Packers want to continue to run ball well

Sunday, August 14, 2016, 11:09am

ESPN - [Full Article]

It's not as if the Packers' running game was deficient last season; they ranked 12th overall in the league in rushing yards per game (115.6). But McCarthy wants to start this season the way they finished last year. They averaged 131.0 yards rushing per game over the final six games, including playoffs. In the two playoff games, they rushed for 141 yards against the Redskins and 132 yards against the Cardinals.

"We wanted to run the ball,” McCarthy said. “Eddie Lacy and James Starks is our 1-2 punch. That's been an excellent combination now going into our third year with those two guys. It's important to establish that and make sure those guys touch the football."

Fantasy Impact:

They got off to a good start and the comments on Eddie Lacy, especially, were positive. Lacy lost 22 points and came into camp in much better shape. He carried on the first four plays of the game for 24 yards against the Browns.

Scouting Report

Week 2 at Minnesota
Starks saw just five touches last week at Jacksonville, compared to 15 for Eddie Lacy. That doesn't bode well for Starks unless Lacy gets hurt.
