Seattle is a brutal matchup on the road but Lacy's role is killer and Hawks can be run on at times.
Another TD vulture here but he's probably more of a Flex play despite the solid matchup.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
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 truly believe that Fred Jackson will be a top 30 back again this season. Maybe not the top 15 back he was in 2013 but still very startable in deeper leagues and as an every week flex.

CHI was the 2nd worst run D in terms of fantasy points given allowed to running backs. With few improvements along that front in the offseason, fire up Fred and CJ.
  
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.
