After a particularly rough outing for the Green Bay Packers against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6, they have finally added depth to their backfield.
Starting running back Eddie Lacy was listed as questionable leading into Week 6. Although he managed to play against Dallas, Head Coach Mike McCarthy says Lacy is “very sore” and won’t be practicing Tuesday. Green Bay’s other running back, James Starks, had knee surgery on Monday and will be out for at least four more weeks. Without any depth at running back, wide receiver Ty Montgomery stepped up as backfield in the majority of the second half of the game.
Now the Chiefs have traded RB Knile Davis to the Packers for a late-round conditional draft pick. Davis had requested a trade back in March, but then denied he had done so.

Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware have been more than capable at the running back position up to this point for the Chiefs. With Jamaal Charles is returning from his torn ACL injury, there’s little room in the Chief’s running game for Davis.
With both Lacy and Starks out, expect to see Davis play quite a bit against the Chicago Bears this Thursday at Lambeau field. Davis has only averaged 3.3 yards a carry in his career, so fantasy players shouldn’t be too quick to pick him up off the waiver.
