Father Time comes calling for all of us. The hope for Aaron Jones is that he can keep him at bay for one more year. Last season, Jones objectively wasn't healthy until the end of the season. Luckily for him, when he was healthy, we got to see that Jones has plenty left in the tank to consider reinvesting in him in fantasy for one more season. In Weeks 15-20, Jones averaged 21.6 touches and 120.3 total yards as he was a weekly stud. During that same stretch, among 47 qualifying backs, he was eighth in explosive run rate and 10th in yards after contact per attempt (per Fantasy Points Data). Jones should lead the Vikings backfield in 2024 as an RB2 with RB1 upside if he can stay healthy.

Aaron Jones to sign one-year contract with Vikings

Aaron Jones will sign a one-year, $7 million contract with Minnesota when the new league year opens up.

Fantasy Impact

Jones coming to Minnesota hurts the potential breakout of Ty Chandler, who was talked up by coaches during the 2024 combine. Jones addition doesn’t put Minnesota out of the running for adding depth via the draft, but he does give them a nice veteran option who still shows some explosiveness compared to a running back class that is largely lackluster.
