Adam Schefter reported Monday that Packers running back Cedric Benson has been diagnosed with a Lisfranc foot injury and is out a minimum of eight weeks.

Alex Green and James Starks will likely handle the added workload, but there isn’t much upside to starting either of them in your fantasy line-up.
Fantasy Factor: The biggest boast may come to WR Randall Cobb, the 2nd year player has been used in many different formations this season and has even had a few carries for the Packers out of the shotgun.

Raji may have only seven tackles on the season, but he's a constant force and nose tackle, and their most reliable interior lineman. If Raji is out, it will fall on...
