Fantasy Impact: Lacy and the first team Packers offense looked prolific on the Packers first drive. However, the big news from this game was the loss of WR Jordy Nelson for the season. This loss could actually have a net positive effect on Eddie Lacy, who could get more carries in a less (but still) explosive offense. Take Lacy comfortably in the top four overall picks of your draft.

Lacy is a physical and gifted runner on a team that will continue to be a top passing offense under the leadership of Aaron Rodgers. We don't have to worry about Lacy having opportunities to score touchdowns on a weekly basis, and defenses will again need to game plan for Rodgers. Lacy's upside is somewhat capped due to the passing game's efficiency in the red-zone, but his floor in this offense is higher and safer than most. You can easily count on 10+ total touchdowns, while his receiving game should continue to smooth out any poor matchups against tough run defenses. Update: With the loss of Jordy Nelson for the season Lacy will shoulder an even bigger role in the offense and should be able to push for #1 fantasy back accolades.

Only Lynch and Charles have more TDs among RBs in past 2 seasons than Lacy (24) - role in the passing game on the rise as he's proven to be much better in that regard than many expected

Started slowly last year but still ended the year as the 6th best fantasy back. That's extremely encouraging going into 2015.

Lacy is in the perfect situation, teams have to focus on stopping Rodgers and Lacy will punish them for overplaying the pass. Lacy has finished as the 6th ranked fantasy back in both 2013 and 2014, thanks to 2,317 rushing yards and 24 touchdowns. He should be poised for another big year and is a very safe first round pick. The loss of WR Jordy Nelson could mean more receptions for Lacy this year.

Off to a poor start through the first 4 weeks of last season, Lacy has bust written all over him. He turned it around and finished with 13 TDs and 1,139 rushing yards. I like Lacy first overall because of several factors: He's not an injury risk and should stay fresh all season long as Green Bay is a pass first offense. He faces defenses that play the pass first and will get a share of handoffs during big leads. Let's not forget that he had 4 receiving TDs and 427 receiving yards last season.

Eddie Lacy is hard not to love due to his team situation and the 2014 year. He will have over 1,200 combined yards and double digit TDs in 2015. You can draft him with confidence.

Possibly the safest top 5 RB pick due to the offense he plays in and the lack of talent behind him.

The Loss of Jordy Nelson could force the Packers to lean on him more.

The more I think about it, the more I absolutely love the thought of Lacy as the #1 back in 2015.
