Aaron Jones Finishes Season With Fifth-Straight 100-Yard Performance

Sunday, January 21, 9:31 AM

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones took 18 carries for 108 yards and caught three of six targets for a gain of eight yards during the team's 21-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The 29-year-old eclipsed 100 yards for the fifth-straight week and ended the year on a high note, being the first back to gain 100 yards on the 49ers since October of 2021. Jones had a rough fantasy season overall due to injury, but the veteran showed why he is one of the essential pieces of the Packers offense over the final five games of the team's season, gaining 584 yards on 102 carries, scoring three touchdowns, and averaged 5.7 yards per carry. Fantasy managers were hoping that AJ Dillon (neck, thumb) would be the clear incumbent to Jones when he was drafted, but he has not been impressive and is likely nothing more than a rotational back moving forward. Jones has a massive cap hit next season but will likely return to the Packers as their clear lead back.

Ty Chandler News

Ty Chandler Totals 89 Scrimmage Yards In Season Finale

Monday, January 8, 12:59 PM

Minnesota Vikings running back Ty Chandler had a strong showing in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Detroit Lions in the Week 18 regular season finale. Chandler had a team-high 12 carries for 69 yards (5.8 yards per carry) and caught two of his three targets through the air for an additional 20 yards. The 25-year-old second-year back was impressive against a strong Lions run defense and proved down the stretch that the Vikings probably should have gone to Chandler more often earlier in the season over Alexander Mattison. In four starts to close out the year, Chandler averaged 4.87 yards per tote, 258 rushing yards and two touchdowns while also catching eight passes for 69 yards. Going into the offseason, Chandler's fantasy stock will be on the rise as he makes his case to be Minnesota's primary ball-carrier in 2024.
