1. Aaron Jones & AJ Dillon vs. Minnesota Vikings
What was a fantasy football headache last season is now the new norm for the Green Bay Packers: Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon will form a legitimate committee this season. While Jones offers the elite pass-catching ability, Dillon offers the ability to grind and wear defenses down. Both of these skill sets will be utilized in the Packers’ Week 1 matchup against Minnesota.
The Vikings are expected to be slightly more competitive this season under a new coaching staff and re-tooled defense. However, that shouldn’t stop both of Green Bay’s backs to put up solid performances in this game, especially when Minnesota was the 26th-ranked rush defense in 2021.
Start both of them comfortably as RB2s, and if you can fit them into your DFS lineups, it would be wise to do so. Both have top-15 upside this week.
