Ranking the Packers’ running backs for fantasy football in 2020.

The Green Bay Packers have a lot of talent in the backfield, and that leads to some tough decisions in fantasy football.

Should you draft any of the Packers’ running backs this year?

And if so, which RB should you choose? Here are my rankings for Green Bay’s top four running backs for fantasy football this season.

1. Aaron Jones

Even with the good depth the Packers have at running back, Aaron Jones is still the clear number one in this backfield. Jones finished third among running backs for fantasy points last season in PPR scoring, tying with Christian McCaffrey for the most total touchdowns with 19.

Had it not been for the Packers’ decision to draft AJ Dillon, you could make a strong case for Jones being a first-round pick this year. But with all of the uncertainty in this backfield, that would come with some risk.

Jones is still a great fantasy running back, but his numbers could drop slightly from last season.

2. AJ Dillon

If you have a choice between Dillon and Jamaal Williams, my pick would be the Packers’ second-round pick.

As the No. 2 RB behind Jones last season, Williams finished as the RB36 in PPR scoring. He was too inconsistent to start each week. That won’t be helped with the addition of Dillon. Williams’ snaps could decrease.

Dillon, on the other hand, has the potential to land the number two job. And given his powerful running style, he could be a great choice for the Packers on the goal line. The upside is there for Dillon, which is why he’s ahead of Williams.

3. Jamaal Williams

Williams could remain the No. 2 on the depth chart, but it’s also possible Dillon moves ahead of him. Just how many opportunities Williams will have this season remains to be seen, but he could be a good pickup if either Jones or Dillon miss any time with injury.

4. Tyler Ervin

A potential deep sleeper is Tyler Ervin. He isn’t likely to have many carries but he should see an increased role in Matt LaFleur’s offense. LaFleur can use Ervin all over the field. His ability as a pass-catcher makes him worth adding late in drafts if you play in PPR or half-PPR leagues.

For a late-round pick, Ervin could become a useful flex option if he secures a bigger role on offense.
