Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon (neck, thumb) has been ruled out ahead of Saturday's playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers. Dillon hasn't suited up since Week 17 as he continues to deal with multiple injuries. His absence means that Aaron Jones is going to see the bulk of the carries during this game. Jones has a tough matchup against the 49ers defense, but could be worth a look as a DFS option with the Packers shorthanded.

Atlanta Falcons running back Bijan Robinson wasn't quite as dominant as many expected heading into his rookie campaign. Despite that, Robinson was still productive and posted a solid outing in the regular season finale against the New Orleans Saints. Robinson struggled on the ground with only 28 yards on 11 carries in the loss. However, he salvaged his fantasy value with seven receptions on eight targets for 103 yards and a touchdown in the receiving game. Robinson will finish his rookie season with 976 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 214 carries. He also added an additional 487 yards with 58 receptions and four touchdowns as a receiver. Robinson has the tools to be an elite back, but head coach Arthur Smith doesn't appear to know how to unlock them. It sounds like Smith will return next season, which makes Robinson a risky RB1 in fantasy leagues.
