What do you guys think about Ahman Green for the rest of the season?Do you guys think he can be a solid #2 Rb?

If he stays healthy.

I'm not a Pack fan so don't know exactly how well he's supposed to hold up, but I have no faith in him. But that's a pretty poorly educated opinion so maybe someone else can give you a better idea.

I think he's going to be a good matchup RB. GB doesn't have a very good D, and that can really hurt RB production. As well as injury. I think he'd be great for someone's bench, and if he's healthy and playing a favorable defense then he'd probably make a good start. But, as far as any consistencey, that's a long shot. Also, he may serve good as trade potential, if you can find someone who believe's in more miracle's than me. :-b

I don't like him much. He's too injury prone and the Packers throw too much for him to be valuable. Plus Herron and Morency will probably take carries from him.

I don't like him at all.

Other than the 70 yard TD he had, he was having a terrible day against Miami to the tune of 48 yards on 17 carries.

Also, I don't think he'll stay healthy enough to be dependable.

i think if he stays healthy he could be solid down the stretch with the weak teams GB have upcoming.

As a Packer fan, I've been watching Ahman struggle behind what is essentially 3 rookie linemen. There has been marginal improvement, but there just is not much running room.

Ahman looks healthy again, so I don't think that is an issue. He's also an every down back, so aside from the occassional spell, he isn't losing any significant carries.

I would agree he is a good matchup RB. Green Bay has some soft games remaining on their schedule, and as long as the O-line continues to progress, he could put up decent numbers.

Not a guy I would want to depend on from a fantasy standpoint, but if he's already on your roster, I think he will give you a couple good games.

I agree with the others that Green could be a decent matchup RB to have on your bench, but no way would I want to have to depend on him as an every-week starter.

No he's my #3 at the moment in my big money league, and I'm not too confident with that. He's scored solid points in every game he's played, but thats the problem. He's too much of an injury risk to depend on him. I'd feel good if he were my #4, and he's an ok #3 I guess. But I wouldn't want him as my starter, he's too much of a risk IMO.

Only as an RB3/4 and then only if he has a good match-up.
