Huddle Up: Lacy showed enough in the passing game, both as a receiver and in pass protection, to indicate he's capable of being a three-down back. And if Lacy stays on the field all three downs in that offense, he's knocking on the door of the elite fantasy backs.

Huddle Up: Lacy set Pack rookie records with 284 carries and 11 rushing TDs
while leading all 2013 rookies with 1,178 rushing and 1,435 yards
from scrimmage. He had some injury issues but only missed 1 game and
figures to be a solid RB1 on 2014 fantasy draft boards.

Huddle Up: Lacy and fellow 2013 rookie Jonathan Franklin have to be regarded as the only 2 RB mainstays for the Pack next season, and it's hard to envision both Harris and James Starks both returning to a crowded backfield.
Posted: 1/3/2014 2:43pm et
Huddle Up: Lacy was lightly used in the earlier meeting between these squads; with a full season of NFL experience under his belt, he is expected to be a significantly larger factor this time around.
Posted: 1/2/2014 5:21pm et
Huddle Up: The Pack are going to take it fairly easy with the rookie in practice, but look for him to give it a full go Sunday afternoon against the Niners.

Huddle Up: Lacy shared more than usual with James Starks in the Packers' win over Chicago, but it sounds like he'll be back to his usual heavy workload when the 49ers come to Green Bay in the first round of the playoffs.

Huddle Up: He's been a question mark since departing the Week 16 game early, but Lacy figures to be good to go Sunday in a juicy matchup against the league's worst run defense (161.5 yards allowed per game) by a wide margin. That also means James Starks goes from hot waiver-wire commodity to the bench.
Posted: 12/26/2013 11:18pm et
Huddle Up: Lacy hasn't practiced this week, but the Pack -- and his fantasy owners -- would rather him rest up for Sunday. Continue to keep tabs on the situation but expect him to play.
Posted: 12/25/2013 5:44pm et
Huddle Up: Keep monitoring him this week. James Starks would be an excellent start if Lacy can't go.
Posted: 12/24/2013 12:56am et
Huddle Up: Lacy was at least able to provide his fantasy owners with 90 total yards and 2 rushing scores on Sunday before departing late in the third quarter. Check back Thursday to see if Lacy's prognosis looks any rosier.
Posted: 12/20/2013 6:16pm et
Huddle Up: Keep rolling with the rookie who has four double-digit fantasy games in his last five outings.
Posted: 12/19/2013 4:20pm et
Huddle Up: Count on starting Lacy on Sunday if you need him going against a spotty Steeler run defense ranked 19th in the league with an average of 115.6 yards allowed per game.
Posted: 12/12/2013 4:52pm et
Huddle Up: This sounds anything but promising for Lacy, who has missed both of the team's practices this week. We'll know a lot more, of course, Friday, but in the meantime, James' Starks' value is headed due north.
Posted: 12/11/2013 5:12pm et
Huddle Up: Monitor this situation. James Starks could still see a big workload if Lacy is gimpy heading into Sunday.
Posted: 12/11/2013 9:11am et
Huddle Up: Starks had a brief run of success earlier this season and would be primed to do so again with a favorable matchup against a struggling Cowboys defense. However, Lacy has not yet been ruled out for this week.
Posted: 12/9/2013 5:54pm et
Huddle Up: Monitor his status throughout the week.
Posted: 12/9/2013 12:52am et
Huddle Up: Hopefully it's not a lingering issue for Lacy, but he was unable to take full advantage of his incredible matchup.
Posted: 11/25/2013 11:14am et
Huddle Up: Something to keep in mind, given that Lacy will be playing on grass in the cold as a member of the Packers. Lacy played well, but had to leave the field and cede carries to James Starks.
Posted: 11/22/2013 8:49pm et
Huddle Up: Lacy is still a RB1 and a Top 10 fantasy option this week against Minnesota. Regardless of what the coaches say, Lacy is too talented to keep off the field for a long period of time.
Posted: 11/21/2013 7:49pm et
Huddle Up: Lacy was at least able to salvage something out of his Week 11 showing by scoring on a 4-yard run in the 4th quarter. See if things get better this Sunday vs. the Vikings, who've surrendered the sixth most fantasy points to opposing RBs this season, If not, Lacy's fantasy owners will need to wish Rodgers a speedier recovery.
Posted: 11/5/2013 10:49pm et
Huddle Up: Lacy has emerged as one of fantasy's top backs, and ever since missing Week 3 with a concussion, he has at least 82 yards rushing in his past 5 games and has scored a TD in each of his past 3 outings.
Posted: 11/5/2013 12:39am et
Huddle Up: It was a career game for the rookie, who has rushed for a league-high 545 yards
and 3 TDs since Week 5. Lacy has been everything his fantasy owners had hoped
for and more, and he could see even more work if Aaron Rodgers' injury proves
Posted: 11/1/2013 11:01pm et
Huddle Up: Lacy is still going to be the main man in Green Bay's backfield. The Packers will sprinkle Starks in so Lacy doesn't get overworked but the rookie is still a RB1 heading into this week's match-up with the Bears.
Posted: 10/16/2013 10:53am et
Huddle Up: With Randall Cobb and James Jones both nursing injuries it only makes sense for the Packers to get Lacy more involved. He's been effective when healthy, plus defenses are more geared towards stopping the pass. And as an added bonus, running the ball helps keep Green Bay's defense--also battling a spate of injuries--off the field.
Posted: 10/3/2013 7:56pm et
Huddle Up: The Pack's early bye week came at exactly the right time for the rookie RB who got an extra week to heal. Plan on having him back in your lineup for a juicy matchup against the Lions and their third-worst fantasy run defense.
Posted: 10/1/2013 2:41pm et
Huddle Up: Franklin did look great against the Bengals until he coughed the ball up to cost the Packers the game. If Lacy is forced into a timeshare, his value is short-circuited.
Posted: 9/30/2013 6:19pm et
Huddle Up: Lacy has a nice matchup this week, and he will likely have the bulk of the work.
Posted: 9/24/2013 9:58am et
Huddle Up: Lacy sat out Week 3 with a concussion, and now he has the bye week to recover and get back on the field in Week 5.
Posted: 9/20/2013 4:54pm et
Huddle Up: With the questionable tag, Lacy theoretically has a 50-50 chance of playing Sunday in Cincy, but he hasn't practiced all week and all signs point toward James Starks shouldering the load Sunday.
Posted: 9/18/2013 9:24pm et
Huddle Up: Lacy will almost certainly miss this week's game against Cincinnati. James Starks will draw the start and get most of the touches but he's nothing more than a flex play against a stout Bengals' rush defense.
Posted: 9/18/2013 1:45pm et
Huddle Up: This is unsurprising. He might not play this week given concussion protocol.
Posted: 9/17/2013 8:14pm et
Huddle Up: If Starks can keep up the pace after rushing for a career-high 132 yards stepping in for the injured Lacy in Week 2, this might remain a RBBC long after Lacy is healthy.
Posted: 9/17/2013 10:39am et
Huddle Up: Starks looked good in gouging the Redskins in Week 2 after Lacy left the game, but a road date with Cincinnati is a different challenge entirely. Expect Lacy to have little difficulty reclaiming his job assuming he's good to go after the bye.
Posted: 9/15/2013 5:18pm et
Huddle Up: This was bad news for Lacy owners, who were rightfully expecting a big game from Lacy. James Starks stole that thunder.
Posted: 9/12/2013 12:57pm et
Huddle Up: Hey, despite the real-life football issues listed above, Lacy still produced 13 fantasy points (Huddle Performance scoring) against one of the league's tougher D's to rank 8th among all Week 1 fantasy backs. Keep riding the rook.
Posted: 8/28/2013 2:44pm et
Huddle Up: Reading the tea leaves here is no easy task. Does this mean Lacy is now the workhorse? Will the team be splitting the role between Lacy, Johnathan Franklin and Alex Green? On the surface, it seems like excellent news for Lacy's fantasy value, especially given the potency of that offense. He is now a solid RB2 in all formats, unless McCarthy is toying with us all.
Posted: 8/14/2013 12:51pm et
Huddle Up: This flies in the face of what Mike McCarthy been saying about DuJuan Harris all along. We shall see how the preseason pans out.
Posted: 8/12/2013 2:45pm et
Huddle Up: After a strong start to training camp, Lacy's continuing absence comes at a bad time. With DuJuan Harris still dubbed the starter and coming off the PUP, Lacy could be falling behind.
Posted: 8/9/2013 11:42pm et
Huddle Up: Lacy looked great in the Packers' scrimmage, so this was a chance for another one of the running backs to step up and impress. It didn't happen. Lacy remains the favorite to be the Packers' main ball carrier this season, with the other players trying to carve out roles in the passing game.
Posted: 8/9/2013 8:00pm et
Huddle Up: Head Coach Mike McCarthy said the injuries are nothing to be concerned about, so hopefully both players will return to practice early next week. Lacy hasn't practiced since Wednesday and it would be nice to see the rookie in game action soon. However, Lacy is still the favorite to be the Packers' top fantasy RB this season.
Posted: 8/8/2013 10:24am et
Huddle Up: No reason to push Lacy at this point and risk aggravating his hamstring injury, and no reason for fantasy owners to panic about his availability. This does, however, open the door for Jonathan Franklin to get some extra reps and stake his claim to a share of the Packers backfield workload.
Posted: 8/7/2013 1:08pm et
Huddle Up: Every practice missed by Lacy is another opportunity for Johnathan Franklin to gain on him. If he misses an extended period of time, DuJuan Harris might get back in on the action. Monitor the situation in Green Bay.
Posted: 8/4/2013 3:58pm et
Huddle Up: Green was all too aware of what Lacy did, as the rookie 2nd-round pick looks to be in line to open the season as the Pack's No. 1 back.
Posted: 7/30/2013 12:26pm et
Huddle Up: Lacy's image took a hit Monday as an unflattering photo made the rounds on the Internet. But he looked just fine in camp and remains in a battle for backfield touches with fellow rookie Jonathan Franklin.
Posted: 7/3/2013 1:44am et
Huddle Up: Harris made some noise late in the season and the playoffs and
figures to make the squad as well. That would leave the remaining 3
backs -- Green Starks and Pease -- battling for 2 and maybe even 1
Posted: 5/29/2013 5:36pm et
Huddle Up: Lacy has the inside track on the Packers' starting running back gig, but it's likely to be more of a "lead dog in a committee" role than a true feature back job.
Posted: 5/27/2013 5:22pm et
Huddle Up: While Lacy's surgery didn't involve a full toe fusion, and as such isn't as serious, there are obviously concerns that the issue will prevent him from living up to his potential. It hurt Lacy's stock on draft day and could do the same in fantasy drafts as well. Also dinging his fantasy stock is the presence of Jonathan Franklin as a threat to Lacy's touches in Green Bay.
Posted: 5/13/2013 11:34pm et
Huddle Up: Lacy will compete with Jonathan Franklin in what could be a potentially lucrative fantasy role as the primary back in Green Bay. If he's able to stay on the field--both health-wise and from a scheme-fit perspective--Lacy could be a solid fantasy contributor.
Posted: 5/10/2013 10:52am et
Huddle Up: Lacy fell in the 2013 Draft reportedly because of injury concerns, the greatest of which is the turf toe he had surgery on. This is a bit of positive news, that the surgery wasn't as significant or limiting as perhaps some fear. Though it does conjure images of Uma Thurman in the back of a big yellow truck willing herself to "wiggle your big toe". Or Bill Murray leading the troops in "big round of applause to our newest, bestest buddy, and big toe... Sergeant Hulka".
