James Starks sidelined 'multiple weeks': Fantasy Implications

Chris Trotman

Green Bay Packers running back James Starks will be sidelined multiple weeks. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers running back James Starks will be sidelined multiple weeks," per Tyler Dunne. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy confirmed as much on Wednesday -- the morning the team re-signed former RB Ryan Grant.

Alex Green is now expected to lead the Packers' running backs in an attack-by-comittee.

Fantasy Analysis: Since it appears Starks will be done for the regular season (at least), his worth as a fantasy option is just about over for 2012. Starks was a low-end flex option at best in the Packers' pass-heavy offense.

At this point, Alex Green is the only player in the Packers worth putting in your lineup. Even with the arrival of Grant, the Packers still won't emphasize the run.
