2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: James Starks, RB, Green Bay Packers

2010 Stats
 101 rush yds.
0 rush TDs
5 rec. / 74 yds.
0 rec. TDs
2011 Projected
 595 rush yds.
5 rush TDs
10 rec. / 90 yds.
0 rec. TDs

After missing most his rookie season with a hamstring injury, Starks became the Packers most relevant running back late in the season. Starks finished the regular season with just 29 carries for 101 yards, but nearly tripled those numbers in the playoffs - carrying the ball 81 times for 315 yards and a touchdown. Despite is increased role late last year, Starks is not a lock to play a significant role for the Packers in 2011. With the return of Ryan Grant from injury and the arrival of Alex Green, whom the Packers drafted in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft, Starks may be the odd man out.
