Johnathan Franklin was on his way to creating a day he'd long remember. He replaced the injured James Starks and was carrying the Green Bay Packers offense against the Cincinnati Bengals. 

A funny thing happened in the fourth quarter. Franklin got the ball on 4th-and-1 and fumbled the ball away for a game-winning Bengals touchdown.

If you're a fantasy owner, the fumble didn't matter. What mattered was that Franklin ran for 103 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three balls for 23 yards. 

Is he a one-week wonder or a legitimate fantasy running back? Josh Zerkle has the answer in the video above. Let us know what you think of Franklin in the comments below.
