James Starks strikes paydirt in exhibition game
by Igor Mello |

With Eddie Lacy sidelined, Packers running back James Starks got the start and found the end zone during Saturday's preseason opener against the Titans at LP Field.

Starks broke a 20-yard touchdown run with 10:34 remaining in the first quarter. He had six carries for 49 yards and a touchdown, averaging 8.2 yards per attempt. Starks is expected to serve as Lacy's backup heading into the start of the season.

by Igor Mello |

The Packers are interested in bringing back free agent running back James Starks, according to ESPN. Both sides appear to be closing in on a two-year deal.

Starks rushed for 493 yards with three rushing touchdowns while averaging 5.5 yards per carry last season. He also had 10 receptions, including one for a touchdown. He'll wind up in a crowded backfield with Eddie Lacy, DuJuan Harris and Johnathan Franklin.

James Starks primed to bust out
by Larry Hartstein |

When it comes to running backs -- as Senior Fantasy Writer Dave Richard preaches – it’s all about touches. That's why it's exciting to think about James Starks in 2014.

The Packers would love him back, but they'll get outbid by needier teams. Potential landing spots include the Giants, Browns and Titans, assuming Chris Johnson is released. New York makes sense as Starks hails from Niagara Falls, played college ball at Buffalo and is familiar with new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo from their time in Green Bay.

Even in a timeshare, Starks would draw far more than the 89 carries he had last year.

Starks averaged a career-high 5.5 yards per carry and ranked seventh with 0.46 Fantasy points per opportunity -- the number of points per carries and pass routes run, per Pro Football Focus. He forced 22 missed tackles on 99 touches, the fourth-best rate among RBs with fewer than 100 touches.

Starks turns 28 this month but has little tread on his tires. He showed a burst last season that reminded us of the back who ran for 415 yards in Green Bay's four-game run to the Super Bowl title.

“James Starks is definitely someone I look at as a starter and the ability to run as many times in a football game as needed,” coach Mike McCarthy said after Starks totaled 168 yards from scrimmage Week 2 vs. Washington.
