Packers RB Aaron Jones could still lead backfield even if Ty Montgomery returns

ESPN - [Full Article]

While Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he's unsure of Ty Montgomery's status for the team's Week 6 showdown versus the Vikings, Rob Demovsky of ESPN believes Aaron Jones might be the team's starting running back even if Montgomery is cleared to play.

Fantasy Impact: 

Jones played splendidly in relief of Montgomery last week, carrying the ball 19 times for 125 yards and a touchdown, finishing as the No. 4 RB in both standard and PPR leagues. Until we have definitive word on Montgomery's status, it's best to treat Jones as the No. 1 back in Green Bay. We currently have him ranked as our No. 13 RB in standard leagues and he's our No. 22 back in PPR leagues in what our aFPA metrics consider a difficult matchup on the road in Minnesota.
