Jones led the Packers’ backfield for a long stretch before spraining his MCL. Through his first two seasons, in the 12 games where he has garnered at least 10 carries, Jones has averaged 95 total yards and 1.0 touchdown on 16.5 touches per game. He was also getting more involved as a receiver as the 2018 season wore on, catching 18 passes in his final five full games. That’s a 58-catch full-season pace, and he showed major improvement in pass protection as well. He has earned the right to be in the driver’s seat to be Green Bay’s RB1 in 2019, though HC Matt LaFleur indicated that he would like to utilize a committee of Jones and Jamaal Williams.
