2.) AJ Dillon

The Green Bay Packers have been limited this season since Week 1 and part of the reason why is because running back Aaron Jones has been dealing with an injury, giving running back AJ Dillon more opportunities.

The last two weeks, Dillon has had 35 carries for 137 yards and one score. While Jones did play last Sunday, he was limited to 8 carries while Dillon had 15. Last week, Dillon averaged over 4 yards a carry for the first time this season and he now goes into a divisional game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Minnesota has had success the last two weeks, including a primetime win over the San Francisco 49ers. They are taking a Green Bay squad that has their backs up against the wall going into this week. With Aaron Jones still working his way back from injury, Dillon is in another week as the main guy in the backfield.
