Eddie Lacy misses practice Wednesday, fantasy status up in the air

The Packers running back did not practice with the team on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy (ankle) did not practice with the team on Wednesday, according to a report by ESPN's Rob Demovsky. Lacy carried the ball 20 times for 65 yards and a touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons last week.

Fantasy Impact: Head coach Mike McCarthy stated he's not sure whether or not Lacy will be able to play in Week 15. Judging by the fact the Falcons don't exactly have the best defense in the league, Lacy's 3.25 yards per carry last week might have been an indication that his ankle really was bothering him.

The Packers need to win all three of their remaining games to get into the playoffs, so if Lacy is out this week, James Starks would be the player to take the field as his replacement.

With quarterback Aaron Rodgers' status also up in the air this week, the Packers could end up leaning on the running game more than they want to against the Cowboys. It remains to be seen whether added carries will go to Lacy or Starks, though.
