Packers RB Eddie Lacy focusing on 'finishing runs' - [Full Article]

Eddie Lacy has posted back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns, but the third-year Packers running back has detected a missing chip in his on-field performance.

"Finishing runs," Lacy said, per the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "A lot of times I'll get into the secondary and I'll stop my feet or as my coach likes to say, 'Hit the brakes. Hit the air brakes.' This year, I don't want to do that.

"I want to get to the secondary and if there's a guy there, whoever it may be, instead of me hitting the air brakes, I want to push the gas and make it harder on him and maybe he'll miss a tackle and I'll break a long one, or maybe he makes the tackle," Lacy said. "But that's something he's going to have to do for that whole game."

Fantasy Impact: 

Lacy has finished in the top eight in both standard and PPR formats in his first two seasons and is poised to again in his third year. He got off to a slow start in 2014, posting just 151 total yards and zero touchdowns in his first three games. Then he got on a roll, averaging 109 total yards and 1.0 TD over the final 13 games. Expect more of the same from Lacy in 2015.
