In 2017, the Packers drafted 3 running backs in Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams, and Devante Mays. That running back group (now with Mays out of the picture) along with converted wide receiver Ty Montgomery, is off to a good start in 2018.

The rotation of Jones, Williams, and Monty keeps the group fresher down the line, especially for games in December at Lambeau.
