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.

Tyler Allgeier Sees Decreased Role Again

Sunday, November 26, 9:12 PM

Atlanta Falcons running back Tyler Allgeier began the season splitting the backfield duties with rookie Bijan Robinson. However, it appears the Falcons are finally ready to let Robinson loose and he has been making the most of it. That means, Allgeier will become the No. 2 option and see a reduced role going forward. On Sunday, Allgeier rushed 10 times for 64 yards in the win over the New Orleans Saints. A majority of his carries came in the fourth quarter as the Falcons were just trying to run out the clock. He did average 6.4 yards per carry, but the volume is going to be the biggest concern going forward. Fantasy managers should consider Allgeier a touchdown-dependent RB3 heading into next week's matchup against the New York Jets.
