2016 Outlook: Fantasy Handcuff

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


Starks took advantage of the failure of Lacy to post his best season in his six-year NFL career. He finished with 993 combined yards with five TDs and 43 catches. James had 191 touches compared to 207 by slow Eddie. His success is intriguing, but it could also be a trap. In 2013 and 2014, he averaged 101 touches per season. Last year the Packers' RBs had 376 rushes for 1519 yards and six TDs plus 70 catches for 654 yards and five more TDs on 93 targets. Starks in a nice insurance policy, but he will most likely see one-third of the RB action, which projected to be between 135 and 150 touches. It's easy to draft last season's stats, but a Fantasy owner will get paid on each player's success in 2016. As the 55th RB off the board in PPR leagues, James is priced well to buy as a handcuff to Lacy.

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.
