Summary

Starks is only draftable in very deep leagues where you can't necessarily count on your RB handcuff (or any usable RB) being on the waiver wire. He's more than capable enough to put up good RB2 numbers with upside any time Eddie Lacy is out. (May 22)

Packers | Eddie Lacy leaves practice (Tue Aug 4, 04:51 PM) - Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (foot) left practice Tuesday, Aug. 4, with a sore foot. RB James Starks finished out practice with the top unit. No indication was given as to which foot was sore and forced Lacy from workouts.

Our View: Keep an eye on this situation. Lacy had plenty of injury concerns when he came out of Alabama as a second-round pick in 2013. He's compiled 3,000 all-purpose yards in two seasons, but Lacy's touches have been monitored closely during his time in the pros. The team will be cautious with their starter here. Fantasy owners need to recognize that Starks would be a top-15 fantasy back if called upon for a starter's role.
