Packers | Johnathan Franklin benched

Green Bay Packers RB Johnathan Franklin didn't receive another carry in Week 5 after he fumbled in the second quarter Sunday, Oct. 6. He has fumbled twice in his last four carries.

Fantasy Tip: The team plans to ride Eddie Lacy, which makes Franklin basically a handcuff. It's unknown how long James Starks (knee) will miss, but Franklin is in danger of falling back even further on the depth chart.
