RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Starks will be competing for a spot on the roster for the Packers with the crowd at the running back position after starting two games last season.

2012

Part of a rotation, Starks managed just 794 yards from scrimmage with only one touchdown in 2011. He continued to battle injuries, so durability remains a legitimate concern moving forward. However, despite getting just 133 rushing attempts, Starks’ 27 broken tackles were 15th most among all backs, and he plays in an offense that averaged an NFL-high 35 points per game last year. Green Bay didn’t select an RB in the draft and isn’t expected to bring back Ryan Grant, so a healthy Starks could pay big dividends in fantasy leagues.

2011

Starks wasn’t able to take advantage of Ryan Grant’s season-ending ankle injury last year because he, too, was battling a hamstring strain that had him open the year on the PUP. In fact, it was something of a miracle he didn’t land on IR. Apparently, the team knew it had something in the sixth-round pick, and its patience was rewarded when Starks became the team’s workhorse in the playoffs, averaging 20.3 carries per game. While his 3.9 YPC mark doesn’t jump out, he faced stiff competition and passed the “eye test.” He also has his coaches’ confidence, so if Starks can prove durable, he can play a big role in Green Bay’s backfield in 2011. Just keep in mind Grant will be back, and third-round draft pick Alex Green could be in the mix as well.

2010

Starks was taken in the sixth round of the 2010 draft. He missed his final year of college due to a shoulder injury, but could be a decent sleeper. He'll compete with Brandon Jackson for a backup running back spot.
