Jones will be joined by a new running back in 2020 after the Packers selected AJ Dillon in the second round of this year's draft.
The Packers' running back room was in good shape heading into both the draft and the 2020 season, as it contained Jones and Jamaal Williams, who combined for over 2,200 yards from scrimmage and 25 touchdowns in 2019. However, both players will be free agents in 2021, so Dillon was added to provide some long-term security at the position. Dillon is a power back, so he will be more of a threat to Williams' opportunities than Jones', and Jones -- who accounted for over 1,500 yards and 19 scores himself last year -- still figures to be the Packers' primary running back in any games that are played in 2020. That will remain the case should he sign an extension with Green Bay, but with Dillon on board, the Packers could be less inclined to shell out big bucks for Jones next offseason.
Jones rushed 12 times for 56 yards and a touchdown and brought in all five targets for 27 yards and another score during the Packers' 37-20 loss to the 49ers in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
Jones' rushing yardage total paced the Packers for the evening, and he was able to find the end zone on a nine-yard grab and a one-yard rush in the third and fourth quarter, respectively. The two-score tally was a fitting complement to a stellar regular season for Jones, one that saw him rush for a career-high 1,084 yards and 16 touchdowns while adding a 49-474-3 line through the air. Jones will look to put together an even bigger season in 2020 in anticipation of going into unrestricted free agency ahead of the 2021 campaign.
Jones carried 21 times for 62 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 28-23 divisional-round win over the Seahawks. He also caught one of two targets for four yards.
Jones' yardage output was lacking on an evening when he averaged just 3.0 yards per carry while doing next to nothing as a receiver. He salvaged his performance from a fantasy perspective with a pair of one-yard touchdown runs in the second quarter. Jones finished the regular season with three 100-yard games in his last four, so his struggles to produce efficiently came as a bit of a surprise. Things won't get any easier in next week's NFC Championship Game against a 49ers team that just shut down the Vikings' Dalvin Cook, and that's been one of the stingiest teams against the run all season.
Jones carried the ball 25 times for 100 yards in the team's Week 17 win over Detroit. He added two receptions for 43 yards.
Jones gained 10 yards or more on three separate carries, recording at least 100 rushing yards for the fifth time this season. By racking up 439 rushing yards in the last four games of the regular season, Jones also surpassed 1,000 yards on the ground for the first time in his career. Jones will be entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2020 and figures to once again lead the backfield with Jamaal Williams working closely behind him.
Jones rushed 23 times for 154 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' 23-10 win over the Vikings on Monday night. He also brought in two of three targets for six yards and lost a fumble.
Jones tore through the normally stingy Vikings run defense, and he put an exclamation point on the division-clinching victory for the Packers with a 56-yard scoring scamper up the left sideline with 5:51 remaining in the contest. That was preceded by a 12-yard touchdown rush late in the third quarter that erased a 10-9 deficit. Jones has run for 130 or more yards in two of his last three games, and he'll look to wrap the regular season up in similarly spectacular fashion at the expense of the Lions in Week 17.
Jones carried 13 times for 51 yards and tallied two touchdowns during Sunday's 21-13 win over the Bears.
Jones was bottled up for the most part, averaging just 3.9 yards per carry against a stout Bears front. He also curiously wasn't targeted in the passing game but salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective with a pair of touchdown runs in the third quarter to break the game open. Although Jones' yardage totals have varied dramatically of late, he's supported his fantasy value with six touchdowns over his last four games to give him 15 for the season. He'll face another tough matchup next Monday against the Vikings, but his chances of getting into the end zone make him a worthy fantasy play.
Jones rushed 16 times for 134 yards and a touchdown and brought in six of seven targets for 58 yards in the Packers' 20-15 win over the Redskins on Sunday.
After multiple lackluster weeks, Jones proved capable of exploiting a weak Redskins run defense to compile a season-high rushing yardage total. Jones also continued to make his presence felt in the passing game, also pacing the team in receiving yardage and logging over five targets for the seventh time on the campaign. Jones will look to put together back-to-back strong efforts in a Week 15 divisional battle against the Bears.
While Jones hasn't appeared on the Packers' Week 14 injury report, he dealt with some "sharp ankle pain" during this past Sunday's 31-13 win against the Giants, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Jones spent some time on the sideline Sunday but noted Thursday that the discomfort dissipated by the end of the contest. He even underwent an MRI earlier this week, which revealed no cause for concern. Meanwhile, fellow running back Jamaal Williams was limited at Thursday's practice due to a knee issue. If Williams has to take a step back this Sunday versus the Redskins, Jones could serve in more of a bell-cow role out of the Packers' backfield.
Jones ran for 18 yards on 11 carries and added 13 yards on four catches during Sunday's 31-13 win over the Giants.
The wintery elements made Jones an intriguing play Sunday, but the sophomore back still managed to tally less than 40 total yards for the third time in his last four contests. For much of the season, fans could excuse some poor yardage tallies thanks to some big touchdown totals, but Jones has now been held scoreless in three of his last four games. Fellow back Jamaal Williams hasn't been significantly better, but he has averaged 4.4 yards per carry over the past four games to Jones' 3.9. Therefore, don't be surprised if Williams gets a few more opportunities against Washington's mediocre run defense Sunday.
Jones rushed 13 times for 38 yards and did not have a reception in Sunday's 37-8 loss to San Francisco.
The 49ers schemed a near-perfect gameplan against the Packers, stuffing Jones on the ground while limiting Aaron Rodgers to just 104 passing yards. Fantasy owners may have become accustomed to the 24-year-old's inconsistencies on the ground this season, as his fantasy point totals seem to be either monstrous or minuscule. Luckily for Jones and his owners, the Packers will have two very fantasy-friendly matchups against the Giants and the Redskins on tap, creating great bounceback potential for the offense as a whole.
Jones carried 13 times for 93 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 24-16 win over the Panthers.
Jones averaged an impressive 7.2 yards per carry while repeatedly gashing the Carolina run defense. He curiously wasn't targeted in the passing game but made up for that with his fourth multi-touchdown game of the season. Jones now has 14 total touchdowns on the season, tying him with Christian McCaffrey for the most in the NFL. He will face a difficult matchup in Week 12 against the 49ers after the upcoming bye.
Jones carried the ball eight times for 30 yards and caught one of four targets for minus-1 yard in Sunday's 26-11 loss to the Chargers.
The Packers' offense got shut out in the first half and didn't have much more success after halftime, and as a result, Jones wound up with arguably his worst performance of the season. He should find more running room in Week 10 against a Panthers defense that just surrendered two TDs, one rushing and one receiving, to Derrick Henry.
Jones (shoulder) put in a full practice Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chargers, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Jones was a limited participant in the Packers' first two practices of Week 9, but there never seemed to be much overwhelming concern about his availability to play Sunday. Expect Jones to serve in his usual capacity as the Packers' lead running back, though he could see his involvement in the passing game scaled back a little bit if top wideout Davante Adams (toe) -- who is being viewed as a game-time decision -- is cleared to play after a four-week absence.
Jones (shoulder) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Jones missed a handful of snaps on offense during a Week 8 win at Kansas City due to a shoulder injury, which now has impacted his practice reps for a second straight session. He'll aim for an uncapped showing Friday as the Packers ramp up for another visit to an AFC West opponent (Sunday against the Chargers in L.A.).
Jones (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated injury report, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
In the midst of his spectacular performance last Sunday at Kansas City, Jones left the contest to have his shoulder examined, an issue that's still a bother at the start of Week 9 prep. Jones, the NFL's leader in touchdowns with 11 at the midpoint of the season, will attempt to get back to full participation by week's end with an eye toward Sunday's game versus the Chargers.
Jones (shoulder) rushed 13 times for 67 yards and caught seven passes (on eight targets) for 159 yards and two receiving touchdowns in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Chiefs.
Jones had to leave the contest with a shoulder injury at the tail end of the first half, but he was able to return after halftime and went on to post one of the better receiving lines from a running back we've seen this season. The 24-year-old did most of his damage on a pair of wheel routes out of the backfield where he and Aaron Rodgers exposed man coverage on a lone linebacker. Jones has made significant strides as a receiver this season, nearly doubling his aerial output from last season in four fewer games. The third-year back has seen his rushing production take a hit, averaging 4.1 yards per carry after gaining notice in fantasy circles with a 5.5 average over his first two seasons. Jones remains the preferred back in Green Bay over Jamaal Williams, and heads into a soft matchup against the Chargers next Sunday.
Jones (shoulder) was able to return to Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Jones got injured in the first half but was able to retake the field after halftime. Fantasy owners relying on the 24-year-old running back can breathe a huge sigh of relief.
Jones is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Kansas City due to a shoulder injury.
Jones had been carving up Kansas City's defense prior to exiting, with 94 scrimmage yards and a receiving touchdown in the first half, in addition to another would-be touchdown that was overturned on replay. Jamaal Williams -- who also has a touchdown already -- should step into the lead-back role with Jones on the mend.
Jones ran for 50 yards on 12 carries and added 33 yards and a touchdown on four catches during Sunday's 42-24 win over Oakland.
Jones struck first during Sunday's offensive explosion, cutting upfield on a wheel route early in the first quarter and twisting around just in time for the 21-yard touchdown. The UTEP product has now scored at least once in five of seven games and recaptured the lead-back role after taking a backseat to Jamaal Williams in Week 6. How the Packers use the backs will likely vary week to week, but Jones has gotten more touches in four of the six games in which they have both played and is becoming more efficient with the ball in his hands, averaging 4.9 yards per carry over the past three weeks after 3.3-yards-per-carry average during the first four games of 2019.
Jones rushed 11 times for 47 yards but lost a fumble in Monday night's 23-22 win over the Lions. He also caught four of his seven targets for 13 yards.
Jones came crashing back to earth after his four-touchdown performance in Week 5. Not only did he cough the ball up on Green Bay's second offensive series, but he then dropped a wide-open, 33-yard touchdown on the next one. After that blunder, he gave way to Jamaal Williams, who capped that drive with a five-yard TD catch. While Jones would re-enter the game and produce decent results, it was Williams who wound up stealing the show, finishing with 14 rushes for 104 yards and four catches for 32 yards and the aforementioned touchdown. On the back of a disappointing display by his standards, Jones will aim for improvement in Week 7 versus the Raiders, but it wouldn't be surprising if the second-string Williams earns himself some extra touches following Monday's success.
