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.

Green Bay Packers rookie RB AJ Dillon had 845 carries during his college career, but the team isn't concerned. 'His structure, he's built to last,' said Green Bay's Northeast region scout Mike Owen. 'I'm good to go, as healthy as can be. I've had a lot of carries but it goes to show how I can handle the workload. I can be the workhorse. Everybody can know the ball is coming to me and I'll crank out the yards,' Dillon said. While Dillon had just 21 receptions over his past two seasons, he showed route-running and pass-catching ability at the NFL combine. Dillon wasn't just a pick for the future, per Owen. 'His body type and running style differ from both (Aaron) Jones' and (Jamaal) Williams', and his size could pay dividends in the cold or other bad-weather games ... I think he'll be a great complement to Aaron Jones and Jamaal. He can take this running game to the next level,' Owen added.
Huddle Up: The Packers have a crowded backfield entering 2020, so it may be tough for Dillon to find consistent touches early. He has better value in deeper leagues or dynasty formats.
