Aaron Jones had a down year in 2021, at least by his standards. He suffered a midseason knee injury, lost some goal-line work to A.J. Dillon, and finished as the overall RB11 in PPR leagues. Just as the fantasy community started to sour on Jones, a huge trade was announced that sent Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders. With Jones and Dillon now sharing a backfield, this should benefit both of them tremendously. Jones is the preferred pass-catcher and should see increased usage in the passing game without Adams there to gobble up targets. Since 2019, Jones has played in seven games without Adams. In those games, he averaged 5.1 receptions, 55.4 rec yards, 67.1 rush yards, and 1.43 touchdowns. Added up, that comes out to 25.97 fantasy points per game. That output over a full season would almost assuredly push Jones into the elite tier of year-end finishers. Unfortunately though, things aren't quite that simple, and extrapolating a limited sample size over a full season rarely works out. Jones will turn 28 this year, which is a scary age for backs. However, his style of play and limited workload throughout his career should help him elongate his career. In 2022, Jones is looking like he'll be valued as a low-end RB2. Considering his talent and upside, he should make for a great value as long as his draft position remains out of the first round.
