Packers re-sign RB James Starks

Running back James Starks re-signed with the only team he's known during his four-year NFL career late Monday night. The Packers and Starks agreed to a two-year contract.

FANTASY ANALYSIS: Starks probably wasn't going to find a starting gig elsewhere, so he returns to being one of the better backup RBs in the league. He gets hurt a lot -- he's never played more than 13 games in any season -- but he's a decisive runner and a...
