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 receiving

Aaron Jones re-signs with Packers for 4 years, $48M

RB Aaron Jones and the Green Bay Packers have agreed to a four-year, $48M extension.

Fantasy Impact

Just moments before the announcement, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported the Packers were pushing hard to re-sign Jones. Per his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, Jones gets a $13M signing bonus. His return to Green Bay certainly lowers the value of 2nd-year running back AJ Dillon, whom dynasty fantasy managers in particular had high hopes for if Jones were to leave in free agency. In any case, Jones is back with the Packers for another four years, which will make him 30 years old at the end of his newest contract extension.
