Green Bay Packers' running back Jamaal Williams is questionable to suit up in Week 16 due to a quad injury. Though there's nothing concrete about his status quite yet, he's certainly not a lock to take the field against the Tennessee Titans.

Assuming he can't go, A.J. Dillon could find himself on the low-end FLEX radar against a beatable Titans' defense.

Aaron Jones would obviously still be serving as Green Bay's lead back, but Dillon would likely take over backup duties from Williams.

Discounting Week 15, when Williams played just 4 snaps, he was averaging 12.2 opportunities (carries plus targets) per game. Dillon seems like a solid bet to soak up Williams' 9.4 carries, but his 2.8 targets will most likely go to Jones.

Still, that's enough volume to make Dillon a low-end FLEX/RB4 option against a Titans' defense surrendering top-eight PPR production to opposing RBs.
