Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) participated in practice Saturday, Aug. 10.
Huddle Up: Jones is in line to become the Packers starting running back this season and should receive plenty of touches in games. He can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

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.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: It will be Jamaal Williams' backfield for the final two games of the season. He played well after taking over for Jones last week, managing 97 total yards and a touchdown on 16 touches. Add him off waivers if you're looking for an RB2 or flex for your championship squad.

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) will not return to the team's Week 15 game because of his knee injury.
Huddle Up: Owners should know more about Jones' status in the next day or two. Jamaal Williams will be the starting running back if Jones misses more time and could be a flex option for owners.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 15 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Jones will be able to return to the game. Jamaal Williams will receive a majority of the work at running back if Jones misses time and could be a flex option.

Huddle Up: Jones is the lead back for the Pack and he will look for a little bit better productions against the Atlanta Falcons and their leaky defense in Week 14.
