A.J. Dillon been the epitome of efficiency since entering the NFL. He is PFF's fifth-highest-graded running back (90.1).

A.J. Dillon started to emerge from his protege's shadow with 187 rushing attempts, 803 rushing yards, and an RB29 fantasy points per game finish last year. Dillon isn't the home run threat that Jones is (43rd in breakaway run rate), but he can still punish an opposing defense. He was 17th in yards created per touch in 14th in yards after contact per attempt (minimum 100 carries, per PFF), immediately behind Jones. Unless Jones succumbs to injury, Dillon is likely stuck in a 1B role with a healthy red-zone role.

Dillon had a fantastic year with 1,049 yards from scrimmage and 7 touchdowns playing behind Aaron Jones. This should continue to be one of the best offenses in the NFL and Dillon will be a solid standalone flex, even with Aaron Jones also back in 2022.
