For the first time since 2009 -- the last year Green Bay had a 1,000-yard rusher -- the Packers might give their running game more than a passing glance. That's because Starks appears capable of a breakout season. The key with Starks, as always, will be health. "He looks great. Looks great," HC Mike McCarthy said of Starks recently. "Some guys just hit that injury phase in their careers and just have to work themselves out of it. Starks has some of that. He's had some tough challenges just getting hurt."

According to Journal Sentinel staffer Rob Reischel, Starks has the physical gifts to be the best back McCarthy has coached in Green Bay. But injuries have been a long-standing problem. At the University of Buffalo, Starks dealt with hamstring issues and a mild concussion in 2006; a broken hand, hip and turf toe injuries in 2008; and a torn labrum in his left shoulder that sidelined him for his entire senior season in 2009. Starks missed 13 regular season games during his rookie year with the Packers in 2010, due primarily to hamstring injuries. Then in 2011, Starks missed three regular season games with an ankle injury. When Starks has been healthy, he's produced. But staying on the field has been a six-year struggle now and it's why his current ADP is lower than Beanie Wells' and Jahvid Best's.
