• Dillon boosted his targeted route run percentage to an elite 20% last season after only gathering four targets as a rookie.
• Dillon’s current RB24 ADP in PPR formats makes him a slight buy according to the PFF's consensus fantasy rankings.
A.J. DILLON COMPS
Dillon was used on a limited basis as a rookie, especially for a second-round pick. Nonetheless, the Boston College product boosted his rushing and receiving production dramatically in his second season despite backing up Aaron Jones. Dillon was a steady fantasy player, logging seven top-24 weeks.
Among Dillon’s comparisons, four posted top-20 finishes at the position in their third seasons while another three finished in the top 25. Dillon's most likely outcome in 2022 is good-not-great production as long as Jones is still on the roster, but there’s always the potential for a blow-up season if Jones is injured.
