Draft note
by John Paulsen
In 2021, Jones finished 21st in touches per game (14.9) but finished 17th in points per game (13.5). He averaged 3.5 receptions per game last season, but that number may spike since Davante Adams is no longer in the fold. Since 2018, in the seven games that Adams missed, Jones’ usage rose to 19.5 touches, including 5.1 receptions per game. We’ll probably see more formations featuring both Jones and A.J. Dillon, with Jones lined up as a receiver. He’s a threat for 70 catches and 700 yards receiving, and he’ll continue to see 10-12 carries a game.

GB RB Aaron Jones - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Minnesota Vikings
In spite of a knee injury that has demanded weekly practice management and a second-year budding star nipping at his heels, Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones has still been incredible for fantasy football. Since the Pack's Week 13 bye week, Jones' workload has increased with each game, going from eight opportunities to 15, then to 18 just last week. In that three-week span, Jones has averaged 15.1 half-PPR fantasy points per game thanks in part to the scoring prowess of the Green Bay offense, but also due to his integral involvement in the passing game (almost four targets per game).

For Week 17, our models are somewhat cautious with Jones due to his few and sundry risk factors, but we still project him as a low-end fantasy football RB1 with major upside. One thing working in Jones' favor is the fact that the opposing Minnesota Vikings allow the ninth-most schedule-adjusted fantasy points (aFPA) to running backs. Fire Jones up with confidence for the fantasy finals.
