Don’t Call It a Committee: Aaron Jones is Your Lead Back in Green Bay

Reports this offseason have been that the plan in Green Bay is to go with a running back by committee approach for next season. As someone who has shares of Aaron Jones in every dynasty league, this news doesn’t exactly make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. New head coach Matt LaFleur said he believes a committee is the most effective approach, while GM Brian Gutekunst says he wants Jones on the field as much as possible. Helpful, I know. Jones is the more explosive and talented running back, so rest assured this will be his backfield.After starting the season off suspended for two games, Aaron Jones slowly took back his role as the starter. Week eight saw Jones take the reins and dominate the role in the backfield, taking 12 carries to Jamaal Williams four. He added two receptions while Williams had zero. Ty Montgomery had two carries and saw only two targets. He would fumble on a late kick return and would then be traded to the Baltimore Ravens less than a week later. With Montgomery gone Jones was able to start taking over the backfield, and it looked like he was heading toward his first 1,000 yard season until he went down with an MCL injury for the second year in a row.
