So here's Packers RB Eddie Lacy after two games this exhibition season with similar numbers. In two games, Lacy's limited work resulted in 13 carries for 69 yards, a 5.3-yard average, and one touchdown. He played the first series last week against the Browns and gained 24 yards on four carries. He took only the first series Thursday against the Raiders and posted 45 yards on nine carries.
Lacy could get a longer stint in Friday's game at San Francisco, where quarterback Aaron Rodgers expects to play for the first -- and likely only -- time this preseason.
The story said, if the preseason is any indication -- and based on last year's results for Lacy alone, it often is not -- coach Mike McCarthy wants to establish the run with Lacy as his point man early on. But Lacy does look good after losing weight in the offseason. We have Lacy 12th in PPR league but think he has a chance to be a top-10 back they way things have been trending this offseason.
