Since the days Brett Favre was slinging the ball around the frozen tundra, the Packers have been known as primarily a passing team. However, last year when Favre’s successor Aaron Rodgers when down with an injury the Pack showed they have the pieces in place to have an effective rushing attack as well.
A lot of the value of the Packers RB’s is conjecture since how exactly the Packers will balance Rodgers aerial expertise with their running game still remains to be seen. There is definitely some potential, though, and the Packers offense should be among the best in the league at season’s end.
Whenever you can get a workhorse back in a great offense, you’re looking at a RB1 which is why whoever gets the handoffs in Green Bay will be a fantasy factor. As we continue our RB rundowns, we’ll focus on the Packers backs from a fantasy perspective. The ranking listed next to the player is based on my overall RB rankings which should give you a good idea of where I think they should fit on your roster.
