Packers' AJ Dillon: Remains in COVID-19 protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt LaFleur said Wednesday that Dillon (illness) has returned to the Packers' facility but continues to work his way through the NFL's COVID-19 protocol, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Dillon is more than three weeks removed from testing positive for the virus, missing three games as a result. There's no telling when he'll be cleared to resume regular activities, or when his conditioning will be sufficient enough for him to be considered ready for game action. That said, LaFleur believes Dillon "can contribute a lot" once he does get activated. Until then, Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams will continue to get the bulk of the backfield reps for Green Bay.

Packers' AJ Dillon: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after testing positive for the virus, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Dillon won't be able to play Thursday against the 49ers. Aaron Jones (calf) may be available, but Jamaal Williams is the only running back that's currently healthy for Week 9. Dillon will have to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols before returning to team activities.

Packers' AJ Dillon: Limited workload again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon carried the ball five times for 21 yards and caught his only target for 16 yards in Sunday's 28-22 loss to the Vikings.

The 37 scrimmage yards were a career high for the rookie, but for the second straight game Dillon's touches were limited while working behind Jamaal Williams, even with Aaron Jones (calf) sidelined. If Jones is able to return to action in Week 9, Dillon's role could shrink even further.

Packers' AJ Dillon: Only five touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon carried the ball five times for 11 yards in Week 7 against the Texans.

Dillon was expected to get greater opportunity in the absence of Aaron Jones (calf). However, he was out-touched by Jamaal Williams 24-5 and managed just 11 total yards. Given that Jones' absence is expected to be brief, it's likely that Dillon missed the opportunity to command a bigger workload in the offense, at least for the time being. He and the Packers will take on the Vikings in Week 8.

Packers' AJ Dillon: Increased workload likely Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon is slated to serve as the Packers' No. 2 running back behind Jamaal Williams with Aaron Jones (calf) sidelined Sunday in Houston, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

So far this season, Jones has averaged 18.6 touches per game, leaving a significant workload up for grabs. Williams himself boasts 9.2 touches per game and has the most experience among those available out of the backfield, so he's the better bet to lead the unit. Still, the Packers invested a second-round pick in April's draft in Dillon, and he's responded with 13 carries for 65 yards through five contests. Look for Dillon at least to spell Williams and perhaps be featured on a handful of possessions Sunday, with practice squad callup Dexter Williams on hand to pick up the scraps.

Packers' AJ Dillon: Could handle expanded role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt LaFleur said he's confident Dillon can step up if Aaron Jones (calf) isn't able to play in Sunday's game against Houston, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Jamaal Williams has seen far more work than Dillon this year, but it is possible the Packers could lean on the rookie as their lead ballcarrier, with Williams then handling more of the receiving work. Of course, we still need to see how things play out with Jones, who appears to be headed for a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. Williams would be the safer fantasy play in the event of a Jones absence, but Dillon would also offer some upside.

Packers' AJ Dillon: Averages 6.2 yards per carry
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon carried five times for 31 yards in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Buccaneers.

Dillon averaged an impressive 6.2 yards per carry as Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams both struggled, with the majority of his production coming on a 20-yard rumble in the fourth quarter. The rookie's impressive cameo nearly doubled his season rushing output and could earn him another look as a change-of-pace option in the coming weeks. Dillon will look to build off the best effort of his young career next Sunday against the Texans.

Packers' AJ Dillon: Continues playing bit role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon had one carry for three yards in Monday's victory over the Falcons.

Dillon got a chance to run the ball after not taking even one carry in Week 3, but his role remained minimal, as he was on the field for just three plays on offense. It's possible the Packers could get him more involved coming out of their Week 5 bye, but with fellow backs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams both getting the job done there just aren't many snaps up for grabs.

Packers' AJ Dillon: No action in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon did not take the field for an offensive snap in Sunday's 37-30 victory over the Saints.

Dillon had five carries late in a Week 2 blowout after recording two totes in his first game as a pro, but he did not get even one chance to run the ball Sunday with the Packers relying solely on their three veteran backs. He still has some long-term intrigue, but as things stand he's merely extra depth in the Packers backfield.

Packers' AJ Dillon: Gets five carries late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon had five carries for 17 yards in Sunday's victory over the Lions.

Dillon did not take a snap on offense until late in Sunday's game, but the Packers gave him a chance to stretch his legs on their final couple drives, and he ended up with three more carries than he totaled Week 1. Dillon is a distant fourth among Packers running backs in snaps played through two weeks, but he has made the most of his opportunities, averaging a respectable 4.4 YPC on his first seven rushing attempts as a pro.

Packers' AJ Dillon: Two totes in pro debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon had two carries for 14 yards in Sunday's victory over the Vikings.

Dillon played only a bit role in Week 1, finishing fourth among Packers running backs with five snaps. However, he showed well on his limited opportunities, racking up six and eight yards on his two rushes. Dillon finds himself in a crowded backfield in Green Bay, but he was taken in the second round of April's draft, so look for the team to try and get him more involved as the season wears on.

Packers' AJ Dillon: Listed co-third on depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon is listed third, along with Tyler Ervin, on the unofficial depth chart released by the Packers on Monday night.

Dillon was drafted in the second round of April's draft, but it comes as little surprise that he does not occupy a prominent spot on the depth chart heading into Week 1, as both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams remain on the Packers' roster. Dillon is not likely to be much of a factor in the offense early on, but he is the most powerful of the team's four running backs, so he could be used in short-yardage situations. His role could certainly expand during the season as he gets more familiar with his surroundings, and at just shy of 250 pounds, Dillon will not be much fun to try and bring down when winter weather rolls around.

Packers' AJ Dillon: Inks rookie deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon announced Wednesday via his personal Twitter account that he signed his four-year rookie contract with the Packers.

The earliest running back picked by Green Bay since 2013 (Eddie Lacy, 61st overall), Dillon was a curious selection at No. 62 in this April's draft, considering the backfield already is populated by Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. The rookie out of Boston College may be viewed as a potential successor for Jones, who could become a free agent after the 2020 season and may be seeking a big payday after tying for the league lead with 19 touchdowns in 2019. Dillon himself brings a different dimension to the Packers' ground game. Listed at 247 pounds with 4.53 speed, he's a decent bet to earn snaps in short-yardage and perhaps even goal-line situations as a rookie after reeling off three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons in college.
