1. Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers (vs. DET)
Though the Packers lost to the Bills on Sunday night in Week 8, they showed encouraging signs in the run game. Aaron Jones is coming off of a 20-143 performance against one of the league’s best defenses. The running game seems to be the only thing working right for Green Bay’s offense, and they’ll continue to run through that until Aaron Rodgers and the receivers can figure it out.
This week, Jones gets a dream matchup against a notoriously bad Detroit Lions run defense, who have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game to the position. With Jones running hard and efficient against a stout Buffalo defense, he has the potential to go nuclear in Week 9. He’s a locked-in RB1 and a solid play in daily fantasy lineups.
