Green Bay Packers RB Johnathan Franklin (neck) is still recovering from a neck injury which landed him on the season-ending Injured Reserve late in the year. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Franklin did not undergo surgery, and he only knows a limited amount about his rehab because Franklin has not met with doctors lately.

Green Bay Packers running backs coach Alex Van Pelt said Friday, Nov. 22, that ideally the team would like RB Eddie Lacy to handle the ball 20 times, with RB James Starks getting five carries and RB Johnathan Franklin handling the ball five times. It depends on the situation. If the game is on the line, Lacy "will be the one carrying the ball."

Green Bay Packers running backs coach Alex Van Pelt said this week that RB Johnathan Franklin is not a forgotten man, and that the rookie would get another shot at some point. Franklin might offer a different dimension. "Obviously he's quite different than the other two, size-wise, quickness, ability to make guys miss," Van Pelt said Friday, Nov. 22. "Things like that that he brings to the table. I'll still say we'll see him before the year is out."

The Green Bay Packers ranked fifth in rushing yards per game (140.8), and with several wide receivers banged up, there might be more of a focus on the run game going forward. "I just think there's some growth there," head coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday, Oct. 15. "You could see it when we got together in the spring. It was exciting once we got in pads in training camp." The Packers threw the ball 122 times in the first three games, going 1-2. In the past two games, they ran 63 times to just 62 pass attempts, winning both games. RB Eddie Lacy has run for 219 yards over the past two weeks, and RBs James Starks and Johnathan Franklin have each hit the century mark once this season.
Fantasy Tip: Lacy is the one to watch for fantasy purposes heading into the new week. He was able to shred the Baltimore Ravens for 120 rushing yards last week, averaging 5.2 yards per carry, and has emerged as a must-start RB2 or flex play in all formats. The Week 7 opponent, the Cleveland Browns, have allowed just 98.2 yards per game. However, they have given up eight rushing touchdowns, which is most in the NFL.
