Eddie Lacy likely to have a 'larger role'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Now that RB DuJuan Harris is out for the season, the Packers may have to ride rookie Eddie Lacy, who despite a rough outing against Seattle in which he totaled minus-5 yards rushing on eight attempts has been impressive so far.

“He’s going to have to step up and probably have a larger role,” G Josh Sitton said. “He’s going to have to grow. He can’t be a rookie anymore.”

However, there are concerns about Lacy’s conditioning and injury history that may prevent HC Mike McCarthy from giving his rookie a greater workload than was originally planned.

Fantasy Impact: 

Lacy's ADP has risen drastically in the last few weeks given good play in the preseason and now Harris's injury. He's likely to go at some point in the late 3rd/early 4th round in fantasy drafts this weekend.
