2020 Fantasy Outlook
While Dillon going in the second round of the 2020 draft wasn't necessarily a big surprise, the fact that he went to a Green Bay squad that already has Aaron Jones certainly was. Built in the mold of LeGarrette Blount, Dillon has enough speed (4.53 40) to make his bulk (6-0, 247) even more terrifying for would-be tacklers, and he has the patience and vision to let his blocks develop rather than simply jamming the line and trying to bull his way through traffic. He doesn't have much elusiveness, but he didn't need it during his college career given how difficult he was to bring down, and he has the frame to withstand the punishment his bludgeoning running style brings with it. Dillon could provide the thunder in a very effective backfield tandem, and Jones' league-leading 10 touchdowns from inside the 5-yard line last season could be up for grabs if Dillon takes the short-yardage role. The short-term upside does appear limited, as Jamaal Williams likely would share work with Dillon if Jones were to miss time. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Dillon played only a bit role in Week 1, finishing fourth among Packers running backs with five snaps. However, he showed well on his limited opportunities, racking up six and eight yards on his two rushes. Dillon finds himself in a crowded backfield in Green Bay, but he was taken in the second round of April's draft, so look for the team to try and get him more involved as the season wears on.
