Loser: AJ Dillon

For a while, we have considered the Packers' backfield duo of Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon as one of the league's best. However, Dillon has struggled in the opening two games of the season. We saw it when Jones was off the field in Week 1, and Green Bay desperately missed him in this game.

The Packers drafted Dillon to wear down defenses with his size and power, break tackles, and dominate in short-yardage situations. It's worrying to see Dillon go down at the first tackle on a regular basis. He was even tripping up before contact at times.

Dillon's numbers were better than last week but nowhere near the expectations for him. The former second-round pick had 15 carries for just 55 yards, an average of 3.7 yards per attempt. His longest run went for eight yards. Without Jones, the Packers had no explosive plays from their running backs.

Any offense that loses a player like Aaron Jones will take a step back, but the Packers need more production from their other running backs, even when Jones is healthy. If Dillon doesn't bounce back in the upcoming games, will the Packers consider bringing in a free agent to provide competition?
