Two days after he rumbled for 65 yards on eight carries in the Green Bay Packers' intrasquad game, rookie running back Eddie Lacy was the featured back in practice. Lacy lined up as the starter in at least two team drills and easily had the most snaps of those competing for the halfback job.
Lacy got about three snaps to every two James Starks and Johnathan Franklin received and continued to display an upward curve. It was probably as much work Lacy has received in relation to the others and clearly showed he has left questions about his weight and fitness behind him.
Lacy figures to be the top fantasy back in Green Bay given his ability to run the ball and wear down opponents in the 4th quarter. Johnathan Franklin is a threat, but he's been struggling in pass protection, so he may have a minor role with Lacy as the lead back. Lacy is a good RB3/RB4 type with upside.
