Summary

In 2018, Aaron Jones proved that he deserves to be the Packers bell-cow back. Mike McCarthy never got the message though, as Jones averaged only 9.7 carries per game despite having the highest yards per carry (5.5 ypc) in NFL history among running backs with at least 200 carries. Jones finished the season with 729 rushing yards and eight touchdowns, while also catching 26 passes for 206 yards and one touchdown. He was the #24 running back in PPR scoring despite playing only 12 games. Simply put, Jones has the raw talent to be a superstar. He was given 10+ carries eight times in 2018, scoring touchdowns in seven of those games and averaging 19.3 fantasy points per game. Matt LaFleur has commented that Jones and Jamaal Williams will form a committee in 2019 while sharing running back duties. That may be the plan heading into the season, but if things shake out the way they did the last two years, LaFleur won't have the luxury of keeping Jones off the field. Jones is too dynamic a playmaker and while Williams may be versatile, he doesn't have the big play ability of his counterpart. Jones will be drafted as a #2 running back but has the upside to finish as a top 10 player. (May 3)
