Here are some of the Packers' fantasy football options this week:
Despite a dismal showing last week, both Ryan Grant (injury fill-in) and James Starks (No. 2) have fantasy value against a Rams team that, over three games, is allowing an average of 223 offensive yards and 0.7 TDs per game to running backs.
After starting the season with TDs in the first two games, FB John Kuhn has touched the ball four times for 21 yards and no TDs. He has no value outside of being an occasional TD vulture.
Despite WR Greg Jennings missing time Thursday after tweaking his groin, head coach Mike McCarthy doesn't appear concerned that Jennings will miss the game. Keep an eye on the late-week practice reports for a final status.
WR James Jones caught 5-140-1 last week and has two TDs in two games. Look for inconsistency, but QB Aaron Rodgers goes through his reads so Jones will have more opportunities. He's a free-agent pickup.
WR Donald Driver publicly said he's fine with his diminishing role. His only value is in larger leagues as an injury fill-in. His days as a consistent fantasy producer are over.
