Packers running back James Starks could see an increased role when the team gets back from the bye. SOURCE: Tom Silverstein, Milwaukee Journal-SentinelFantasy Spin:Silverstein said Starks proved against the Cardinals in Week 9 that he's back to full strength after a two-month absence due to a toe injury. Alex Green was ineffective as the lead back and serves the team better as a change-of-pace player but he is much better than Starks as a receiver and Green Bay likes to run a lot of no-huddle. We'd take a wait-and-see approach with this backfield but fantasy owners should add Starks if he's still available.
1 Comment:
  • He was terrific in the Super Bowl run but his health has been a concern from high school on, I don't think he will ever play a full 16 game season. He runs hard north and south and has decent but not breakaway speed. His problems are blitz pick up and catching the ball.
