James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
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.
It's the final year for Fred Jackson in Buffalo. If the coaching staff likes him then he does find a way to be a solid bye week RB filler.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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.
I thought Jackson was done last year, but the 32-year old veteran continues to play at a high level. He is probably a high RB4 if Spiller stays healthy and plays up to his potential, but that is anything but a certainty right now.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
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.
Spiller and Bryce Brown could be a problem for the aging back.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
I love Lacy this year in the up-tempo Green Bay offense. They plan on keeping him on the field on all downs so they can keep the pace up and he will see
He's old and not the most skilled runner on his own team, but he till keeps truckin along. The Bills will remain run first and right now they aren't giving C.J.Spiller third down work and he really needs to be in on passing downs. It's a fluid situation, but Jackson can be had at value.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
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.
Fred Jackson is CJ Spiller owner's worst nightmare. He continues to play well and vulture touchdowns. If healthy, FJAX will get his touches.
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
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.
Fred Jackson continues to be a reliable and underrated fantasy option and could sneak back into the top-25 when all is said and done despite his age and presence in a crowded backfield.
  
Sablich Brothers
The New York Times
300+ carry candidate as the Pack want to rely less on Rodgers's arm in 2014.
Starting to think Jackson is a vampire as he continues to produce despite his 33 years.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
The new buzz around the Fantasy World is that the Packers want to run 75 plays a game this season. The Denver Broncos led the league last year at 72.1 plays per game and we all know the fantasy production out of that team. Lacy totaled a whopping 284 caries last season while catching the ball 35 times on 44 targets, however, they want to substitute him as little as possible in order to keep their fast-paced offense. If Rodgers is able to play an entire season the Packers wont have to rely nearly as much on Lacy. In fact, Lacy still has plenty of room to grow in terms of YPC and Receptions. Green Bay plays only 4 Teams inside the Top 10 against the run this season (Seattle, Detroit, Carolina, New Orleans) expect at least 1100+ yard season and 10+ TDs out of Lacy again this season in Green Bays high powered offense.
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Modern-day Earl Campbell could score 15 TDs, but he takes a LOT of hits.
The list of RBs who've had decent seasons at age 33 is a short one.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
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.

Always underrated. Will be used a ton in BUF and is a bargain at his 8th round ADP.
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
Lacy could have a top 2-4RB season this year, he is a very safe pick right after the big 3RBs (Peterson, Charles and McCoy) are gone. No question!

Subpar numbers vs. SEA in W1 not a surprise, but concussion, O line injuries and strong effort from backup Starks hurts stock
