Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - [Full Article]

Packers RB James Starks debuted in Week 12 but didn't play more than 24 snaps in a game until the playoffs, when he averaged 37.3. Having sat out the first 11 games with a pulled hamstring, Starks had fresh legs compared with everyone else. That should be a factor in evaluating his strong, 110-carry, 416-yard (3.8) rookie season. Remarkably, he didn't have a fumble, penalty or dropped pass. His blitz pickup wasn't bad, either. Despite rare height (6-2) for the position, he kept his pad level down and didn't take many vicious hits. He ran hard, usually was able to lunge forward and got north-south most of the time. It's possible Starks has more balance and wiggle than Grant, but Grant packs more punch.
