James Starks stays relevant for fantasy owners with score on Monday Night Football

Green Bay Packers running back James Starks celebrates a touchdown against the Chicago Bears - Mike McGinnis

Green Bay running back James Starks rushed for 40 yards on six carries and added a score in the Week 9 loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Green Bay running back James Starks rushed for 40 yards on six carries plus a score in the Week 9 loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. It is the second week in a row Starks has found the end zone and despite limited carries he is doing damage in the run game. On the year, he has 47 carries for 284 yards and three touchdowns despite missing several games. He also has five receptions for 44 yards.

Fantasy impact: With Rodgers injured, the Green Bay running game becomes more important than ever. The extent isn't known but the Packers have been successful running the football this year. Starks is averaging over six yards per carry and is still a big part of the running game. While not as solid as Eddie Lacy, Starks should still be considered a solid fantasy play in most leagues. The Packers will face the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10.
