Alex Green should return in Week 17, clouding his fantasy value

Andy Lyons

Alex Green is expected to be pass his concussion tests for the team's Week 17 game.

Green Bay Packers running back Alex Green is expected to be available for the team's Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Green did not pass his concussion test, forcing him to sit out Sunday's win over the Titans, but coach Mike McCarthy said Green would definitely be available for the regular season finale. Ryan Grant handled the bulk of the running back work in Green's place, rushing for 80 yards and two touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: Count on Alex Green, who hasn't been a fantasy factor all season, to cloud the Packers' running back picture. Ryan Grant was a stud in place of Green, but it appears his workload will be cut into a bit as the team heads towards the playoffs.

Grant is still the Packers running back to own for fantasy purposes.
