Eddie Lacy injury: Packers RB probable, should play for fantasy owners

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy is probable for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Despite dealing with a sprained ankle, Green Bay running back Eddie Lacy is listed as probable for the Packers' Week 15 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Lacy sustained the injury in Green Bay's 22-21 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14.

Lacy did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday, then was a limited participant in practice on Friday. By all accounts, there were no setbacks, so he's expected to be available against the Cowboys.

The rookie running back struggled against the Falcons, at least late in the game when his ankle may have been bothering him. He had 20 carries for 65 yards and a touchdown in that game.

Fantasy Impact: Lacy could easily be the deciding factor in any fantasy matchup this week, and if you're reading fantasy advice, you're likely playing a meaningful game. Lacy seems like a safe play for now, at least until we hear otherwise. Start him with confidence against Dallas.
