Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers
Jones returned from a two-game suspension Sunday against the Washington Redskins, and he finished with 42 yards on six carries along with one catch for five yards. It was a three-man committee, but Jamal Williams and Ty Montgomery combined for 45 yards on nine carries.
Jones produced well when he got big workloads last year, averaging 5.6 yards per carry when he got double-digit carries in four straight games before a knee injury limited him.
It was easy to predict Jones would be eased into action in his season debut, and an early deficit pushed the Packers into comeback mode as Montgomery had six receptions in the game. But Jones is clearly going to be a huge factor in the Green Bay backfield mix, and as long as Aaron Rodgers is playing even a portion of a carry split is a fantasy relevant role.
