James Starks is without a team as of this writing. Until that changes, and until he gets an opportunity for a decent amount of playing time again, Fantasy owners shouldn't bother adding him.
Starks (concussion) has been waived by the Packers with a non-football-injury designation, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Starks was only able to take the field for nine games this season, ending the year on concussion protocol. The 30-year-old running back rushed for a measly 145 yards on 63 carries while recording in 19 receptions for 134 yards and two touchdowns in those nine contests. Starks' role on offense quickly diminished due to injuries and the emergence of Ty Montgomery as the new quick-paced, pass-catching target out of the backfield. The veteran now heads into free agency after spending the past seven seasons in Green Bay, the only place he has called home over his NFL career. It remains unseen how much Starks has left in the tank, especially when you factor in his injury plagued 2016 campaign, but he could find his way onto a team in need of a third-down back.
Starks (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's playoff game against the Cowboys. Starks has been sidelined entirely since suffering a concussion during a Dec. 12 car accident. At this point, it appears unlikely he'll play again this season, even if the Packers advance beyond Sunday's game.
Starks (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's playoff game against the Giants. Starks still hasn't practiced since suffering a concussion during a Dec. 12 car accident. As a result, him remaining out of contention to play is no surprise, but it's worth wondering whether he'll be available should the Packers advance further than Sunday's contest.
Starks (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Lions. Starks hasn't practiced since suffering a concussion after being involved in a car accident Dec. 12. With him slated to miss a third straight game, Christine Michael will once again serve as Ty Montgomery's only backup at tailback, although fullback Aaron Ripkowski has proven capable of filling snaps when needed.
Starks (concussion) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Vikings. Starks was unable to practice this week, which will prevent him from playing for the second straight game Saturday. His absence will leave Christine Michael as Ty Montgomery's primary backup versus Minnesota.
