Extremely large back at 240/250 lbs. Moves extremely well for his size and is able to change direction relatively quick. Good contact balance due to his size and will often lower his shoulder and bounce off smaller defenders. Doesn't possess great lateral agility. Able to attack in a downfield scheme and move defenders due to his size, but will only be able to get what's blocked for him at the NFL level. Not overly shifty or quick. Doesn't possess great speed or agility measurables. Strong and tough though. Decent pass catcher out of the backfield. Good in pass protection, not great. Most likely a late round NFL draft pick who could be part of a rotation in a downhill scheme.

AJ Dillon could play major role if Aaron Jones can’t go in Week 7

When asked about rookie RB AJ Dillon possibly playing in place of the injured Aaron Jones on Sunday, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said the coaching staff has a “ton of confidence” in Dillon to do anything that would be asked of Jones.

Fantasy Impact

LaFleur did say that the team would give Jones up until game time prior to making a decision on if he can play in Week 7 against the Texans. Dillon is averaging 5.0 yards per carry on the season, and saw a season-high five carries last week on 16% of the snaps, which was also a season-high. It sounds like Dillon would likely take the Jones role if Jones were to miss Sunday’s game, while Jamaal Williams would continue to operate as the change-of-pace and third-down back for the Packers. Both Dillon and Williams could have sneaky flex appeal against a bad Texans run defense.
