Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon rushes 11 times for 59 yards in Week 6 against the Chicago Bears and he was not targeted in the pass game.
Huddle Up: Dillon has averaged 13.0 touches per game across the past three, giving him some value in deeper fantasy leagues. But as long as Aaron Jones remains healthy, that's as useful as Dillon is going to get. The Packers host Washington in Week 7.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon ran 15 times for 81 yards in a Week 4 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Dillon also had one reception for 16 yards.
Huddle Up: Sunday was probably the dream scenario for Green Bay's backfield with Jones turning 18 touches into 99 yards and Dillon gaining 97 yards on his 16. His physical style wore down the Steelers in the second half, and he likely would've topped 100 yards on the ground if the Packers had continued to simply pound the ball with a 17-point lead. This one game shouldn't win Dillon a spot in your lineup, but it's a reminder of why he's worth owning in most formats.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon had six carries for 18 yards against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Sept. 26. Dillon added two receptions for eight yards.
Huddle Up: Dillon moved into Jamaal Williams' RB2 role for the Packers this season but has yet to distinguish himself, managing just 78 total yards over the first three games. He's still worth carrying on rosters in most formats, but he should remain benched until he gets more work.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon rushed five times for 18 yards in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions and he added one reception for eight yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Dillon is only a player worth monitoring at this point. Unless something happens to Aaron Jones to force him out of the lineup, Dillon's fantasy ceiling is quite limited. However, if Dillon gets the opportunity to serve as the workhorse, he could be a nice fantasy surprise.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon believes he is ready for a larger role in the offense in his second season. 'You can see he's a lot more comfortable,' RB Aaron Jones said. 'He has the playbook down, and he's just ready to go out there and fly around. I'm excited to suit up with him.'
Huddle Up: Jones was given a big contract this offseason, so while he may be hyping up his backfield mate, there is a good chance that Jones will receive a bulk of the touches. For his part, Dillon will be a priority handcuff to open the year.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon could be the starting running back for the Packers next season if impending free-agent RBs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are not re-signed this offseason.
Huddle Up: Dillon rushed for 242 yards and two touchdowns in limited playing time this season but would be a big part of the offense if Jones and Williams leave. Dillon would be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy running back if he takes over the starting job.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon (quad) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Dillon left Green Bay's Divisional Round win in the fourth quarter after taking a hit to his quad and did not return, so it's a good sign for his availability this weekend that he begins the week with some on-field work. The matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is not a great one, however. The rookie should see some snaps as Green Bay is making good on its promise to cycle through all three of its running backs, but he figures to be a poor bet for more than six or eight touches unless Aaron Jones or Jamaal Williams get hurt.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon (thigh) is expected to practice at some point this week, but head coach Matt LaFleur is 'still waiting to see' whether or not he'll be ready to play in the NFC Championship game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
'We'll see where he's at. We've been off the last two days, so I have not seen him. We'll kind of play it through and we'll see where he's at, but we're hopeful that he'll be ready to go,' LaFleur said Monday, Jan. 18.

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.
