AJ Dillon, RB (GB)

Maintains role as lead back

Dillon recorded 20 carries for 69 yards in Sunday's 36-28 win over the Rams. He added five receptions for 21 yards and a touchdown.

Dillon saw 14 carries in the second half of the game as the Packers looked to run out the clock on a lead, and he out-carried Aaron Jones 20-10 as a result. Despite that impressive volume, the most notable part of Dillon's production was his work as a receiver. He recorded the first receiving touchdown of his career midway through the third quarter and now has four or more receptions in three of his last four games. After the contest, coach Matt LaFleur called the backfield "a 1A and 1B" situation according to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, so all indications suggest the Dillon will remain heavily involved in the offense even with the return of Jones.
