That's certainly the most likely scenario. But I think there is another one. Starks is pretty straightline runner. He's got a little wiggle to him, but I'd put him somewhere between Turner and Mendenhall as far as style of runner. The Packers have a rookie who much more of a Charles/Johnson style runner (note style...not talent). If the Packers are up by a quite a bit, he could see a lot of time in the second half and looks far more explosive than either Grant or Starks. And, like overreaction from a preaseason game, there will be a thread about him in this forum.
Starks is a good play this week - I'm not arguing that - but I would really caution people from becoming enamored by whatever they see on Sunday. It likely will turn on its head the following week. The Packers running game is not what you want to hitch your fantasy wagon to.
