Green Bay Packers interim coach Joe Philbin did the unthinkable on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. And, no, it wasn't that Philbin was out of challenges less than 90 seconds into the game.


It was that the Packers had Jamaal Williams, and not Aaron Jones, on the field for the first drive of the game. And let's just say that fantasy owners might have freaked out a little bit when they saw this happening.

Jones actually didn't get a touch in the entire first quarter and had just seven yards on three carries at the half.

But don't fret. Jones ended the game with 17 rushes for 78 yards and a touchdown along with 3 catches for another 28 yards 


He was also the team's running back as the Packers ran out the clock in the fourth quarter.

A tough matchup against the Bears in Week 15 puts Jones in the high-end RB2 conversation next week. If Philbin figures out how to use Jones like he did in the second half, then the back could be an RB1 in the final two weeks of the fantasy playoffs.
