Alex Green stinks it up for fantasy owners even with 20 carries

David Welker

Alex Green turned 20 carries into just 35 yards on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Alex Green led the Packers in rushing with 35 yards on 20 carries. He didn't score, but had four catches for 29 yards in the passing game.

Green averaged just 64 yards per game on 16 carries per contest. He is still expected to be the starter while Cedric Benson (foot) misses an extended period of time.

Fantasy Impact: Green has a stranglehold on the starting gig even though the performance hasn't been there. The Packers did bring on former Bill Johnny White, so perhaps White can be a factor once he learns the offense. Obviously, White is only an add for very deep leagues.

Green should still be owned in all leagues and he'll be an RB2 against the Jaguars next week.
