Draft note
by John Paulsen
Jones finished 2019 as the No. 2 fantasy back, but he’s the 13th back off the board in early drafts. The disconnect probably stems from the Packers’ (ponderous) decision to draft A.J. Dillon in the second round. Jones has the second-highest YPC of all running backs with at least 300 carries since 2017 and is a major threat in the passing game. He has the third-most rushing touchdowns of any running back in the same span, and after 16 rushing touchdowns last year, it’s an area where he may experience some regression, especially if the Packers use Dillon around the goal line.

GB RB Aaron Jones - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Houston

Much like everyone else on the Green Bay offense last week, Jones had his worst performance of the season as he ran the ball 10 times for 15 yards and one touchdown. Jones also caught three passes for 26 yards in a game where the Green Bay offensive line was clearly overwhelmed by the Tampa Bay defense. Jones was fortunate to salvage his fantasy day with his short touchdown, but it’s a good sign when Jones’ floor in PPR leagues is 13 points.

Jones moves ahead to Houston this week who is ranked last in aFPA to RBs this season and fresh off a torching by Tennessee’s Derrick Henry as he ran for 212 yards and two touchdowns as well as 52 receiving yards. The Texans defense is one of the worst in the league and there is no better situation for Jones to have a rebound game than in this one. Expect Jones to settle back into his elite RB1 production in this game.

* Update: keep an eye on Aaron Jones' status, as he's listed as questionable with a calf injury.
