Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones rushed 13 times for 39 yards and caught one pass for no gain in a 10-3 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 1.
Huddle Up: The Packers couldn't muster much offense against the Bears in general, but on the plus side, Jones dominated the backfield touches. He looks like the back to own in Green Bay.

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (undisclosed) returned against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Sept. 5.
Huddle Up: Whatever was bothering him appears to have been a minor issue. He has the highest upside of Green Bay's backs, but consistency is likely to remain an issue.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (undisclosed) is being checked out by trainers on the sidelines during the Week 1 game against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Sept. 5.
Huddle Up: If Jones does have to miss any time, Jamaal Williams would likely handle a bulk of the carries and become a solid flex option.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 1. The team did not practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Jones likely will receive most of the playing time at running back against the Chicago Bears. He should be a starting option on all fantasy leagues this week.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) is out of practice for the second straight day Thursday, Aug. 1.
Huddle Up: Jones is expected to see the lion's share of the work, and Jamaal Williams (hamstring) is also banged up. Jones is on the edge of the RB2-RB3 area, and he should stay there as long as the injury doesn't linger.

Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur is preparing to get the
team's running backs more involved in the passing game in 2019.
'Oh, I love it when we can get them the ball in the passing
game,' LaFleur said to end minicamp earlier in June. 'That's just
one more eligible (receiver) the defense has to focus on. When
you talk about getting five guys out into a concept, it just
opens up more space inside typically.'
Huddle Up: The Pack's top two backs, Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams,
combined for only 76 targets and 53 receptions last season, so
look for those numbers to rise and Jones and Williams to get a
bump or two in the PPR running back ranks.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones is capable of being an every-down back if he is able to improve his conditioning, according to general manager Brian Gutekunst.
Huddle Up: Jones is expected to share playing time with Jamaal Williams this season, which likely will hurt his fantasy value. He can be considered a No. 3 running back in some leagues but likely will not be a weekly starting option.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones led the league with his average of 5.5 rushing yards per attempt during the regular season. 'I've always felt like I've belonged in the conversation as one of the top backs,' Jones said Friday, Feb. 1, in an interview with NFL Network.
Huddle Up: Due to suspension and injury, Jones was limited to 12 games played, but he found his way into the end zone in seven of them and displayed the big-play ability that the Packers need to complement Aaron Rodgers. He's certainly on the high-end RB2 radar for next season.
