Packers | James Starks to see more work
Tue, 29 Oct 2013 16:13:55 -0700

The Green Bay Packers would like to limit the burden on RB Eddie Lacy by giving RB James Starks more carries. Starks had seven rushes for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Minnesota Vikings in his first game back since suffering a partially torn medial collateral ligament in his knee last month. Lacy still finished the game with a season-high 29 carries for 94 yards and a score. "Eddie was in a groove so we stayed the way we did and obviously it worked out well," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "When James got his opportunity, I thought he jumped in there and made an impact. He was running hard, downhill, not wasting any steps. He had good reads. That's why the attempts and things like that, you look at it week to week. I would have liked to have James Starks get a few more carries."

Starks is now worth adding off the waiver wire for running back depth or as a handcuff to Lacy. The Packers are a different team these days after losing both Randall Cobb and Jermichael Finley. Look for them to run the ball more than ever, making Lacy a must-start and Starks an option in deep leagues.
