Green Bay Packers RB Alex Green will get the first carry in the team's Week 6 game. After that, however, head coach Mike McCarthy said he will go with the "hot hand" between Green, RB James Starks and RB Brandon Saine. All three running backs received first-team reps in practice Wednesday, Oct. 10. "Alex and James both got reps today and so did Brandon Saine," McCarthy said. "The first carry will be Alex Green. He's a little farther ahead than James is right now and that's the way we'll go. But we have three halfbacks and we'll utilize all three of them."
Fantasy Tip: Owners must take a wait-and-see approach when it comes to the Packers' backfield at this point as it appears to be a fluid situation. Green may be the man moving forward, but keep a close eye on how the carries are distributed in Week 6 to get a better idea.

The Green Bay Packers are considering going to RB James Starks, who has been inactive for the first five games, with RB Cedric Benson (foot) out at least eight weeks. RB Alex Green had a big run in the team's Week 5 games, but the team is worried about his protection issues. "Alex did some good things, and there's some things he'll definitely learn from," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "He obviously had the big run there, did a great job there and a nice job on the trap play. But there's some protection opportunities that we need to clean up and the course of certain runs. (He's) a young guy that took advantage of an opportunity, and this will be an opportunity for him and James and Brandon to play this week against Houston." RB Brandon Saine could also be mixed in.

Green Bay Packers RB Brandon Saine (hamstring) is back on the practice field after dealing with a hamstring injury.
Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:23:48 -0700
Green Bay Packers RBs Cedric Benson and Alex Green are expected to see a bulk of the carries early in the regular season if RB James Starks (turf toe) is not ready to go. Starks has progressed slower than the team hoped. RB Brandon Saine (hamstring) is also in the mix for touches if Starks isn't ready.

The Green Bay Packers have just one 100-yard individual rushing performance in the past 32 regular season games. They are 25-7 during that time. The Packers are very young at running back this season, with RBs James Starks, Alex Green, Brandon Saine and undrafted rookies Marc Tyler and Duane Bennett on roster.
Sun, 17 Jun 2012 17:44:40 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB Brandon Saine did well in spot duty last season when called upon, but he still has work to do to become a regular productive player. As it stands, he might only serve as the No. 2 RB until RB Alex Green (knee) is regular for a full-time workload.
Sat, 16 Jun 2012 23:27:04 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB James Starks is convinced he is ready to break out this season. "I believe I can and I believe I will," Starks said. Starks has a long history of injury problems, so counting on him for an entire 16-game season may be too optimistic. He has spent time during the offseason working on his flexibility and endurance with hopes of avoiding another injury-filled season.
The Packers seem to believe Starks is ready to step up, too, based off of their lack of movement at the running back position during the offseason. However, they are taking a chance because the team has oft-injured, unproven players in the backfield. None of the team's backs - Starks, Alex Green and Brandon Saine - have proven they can handle a heavy workload, but if the team's pass-first offense continues to click they can get by with the group they have.
Fantasy Tip: Relying on Starks as anything more than a No. 3 runner at this point is pretty dangerous. He hasn't shown enough during his first two seasons to prove he can be depended on as a starting fantasy option. Plus, the Packers' offense runs through the passing game, leaving little opportunities for the backs to consistently provide points to your squad.

The Green Bay Packers may not look to re-sign impending free-agent RB Ryan Grant. The Packers may hesitate to commit more guaranteed money to a 29-year old running back. The team also has the presence of younger RBs James Starks and Brandon Saine on the roster.
Sun, 25 Dec 2011 21:15:00 -0800

Sat, 20 Aug 2011 21:36:31 -0700
Green Bay Packers RBs Dimitri Nance and Quinn Johnson are in the running for roster spots, and RB Brandon Saine has looked good during training camp, too. The team usually keeps six running backs on roster each year, so they could run into a numbers game. RBs Ryan Grant, James Starks, Alex Green and John Kuhn are at the top of the position currently.
