James Starks (RB, GB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add immediately in all leagues.

ANALYSIS: With Eddie Lacy leaving Week Two with a concussion, Starks made the most of his opportunity to head Green Bay’s rushing attack. The versatile Starks ran roughshod over the suspect Redskins’ defense to the tune of 132 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. He also added 36 receiving yards on four catches. With the severity of Lacy’s injury still unknown, Starks’s strong showing should have earned an increased role in the Packers’ rushing attack even if Lacy is ready to go in Week Three. Should Lacy miss time bogged down in the NFL’s dreaded concussion protocols, Starks has clearly earned the right to carry the Pack’s run game Week Three versus Cincinnati.
