Thoughts are outside of Lacy no Packers RB is worth owning.

This. I was high on Starks coming in, but he hasn't shown much with his opportunities. If Lacy goes down I would expect them to do what they did last year when Ced Ben went down and just throw it.

He would be catching a lot of passes presumably..isn't that worth something in a PPR?

Baller
And all the greatest of the heroes
Started jumping from the books
They started wearing ones and zeros
Looking more and more like crooks
They stole the sunlight from the future
Took a sip, drank half the glass then put it back

Actually, he's horrible at catching passes. That's why they never used him as their 3rd-down RB. During their Superbowl run, Starks was their 1st and 2nd-down back, Brandon Jackson was their 3rd-down back.

He has ZERO value in a PPR.

I'd roster Franklin ahead of Starks at this point.

Apparently Kuhn is going to be their 3rd-down RB. Not because he's such a great pass catcher but right now he's their best pass blocker. And that's not even close. Franklin has looked very unimpressive so far according to the beat writers. He's having a hard time adjusting to the NFL.

Yep. There were rumors of him being on the roster bubble. He has a LONG ways to go before being fantasy relevant.

Starks' line ended pretty decent. Depends on how long Lacy will be out I guess

I'll probably put a claim in, but I wonder if this ends in a platoon if Lacy is out for multiple weeks - Kuhn has been productive for GB in the past, and as bad as Franklin looked in the pre-season, they must have some faith in him based on where they selected him. Also, as good as Starks looked today, I'm beginning to think the Redskins D might be a frequent victim for offenses all year.

The problem I have with naming Starks as "the top waiver claim" is that Lacy will be back sooner than later, and you're not even guaranteed that Starks will be a plug-and-play for next week.

The Skins D was completely gassed because their offense couldn't stay on the field. Next week will be a much bigger test against that Bengals DL.

At this point in time I'll drop Ingram for him, but If I go 2-0, which is how it's shaping up, he'll probably go ahead of me. So I will probably prioritize Royal and drop Thompkins.
