Packers | James Starks faces tough test

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 12:22:54 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks will be up against a Houston Texans defense in Week 13 that has allowed only 58.8 rushing yards per game since Week 8. The Texans have not allowed a rushing touchdown since then.

Fantasy Tip: This matchup certainly doesn't bode well for Starks, who only managed 41 yards on 17 carries in Week 12. Don't view Starks as more than a flex option, if you can help it.

Packers | James Starks totals 68 yards

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 21:20:35 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks rushed 17 times for 41 yards in the Week 12 game against the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, Nov. 28. He also added five receptions for 27 yards on his five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Starks had a season high in rushing yardage, but that's not saying much. He is still nothing more than a low-end RB3 in all fantasy formats heading into Week 13 against the Houston Texans.

Packers | James Starks has 10 touches in return

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 16:59:37 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) returned to the lineup in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans. He rushed seven times for a team-high 33 yards and he added three grabs for 11 yards and a touchdown on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: Starks' return is very welcome, as they had been using WR Ty Montgomery in the backfield out of necessity due to injury concerns. Starks faces a good fantasy matchup when the Packers travel to Washington in Week 11.

Packers | James Starks active for Week 10

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 08:35:37 -0800

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) is active for Week 10's game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Starks is expected to serve as the backup to Ty Montgomery at running back and is worthy of consideration as a flex option in deeper seasonal leagues.

Packers | GB hopeful that James Starks can play

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 06:25:05 -0800

The Green Bay Packers are hopeful that RB James Starks (knee) can play in Week 10's game against the Tennessee Titans but a final decision about his status will not be made until after he participates in warmups, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Starks was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and is likely to see just a handful of carries in his first game back from knee surgery. He should only be considered as a possible flex option in deep seasonal leagues.

Packers | James Starks gets in another practice

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 13:44:21 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) was a limited participant at practice for the third consecutive day Friday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Starks will be able to make his return from knee surgery in Week 10, but owners might want to use some caution, as his usage will be unknown in his first game back. Ty Montgomery has emerged as the starting running back in Green Bay and figures to take on a regular workload this weekend, which could mean Starks will be saddled with very limited opportunities. He deserves consideration as a flex option only in deeper formats.

Packers | James Starks also limited

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 14:38:34 -0800

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Starks is primed to make his return to the field against the Tennessee Titans. Of course, don't expect him to receive a full complement of carries upon his return. The most likely scenario is that he and Ty Montgomery will split touches. As is the case with many returns from injury, it might be best to wait on Starks for at least a week.

Packers | James Starks has a chance to play

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 10:47:32 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) participated in contact drills during the media access portion of practice Thursday, Nov. 10. He should have a decent chance to play in Week 10 unless he suffers a setback.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Starks would have to share carries with Ty Montgomery or if he would receive a majority of the carries if he plays in Week 10. There is a decent chance that he will be eased back into the offense, which would hurt his fantasy value. Owners could consider him as a flex option if he is active.

Packers | James Starks listed as limited

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 15:10:52 -0800

Green Bay Packers TE James Starks (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Starks' status for Week 10 is not known at this point, but it is a good sign that he is able to do things during practice. It is not known how many carries he would receive if he plays in Week 10 but could be a flex option in some leagues.
