2016 Outlook: Fantasy Handcuff

Last updated on Dec-03-2016 by Shawn Childs


Update 12/03/16

Over the last two games, Starks has 36 touches for 139 combined yards with 10 catches and a TD. Even with a rising opportunity, James gained only 2.5 yards per rush. Last week he was on the field for 54 of 71 plays. The Packers have two rushing TDs by the RB position in 2016 with the fullback stealing one last week. Houston has been hot and cold defending RBs over the last five games (34.70, 29.00, 15.00, 46.40, and 12.90). The Texans allow 4.1 yards per rush with RBs scoring 12 TDs (no rushing TDs allowed in the last four games with each team gaining 80 yards or fewer). Starks will be the least of Houston's focus this week plus so he may slip through the cracks for a solid game. His increased role in the passing game gives him a reasonable floor, but the Packers need to block better in the run game.

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
12.07 Corey Parson - Trusty handcuff to Eddie Lacy, Starks is mandatory for lacy owners.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
15.10 Scout Fantasy - Armando Marsal - I like Lacy this season, but also liked him last season and he had weight issues. If that happens again, Starks could be the starting back in this really good offense. He combined for 993 yards last season and caught 43 passes. The Packers resigned him for a reason.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
13.02 Draft Sharks - Jared Smola - Just in case Eddie Lacy succumbs again to the allure of Taco Bell.
