Green Bay Packers running back James Starks ran for 132 yards on 20 carries in the Packers' 38-20 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 2. Starks became the go to guy in the Packers' backfield when Eddie Lacy suffered a concussion on a helmet-to-helmet hit from Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather on his first and only carry of the game.
Fantasy impact: Much has been made about the fact that Eddie Lacy represents the present and the future of the Packers' rushing attack. That said, the affects of concussions and the recent settlement of concussion related lawsuits by the NFL and its former players pretty well guarantees Lacy will be closely monitored over the coming days. Starks looked great in place of Lacy and fantasy owners should look to add him to their roster immediately if possible
