Running Back: Aaron Jones

It shouldn't be a surprise that almost all the teams in the playoffs do a good job shutting down the run. There isn't a clear option or matchup that is favorable for running backs during the Wild Card weekend.

The Bills and Steelers game has some good running backs like Najee Harris and James Cook but weather looks to be a huge factor with snow and wind. Both should see a big volume of rushing attempts but it will be tough to move through the snow.

That is why I picked Aaron Jones as the running back who I believe will be the top scorer this week. He has seen 20+ carries in the last three games he played in during the regular season and had over 130 yards from scrimmage in each game.

The one thing he didn't do during that stretch is find the end zone and hasn't had a touchdown since Week 9. With A.J. Dillon unlikely to play this week, I think Jones will end that streak and find the end zone while continuing to surpass 130 yards from scrimmage.
