    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (concussion) did not practice Friday, Dec. 30, and has been ruled out for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: With Starks out, Ty Montgomery is worth a look as a high-risk, high-reward flex play in Week 17.

  • Posted: 12/17/2016 3:32pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (concussion) will not play in Week 15 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: It's not a surprise after Starks was involved in a car accident earlier this week. His absence should open door for Ty Montgomery to become the lead back, while Christine Michael steals between five and 10 touches. Montgomery should be considered a strong flex in frigid Chicago, but Michael should not be starting for any owners in the fantasy semifinals.

  • Posted: 11/28/2016 9:20pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks rushed 17 times for 41 yards in the Week 12 game against the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, Nov. 28. He also added five receptions for 27 yards on his five targets.

    Huddle Up: Starks had a season high in rushing yardage, but that's not saying much. He is still nothing more than a low-end RB3 in all fantasy formats heading into Week 13 against the Houston Texans.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 4:59pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) returned to the lineup in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans. He rushed seven times for a team-high 33 yards and he added three grabs for 11 yards and a touchdown on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Starks' return is very welcome, as they had been using WR Ty Montgomery in the backfield out of necessity due to injury concerns. Starks faces a good fantasy matchup when the Packers travel to Washington in Week 11.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 6:25am ET

    The Green Bay Packers are hopeful that RB James Starks (knee) can play in Week 10's game against the Tennessee Titans but a final decision about his status will not be made until after he participates in warmups, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Starks was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and is likely to see just a handful of carries in his first game back from knee surgery. He should only be considered as a possible flex option in deep seasonal leagues.

  • Posted: 11/11/2016 1:44pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) was a limited participant at practice for the third consecutive day Friday, Nov. 11.

    Huddle Up: It looks like Starks will be able to make his return from knee surgery in Week 10, but owners might want to use some caution, as his usage will be unknown in his first game back. Ty Montgomery has emerged as the starting running back in Green Bay and figures to take on a regular workload this weekend, which could mean Starks will be saddled with very limited opportunities. He deserves consideration as a flex option only in deeper formats.

  • Posted: 11/10/2016 2:38pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

    Huddle Up: It looks like Starks is primed to make his return to the field against the Tennessee Titans. Of course, don't expect him to receive a full complement of carries upon his return. The most likely scenario is that he and Ty Montgomery will split touches. As is the case with many returns from injury, it might be best to wait on Starks for at least a week.

  • Posted: 11/10/2016 10:47am ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) participated in contact drills during the media access portion of practice Thursday, Nov. 10. He should have a decent chance to play in Week 10 unless he suffers a setback.

    Huddle Up: It is not known if Starks would have to share carries with Ty Montgomery or if he would receive a majority of the carries if he plays in Week 10. There is a decent chance that he will be eased back into the offense, which would hurt his fantasy value. Owners could consider him as a flex option if he is active.

  • Posted: 11/9/2016 3:10pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE James Starks (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: Starks' status for Week 10 is not known at this point, but it is a good sign that he is able to do things during practice. It is not known how many carries he would receive if he plays in Week 10 but could be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 11/4/2016 1:54pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) has been ruled out for Week 9 versus the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Starks appears to be trending toward a Week 10 return. His impending return seems to have created quite a stir given his likely status as the lead back in a good offense and the state of his position in the fantasy world, but Starks was horrible (1.8 yards per carry) prior to his injury. Ty Montgomery could easily remain the starter for the rest of the year if he can stay healthy, meaning Starks isn't exactly a must-add when he is cleared.

  • Posted: 11/3/2016 8:49am ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) will be a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

    Huddle Up: If Starks can suit up, he figures to be a decent flex option as decimated as the team is at the position. The Indianapolis Colts haven't been good against opposing running backs, and if Starks can even see a 50 percent share, he'd make a good flex play.

  • Posted: 11/2/2016 9:33am ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) will be limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 2.

    Huddle Up: It'll be the first time he has practiced since knee surgery, which he had about two-and-a-half weeks ago. He's pretty iffy for the Week 9 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Posted: 10/17/2016 3:34pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) is expected to miss around four weeks after undergoing knee surgery this past weekend. The Packers is considering Starks week-to-week at this point.

    Huddle Up: Eddie Lacy will receive a lot of work while Starks is sidelined, but he is also dealing with an injury. Owners should keep an eye on Lacy's practice participation this week to make sure he will be able to play in Week 7. He should be a starting option in all leagues if he is healthy.

  • Posted: 10/17/2016 2:41pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) sat out of practice Monday, Oct. 17. The Packers did not practice; Starks' status is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Starks' fantasy value hinges on the availability of Eddie Lacy, but Starks' own health is also not at 100 percent. If Green Bay's running backs are limited this week, then they could look to pass more against the Chicago Bears on Thursday night. Keep tabs on the progress of Starks and Lacy over the next couple of days before making any lineup decisions.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 10:36am ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) underwent knee surgery Sunday, Oct. 16, and will miss several weeks.

    Huddle Up: The Packers likely will add another running back in the near future, but Eddie Lacy will receive most of the work at running back until Starks returns. Lacy should be a weekly starter for owners as long as he can stay healthy.

  • Posted: 10/15/2016 12:40pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) could miss multiple weeks because of his knee injury. The Packers do not know the severity of the injury at this point because Starks was away from the team this week because of a personal issue. It is believed that Starks has a meniscus injury, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation because Eddie Lacy could see more touches if Starks is out for a while. Lacy should be a weekly starting option in most leagues and is a solid starting candidate this week.

  • Posted: 10/15/2016 12:04pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) has been ruled out for the team's Week 6 game.

    Huddle Up: Eddie Lacy likely will be able to play and will see a lot of playing time with Starks out of the lineup. Owners in all leagues should consider Lacy a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 running back this week.

  • Posted: 10/14/2016 1:17pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 14, and is listed as questionable for Week 6. The Packers did not practice Friday, so this is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Starks has been away from the team this week because of a personal issue, so he may be a game-time decision. He has received limited playing time this season and probably is not a great fantasy option even if he plays.

  • Posted: 10/13/2016 2:25pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 13.

    Huddle Up: Even if Starks is healthy enough to play, he would only have legitimate value if Eddie Lacy is ruled out, and that doesn't seem likely at this point. If Starks suits up, it's best to leave him on the bench in a hard matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Posted: 10/13/2016 9:08am ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee, personal) is away from the team because of a death in his family and will not return until Saturday, Oct. 15. He also suffered his knee injury during a workout Tuesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Starks could be a game-time decision for the team's Week 6 game, so owners will need to check the inactive list. Starks' value will depend on the availability of Eddie Lacy. If Starks plays and Lacy does not, he could be a No. 2 running back or a flex option. If Lacy does play, Starks would only be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 10/12/2016 3:25pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: The severity of Starks' injury is uncertain at this point, so owners should look for more on his status over the next day or two. Starks could be a flex option if he and Eddie Lacy plays in Week 6 but would have more value if he plays and Lacy is ruled out. Owners may want to look for other options to use.
