Packers RB Aaron Jones Suspended Two Games

Tuesday, July 3, 2018, 4:18pm

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones has been suspended for the first two games of the 2018 NFL regular season for violating the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. Jones will be eligible to return in Week 3 when Green Bay faces Washington.

Related Players: Jamaal Williams, Ty Montgomery

Fantasy Impact:

With Jones out of the picture for the first two weeks, Green Bay’s three-man backfield is down to two. Jamaal Williams figures to start, but Ty Montgomery will likely come in on passing downs and could overtake Williams with a strong camp. Montgomery is the better runner, but Williams is solid between the tackles and in pass protection.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Aaron Jones was the most productive of Green Bay's bevy of backs last season in terms of running the ball, posting two 100-yard games late in the season and averaging 5.5 yards per carry.

Fantasy Downside

Jones is suspended for the first two games of the season and is part of a crowded backfield. He also doesn't catch the ball particularly well—or at least not as well as Jamaal Williams or Ty Montgomery, the two players with which he's competing for playing time. That's a big part of this offense.

2018 Bottom Line

If Jones hadn't gotten himself suspended, he might be the frontrunner for carries, at least on first and second downs. He had two 100-yard games last season despite never topping 17 carries in a game. Jones has the best big-play ability of the Green Bay backs, so he'll likely have some kind of role. But this looks like a messy running back by committee. Jones is going in rounds 9–11, which might be a little high for a situation with little clarity.
