From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 24): The Packers are treating Eddie Lacy like a feature back, but Starks is still good enough to be very productive if Lacy goes down. He's one of the more established handcuffs to look at rostering for the fantasy playoffs.

Week 13: vs New England Patriots

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs CHI (5 / 10 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Starks didn't see much work, as the team didn't sub him in much for Eddie Lacy and gave the late-blowout workload to DuJuan Harris. His overall effectiveness was a mixed bag, as he was able to find a hole and get through it for a 6-yard gain in the third quarter, but got tripped up in the backfield when he tried to turn the corner in the second quarter. Overall, he wasn't asked to do much and had a limited impact.

2014 Week 11 vs PHI (8 / 9 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

Starks saw all of his work in the second half when the team was way ahead of the Eagles and the offense was winding down. His carries were a bit of a mixed bag of mostly off-tackle runs some of which exposed him to a multitude of tacklers before he hit the line of scrimmage. Overall though, he ran well, breaking some tackles and showing good speed against an admittedly gassed defense.

2014 Week 12 vs MIN (1 / -4 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

With Eddie Lacy running as well as he was, and the game a tight one, there wasn't much for James Starks to do. He only carried the ball a few times, and fumbled it once as well. On that play he was swarmed by defenders, one of whom stripped the ball. There was some question as to whether his knee hit the ground before he dropped the ball, but the Packers didn't challenge it since Jordy Nelson recovered it.
