Alex Green could be ready for Week 17: Fantasy implications

Jonathan Daniel

Green Bay Packers running back Alex Green (concussion) could return for Week 17 after being held out of the game on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers running back Alex Green was inactive for Week 16 but coach Mike McCarthy said on Monday that he was surprised Green wasn't available to play against the Tennessee Titans. Green suffered a concussion in Week 15 and returned to practice late in the week.

Green's injury left Ryan Grant as the primary running back for the Packers. Grant finished with 80 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday against Tennessee. The Packers face the Minnesota Vikings in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: The fact that McCarty was surprised Green couldn't play suggests that he's close to returning. Fantasy owners hoping to use Green in Week 17 will need to monitor this as the week goes along.

It probably wouldn't hurt either to grab Grant if he's available.
