Summary

Running Back Rank: #295All Players: #1130
Benson signed with the Packers shortly before the start of the season and eventually grabbed the starter's job for the team. Unfortunately, Benson injured his foot Week 5 and missed the rest of the season, requiring surgery on the Lis franc injury. Benson has 345 total yards in five games before the injury. He rushed for 80-plus yard two of five games. He averaged just 3.5 yards per carry, though, which wasn't too impressive. Benson had three straight 1,000-yard seasons before last year. At age 30 and coming off a major foot injury, his best days are likely behind him. Benson can still help in spot duty but don't expect him to carry the load at running back anymore. Benson doesn't have great speed, but runs with power and has good moves for his size. Benson can also do alright in the passing game, catching 14 or more passes six straight seasons.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Benson isn't much of a fantasy help these days. He might help in a pinch if he gets a start or two but don't expect much. He could get around 600 total yards and a few scores if he ends up getting consistent work in a reserve role.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Cedric Benson could very well return as the team's starting running back in 2013. 'I think there's a chance for that,' Benson said. 'At least I sure hope there is. I've been around a long time, and I know it's a strange league. But I really hope I get another chance here.'
Fantasy Impact: We aren't so sure that happens as the Packers seem likely to try to get younger at the position.

The Green Bay Packers feel the need to find a lead back heading into the 2013 season, and that man may not be on the current roster. The Packers shuffled through as many as six running backs this season and weren't satisfied with any of their options. Among the unrestricted free agents they could target this offseason include St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson, Miami Dolphins RB Reggie Bush, Dallas Cowboys RB Felix Jones and New York Jets RB Shonn Greene. Green Bay would likely be interested in Jackson in the secondary market because he'll be 30 this year. The Packers had some success using RBs DuJuan Harris, Alex Green and James Starks, but only enough to occasionally draw an opponent's safety into the box. 'If you're running the ball and they're closing the middle of the field and bringing an extra guy down, it obviously plays to our strengths as a pass group,' running backs coach Alex Van Pelt said. 'There were times when I thought we forced their hand and they had to stop it, but we'd obviously like to be more consistent and more productive from start to finish.' Harris has plenty of potential, but his lack of size led him to wear down at the end. Green Bay is unlikely to take another chance with RB Cedric Benson and the team might not be willing to pay Starks $1.323 million given his injury history.
