How about that James Starks!
Beginning in Week 5 (when Starks was close to being activated from the physically unable to perform, or PUP, list), I had my eye on the Green Bay Packers running back. It was obvious then that the Packers needed backfield help; reliable Ryan Grant was lost for the season in Week 1, and Brandon Jackson is more of a helpful third-down type. At least Starks, a sixth-round pick in the 2010 draft who didn't even play his senior year at University of Buffalo because of a shoulder injury, was on our radar at that time. All he was missing was opportunities.
