Kamara a lot out of the backfield. If he uses Ekeler the same way, fantasy owners will be ecstatic. Ekeler is best used in a RBBC. He's not big enough to hold up with a full workload. Still though, he is an excellent receiver. In half point and full point PPR formats, this might be the perfect storm for Ekeler to return to fantasy glory in 2021. The question is Ekeler more like Alvin Kamara or Darren Sproles. My best guess is Sproles which makes him a risky pick in the early rounds.

Jones has gone two straight seasons of at least 1,400 scrimmage yards and 11 total TDs. Green Bay made no significant upgrades at WR in the offseason, and with Jamaal Williams gone, Jones should see even more volume as a receiver. He's logged at least 47 receptions in two straight seasons but could make that 50 for the first time in 2021.It's tough for me not to rank Ekeler even higher, but I'll temper expectations a little bit simply due to the talent of the four other backs ranked ahead of him. Ekeler scored just three touchdowns in 2020, the lowest mark of his career despite logging his second-most touches (170). He scored 11 times in 2019, and it's reasonable to expect positive touchdown regression in 2021. Ekeler's biggest asset is his pass-catching ability. He's secured 146 receptions over his last 26 games, good for 5.6 per contest, or 89.8 over a 16-game season.

Returning to GB without Williams is ideal. Should see most passing game work of career with featured role in 2020s highest scoring attack. RB2 and RB5 past two seasons, no reason to expect much different. Especially with Rodgers backHuge line improvements with Linsley and NOW Slater at OT too, should be Round 2 steal with Top-5 overall upside -- just be wary of coaches preaching an RBBC appraoch.

I do an article every year highlighting which players performed better than expected based on where their touches took place, as well as how many carries/targets they receive. Aaron Jones has finished No. 7, No. 4, No. 4, and No. 16 over the last four years on that list, which highlights just how good he is. During that time, he's scored 143.4 more fantasy points than the average running back would've. Him and Alvin Kamara are much more similar than most realize. You take proven production at the top of drafts, and Jones has proven it time-and-time again. If Aaron Rodgers doesn't ever show up to the Packers, he does lose a bit of his touchdown upside, though.In eight full games with Justin Herbert under center last year, Ekeler saw 63 targets. Over a full 16-game season, that amounts to 126 targets. While I don't expect him to get there, he's one of just two running backs (Christian McCaffrey is the other) who I'm projecting for 100-plus targets in 2021. Targets are worth twice as much as carries, so even if Ekeler winds up getting just 12 carries per game, it's not the end of the world. In fact, he can still finish as a borderline RB1 if he were to hit just 200 carries on the season. The new coaching staff obviously brings on some potential volatility, but there's not much other talent on the roster at running back, so his role should be very safe.

The Draft Zone
Expect him to handle 60%+ of attempts and see an uptick in targets taking over the 2 minute offense, as he did last yr when Jamaal Williams out. He could flirt with 100 targets this year and should have around 230 carries.Ekeler not getting goal line carries should not be news. In 2019, Ekeler had 7 carries inside the 5, scoring only twice. Ekeler also scored 11 total TDs that year and finished as the PPR RB4.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Top 5 RB each of past 2 seasons won't likely see many more carries with AJ Dillon picking up most of those vacated by J. Williams, but he could very well catch 60+ passesFilling the Kamara role for new OC Joe Lombardi, a healthy Ekeler could push his previous receptions career high (92)
Derek Lofland

Jones was fifth among fantasy backs with 235.4 and he shocked the world by resigning with the Green Bay Packers. He should continue to be a RB1 in their explosive offense, provided Aaron Rodgers is behind center.Ekeler battled some injuries, but still had 138.3 fantasy points in just 10 games. He should be a RB1 playing with Justin Herbert, if Ekeler can stay healthy.

 This time last year we were anticipating Ekeler to have some struggles as a pass-catcher due to Tyord Taylor entering the season as the Chargers' starting QB. We know what happened next, and now Ekeler's arrow is pointing up in a big way, particularly in full PPR formats. Once he returned from his midseason injury, Ekeler averaged 6.2 catches per games and 90.2 yards per games from Weeks 12-17. Offensive line upgrades combined with a potential Year 2 Justin Herbert leap gives Ekeler a thrilling floor/ceiling combo for 2021 fantasy football leagues.

 Austin Ekeler is your classic PPR running back. He's in line for a ton of receptions and all purpose yardage with the Chargers this year. However, TDs are not his strong suit. Ekeler found te end zone just 3 times in 10 games last year. In auction leagues, Ekeler is the poor man's Alvin Kamara. In standard leagues, yards are yards, but his lack of goal line work could hold back his overall value. Still, he's a low end RB1 in all formats.

If Aaron Rodgers is the QB, there is no reason to believe that Aaron Jones will not continue to dominate in both fantasy and real football. But that is a big "if."
