Jones missed Week 11 with an MCL sprain but got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He remains out of the Week 12 rankings for now, but if he plays, he'll slot in as a midrange RB2 against a solid Rams run defense. With Jones out last week, the Packers were pass-heavy, but Dillon still had a solid day with 11-53-0 rushing and 6-44-0 receiving. His usage in the passing game has been a pleasant surprise, and Dillon displayed his talent in that phase of the game with an artful grab of a high Aaron Rodgers throw last week. Dillon will be a back-end RB1 if Jones doesn't play, a lower-end RB2 if Jones is active.

AJ Dillon rushes for 53 yards and catches six passes as Packers lose

Green Bay RB A.J. Dillon rushed 11 times for 53 yards and caught all six of his targets for 44 yards as the Packers lost 31-34 to the Vikings in Week 11.

Fantasy Impact

This was a game where regardless of who the RB was for the Packers they were never going to have a big day on the ground as Green Bay played catch up for the majority of the afternoon. Dillon should still be viewed as a direct replacement for Aaron Jones and has a very similar floor and ceiling for fantasy purposes as seen today. Fantasy managers should continue to start Dillon while Jones is out as the young RB still has high PPR upside and will only be slowed down if the Packers are in a negative game script. Week 12 offers a matchup vs the Rams that should be high scoring on paper and as long as the game remains close look for Dillon to deliver fantasy success.
