Can there be standalone for AJ Dillon as well? Yes, possibly. There’s a good chance he sees 30-40% of snaps alongside Aaron Jones, but the big question is whether he sees work in the pass game. Jones has seemed to have locked in his goal line role, despite the comparison in statures.
Regardless, Dillon is the type of back you hold on your bench all year in case Jones gets hurt, regardless of whether you have Jones rostered. With Jamaal Williams gone, it’ll be Dillon’s backfield if that scenario were to play out.
Dillon wasn’t involved much in the pass game, so I’m a bit surprised they didn’t go after someone like Damien Williams or James White. It takes a lot for coaches to trust a rookie RB on passing downs.
Dillon will get close to 20 touches/game on a great offense if Jones were to go down, and with the Packers likely leading in games, he has a chance to rack up some serious workloads to close games out in the 4th quarter.
