Drafters were expecting A.J. Dillon to carve out a formidable role in the Packers backfield in 2022, but he was a complete afterthough for the majority of the season. His highly-touted "red-zone role" resulted in one touchdown (Week 1) in the first 11 weeks in a struggling Green Bay offense. Dillon eventually got more involved in the second half of the season, especially as a red-zone threat. From Week 9 onward, Dillon out-carried teammate Aaron Jones inside the 10-yard line 14 to 5 while splitting snaps exactly 50/50. And they scored the same amount of points total from Week 11 through Week 17, with Dillion scoring six rushing TDs. If Dillon's goal-line usage carries over from the tail-end of the 2022 season, that would significantly hinder Jones' fantasy upside while stabilizing Dillon's fantasy value. The bruising running back finished fifth in PFF rushing grade last season and will hit free agency at the end of the 2023 season. He also flashed top-tier handcuff upside when Jones got banged up versus the Bears in Week 13. Dillon tied a season-high with 18 carries for 93 yards and one touchdown to go along with three catches for 26 yards.

AJ Dillon scores in fifth straight game in Week 17

AJ Dillon ran for a two-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter of the 41-17 win over the Vikings. He finished with 12 carries for 41 yards and was unable to reel in his only target.

Fantasy Impact

Dillon has been a force down the stretch as he extended his touchdown streak to five games. He has posted modest yardage numbers but continues to be fantasy relevant while he is being utilized near the goal line. Dillon is worth starting in Week 18 against the Lions.
