James Starks questionable with a knee injury, Packers RB situation becoming messy in fantasy

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

James Starks is questionable with a knee injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Packers running back James Starks suffered a knee injury on Sunday and is questionable to return. He is being checked on by the training staff.

The Packers are running out of bodies in the backfield. Eddie Lacy went down last week with a concussion, but there's a good chance he could be ready to return upon the Packers Week 5 game after their bye. Starks wasn't ruled out right away, so he may have not suffered a serious injury. Of course, that's all speculation and they team may have to give him an MRI.

Jonathan Franklin has looked terrific so far. He had a TD on a stretch play for two yards. The rookie has 20 carries on four carries. Plus, he's a capable back out of the backfield.

Fantasy impact: The Packers tried to make it a competition with Franklin and Lacy, but that was put to bed quickly. Since the Pack have a bye, there's almost no chance they'll be without Lacy and Starks in Week 5. We'd leave Franklin on the wire in most leagues.
