Packers RB Eddie Lacy (rib, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 17. Lacy was seen holding his ribs after scoring a touchdown against the Cardinals. As long as he’s productive, he should see a good workload against the Vikings, but a hard hit on the ribs could lead to more touches for James Starks.

Scouting Report

Week 19 at Arizona
Starks had 12 carries for 53 yards and a score and also caught a pair of passes for 12 yards, getting one more touch than Eddie Lacy in their time share. That's likely to continue with anyone's best guess being which one is more valuable. Starks is the better receiving option, so he is slightly more valuable in PPR leagues. He got just three carries against the Cardinals a couple of weeks ago, losing a fumble. But the Packers will use both, meaning you should likely use neither.
