Why Aaron Jones is a Risky Pick

Examining the fantasy prospects for Aaron Jones in 2020

Aaron Jones finally shook free of Mike McCarthy in 2019, recorded 285 touches, and put up one heck of a season. He finished second at the running back position in PPR scoring and recorded 19 total touchdowns. But this is not likely to occur again in 2020. He faces too many hurdles to be selected near the top of drafts this year. The Packers brought in a powerful rookie running back, A.J. Dillon, and the backfield is now a three-headed monster even if Jones remains the lead back. The real issue for him, however, is that in games when Davante Adams was on the field, Jones took a huge hit to his receiving numbers. If he regresses in touchdown production as he should, and the receiving numbers are paltry with Adams on the field, then Jones is way too risky to be spending the pick required to land him this year following his big 2019.


Jones had an interesting season for the Packers last year. While he scored the second-most PPR points in the league behind only Christian McCaffrey, and the aforementioned 19 touchdowns (16 rushing, 3 receiving), his final line doesn’t tell the full story.
