2014 Outlook: The NFL's offensive rookie of the year in 2013 was this 230-pound ball of thunder with soft receiving hands who carried the Packers while Aaron Rodgers was out with a broken clavicle. Lacy's running style is reminiscent of Larry Johnson's, and you'll recall that LJ had a dominant fantasy stretch in the mid-2000s. In truth, Lacy has a combination of talent and every-down opportunity that could make him the No. 1 player in fantasy by season's end. The reason we don't quite rank him there? He's done it for only one season.
2014 Outlook: Starks is a less agile, less explosive version of Eddie Lacy, so it makes sense that the Packers re-signed him this winter to back up their second-year star. More than anything, this transaction signals Green Bay's lack of faith in Johnathan Franklin, despite his potential as a nice change-of-pace receiving back. So if you make a first-round investment in Lacy, the handcuff you want is Starks, a more consistent player who's lost only one fumble in four seasons.
