It's Tuesday, we're heading into just the second week of the NFL regular season, and we're a little more than 48 hours away from its first kickoff. Great news for us fans; bad news for banged-up players who have very little time to heal. This week, Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings and running back James Starks are fighting against the clock. Jennings has a groin injury, Starks is still dealing with turf toe, and both missed practice on Tuesday.
This is expected. Jennings and Starks will likely be game-time decisions. Starks is off the fantasy radar since he's fallen to third on the Packers' RB depth chart, and even wide receiver Randall Cobb lined up in the backfield almost 20 times in Week 1. Cedric Benson had a really tough go of it against the 49ers' ferocious run defense on Sunday. He should find more room against a Bears defense that is still pretty good against the run but allowed 48 yards and a touchdown to Donald Brown on just nine carries in the season opener.
If Jennings is active, I think he has to be in your lineup. If not, Cobb and James Jones should see an increase in targets, and both would be very worthy WR3 plays. I would rather have the more versatile Cobb if I had to pick one.
