Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon (chest) exited the Divisional Round matchup against the San Francisco 49ers Saturday, Jan. 22, and is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: If Dillon is unable to return, Aaron Jones should be a busy man for the remainder of the game.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon had 14 carries, 63 yards and 2 TDs against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Jan. 2. He also caught two passes for 20 yards.
Huddle Up: When the Packers drafted Dillon, these were the kind of nights they envisioned as the 247-pound back played the hammer and Minnesota's defenders the nails. The second-year back now has over 1,000 total yards and 7 TDs on the season, though what his role will be in a meaningless Week 18 visit to Detroit is unclear. Monitor the situation before deciding whether to start Dillon or not.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon rushed nine times for 41 yards vs. the Cleveland Browns in Week 16 on Saturday, Dec. 25. He added 15 yards on three receptions, catching each of his targets.
Huddle Up: Dillon totaled 53 rushing yards and 44 receiving yards for 15.7 PPR points in the Week 11 absence of RB Aaron Jones vs. Minnesota, Green Bay's Week 17 incoming opponent. Dillon is a low-end flex flier for a TD but offers little without a trip into the end zone.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon rushed seven times for 22 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the Baltimore Ravens while adding a reception for 13 yards on his lone target.
Huddle Up: Dillon saw his fewest touches since Oct. 24 against the Washington Football Team, as Aaron Jones is back and the top dog in the backfield again.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon carried the ball 15 times for 71 yards against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Dillon got 15 carries on SNF compared to just five for Aaron Jones, though Dillon was not involved in the passing game -- he totaled 17 receptions in the previous four games. He also came off the field just in time to watch Jones punch it in from the 3-yard line. Right now, touchdowns are the only thing holding Dillon back, making him more of an RB3.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon had 20 carries for 69 yards against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Nov. 28. He also had five receptions for 21 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Even with Aaron Jones back it was Dillon that got most of the work since his bruising, between-the-tackles style was a better fit against a physical Rams front. He continues to impress as a pass catcher as well, and after the game head coach Matt LaFleur called Jones and Dillon a 1A/1B situation. He's a borderline RB2/RB3 for fantasy purposes right now, and it'd be hard to justify keeping him on the bench going forward.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon rushed 11 times for 53 yards and caught all six of his targets for 44 yards in a 34-31 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Dillon had a solid showing in place of the injured Aaron Jones, delivering efficient results on the ground and playing a role in the passing game. If Jones remains sidelined, Dillon should be a solid RB2.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon rushed 21 times for 66 yards and two touchdowns in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks, shouldering the load once RB Aaron Jones went down with a knee injury in the second half. Dillon also added two grabs for 62 yards on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Dillon could be leaned upon as the top tailback in Minnesota heading into Week 11 assuming Jones is forced to miss time. He should be a sneaky RB2 in seasonal leagues and DFS if he shoulders the load next week.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon rushed eight times for 46 yards in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs, and he added four receptions for 44 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Dillon has totaled double-digit touches in back-to-back games, and five of the past six outings. He has emerged as a useful RB4 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, and he has the potential to be a must-start option if anything ever happens to Aaron Jones. The Packers host the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon carried the ball 16 times for 78 yards in a Week 8 win over the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: With the Packers missing their top three receivers there was an expanded focus on running the football, and Dillon was the beneficiary as he punished the Cardinals on his 16 carries for a healthy average of 4.9 yards per rush. His absence around the goal line seems mystifying given his size, but perhaps that's an adjustment that'll be made as the season wears on. With all three WRs likely to be back in Week 9, Dillon is best viewed as a flex candidate.
