Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver played just three snaps in last weekend's loss to the San Francisco 49ers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver isn't used to being left out of the game plan. He was on the field for only the final three plays in the Week 1 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Driver has seen his playing time eclipsed by Randall Cobb, who had 77 yards on nine catches in the season-opener.

Fantasy Impact: Driver is just an example of how quickly things can change in fantasy football and the NFL. He has been a solid fantasy player and now he is probably Green Bay's No. 5 receiver behind Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, Cobb and James Jones. Driver could move up if there are injuries, but he is currently of little use to fantasy owners.
