AJ Dillon Tallies 81 Yards As Lead Back In Win Over Detroit

Thursday, November 23, 6:50 PM

Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon took 14 carries for 43 yards and caught all three of his targets for a gain of 38 yards during the team's 29-22 win over the Detroit Lions. With Aaron Jones (knee) out, Dillon was given the bulk of the carries in Week 12 and did a decent job against a tough Detroit run defense. Patrick Taylor mixed in but gained just 15 yards on his four touches. The 25-year-old has done well as a receiver this season and should remain a flex option as long as Jones misses time. Unfortunately, things will not get easier next week, as Dillon will go up against the Kansas City Chiefs, who have been fairly stingy against the run outside of last week's rain game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Consider the fourth-year back a fringe RB2 in Week 13.

Isiah Pacheco Smashes Raiders For Two Scores

Monday, November 27, 1:19 AM

Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco achieved his first career two-touchdown game on the ground in Week 12's 31-17 win over the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, accumulating 15 carries for 55 yards with five receptions for 34 additional yards. After change-of-pace back Clyde Edwards-Helaire failed to punch it in on a few goal-line carries, Pacheco was summoned to crash his way into the end zone in the second quarter. It appeared Pacheco took a Patrick Mahomes pass for a 14-yard house call during the third period, but he was ruled short of the goal-line, only to cash in another short TD plunge on the ensuing play. Pacheco's receiving numbers were also relieving to see, as the second-year grinding tailback was sitting on negative yardage in this department over his last three displays combined. Pacheco will find himself right back on the RB2 map in a Week 13 road matchup that sees the Chiefs square off with the Green Bay Packers.
