Aaron Jones suspended 2 games, substance abuse policy violation

I like this fantasywise.  This ensures that Jones will stay under the radar and be available later than his current adp of 83.  This news might even cause his adp to fall to the 9th or 10th round.  Jones looked special last year.  He could be the steal of the draft.  The only thing that could hold him back is if he struggles at pass protection again.  His PFF pass-blocking grade was 40.1 last year.

 

I disagree with Rotoworld's analysis that Williams will be the early-down back with Montgomery coming in on passing downs while Jones is out.  For the last 2 years, Montgomery has been most effective on 1st downs.  Montgomery averaged 2.4 ypc on 2nd and 3rd downs last year but averaged 4.9 ypc on first downs.  In 2016, Montgomery averaged 3.8 ypc on 2nd and 3rd downs but averaged 7.0 ypc on 1st downs.  And Williams is far better than Montgomery at pass protection with Williams getting a PFF pass-blocking grade of 80.2 and Montgomery getting 64.9.   My guess is that they won't substitute between Montgomery and Williams based on downs.  If they do substitute during a drive, it'll only happen once per drive occurring between the opponent's 20 and 40 yard line.
