Packers running back’s coach, Sam Gash wants Lacy to be ready to be a workhorse for the Packers. "If he gets 40 (carries in a game), I'm OK with that. If he gets 10 carries, 20 carries, as long as we're productive and winning, I don't really care. I tell all the guys, be ready for 50 carries, that's the way you should train in the offseason, as if you're getting 50 carries a game.”

Fantasy Impact: Lacy won’t see 50 carries in game; however this is good news for fantasy owners hoping to land the second year running back. In his rookie campaign, Lacy rushed 284 times for 1178 yards and 11 touchdowns. He is currently being drafted as the 5th overall pick according to ADP.

Eddie Lacy will get all the touches he can handle as the Packers workhorse and is the last of the top five you will see go off the board before any other position is considered.

Love the offensive upside in GB; Top 4 fantasy RB from Week 5 thru Week 17

Barring the dreaded sophomore slump, Lacy should be a near lock to finish as a top ten back in fantasy. He was a stud last year and the Packers will want to run more now that they have the back who can handle the load. Don't expect a big increase in receptions, but 300+ carries is within reach.

300+ carry candidate as the Pack want to rely less on Rodgers's arm in 2014.

Lacy is a beast and his role will only grow in year two. Hopefully his punishing running style doesn't come back to bite him.

Played on 60.5 percent of the snaps as a rookie. Had 1,435 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. Look for Green Bay to go with a more balanced attack on office, which will benefit Eddie Lacy in 2014. Lacy is also expected to be more involved in 3rd down situations. Look for 300 rush attempts and 40-50 receptions.

Eddie Lacy had a fantastic rookie season, but does that make him a sure-thing running back in 2014?

He had a monster rookie campaign; he runs so tough and has a ton of burst. Lacy's upside is amazing and he is on an offense that knows how to stay on the field.

Lacy looked like the real deal in 2013, finishing his rookie season with 1,435 yards from scrimmage and scoring 11 rushing touchdowns. He should be a lock to finish as a Top 10 running back in 2014. It will be interesting to see how many carries he can rack up on an offense that wants to run 75 offensive plays per game.

Over the past few seasons, it has become more acceptable to draft one or two wide receivers in the first two rounds and wait until the middle rounds to start drafting running backs. While I’m still going to target an elite running back in the first half of the 1st round (and target Montee Ball and Eddie Lacy in the late 1st round), heading in...

Is Lacy primed to improve or fall? Where's the right place to take Gronk? Who are some breakout players?

There’s a seemingly clear top three among running backs this year, with almost every pundit ranking LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles and Adrian Peterson mostly in that order. But the next tier results in plenty of variance, especially among us, with Dalton Del Don backing Eddie Lacy, Brad Evans stumping for Montee Ball and Scott Pianowski preferring Matt Forte. Our debates follow… [Get i...
