A.J. Dillon was a surprise pick in the 2020 Draft and didn't see much work as a rookie, outside a snowy game against Tennessee when Aaron Jones was sidelined. In 2021 however, we saw Dillon slowly start to carve out a role for himself. Rather than playing second fiddle to Jones, Dillon and his counterpart were able to cohabitate in the Green Bay backfield. With the much lower draft position in the offseason, Dillon made for a great value. Dillon stepped in and played formidably when Jones was sidelined midseason with a knee injury. Upon Jones' return, Dillon held firmly onto the goal-line work. Now, with Davante Adams out of the picture, Jones is expected to see increased work in the passing game while Dillon should hold onto the early-down work. That being said, Dillon improved a lot in the passing game. He hauled in an absurd 91.9-percent of his targets and showcased some stellar abilities as a pass-catcher. Jones will be a frustrating thorn in the side for Dillon managers. However, their difference in skillsets and usage should make them both weekly flex plays at a minimum. In the event of an injury to either back, the other would likely be considered an RB1 for the rest of the season.
