After sitting out Week 11 with a knee injury, Aaron Jones is considered a game-time decision in Week 12, which impacts A.J. Dillon fantasy football managers as well.
Dillon filled in as the starter in Week 11 for Jones, carrying the ball 11 times for 53 yards in a Packers loss to the Vikings. That came after a breakout performance in Week 10 with 21 carries and two touchdowns.
Jones carried the ball just seven times for 25 yards before suffering the knee injury against the Seahawks in Week 10.
Jones practiced all week, but Green Bay could be looking ahead to the bye week after Sunday’s game against the Rams. If Jones sits, the bye week would allow two additional weeks to recover.
Fantasy managers will need to pay attention all the way up until kick-off to decide how to handle the backfield.
Let’s turn to The Action Network’s consensus fantasy football rankings to see where the running backs stack up.
A.J. Dillon & Aaron Jones Fantasy Football Rankings
Dillon is the higher-ranked running back in the hours before kickoff. He comes in as RB21, but if Jones is confirmed out, that number could change.
Jones is RB36 in standard scoring leagues. However, don’t assume Jones will shoot up to RB1 status if he’s active. Other factors will come into play, including how much activity he’s expected to get.
As always, the bets solution is to check our rankings after official rosters are announced and the rankings get updated before the game begins.
For now, Dillon looks like the guy.
