Aaron Jones, Christian Watson Were On Snap Counts

Friday, September 29, 11:02 AM

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones and wide receiver Christian Watson said they were effectively on a snap count in their first game back on Thursday night in the 34-20 loss to the Detroit Lions. Jones had just five carries for 18 yards and caught one of two targets for a four-yard loss, while Watson hauled in two of his four targets for 25 yards, saving his fantasy day with a wide-open touchdown. Jones was making his first appearance since Week 1, while Thursday night's game was the first of the year for Watson, so fantasy managers shouldn't have been all that surprised that both players didn't play a big part, especially in a game that was never really close all night. Expect more involvement from both in next week's game on Monday night against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Elijah Mitchell Listed As Questionable For Week 4

Friday, September 29, 6:27 PM

San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals. The third-year running back injured his knee during Thursday's practice and missed Friday's session as a result. Mitchell has logged 16 carries for 52 yards and has caught 3-of-4 targets for just two yards while spelling starting RB Christian McCaffrey across two games this year (Weeks 1 & 3). He did not log a snap in Week 2. If he is unable to suit up for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Cardinals then Jordan Mason would likely fill in as McCaffrey's backup, although that role does not lend itself to much fantasy value. We will hear more about Mitchell's status on Sunday morning.
