Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones said he wants to spend his entire career with the Packers. Jones' agent said the two sides have talked about a new contract and will continue to negotiate.
Huddle Up: Jones was one of the breakout fantasy players last season with 19 total touchdowns and over 1,500 total yards. He likely will have a similar role in 2020 and will be a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones scored a league-high 14 touchdowns inside the red zone in 2019.
Huddle Up: It's worth mentioning 25 of his 33 red zone carries occurred inside the 5. Jones fared very well on those eight longer attempts as he scored six times. All this is notable because it seems very likely he'll either share or lose a bulk of those 25 carries to 247-pound rookie A.J. Dillon this year. While Jones has very little chance of matching last year's 16 rushing touchdowns, he will remain the clear lead back in Green Bay and should be considered as a strong RB2 option.

Huddle Up: Jones is coming off a break-out season, rushing for over 1,000 yards and adding another 474 receiving yards. He doesn't come without risk in fantasy football, though. The team is deeper at the position than last year and Jones has made it a full 16 games just once. Regardless, he remains in RB1 conversations entering draft season.
