It's anyone's guess how the Green Bay backfield will break down, particularly in light of the injury to Aaron Rodgers. The Saints allow the 11th-most fantasy points to opposing running backs, but they are much more vulnerable to pass-catching backs, which suggests that Ty Montgomery may have more success than Jones this week. On the other hand, the Packers surely want to establish a ground game to ease the burden on Brett Hundley, so Jones should still see a fairly healthy dose of carries. In the end, Jones is a risky Flex play, unless we get more definitive word as to how Mike McCarthy plans to attack the Saints.

Aaron Jones churns out 41 yards on the ground in Week 6

Aaron Jones ran the ball 13 times for 41 yards while snagging just one of his four targets for another yard in Green Bay's Week 6 loss to Minnesota.

Fantasy Impact

Jones didn't get the start with Ty Montgomery returning from injury, but the two backs essentially rotated every series. Jones also got the ball 14 times compared to Montgomery's 11, and did more with those touches, going for 42 yards while Montgomery managed just 31. Neither back was very inspiring in Week 6, with Aaron Rodgers out and no longer threatening to pass. A shift to a more rush-focused attack is inevitable and expect Jones to be the main beneficiary of that shift.
