Eddie Lacy keeps James Starks at bay
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though Packers running James Starks impressed as a change-of-pace option and, later, injury fill-in for starter Eddie Lacy in Week 14, he was back to playing strictly a backup role with Lacy full-go Week 15 at Buffalo, rushing four times for 19 yards.

And really, you should have expected as much. Week 14 was Lacy's third game in four with at least 90 rushing yards. He has not just one touchdown, but two, in three of his last five. He's back to being the first-round back you drafted him to be.

Starks, with his average of 4.2 yards per carry, is a fine handcuff option, and you certainly weren't wrong to add him given the concern over Lacy's hip, but yeah, Lacy is here to stay, putting up stud numbers even against a Bills defense that entered the day ranked eighth against the run.

Packers receive contributions from several role players vs. Bills
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Packers received contributions from several role players during Sunday's defeat to the Bills in Week 15.

Backup running back James Starks rushed for 19 yards on four carries and caught one of three targets for 10 yards. Andrew Quarless and Davante Adams were each targeted four times but finished with only one grab. Quarless caught one pass for a 7-yard gain, while Adams came down with a 6-yard reception. Jarrett Boykin and Richard Rodgers were each held without a grab.

Packers RB Eddie Lacy's status for Sunday remains unceratin
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Packers running back Eddie Lacy's status for Sunday's game remains uncertain, reports the Press-Gazette Media on Thursday. Lacy has been a limited participant in practice this week due to a hip injury he suffered Monday night against Atlanta.

CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported earlier in the week that Green Bay will be cautious with their second-year back moving forward. If he's unable to play, the team will turn to James Starks for the start.

"It all depends on how my body feels," Lacy said. "If I can go out and play through that pain without setting the team back or putting the team at a disadvantage, I'll go out and do that. If not, then I'm not going to risk that."

James Starks' worth hinges on Eddie Lacy's health
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Packers running back Eddie Lacy was cruising against the Falcons in Week 14, piling up 106 total yards on 13 carries and five catches, when a bruised hip forced him out of the game in the fourth quarter.

And by forced, I mean forced. In his own words, "I tried, but no."

Which allowed backup running back James Starks to ice the game with a 41-yard run on the team's next and final drive. That's where he got the majority of his 75 rushing yards. He also got four of his 10 carries on that one drive.

Which isn't to say he was an afterthought before then. He got six carries and two catches and even scored the teams' first touchdown of the day on a 3-yard run in the first quarter. But is he explosive enough to make an impact in Fantasy with only 8-10 touches? He hadn't been before Week 14.

That's why I think Lacy will actually have to miss time with this hip injury for Starks to be worth your while in Fantasy, and at this early stage of preparation for Week 15 at Buffalo, he says he won't. Obviously, Starks is worth adding just in case, but you shouldn't get your hopes up.

Eddie Lacy, James Starks combine for 207 yards, 3 TDs
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Packers running backs Eddie Lacy and James Starks enjoyed similarly productive efforts in Monday's win over Atlanta. Lacy ran 13 times for 73 yards (5.6 ypc) and a touchdown, while Starks carried 10 times for 75 yards (7.5 ypc) and a score.

Lacy caught five of nine targets for 33 yards and another touchdown, while Starks secured both his targets for 26 yards.

Lacy has gone over 100 yards from scrimmage in six straight games and he's up to 11 total touchdowns. He's averaged at least 4.7 yards per carry in four consecutive games.

Starks, his backup, received double-digit carries for only the second time this season as Green Bay played with a big lead most of the night.

They'll both visit the Bills in Week 15.
