Jones rushed 11 times for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-16 win over the Bears. He also caught four of five targets for 43 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Jones' production was evenly split between the ground and the air as he again displayed his versatility while topping 80 scrimmage yards. The tailback's 11th touchdown of the campaign, however, came on the ground when Jones rushed in from four yards to give the Packers a commanding lead late in the fourth quarter. By helping Green Bay secure the top seed in the NFC, Jones will now get a week off before taking the field in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Jones rushed 10 times for 94 yards and caught two passes for 14 more yards in Sunday's 40-14 win over Tennessee.

EDGE Analysis

Jones had an incredibly efficient game, averaging a whopping 9.4 yards per carry, which is shockingly the second time he has averaged over nine yards per tote this season (9.3 YPC in Week 2). While that kind of effectiveness should warrant celebration from his fantasy managers, it actually left them wanting more after seeing backup AJ Dillon go off for 124 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries. While the lopsided score explains why the backup received twice as many carries as Jones, it is worth noting that one of Dillon's scores came on the Packers' second drive of the contest. Head coach Matt LaFleur stuck with his usual backfield timeshare even with Jamaal Williams (quad) sitting this one out, and then Dillon took on a larger workload in the second half once the game was put well out of reach. The light workload should have Jones well-rested for an important seeding matchup against the Bears on Sunday.

Jones (toe) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Tennessee, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jamaal Williams, on the other hand, is listed as doubtful, still bothered by the quadriceps injury that knocked him out of last week's win over Carolina. Jones ended up playing 90 percent of offensive snaps in that game, piling up 158 total yards and a TD on 23 touches. He should be in for another large workload this week, though it's possible the Packers give rookie AJ Dillon a bit more work.

Jones (toe) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones' reps were capped for the second day in a row after he picked up a toe injury in the Packers' Week 15 win over the Panthers. Fortunately for Jones and his fantasy managers, the running back relayed earlier Thursday that despite his limitations, he's "feeling good" and "ready to go" for Sunday's showdown with the Titans, according to Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. If Jones can increase his activity in Friday's practice, he should approach the team's Week 16 contest without a designation.

Jones (toe) participated in Thursday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was a surprise addition to Wednesday's injury report as limited due to a toe issue. It remains to be seen whether he increased his reps or merely maintained them Thursday, but Jones still is doing more than Jamaal Williams, who hasn't practiced this week with a quad concern.

Jones was a limited participant at practice Wednesday due to a toe injury.

EDGE Analysis

Meanwhile, Jamaal Williams didn't take part at all due to the quadriceps injury he sustained Week 15 against the Panthers. With both Jones and Williams tending to health concerns, rookie second-round pick AJ Dillon is the only Packers running back at full capacity. The state of Green Bay's backfield will be one to monitor as the week goes on.

Jones rushed the ball 20 times for 145 yards and one touchdown in Week 15 against the Panthers. He added three receptions for 13 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Jones had the Packers' backfield to himself for much of the contest after Jamaal Williams (quad) exited early on. He took advantage by ripping off long runs of 46, 14 and 10 yards to total his highest rushing yardage total since Week 2. Jones also tallied his eighth touchdown of the campaign, finding the end zone from eight yards away late in the second quarter. He'll have another positive matchup in Week 16 against the Titans and will look to duplicate this statistical output.

Jones collected 69 rushing yards on 15 carries, adding two receptions for six yards during Sunday's 31-24 win against the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Jones endured one of his quieter fantasy outings during Week 14, collecting his second-lowest total in scrimmage yards since Week 6. That was in spite of the 26-year-old garnering 14-plus touches for a sixth consecutive game. Touchdowns were a hallmark to Jones' prolific 2019 season, but they have been less so in 2020 as the fourth-year back has totaled nine scores after collecting 19 a season ago. Even so, he remains well-positioned to top the 1,000-yard rushing mark for a second consecutive year, standing 177 yards shy of the milestone entering a Week 15 Saturday night matchup against the Panthers' 15th-ranked rush defense.

Jones carried the ball 15 times for 130 yards and a touchdown and caught all three of his targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 30-16 win over the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

The Philly defense did a good job keeping Jones in check for three quarters, but he finally broke free in the fourth and put the game out of reach with a highlight-reel 77-yard TD run. Jones could be headed for another huge performance in Week 14 against a Lions defense that just surrendered 111 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns to David Montgomery.

Jones rushed 17 times for 90 yards and caught one pass for no gain in Sunday's 41-25 win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was able to find consistent holes through a tough Chicago front (5.3 yard per carry), but he was unable to hit pay dirt. The lack of touchdowns has been a concern for the 25-year-old, as he has just six trips to the end zone in nine contests after racking up 16 rushing touchdowns in 2019. Jones is still a strong fantasy asset despite the regression in scores, sitting atop the depth chart on a potent offensive unit. Backup Jamaal Williams received an equal amount of carries (17) only due to the blowout nature of Sunday's game. Jones will look to feast on the Eagles next week, as they own one of the worst run defenses through 12 weeks (133.4 rushing yards allowed per game).
