Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon carried the ball 21 times for 124 yards and two touchdowns in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans. He added one reception for five yards.
Huddle Up: Buried behind Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams for most of 2020, Dillon was the primary backup Sunday night with Williams inactive due to a quad injury. The rookie seized the moment, showing fresh legs and power in running over the Titans. In all, Dillon got almost twice as many touches as Jones. What his role will be in Week 17, however, will likely depend on Williams' status.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon could serve as the primary backup to RB Aaron Jones if RB Jamaal Williams (thigh) is inactive in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Dillon played five snaps in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers once Williams went down, running once for 18 yards. Head coach Matt LaFleur stuck primarily with the starter Jones, but said he trusts Dillon. Still, that doesn't say much for Dillon's fantasy appeal even if he is the No. 2.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon rushed twice for 14 yards in a 43-34 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1.
Huddle Up: The bruising rookie didn't have a role in the opener, but with Green Bay throwing early and often, it may not be a great gauge of what to expect from Dillon going forward. In the meantime, keep him stashed in case Aaron Jones or Jamaal Williams were to go down.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon is 'built to last,' according to general manager Brian Gutekunst.
Huddle Up: Dillon's quickest path to playing time is as a power back behind Aaron Jones, but he could work his way into a committee sooner rather than later. He is a RB5 candidate in redraft leagues and a solid asset in dynasty formats.

Green Bay Packers second-round pick RB AJ Dillon came to Green Bay in early May to begin working and studying the playbook.
Huddle Up: Dillon doesn't have a direct path to a lot of playing time with Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams ahead of him. However, the work ethic is there to make some noise quickly. Consider him an RB5 in fantasy for now.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon weighed 247 pounds last spring prior to his final year at Boston College and reportedly only had five percent body fat, according to former position coach Brian White.
'It's amazing, when you see him with his shirt off, he's got this little skinny waist and these huge shoulders, and these legs of tree trunks that are beyond anything you've ever seen,' White told Packers.com.
Huddle Up: The Packers have been ridiculed for the selection of Dillon for a number of reasons, but it's entirely possible general manager Brian Gutekunst and head coach Matt LaFleur see the rookie becoming a poor man's version of Derrick Henry - especially considering how well he tested athletically at the NFL Scouting Combine. Dillon may be limited to a change-of-pace back with goal-line duties in 2020, but there's enough here to consider him a high-upside second-round pick in rookie drafts.
