A.J. Dillon should have a bigger role in Green Bay's backfield next year since Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are set to be free agents after this season. The Packers (12-3) already gave lucrative extensions to defensive tackle Kenny Clark and offensive tackle David Bakhtiari, so it's hard to imagine they'll be able to keep both Jones and Williams.
The story added Dillon could even see more time during the Packers playoff run, which could hurt the fantasy value of Jones and Williams, perhaps especially Williams who is dealing with an injury but has been the change of pace back to Jones most of this season. It seems like there is a good chance one of Jones or Williams will be playing somewhere else next season, giving Dillon a much bigger role in 2021 with the Pack.
GB RB A.J. Dillon - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Chicago
The second-round rookie finally got his chance to shine last week against the Tennessee Titans, as he carried the ball 21 times for 124 yards and two touchdowns. A surprising workload for Dillon working behind Aaron Jones, the rookie took full advantage of his carries doing his best Derrick Henry impression. Jones was able to finish the game, but walked away with a new hip injury, so Dillon just might carry the ball more than usual this week. Keep him pegged as a low-end RB2.
