The Green Bay Packers announced Week 12 inactives and Aaron Jones is officially ACTIVE for their matchup against the Rams. Jones was listed as questionable this week due to a knee injury. He was limited in practice throughout the week.

Three limited practices turned out to be enough for Jones. He was initially expected to miss 1-2 weeks with his MCL sprain, so he’s managed to bounce back on the early side of that timeline. The running back hopes to be heavily involved in the offense against the Rams, and should be a starter in fantasy lineups despite his timeshare with A.J. Dillon.

The Packers skill players outside of Jones and Davante Adams do lose fantasy value with the running back’s return. Fantasy managers hoping to get another week of Dillon as the starter will have to shift elsewhere, although the second-year running back does have some flex value in this contest even with Jones’ return.
