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.

Tony Pollard Puts Up A Mediocre Game In Week 4

Sunday, October 1, 8:12 PM

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard had a mediocre game in a Week 4 win over the New England Patriots. With the Cowboys defense dominating throughout, the Cowboys didn't need to run their best plays with their best players on offense, ending up with Pollard taking just 11 carries for 47 scoreless yards. He added three catches for 13 yards on three targets. There were 15 other running plays out of the Cowboys backfield that didn't involve Pollard. Week 5 should be a closer game against the San Francisco 49ers, making Pollard a likely RB1 in that matchup.
