James Starks RB GB 5 Days

Starks had seven carries for three yards and four receptions for 22 yards in Sunday's victory over the Buccaneers.

Starks saw a little extra work with teammate Eddie Lacy (calf) banged up, but he couldn't get much going on the ground or through the air. Lacy should be good to go for next Sunday, and the Packers will be playing for a first-round bye, so expect Starks to play his usual bit role in Week 17.

Starks had four carries for 19 yards and one reception for 10 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

Starks saw added work in Week 14 with the Packers ahead for most of the game and Eddie Lacy hurting, but he played his usual reserve role Sunday in a more competitive game with Lacy feeling and running well. Lacy made it through Sunday's game without setback, so Starks figures to play a minimal role again in Week 16.

Starks did a good portion of his damage on the game's final drive, when he piled up 43 yards on five carries, led by a single 41-yard tote. He entered that drive with five carries for 32 yards, highlighted by a three-yard scoring run on the game's opening drive.
