Aaron Rodgers Is a Big Fan of Packers' Rookie RB Aaron Jones

Posted October 01, 2017

The Green Bay Packers and fantasy football players alike may need a rookie to rescue their rushing attack after Ty Montgomery suffered a rib injury during Thursday's 35-14 victory over the Chicago Bears.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Ty Montgomery's rib injury is not as serious as initially thought.

The Packers next play at Dallas on Sunday, Oct. 8. He had ice packs on his knee and ankle after the game.

Montgomery left after Green Bay's first offensive series against the Bears and didn't return. That left Green Bay with one option left at running back - Aaron Jones.

That is not exactly what fantasy players are looking for, but Montgomery did manage 5.9 yards per carry past year as a converted receiver, and Williams has plenty of upside to be a game-changing back.

Pending Injuries, Packers' RB Aaron Jones Could Be Legitimate Fantasy Football Play

However, Williams' talent alone makes him worth a waiver-wire pickup if he is still available.

How many snaps the fifth-round pick receives moving forward will likely depend on the health of the other two backs, but Jones maximized his minutes and made a case for more playing time.

Rookie Aaron Jones rushed 13 times for 49 yards and a touchdown after Montgomery and Williams both left with injury on Thursday night.

The rookie out of UTEP was the last remaining healthy back active for the game, with fellow rookie Devante Mays inactive. He'll be relied on to keep Green Bay's offense balanced next week while the rest of their depth chart heals up. Jones also has been knocked for his pass protection, which could cut into his future usage.
