Green Bay Packers running back James Starks did not practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Running back James Starks did not practice on Wednesday for the Green Bay Packers. Starks is still recovering from a turf toe injury, clearing the way for Cedric Benson to start and for Alex Green to be his backup in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: There were rumors last month that Starks might not even make the team, but the Packers must still think he will be able to help at some point. Benson is the Packers back that fantasy owners will want to use for Week 1, but he isn't a great start against the 49ers defense. Starks is someone to keep in mind later in the season if Green Bay isn't getting a lot of production from its running game.
