The It is always interesting to see which players jerseys people buy the most. It is usually pretty easy to guess but sometimes there are some surprises. Fanatics, the official apparel of the NFL, released their best selling jerseys by state. Obviously the top seller was a Green Bay Packer but the player might surprise you. This Packers player has the top selling jersey in the state of Wisconsin.
Top Selling Jersey In Wisconsin
The @NFL is back!! So cool to see the top selling jerseys at @Fanatics broken out by state. @DangeRussWilson leads with 7 states, but @JoshAllenQB has the highest overall jersey sales since the start of training camp, and no surprise that the 🐐 @TomBrady sits in the Top 5. pic.twitter.com/wM5Ek9R1ke

If you were to guess the player you might say Aaron Rodgers or Jaire Alexander. However, it is Packers running back AJ Dillon who holds the spot for top selling jersey. You read that right. The RB2 on the depth chart is the top selling jersey in Wisconsin. However, Dillon has made an impact on Green Bay since arriving. His quads have been a topic of conversation around the league and “Quadzilla” is an awesome nickname. He is active in the community and often shows he really cares about the fans. The fans clearly love him as they are making his jersey the top selling one in Wisconsin.
An Outlier Among The Rest
Dillon is an outlier from the other states. Most of the other top selling jerseys are from top players in the league. Russell Wilson, Tom Brady and Josh Allen come in first in multiple states. The only other running backs to make it are former Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor and Derrick Henry. Taylor led the league in rushing last year and Henry is a freak of nature that continues to dominate on the ground. All of the other players have put up huge record breaking stats. Dillon is popular because of what he does on the field but more for what he does for the city of Green Bay.
This is really cool to see. AJ Dillon is an awesome player and an even better person. He is insanely like-able and seems poised for a big year. He could also reach some of those record breaking numbers in the future if he becomes RB1 at some point. For now, it is simply awesome to see the Packers AJ Dillon be the top selling jersey in Wisconsin.
