2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Packers spent the offseason talking up Starks and his potential as a workhorse back in their offense. Then they signed Cedric Benson midway through training camp after Starks suffered a turf toe injury. Some players spend their whole careers on the cusp of earning a major role and you get the feeling that will be the story of James Starks. A 6th round pick in the 2010 draft, he entered the league with the reputation of being injury prone and hes spent his career backing up that claim, having missed 13 games of his rookie season due to injury and then three more in 2012 while also playing nicked up in numerous other contests. Starks entered training camp as a solid RB3 with upside given the expectation that he would not be splitting the job with a veteran back like he did with Ryan Grant. However, with Benson likely to earn a roster spot, Starks is a RB4 and most likely best suited to using in the flex role in leagues that use that position.

Comment: James Starks is dealing with turf toe which is a difficult injury to shake, especially for running backs. With Cedric Benson in town, Starks' arrow is pointing downward.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Lacy (hip) still limited in practice     -- Thu Dec 11 2:45 pm --

Packers not overly concerned about Week 15 availability
Maybe Eddie Lacy's hip injury will be more of an issue than originally thought. The Green Bay Packers running back did little to nothing in the portion of practice that was open for viewing Thursday. Lacy, who was officially listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, was uniform Thursday but spent a good portion of the individual drills watching his teammates go through the workout. Lacy did not finish Monday night's game against the Atlanta Falcons, but on Tuesday coach Mike McCarthy said he did not have a high level of concern about Lacy's availability for this Sunday's game at the Buffalo Bills. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: McCarthy stated following his team's practice on Thursday that Lacy is "making progress", but Friday's availability figures to be key. The second-year back has a difficult matchup against Buffalo, so if he is limited in any way going into the weekend, his owners need to have a backup option in mind. If Lacy were to miss Week 15, James Starks would fill in and could be considered a low-end RB2.
Injury Lacy (hip) dinged up in win over Falcons     -- Tue Dec 9 10:30 am --

"Bobsleddy" Eddie sits out final series in favor of James Starks
James Starks did the job at the end, helping the Packers run out the clock, but why wasn't Eddie Lacy in the game? It turned out Lacy sustained a hip bruise late in the game that prevented him from finishing. Lacy said he thought he would be OK despite the short turnaround to Sunday's game at Buffalo, but he couldn't go at the end against the Falcons. "I mean I tried, but no," Lacy said. Lacy and Starks combined for 148 yards rushing (Starks had 10 carries for 75 yards, while Lacy had 13 carries for 73 yards) and each scored a rushing touchdown. Lacy also caught a touchdown pass, but it was Starks who was there at the end. "He had a great game out there tonight," Lacy said of his backfield mate. "And we have to go out and continue to do this for the rest of the season." (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Lacy should be fine for Week 15 but James Starks makes a decent waiver wire pickup heading into Buffalo.
