  • Packers' AJ Dillon: Modest performance in loss

    Dillon rushed 15 times for 55 yards and caught his only target for eight yards in Sunday's 25-24 loss to the Falcons.

    Dillon started with Aaron Jones (hamstring) sidelined but only turned in a mediocre performance. The big-bodied tailback's long rush was for just eight yards and he made minimal contribution in the passing game. Along with averaging merely 2.6 yards per carry this season, Dillon has now gone six straight games without topping 4.0 yards per rush dating back to last season. He will likely return to his backup role if Jones is cleared to play in Week 3 versus the Saints.

  • Packers' AJ Dillon: Poised for lead role Sunday

    Dillon is slated to step in as the Packers' lead option out of the backfield Sunday against the Falcons with Aaron Jones (hamstring) listed as questionable for the contest but not expected to play, Bill Huber of reports.

    After tweaking his hamstring on a 35-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown in the Packers' Week 1 win over the Bears, Jones failed to practice in any fashion Wednesday through Friday and is poised to sit out the Week 2 contest. Dillon worked behind Jones in the win in Chicago, mustering just 19 yards on 13 carries while adding two catches for 17 yards on three targets. Despite the poor showing against the Bears, Dillon has been a more respectable performer over his four-year career, averaging 4.2 yards per carry and 8.4 yards per reception. He should have a path to getting 15-plus touches Week 2, potentially making him a useful No. 2 running back or flex option for fantasy managers. Dillon could find more open running room in Atlanta than he did in Chicago since the Falcons will be without one of their top tacklers in middle linebacker Troy Andersen (concussion), who was been ruled out for Sunday's game.

  • Packers' AJ Dillon: Paces Packers in touches

    Dillon rushed 13 times for 19 yards and caught two of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Bears.

    Dillon led Green Bay in touches after running mate Aaron Jones exited during the third quarter with a tweaked hamstring. Despite his workload, Dillon failed to make much of an impact, with his contribution paling in comparison to Jones' 127 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns on 11 touches. Depending on Jones' status, Dillon could be promoted to the Packers' starting tailback position in Week 2 versus the Falcons.
