Green Bay Packers running back James Starks (knee) was held out of practice on Thursday. Starks has played in just six games this season and has been out for Green Bay since Week 13. Alex Green is on the injury report with a concussion but is practicing in full.
Starks has 71 carries this season for 255 yards and a touchdown. Green leads the Packers with 464 yards rushing on 135 carries with 125 receiving yards. Green Bay plays the Minnesota Vikings in Week 17.
Fantasy Take: Still not a lot of fantasy value in the Packers backfield. Even as the primary ball carrier for much of the season, Alex Green is scoreless. He would not be a strong play this week.
