Lane Taylor Agrees To Reworked Contract

Green Bay Packers left guard Lane Taylor agreed to rework the last year of his deal, freeing up around $3 million in 2020 salary cap space. Taylor is now due $1.5 million this year, including a $100,000 signing bonus. He was scheduled to make around $4.55 million in 2020, according to OverTheCap. The 30-year-old has been with the Packers for his entire seven-year career and has started 49 games in 78 appearances in that time. However, he played in just two games last year before being put on Injured Reserve with a biceps injury. Second-year guard Elgton Jenkins is slated to take over for Taylor full time this year after impressing in his rookie season.

Packers Want More Explosive Plays In 2020

Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur is looking for his offense to find more explosive plays under quarterback Aaron Rodgers in 2020, the coach admitted on ESPN Wisconsin's Wilde & Tausch. The Packers ranked 19th in explosive-play rate in 2019, according to Sharp Football Stats. However, other than free-agent addition Devin Funchess in the passing game, the Packers didn't really give Rodgers any added help outside of receiver Davante Adams and running back Aaron Jones. It will be on LaFleur to scheme up more explosive situations this year, but it definitely helps to have Rodgers throwing the passes, even if he's getting older. What's certain is that the Packers will need someone besides Adams and Jones to step up for Rodgers to hold off the naysayers.

Aaron Jones Wants To Be A Packer For Life

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones, who is heading into the final year of his deal in 2020, would like to finish his career with the Packers, but he knows that might not happen. Jones tied for the league lead with 19 touchdowns last year, but the Packers also drafted A.J. Dillon in the second round this year. Jones' agent, Chris Cabott, said that contract talks have taken place with the club. The fifth-round pick in 2017 had 1,558 yards from scrimmage in 2019 and needed the fewest carries (236) by a Packers running back to reach 1,000 yards rushing since John Brockington in 1971. But Green Bay hasn't given a second contract to a running back they drafted since James Starks in 2010. Jones is the best back in Green Bay by far, but he could lose even more touches in what could become more of a committee approach. He's unlikely to put up that many TDs again either, so Jones is more of a low-end RB1/high-end RB2.

Aaron Jones Makes Rising Stars List

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones was recently named to the NFLPA's Rising Stars list, which identifies the "top rookies and veterans poised to have a breakout season." The 25-year-old had his best campaign to date in 2019, finishing with 1,084 rushing yards and 16 rushing touchdowns off of 236 carries. He also added 49 catches, good for 474 yards and three additional scores. With the team reportedly focusing more on the run in 2020, the fourth-year man could be in store for another productive fantasy season, despite conceding a few touches to second-round pick A.J. Dillion. He is projected to be selected behind the likes of Austin Ekeler and Nick Chubb in fantasy drafts. However, he could easily finish ahead of them in many statistical categories by year's end.

A.J. Dillon Ahead Of Jamaal Williams As Aaron Jones' Backup

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones undoubtedly will be the team's lead back again in 2020, but the draft capital used on rookie A.J. Dillon (second-round pick) suggests that he'll see more work as the No. 2 over Jamaal Williams. Williams saw 373 offensive snaps in 2019 as Jones' primary backup. The Packers are shifting to a more run-heavy approach, which is why they took Dillon in the second round and not a single wide receiver in last month's draft. Dillon is a threat to Jones reaching his fantasy ceiling of a year ago, but it shouldn't make him any less of an RB1 consideration in fantasy drafts this fall. Dillon is a prime handcuff for Jones owners and would be highly attractive if Jones were to go down with an injury.
