Green Bay Packers running back Alex Green is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers running back Alex Green is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams. Green is dealing with a shoulder injury and was limited all week in practice. He is expected to play.

Green took over as the Packers' lead back last week after Cedric Benson suffered a foot injury in the previous game. Green has only 130 yards on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Alex Green has become a serviceable running back No. 2 in most fantasy leagues. He may not be the most talented running back, but Green is getting carries in a high-octane offense.

The Rams provide Green with a pretty decent matchup, as they are allowing over 100 yards per game on the ground. Start Green is you are struggling with bye weeks.
