Then why did they demote Williams to #2 on the depth chart this week and promote Jones to #1?

 

Did they demote Williams to #2 and promote Jones to #1 on the field? Because from what I saw, 4 carries does not make a #1.

Thanks for the update.  Keep us posted on whatever else is revealed from a close study of the box score.

I am (and by Wednesday will be “was”) a Jones owner and have backed him. Don’t chalk this up as you looking behind the numbers and knowing something these “box score watchers don’t”.. It’s obvious this is Williams’s backfield, they’ve been winning games with him at the helm and he’s put up multiple touchdowns in the last few weeks. You’re either in denial or just trolling.

I don’t think focusing on the hidden meaning behind depth-chart changes is going to prove useful here.  Williams is clearly the featured back - and he hasn’t given his coaches any reason to remove him from that role.  If you own Jones, be grateful for the open roster spot and hit the wire.

But enough about Ty Montgomery.  :P

Williams looks like a better runner than Montgomery to me. That was the major issue I had with them rolling with Montgomery as their starter going into the season. The converted WR was always a fine pass catcher out of the backfield, but running was a different story. They needed backs like Williams and Jones to run the ball more effectively.

Close study of the box score? Okay pal. What exactly does your close study of literally anything going on with the Packers show you?

Unless this game gets out of control they should lean pretty heavy on the run to protect rodgers his first game back. But if Cam starts to rip up that defense then Rodgers is going to be asked to step up. And he usually doesn't lean on his RBS too much as far as dump offs. Depending on game flow it can go either way. But Idk how you can sit him unless you have elite options to choose from.

It definitely can go any way depending on game flow. But one item worth considering is that Rodgers was getting the ball to Ty Montgomery quite a bit to open this season, before Ty's injury. Montgomery had 18 catches in the first 3 games of the season (including a dump-off worthy 8 catches for 15 yards in Week 3). Here's to hoping Williams can have both a good rushing and receiving game going forward for this week (and the next week too).

Rodgers back, anyone sitting JW?

 

For what it's worth, these have been the RB numbers for the primary RB in each full game for Rodgers this season...

--Week 1: vs SEA- Ty Montgomery 19 carries - 54 yards - 1 TD; 4 catches - 39 yards - 0 TD

--Week 2: at ATL - Ty Montgomery 10 carries - 35 yards - 1 TD; 6 catches - 75 yards - 1 TD

--Week 3: vs CIN - Ty Montgomery 12 carries - 35 yards - 0 TD; 8 catches - 15 yards - 0 TD

--Week 4: vs CHI - Aaron Jones 13 carries - 49 yards - 1 TD; 0 catches - 0 yards - 0 TD (this is when Montgomery and Williams both got hurt)

--Week 5: at DAL - Aaron Jones 19 carries - 125 yards - 1 TD; 1 catch - 9 yards - 0 TD

 

So the primary RB has been fantasy-worthy in every game save for Week 3 (though for 1 point PPR leagues, that wasn't too bad either, due to the 8 catches)

You have pretty loaded at RB#2 not to lock this guy into lineups even with a difficult matchup looming @ Car.  

 

The guy has literally played stronger and more confident in different aspects of his game from running to catching to pass protection each week

How often has Cam "ripped apart a defense?"  I'll wait :)
