Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy rushed fourteen times for 27 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 loss to the New York Giants. Lacy also caught two passes for 21 yards. Lacy struggled with Scott Tolzien, the Packers third quarterback on the year, leading the offense. Lacy scored the only Packers touchdown in the game and got the vast majority of the carries out of the backfield. The impressive young rookie is averaging 83.6 yards per game and has four rushing touchdowns.
Fantasy impact: Lacy has shown he is going to be the guy in Green Bay. Lacy leads all Packers running backs in touches by far. Even better, quarterback Aaron Rodgers should be back soon. Lacy is still a safe play and despite the low rushing numbers did manage to score. The Packers will face the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12 and they are giving up the seventh most fantasy points to running backs.
