With an injury to Aaron Jones, AJ Dillon instantly becomes a borderline fantasy RB1. He's ranked just outside the top 10, but he certainly has the potential to finish in that range. After Jones left with an injury in Week 10, Dillon scored two touchdowns. He ended the day with 66 rushing yards and 62 receiving yards. The Packers face the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11 and Dillon should be in all lineups.
Another player that is nearing the top 10 is Saquon Barkley. Fantasy managers haven't seen him on the field since Week 5. Barkley is a clear RB1, however, it isn't clear if he is ready to take on a full workload. The Giants may want to ease him back in, which does lower his fantasy value a bit. If he is active on Monday night against Tampa Bay, you start him. Just keep in mind he may not be the top-five running back that he was drafted as for this week. And you have to be willing to wait it out since he doesn't play until Monday.
