Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Packers | To go with shared backfield?

The Green Bay Packers may go with a combination of RBs Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin in Week 5 against the Detroit Lions. RB James Starks (knee) is injured and may not suit up for the game. "I think as far as running style, it really depends on the game plan, who you are playing and how you rotate those guys in," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "Some people try to run certain schemes with certain backs. Some people play them differently based on personnel groups. Those are game plan questions."

Fantasy Tip: Lacy is a must-start, regardless. Franklin should be owned in deeper leagues and is a risky flex play, since his workload will be a mystery.
