Found October 03, 2013 on Fantasy Football Champs:
Packers halfback James Starks won't be available for Week 5 because of a sprained knee. SOURCE: Tyler Dunne, Milwaukee Journal-SentinelFantasy Spin:Starks was a popular fantasy add in Week 3 after Eddie Lacy went down but it didn't take long for the injury bug to hit him just as hard. Now that Lacy is back, Starks doesn't figure to be heavily involved in the Green Bay offense upon his return. It's safe for fantasy owners to cut him loose.

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Coming off the Bye

Everything points to a Packers victory this weekend, and it has me nervous.  The Lions haven’t won a game in Lambeau Field since before I stopped believing I could grow up to be Batman (1991).  The Packers are 8 point favorites.  They are coming off of a bye.  They should be getting healthier, although it is unclear whether Clay Matthews and Casey Hayward are going to play...

Lions focus on trying to contain Packers' Aaron Rodgers

Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh got to know Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers this summer and although Suh said he’s “good people” the two aren’t exactly friends. “I don’t think I’ll ever be able to have a friend that’s a quarterback especially one I see twice a year” Suh said with a smile Wednesday.
