|Stuck behind a workhorse on a pass first offense, James Starks
failed to carve out much more than a nominal role in 2014. After
a slight uptick in touches during Lacy’s early season struggles,
Starks usage fell off the map late in the season when Lacy heated
up. Starks’s role as a “breather back” is clearly defined after
the last two years, and one that is unlikely to change much in
2015. He’s basically a sub 4.0 ypc career runner, and offers very
little fantasy value outside an injury handcuff to Lacy.

FFToday'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.

Sprained ankle in Week 2 win over Seattle
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 21, 5:20 pm
|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. (NFL.com)|
FFToday'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.
