Ryan Grant signs with Green Bay Packers: Fantasy Implications

Scott Boehm

With injuries in the backfield, the Green Bay Packers have signed former RB Ryan Grant. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

The Green Bay Packers have reportedly signed their former running back, Ryan Grant, per Jason Wilde. The Packers have sustained injury in the backfield, losing Cedric Benson earlier in the season and now James Starks.

This was a desperation move by the Packers, who needed to add depth to their lineup. Since Grant already knows the playbook, it was the best possible move the front office could have made under the circumstances.

Fantasy Analysis: Grant, 30, is past his prime and will not be a viable fantasy option any time soon. He will come in to provide depth behind Alex Green in a very pass-heavy Packers offense.

With the fantasy postseason upon us, gamers cannot be relying on Grant. Ryan Grant is off the radar in all fantasy leagues. He does not even qualify as a low-end flex.
