In his weekly Packers fantasy assessment, PFW executive editor and resident packers expert Dan Arkush believes it would be a mistake to put much fantasy stock in Packers RBs Brandon Jackson and John Kuhn.

If you’re desperate for help at running back and are thinking about taking a stab at any of the Packers’ current running backs, our advice is to steer clear of both Brandon Jackson and John Kuhn, even though the burly Kuhn really came through at the end of Green Bay’s Week Four win over the Lions, picking up key first downs over and over again to help the Pack kill the clock and hold off the feisty Lions.

But the fantasy reality is that Kuhn and Jackson aren’t expected to get any more than 8-12 carries each moving forward, with their scoring opportunities figuring to be minimal as the Packers depend more than ever on their plethora of effective fantasy receiving weapons.
