2013 Outlook:Last updated on Oct-30-2013 by Jeb Gorham
James Starks is a ghost of fantasy running backs past, but he still has it. Coming off a knee injury, Starks returned to back-up Eddie Lacy last week and rushed seven times for 57 yards and a late second half score. Starks filled in nicely in Week 2 with Lacy out and is definitely Lacy's handcuff. However, if Green Bay can play from the lead, Starks could capitalize fantasy-wise off garbage time. This week I like the odds of Starks cleaning things up against a Chicago team reeling at the loss of Jay Cutler. Chicago will not likely be able to keep pace with Green Bay offensively. Starks will see his 8-10 touches and maybe more given how the game plays out. Starks is a RB4 in most leagues, but in deep leagues his 50-60 yards and scoring potential is appealing.
