Jones rushed the ball 14 times for 99 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' divisional-round win over the Rams on Saturday. He added one reception for 14 yards. Jones began the second half with a 60-yard run and ultimately capped the same drive with a one-yard touchdown plunge. He was held under wraps for the most part otherwise, with his only other significant rushes going for 11 and eight yards. Even so, he topped 100 total yards third time in his last four games -- spanning back to the regular season. He'll draw a tough matchup in the NFC Championship Game, when the Packers will take on either the Buccaneers or Saints.
Jones rushed 11 times for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-16 win over the Bears. He also caught four of five targets for 43 yards. Jones' production was evenly split between the ground and the air as he again displayed his versatility while topping 80 scrimmage yards. The tailback's 11th touchdown of the campaign, however, came on the ground when Jones rushed in from four yards to give the Packers a commanding lead late in the fourth quarter. By helping Green Bay secure the top seed in the NFC, Jones will now get a week off before taking the field in the divisional round of the playoffs.
Jones rushed 10 times for 94 yards and caught two passes for 14 more yards in Sunday's 40-14 win over Tennessee. Jones had an incredibly efficient game, averaging a whopping 9.4 yards per carry, which is shockingly the second time he has averaged over nine yards per tote this season (9.3 YPC in Week 2). While that kind of effectiveness should warrant celebration from his fantasy managers, it actually left them wanting more after seeing backup AJ Dillon go off for 124 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries. While the lopsided score explains why the backup received twice as many carries as Jones, it is worth noting that one of Dillon's scores came on the Packers' second drive of the contest. Head coach Matt LaFleur stuck with his usual backfield timeshare even with Jamaal Williams (quad) sitting this one out, and then Dillon took on a larger workload in the second half once the game was put well out of reach. The light workload should have Jones well-rested for an important seeding matchup against the Bears on Sunday.
Jones (toe) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Tennessee, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. Jamaal Williams, on the other hand, is listed as doubtful, still bothered by the quadriceps injury that knocked him out of last week's win over Carolina. Jones ended up playing 90 percent of offensive snaps in that game, piling up 158 total yards and a TD on 23 touches. He should be in for another large workload this week, though it's possible the Packers give rookie AJ Dillon a bit more work.
Jones (toe) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Jones' reps were capped for the second day in a row after he picked up a toe injury in the Packers' Week 15 win over the Panthers. Fortunately for Jones and his fantasy managers, the running back relayed earlier Thursday that despite his limitations, he's "feeling good" and "ready to go" for Sunday's showdown with the Titans, according to Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. If Jones can increase his activity in Friday's practice, he should approach the team's Week 16 contest without a designation.
