James Starks saw more carries than Alex Green in Week 9. We break down the fantasy implications.
James Starks carried the ball 17 times for 61 yards against the Cardinals in Week 9, while Alex Green saw 11 carries for 53 yards on the afternoon. Mike McCarthy has backed up Green lately, but it appears the Packers would like to get others involved in the backfield.
Starks finished with just one carry last week, so his workload this time around came as a bit of a surprise.
Fantasy Impact: A Packers running back isn't exactly a fantasy gem these days. Green hasn't been effective since taking over for the injured Cedric Benson, so it's clear the Packers are looking for any kind of help they can find for the ground game.
Don't expect Starks to hold much value. Green Bay is off next week, so be sure to check on the details of the running back situation going forward.
