Eddie Lacy, James Starks could split carries to start season

Eddie-Lacy-slim

There may be something of a running back by committee in the Green Bay Packers backfield this season.

ESPN’s Rob Demovsky appeared on SiriusXM’s Next Level Fantasy Football show and told host Mike Clay that the Packers could use Eddie Lacy and James Starks to split carries, particularly at the start of the season.

Starks rushed for a career high 601 yards in 2015, which worked out to 4.1 yards per carry. Lacy’s conditioning issues meant Starks got his chance to impress, and he signed a new contract with the team in March, so he’s definitely in their plans.

That said, Lacy has worked on his fitness during the offseason, so the hope is he will be able to regain his peak form. If he does, the Packers will have a very impressive one-two punch out of their backfield.
