Packers RB James Starks...

"He's in midseason form," running backs coach Sam Gash said. "He runs as angry as he did last year. He runs with a purpose."

While Eddie Lacy and his Packers' rookie rushing record of 1,178 yards received all the attention, Starks had the most productive of his four NFL seasons. He averaged 5.5 yards per carry, more than a yard better than his previous best of 4.3 in 2011.

As long as Lacy is healthy, Starks, who not long ago was viewed as a possible long-term starter, will be No. 2 in Green Bay.

Fantasy Impact: 

Starks is going very late in fantasy drafts, but he's productive when given touches and is the clear handcuff to Lacy. Lacy owners should make it a point to draft Starks in the waning rounds.
