Jets | Bilal Powell and Alex Green take majority of reps

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 14:08:25 -0700

New York Jets RBs Bilal Powell and Alex Green received the majority of repetitions during the team's second practice of their three-day minicamp Wednesday, June 18.

Fantasy Tip: Powell, Green and Daryl Richardson are fighting for touches behind Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory, who are both dealing with injuries. Powell has late-round appeal, while Green and Richardson are best left to the waiver wire, unless either leapfrog Powell on the depth chart.

Jets | Mike Goodson returns

Mon, 30 Sep 2013 12:42:38 -0700

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson is eligible to rejoin the team for practice Monday, Sept. 30, after serving his four-game suspension for substance abuse.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Goodson to be involved much in his first week back, even with Chris Ivory (hamstring) expected to miss another week. Bilal Powell has earned the lion's share of the touches, and Alex Green is in the picture for backup touches.

Jets | Bilal Powell No. 1 on depth chart

Tue, 03 Sep 2013 17:59:20 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell is listed at the top of the team's depth chart, ahead of RB Chris Ivory and newly acquired RB Alex Green. RB Mike Goodson will also join the mix after he serves his four-game suspension.

Fantasy Tip: Powell's grasp on the job is still tenuous at best, and he should be considered nothing more than an RB3 or flex play in Week 1.

Packers | Tentativeness might cost Alex Green

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 09:24:19 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Alex Green (knee) has reportedly been tentative in training camp, and questions remains whether he can re-gain the quickness and speed he had before his knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: Green is simply trying to hang onto a roster spot at this point, as rookie RBs Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin figure to do most of the heavy lifting. For fantasy purposes, don't bother with Green.

Packers | No RBs stand out in blowout loss

Fri, 09 Aug 2013 20:22:09 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks led the team with 38 rushing yards on 12 carries in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 9, against the Arizona Cardinals. RB Alex Green checked in with seven carries for 16 yards, while RB Johnathan Franklin posted six scampers for 14 yards. RB Eddie Lacy (hamstring) did not play due to a hamstring injury, and RB DuJuan Harris (knee) was absent due to a knee.

Fantasy Tip: None of the RBs stood out, and the backfield remains a jumbled mess heading into the second preseason game. DuJuan Harris and Eddie Lacy are also in the mix, and he is expected to be the team's starter. However, there are questions whether Lacy could handle the every-down duties without frequent breathers.

Packers | Rookies only RB roster locks

Tue, 02 Jul 2013 15:26:05 -0700

Green Bay Packers RBs Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin are locks to make the roster. The rookies will be joined by some combination of Alex Green, DuJuan Harris (lung), James Starks and undrafted rookie Angelo Pease. Green and Starks have received first-team reps this offseason with the rookies studying the system and Harris sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: No back besides one of the rookies should be drafted in fantasy leagues. This will be a situation to watch during the season, but it looks like Franklin might be a better draft-day value than Lacy in what should be a shared backfield that already has to work on its running game plan.

Wed, 15 May 2013 05:22:57 -0700

Packers | Searching for lead back

Fri, 18 Jan 2013 10:17:55 -0800

The Green Bay Packers feel the need to find a lead back heading into the 2013 season, and that man may not be on the current roster. The Packers shuffled through as many as six running backs this season and weren't satisfied with any of their options. Among the unrestricted free agents they could target this offseason include St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson, Miami Dolphins RB Reggie Bush, Dallas Cowboys RB Felix Jones and New York Jets RB Shonn Greene. Green Bay would likely be interested in Jackson in the secondary market because he'll be 30 this year.

The Packers had some success using RBs DuJuan Harris, Alex Green and James Starks, but only enough to occasionally draw an opponent's safety into the box. "If you're running the ball and they're closing the middle of the field and bringing an extra guy down, it obviously plays to our strengths as a pass group," running backs coach Alex Van Pelt said. "There were times when I thought we forced their hand and they had to stop it, but we'd obviously like to be more consistent and more productive from start to finish." Harris has plenty of potential, but his lack of size led him to wear down at the end. Green Bay is unlikely to take another chance with RB Cedric Benson and the team might not be willing to pay Starks $1.323 million given his injury history.

Packers | DuJuan Harris trying to get accustomed to cold weather

Wed, 02 Jan 2013 14:13:56 -0800

Green Bay Packers running backs coach Alex Van Pelt said RB DuJuan Harris practiced without sleeves Wednesday, Jan. 2, to try and get comfortable playing in cold weather. Van Pelt said ball security could be a factor in the cold weather but Harris has big hands for his size which should help in that area. RB Ryan Grant could receive more carries in the Wild Card playoff game because he has played in cold weather playoff games before. Van Pelt said RB Alex Green will be available to the coaches whenever they need him to play.

Wed, 02 Jan 2013 13:47:53 -0800

McCarthy said the team will get Harris, RB Alex Green and RB Ryan Grant ready to play and will see how the game is going before deciding which back will get the most carries.

Charles, he's waiting on information from the medical staff. He's very close. Alex Green, I was surprised that he wasn't available for Tennessee just based on the way that process, the result of the process, so he'll definitely be available."

Packers | Alex Green questionable

Fri, 21 Dec 2012 12:20:34 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Alex Green (concussion) did not practice Friday, Dec. 21, and is questionable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: If Green doesn't play, expect Ryan Grant and DuJuan Harris to split the running back workload against the Tennessee Titans. The Titans present a nice matchup on the ground, but Green Bay's pass-first offense likely relegates them to bench options in most leagues, especially with a fantasy title on the line.

Starks hasn't been able to practice but he's been staying busy in the weight room. In his absence, the Packers have gone with a combination of RBs Alex Green, DuJuan Harris and Ryan Grant.
