Disappointing Packers: AJ Dillon
I’ve talked about AJ Dillon a lot in this space, and it’s no surprise his name comes up in this category once again. The 2020 second-rounder has regressed since his rookie season, looking more like a plodding running back with limited vision than the power back the Packers hoped he could become.
Dillon has seen extended playing time this season with Aaron Jones battling a hamstring injury. However, it hasn’t resulted in a bigger statistical output. Among the 30 players with at least 60 rushing attempts this season, he ranks 27th by averaging 3.0 yards per rush. Although he shouldn’t receive all the blame since the Packers’ offensive line has had its fair share of struggles, he has been the primary reason Green Bay hasn’t gotten their running game going yet this season.
