News: Starks didn't record a touch in Sunday's victory over the Jets. Impact: The Packers called just 16 running plays while spending much of Sunday's game in catch-up mode, and none of them went Starks' way. He has some value as a handcuff to Eddie Lacy, but with 48 total yards through two games, Starks' production figures to be sporadic at best as long as Lacy remains on the field.(RotoWire, )

News: Starks had 37 yards on seven carries and 11 yards on two receptions in Thursday's game against the Seahawks, while teammate Eddie Lacy left in the fourth quarter and was later diagnosed with a concussion, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. Impact: The Packers have 10 days before their next game, but Lacy's history could be problematic, as the former Crimson Tide star missed Week 3 last season because of a concussion. If Lacy can't play next Sunday against the Jets, Starks will likely get the start and most of the touches, with DuJuan Harris working as the backup. While the matchup looks tough, Starks would still be an attractive option in many leagues, as the clear-cut starting running back in a high-powered offense. It's worth noting that the Jets' pass defense looks much weaker than their run defense, meaning Starks or Lacy could turn in a big fantasy day via touchdowns and receptions, even if the ground yardage is hard to come by.(RotoWire, )
