Packers | Cedric Benson lays egg in team debut

Green Bay Packers RB Cedric Benson carried nine times for just 18 yards in his team debut in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers. He did not have any receptions out of the backfield, and he wasn't even targeted once.

Fantasy Tip: Benson should probably get a pass, as the 49ers rush defense is one of the best, if not the best, in the NFL. He should do a little better for his fantasy owners in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears, his former team, in Thursday's game. The Bears allowed just 63 net rushing yards in Week 1, but they did give up a rushing score. Still, consider him more as a RB2 or 'flex' player.
