Jones' usage has been fairly predictable this season not counting a Week 1 blowout loss to the Saints where the Packers held the ball infrequently and sent starters to the bench early. Since Week 2, Jones has had 13-17 carries and 2-6 catches every week. He's the RB6 in fantasy scoring and the RB5 if you take away Week 1. That dependable usage and a favorable home matchup with Washington make him a high-end RB1. He's also a core cash-game pillar at a price of $7,500 on DraftKings. The Packers have ramped up Dillon's usage in recent weeks. He's played at least 33% of the Packers' offensive snaps in each of the last three weeks, averaging 11.3 carries over that span. Against a mediocre Washington run defense that's yielding 21.7 fantasy points per game to opposing RBs, Dillon checks in as a playable midrange RB3 in a bye-strewn week.
