Entering his second year, Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon is expected to be leaned on “a lot more this year” than last year, according to running backs coach (per Jason Wilde)
Fantasy Impact: Last year Dillon was behind both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams on the Packers depth chart. He finished 2020 with 242 yards and 2 touchdowns on 46 attempts. With Williams now in Detroit, Dillon is the Packers’ RB2 and an increased workload is expected. Given how explosive the Packers offense is, Dillon isn’t a bad player to pick at the backend of drafts, especially as insurance in case Jones misses any time.
