Aaron Jones leads Packers in rushing with 41 yards

Aaron Jones finished Monday's 33-30 win over the 49ers with eight carries for 41 yards. He came up just short of the end zone on his first carry which was initially ruled a TD but replay put him out at the one. He was subsequently stuffed for a loss on the next carry before Aaron Rodgers tossed a TD pass to end the drive.

Fantasy Impact

Jones looked poised for a big game as the starting RB on the opening series and almost finding the end zone. However, with the Packers falling behind, Jones finished with just eight carries. He did lead the team in carries and rushing yards. Jones should continue to be the lead back when the Packers come out of their Week 7 bye.

Aaron Jones nets 59 total yards versus Lions

Aaron Jones led the Packers with seven carries for 40 yards on the ground and added two receptions for 19 yards on three targets during the Packers 31-23 loss.

Fantasy Impact

The Packers split up the 17 carries between their trio of RBs in Week 5 as they fall behind early and didn't get an opportunity for any of the RBs to get a hot hand. Jones continues to look like the best back braking tackles and exploding through holes. He has tallied at least 40 rushing yards in each of his first three games and has averaged 6.1 YPC. Jones and the Packers could have a more positive game script for the running game in Week 6 with the 49ers coming to Lambeau.

Aaron Jones rushes for team-high 65 yards in Week 4

Aaron Jones had 11 carries for 65 yards to lead the team during the 22-0 victory over the Bills in Week 5. Jones also scored on a three-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter and has one catch for 17 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Solid all-around game for Jones, who eluded defenders to make something out of nothing on numerous occasions. He outgained Jamaal Williams 65-27 on the ground despite getting an equal number of carries. Jones is clearly the more explosive back in the Packers backfield and should be the best fantasy option going forward.

Aaron Jones provides spark to Packers running game

Aaron Jones led the Packers in rushing yards with 42 on just six carries to average 7.0 YPC. He caught his only target gaining five yards during the 31-17 loss to the Redskins.

Fantasy Impact

While coach Mike McCarthy said he considered Jones a "secondary" option coming into his first game off suspension, Jones ended up leading the team in carries and rushing yards. Jones has an obvious burst in comparison to Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery and could see his role grow in the coming weeks. If he is somehow still on your waiver wire, scoop him up.

Aaron Jones will play limited role in Week 3

Aaron Jones, who has been activated to the roster following his two-game suspension, will play a secondary role behind Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery according to coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Impact

It might take a couple of weeks or an injury for Jones to work his way into any significant playing time in the Packers backfield. He is probably the most explosive back in Green Bay but will have to wait his turn for now. Jones is still worth stashing on the bench in fantasy leagues.
