I stopped reading here 

Suddenly lots of love in here. You mean we shouldn't be shying away because his team used a mid round pick (last pick of the second round) on a depth/insurance RB. I thought that was supposed to be th

Some people believe that their "RB1" has to be a "workhorse RB". But the trend of the workhorse RB as it used to be thought of, is getting close to extinct. I've looked up RB trends for Top 12 RB's (i

These Packers doctors are something I will consider in my next year drafting. They are fantasy killers.

Yeah consider that you should take the primary guys backup.

I'd rather lose him a week and have him be 100% for the latter part of the season, than 80-90% for the season with a higher risk of reinjury.

[...] To add insult to injury we didn't even know if Williams would be the main handcuff at the start of the season. There was some bullshit coach speak last week about how Dillon would get an increased role. Obviously that didn't happen but it's hard to know with backups that have an established role in the offense even when the starter is active.

This isn't a Zeke/Pollard situation.

Isn't it a little odd that he traveled with the team last week and was supposedly a GDT, but now this is looking like a multi-week injury?

it is odd, but it would be par for the course for this season. Also I believe somebody mentioned he's from Texas so maybe that had something to do with it?

williams played 90% of the snaps.  Stop pinning your hopes on coach speak and pay attention to whats happening on the field lol.

Definitely. Doesn't help anyone that didn't handcuff Jones with Williams prior to last weekend though lol.

Ya I thought u were saying it still isnt clear now. But still williams was playing way more than dillon so it seemed pretty clear to me he was the handcuff

Davante Adams was a Game Time Decision for 2 weeks and was held out both those weeks. GDT is also just a nice designation for messing with the other team a little, forcing them to prepare.

Not that I disagree, but I love to imagine Dan showing up to a press conference after the week 4 loss going "**** we prepared for Davante Adams not MVS, that's why we lost and I'm out of a job."

Not to me.  Packers are proceeding with caution, and they can win these games with Williams/Dillon filling in for now.

 

You mispelled Williams "Williams/Dillon"

Only Dillon I can think of the packers running back who got a grand total of 11 yards last week on 2.2 yards a carry...

Dillon might be more involved this week.  They probably don't trust Dillon in pass pro yet but they probably also want to keep Jamawful Williams fresh for the stretch run.  They really like Williams as a passing down back and part-timer.  Probably they don't want to run Williams into the pile 10-15 times.

Dillon's involvement will probably be game-flow dependent. If it's close you are going to see an awful lot of Williams, and Dillon won't be used in the passing game. Hopefully everyone cuffed Williams because he could have another big game here. If GB runs away with it, I wouldn't be surprised if Dillon runs out the clock.

I'm actually a bit worried about Williams involvement even when Jones gets back.

When Jones plays, he gets most of the RB TDs.  Like about all of them.
