Ryan Grant could play bigger role for Packers in Week 16: Fantasy implications

David Banks

Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant could play a bigger role in Week 16. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant could have a big role in Week 16 if Alex Green (concussion) is unable to play on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. Grant and DuJuan Harris are currently the only two healthy running backs on the roster. Green did not practice Wednesday or Thursday.

Grant rushed for 32 yards on eight carries in Week 15 against the Chicago Bears and was the first running back to replace Green. Grant fumbled in the third quarter but was given four carries late in the game with Green Bay protecting the lead. Running backs coach Alex Van Pelt said (via The Green Bay Press-Gazette) that the team felt confident about putting Grant back in the game despite the fumble.

Fantasy Impact: Grant's fantasy value will depend on Green's availability. Grant likely won't produce big numbers but could be worth a look in deeper leagues.

Grant should not currently be in any fantasy lineups but may end up being a low-end flex option if Green is ruled out for Sunday.
