2024 PPR Draft Rankings

Josh Jacobs Note

Well, if you had worries about Josh Jacobs following up his nearly 400-touch season in 2022 with a dud last year, your fears were validated. Jacobs was limited to 13 games played (quad strain in Week 13) and looked like someone sucked out his tackle-breaking ability with a straw when he was active. Jacobs wasn't the same guy who, in 2022, ranked 18th in yards per touch, 13th in yards created per touch, and second in evaded tackles. Last season, Jacobs had the 12th-highest stuff rate while also crawling in at 37th in missed tackles forced per attempt and 44th in yards after contact per attempt (per Fantasy Points Data). He enters the Green Bay Packers' depth chart as the clear and unquestioned RB1 with Aaron Jones gone and A.J. Dillon unlikely to return. Jacobs could be this season's Rachaad White. A back who has an elite role while producing mediocre tackle-breaking stats en route to an RB1 season.

AJ Dillon Note

The Packers have brought back A.J. Dillon to back up Josh Jacobs. Sadly, Dillon could see a reduced role in 2024 if Jacobs can bounce back and stay healthy. Dillon has declined to a lowly change-of-pace grinder. Last year, he was only 48th in yards per touch, 51st in breakaway run rate, and 54th in juke rate. He had four games last year in which he played at least 60% of the snaps; only once did he surpass 80 total yards, and he finished outside the top 30 running backs twice in weekly scoring (RB33, RB69). Dillon is a low-end handcuff in 2024.
