Packers' James Starks: 17 rushes Monday

Starks ran 17 times for 41 yards and caught five passes (on five targets) for 27 yards in Monday night's win over the Eagles.

Starks once again struggled to find running lanes, as he's now averaged over 2.8 yards per carry in just one game this season. While that average isn't conducive to fantasy success, Starks at least got a season-high 17 carries Monday, as the Packers killed the clock with long drives late. Additionally, he caught all five passes thrown his way, accounting for a handful of receptions for the second straight game. Although his two-game touchdown streak was snapped Monday, when fullback Aaron Ripkowski vultured a one-yard score in the fourth quarter, Starks' Week 12 usage is at least encouraging ahead of this Sunday's matchup against the Texans.
