Aaron Jones enters 2019 with a clear-cut role in the Packers offense, something he didn't have for most of 2018. Jones had 540 rushing yards and seven touchdowns in the Packers' final eight games last season despite barely getting 100 carries in that stretch. He should get more than 200 carries this season, which, considering his 5.5 yards per carry career average, should lead to a 1,000-yard season.
There's actually not a lot of downsides here. Jones is a powerful runner who catches the ball well. The only issue might be the fact he's not been asked to carry a heavy load in his first two seasons. How will he hold up to 200-plus carries in the NFL?
2019 Bottom Line
Jones is currently going late in the third round or early in the fourth round in drafts. That's way too low for a player with his talent. Take advantage of that. He could easily be a top-10 running back by season's end. He's a hard runner and also isn't bad catching the ball, as well. He had 20 catches for 165 yards and a touchdown in the second half of last season, as well.
