A split in the Packers’ backfield will be a pain for fantasy players — at least for now.

Ryan Grant had to make sacrifices to earn his roster spot this year, but it may not guarantee him featured back status.
Despite a reports that says his roster spot could be in danger, I still think Ryan Grant is the Packers running back to target in drafts.
Ryan Grant expects to be the Packers’ No. 1 running back this season, but the emergence of James Starks has damaged his fantasy appeal.
The dreaded RBBC now looks likely to be heading to Green Bay, where Ryan Grant and James Starks will battle for carries.
Four play drive, touchdown off a turnover for the Packers. Again, earlier in the drive, the Packers anticipating blitz, block Troy Polamalu and get a big gain to Jordy Nelson. The Steelers then go to four-man rush and Rodgers hits seam route for the touchdown.

Before we turn our attention to the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, let’s take another quick look back at the MVPs of wild-card weekend.
The good folks on the NFL Network research desk have sent out the statistical notes from the Packers’ 21-16 win over the Eagles on Sunday.
We finally have a James Starks sighting. The Packers running back has been on the radar for quite some time, and he made his first appearance on Sunday.
