The Packers’ depth at running back should only help the no-huddle offense, which will benefit from having a fresh set of legs available at any moment. That has shown up thus far in the preseason.

In the two games in which the entire No. 1 offense has played, the Packers have scored 32 points in eight series. Two drives with Eddie Lacy, one in each game, produced touchdowns. One with DuJuan Harris (featuring his 31-yard reception) and one with both Starks and Harris ended with TDs as well, with James Starks adding a powerful two-point conversion run.

Fantasy Impact: 

A story we had yesterday stated that Lacy is clearly the RB1 and is expected to carry a big load this season, something we've been preaching for a while. But it looks like the Packers have two capable backups behind him who could also see snaps from time-to-time when the offense is running at full steam. Lacy is the guy to own but if he goes down Starks and Harris could be popular targets.
