James Starks Injury Update: Back won't play, Alex Green is back in the fantasy saddle

US PRESSWIRE

James Starks could miss a couple weeks. Should you feel comfortable in starting Alex Green?

James Starks (knee) did not practice this week and has been ruled out against the Lions on Sunday. Coach Mike McCarthy said that Starks could miss multiple games.

Starks was coming off a TD game last week, but there is a good chance that his season stats may be 255 rushing yards and that aforementioned score.

Fantasy Impact: Starks was finally mustering up some value, but this injury is obviously a crippling blow. He doesn't have a high enough upside to stash in most leagues and we would cut him loose in most circumstances.

Alex Green should be close to featured for Green Bay's rushing game, but there's not too much to like here since Aaron Rodgers should be slinging it against the soft Lions secondary. Green should be viewed as a nice flex.
