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.

Tyjae Spears Scores Twice In Week 18 Win

Sunday, January 7, 4:34 PM

Tennessee Titans running back Tyjae Spears rushed three times for 25 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 41 yards and a touchdown in the Week 18 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. With Derrick Henry likely heading to a new organization this offseason, Spears could find himself as the team's RB1 in 2024. That said, Tennessee will surely add competition to the backfield, so this is a situation worth monitoring. Either way, it was a great performance for the rookie to close out his debut season.
