It is hard to get too excited about a running back that has six carries and one reception on the year, but if Green Bay shakes up their backfield there could be an opportunity for James Starks to reclaim some fantasy relevance. Should you add him?. If you are in a league where the running back landscape has been picked over like a carcass it may not be a bad idea.. Starting running back Alex Green has struggled since taking the starting job over from the injured Cedric Benson. He is averaging a mere 2.9 yards per carry.. Green has shown the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield with four receptions in each of the past two games. I think he will continue to work on passing downs, but the days of 20+ carries could be numbered.. The Green Bay Press Gazette is suggesting that Starks will be more involved this week, and that last week’s lack of involvement was due to a stomach flu that keep him out of practice.. If Starks is able to make the most of his opportunities this week, perhaps he can assume more of the early down work.. Make sure you don’t make any rash decisions thinking that you’re getting an every down back. The best case scenario for Starks is a timeshare.. That said, if you are in a jam, maybe he’s worth the roll of the dice. Obviously if he has a big game this week he’ll be a hot commodity. Maybe you can beat the rush and add him early...
