Lacy left the game with a concussion, his availability for week 2 is in doubt. DuJuan Harris is likely the guy to take over early downs while Starks continues to be the third down back. Expect the Packers to lean on Starks, who looked good, in week 2.
I can't help it, the promise of C.J. Spiller being a top 5 pick in 2013 is inside of me and I can't shake it loose. It might seem crazy to rank Spiller this high but do you remember how bad the Bears defense was last season?
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Seattle is a brutal matchup on the road but Lacy's role is killer and Hawks can be run on at times.
Bears should be better on D but were dreadful against run last year. Spiller lacks TD value but should see the ball a lot. Upside is key.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Lacy still has high RB2 appeal in Week 1, but it is a very tough matchup in Seattle. The Seahawks were ranked second against fantasy backs last year.
The Bears run defense was horrible last year, Spiller has a good chance to break some big runs in the opener.
