Eddie Lacy is proving that he's going to be a heavily utilized weapon on Green Bay's offense. Lacy rushed for 82 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Browns. He also caught five passes for 26 yards. He was given 22 carries, while fellow running back Johnathan Franklin was given just two opportunities carrying the ball. Not only has Lacy cemented himself as Green Bay's workhorse, he's being targeted more in the passing game.
Fantasy impact: The Packers had no trouble giving Lacy virtually all of the backfield work, and Lacy is now trending as a strong RB2 with tremendous upside. Lacy has posted over 100 all-purpose yards for two consecutive weeks now. It's even more encouraging to see that Lacy was targeted six times in the passing game. Expect the Packers to find more ways on getting the ball to Lacy as the Packers deal with the absence of Randall Cobb's versatility for most of the season.
