Jones will be suspended for the first two games of the 2018 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Summary

Update: (July 3rd 2018) Jones was suspended for two games by the NFL for violating the substance abuse policy. He was arrested for speeding and admitted to smoking marijuana last year. The suspension will put him further behind Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery in the battle for the Packers starting running back spot. Of the Packers three running backs, Aaron Jones was by far the best runner, and it wasn't close. While Williams (3.6 ypc) and Montgomery (3.8 ypc) both averaged under four yards per carry, Jones averaged 5.5 yards per carry, rushing for 448 yards on 81 carries with four touchdowns. He also chipped in nine catches on 18 targets for 22 yards. Jones also brings an explosiveness to the Packers backfield that Montgomery and Williams lack. He had six runs of 20+ yards last season, tied for 11th in the NFL, and he did so on only 81 carries. Many Packers fans will remember Jones beating the Bucs in overtime when he scored a long touchdown on his first touch of the game. Jones did run into some trouble last season when he was arrested for speeding and admitted to smoking marijuana, so there is still the possibility that he could be suspended by the NFL and/or the Packers. Regardless, he has the talent and skillset to play an important role for the Packers this season. (July 16)

Packers | Aaron Jones to emerge as starter? (Wed Jul 18, 12:48 AM) - Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones will end up as the team's starting running back this season in the opinion of USA Today Network Wisconsin's Stu Courtney.

Our View: Fantasy GMs are cautious when it comes to projecting the starter for the Packers in 2018. Jamaal Williams has the highest ADP of their group (RB36, 7.11) but Jones is close behind him at RB41 (9.01) in 12-team PPR leagues. Behind those two is Ty Montgomery, sitting at RB43 (9.07) as of right now. We'll see this battle shake out during training camp with each back bringing a unique skill set to the competition. Williams is the banger while Montgomery is the better receiver. Jones is arguably the best all-purpose back of the group. Stay tuned.
