2015 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 he’s 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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Eddie Lacy, Davante Adams miss practice Thu.     -- Thu Sep 24 12:45 pm --

Sprained ankles
Eddie Lacy and Davante Adams sat out of Thursday’s practice with the sprained ankles they suffered in the Green Bay Packers’ 27-17 win over Seattle, leaving their availability for Monday night’s game against Kansas City uncertain. (Green Bay Press Gazette)

FF Today's Take: James Starks and rookie Ty Montgomery would likely see increased playing time the two Packer starters aren't available Monday night against the Chiefs.
Injury Packers optimistic Lacy could be a go in Week 3     -- Mon Sep 21 5:20 pm --

Sprained ankle in Week 2 win over Seattle
The Packers don't plan to go without Eddie Lacy for long. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Green Bay's hard-charging running back, who sprained his ankle Sunday against the Seahawks, is a candidate to play Sept. 28 at home against the Kansas City Chiefs. Rapoport was told that Lacy's injury is minor, even if it kept him from finishing off a 27-17 win over Seattle. In his absence, reliable backup James Starks plowed for 95 yards. (

FF Today's Take: Lacy was unable to put any weight on his ankle following the injury and Fox Sports reported that his ankle was "very weak and sore" on Monday. The Packers play on Monday night against the Chiefs in Week 3. Unless there are glowing reports about his recovery during the week, it may be best for his owners (that don't own Starks) to take the safe approach and opt for a healthy running back that will play on Sunday. Starks should be a low-end RB2 in the likely event that Lacy doesn't play.
