The Green Bay Packers have been riding the resurgence of AJ Dillon in the last handful of games at the running back position, as well as getting some good contributions from Patrick Taylor in that Chiefs matchup. But ultimately, if the Packers are going to do some damage late this season and maybe even make some noise in the playoffs, they're going to need running back Aaron Jones.

Jones has obviously been a star for the Packers and is one of the key playmakers on this roster. He hasn't practiced since suffering a knee injury, but his ramp-up period could be coming. He's played in just seven games this season for the Packers and obviously hasn't been overly effective in those games as he's been dealing with the injury and maybe not being 100 percent.

Shockingly, he's still fourth on the team with three TDs from scrimmage.

We all know what kind of a threat Jones is capable of being when he's healthy and at full strength. He gives the Packers a dynamic option both on the ground and through the air, and even if he's not back for Week 14 against the Giants, getting him back within the next handful of weeks could absolutely help Green Bay make some noise.
