Green Bay's running back carousel kept on turning with news of Eddie Lacy sitting out practice with a hamstring injury. Now, Alex Green is the latest Packers running back to be working exclusively with the starters.
Making things murkier, James Starks is also considered to be in the mix for earning the lion's share of snaps. As a result, what was once considered a two-horse race between Lacy and UCLA product Johnathan Franklin has expanded even further. If that wasn't enough to consider, DaJuan Harris, who manned most of the Packers backfield duties down the stretch of the 2012 season, is still listed as the team's No. 1 despite not having taken a snap in camp thus far due to a knee injury.
Fantasy Impact: Lacy is currently the first Packers running back off of the boards with an average draft position in the fourth round. That's way too high of a draft position for a backfield that's not only undecided as this, but one that also belongs to an offense that will always be centered on passing the football with Aaron Rodgers under center. Packers preseason games will be especially interesting given this open competition, but don't be surprised if it ends with a hair-pulling running back by committee approach.
