Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions
DK Price: $4,300
Aaron Jones continues to be the biggest playmaker in the crowded Packers backfield and gets another great opportunity to break out for his first big game of the season this week against the Lions. Jones averaged 7 yards per carry last week, carrying the ball 11 times for 65 yards and 1 TD.
The Lions have been getting beat up on the ground by running backs this season, giving up the 5th most fantasy points per game to the position. They have allowed an individual 100-yard rusher in 3-of-4 games this season and their average of 156 rushing yards per game is the most in the league.
The Packers can’t deny how much more Jones offers in the running game compared to Jamaal Williams. Even if Jones only manages 10-12 touches in the game, he just needs a couple big runs to have a big day in fantasy. Jones is a very affordable, high upside RB2 this week in a potentially high scoring game.
