Packers | James Starks injures ankle

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 18:46:18 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (ankle) left the Week 7 game against the Carolina Panthers in the third quarter due to an ankle injury and he was unable to return.

Fantasy Tip: If Starks is forced to miss time, Eddie Lacy will likely carry even more of the load as the No. 1 back. However, John Kuhn and DuJuan Harris could also see some added touches, but neither would have much appeal in FantasyScore.

Packers | More carries for James Starks?

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 17:20:23 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks did not register a carry in the team's Week 4 game, and head coach Mike McCarthy said that will change going forward. "James Starks should touch the football every single game," McCarthy said Tuesday, Sept. 30. "That will not happen again."

Fantasy Tip: Although Starks is likely to see some more touches going forward, it remains to be seen just how many carries he will take from Eddie Lacy. Even at his $3,000 salary (6% of cap) at FantasyScore, Starks isn't worth the risk in Week 5. However, the fact the Packers will make it a point to have Starks involved makes the struggling Lacy an even riskier pick until the backfield rotation becomes clearer.

Packers | Eddie Lacy won't miss extended time

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 11:23:09 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) isn't expected to miss significant time, but head coach Mike McCarthy said he'll need to be cleared by an independent neurologist before returning. RB James Starks would be the starting running back if Lacy can't return in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Lacy will have over a week to recover before Week 2 against the New York Jets. However, he's no sure thing to return. Avoiding his $5,600 (11.2% of cap) FantasyScore price is smart. Starks, at $4,100 (8.2% of cap), may present a solid bargain if Lacy doesn't play.

Packers | James Starks hoping to stay healthy

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 18:23:06 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks said his main goal this year is to stay healthy. "I feel I can be pretty great," Starks said. "I don't like talking about myself too much. But I think I can be real good. If I'm healthy, I can do a lot."

Fantasy Tip: Starks has flashed an intriguing combination of power and speed in the past, but injuries have caused him to miss 31 of a possible 72 games. His injury history combined with the emergence of Eddie Lacy will make it tough for Starks to be a regular fantasy contributor this year.

Packers | James Starks coming back

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 08:47:58 -0700

The Green Bay Packers agreed to an undisclosed two-year deal to re-sign RB James Starks Tuesday, March 18, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Starks will continue in a part-time role as the complementary back to Eddie Lacy in Green Bay. As a result, he won't have much fantasy value unless Lacy is dinged. Consider him mainly as a handcuff to Lacy.
