Lacy took a handoff and bounced it outside for a 5-yard score in the first quarter. He took 12 handoffs for 63 yards and a score, averaging 5.3 yards per attempt. He caught all three of his targets for 10 yards in a 38-17 victory. Lacy has 369 rushing yards through seven games.
The Packers will travel to New Orleans for a Week 8 clash against the Saints.
Lacy rushed for just 40 yards against the Dolphins last Sunday, but that came against one of the league's stingier rushing defenses. The Panthers have been decidedly less successful at slowing down running backs, who are averaging 23.0 Fantasy points per game against them this season, the second-worst mark in the league.
The Panthers have been especially struggled against the run. They have been torched by running backs over the last four games, with opposing No. 1 backs averaging 16.4 Fantasy points in that time.
Lacy has been a big disappointment this season, but this might one of his best chances to find success. Even given his struggles, Lacy should probably be active in all Fantasy leagues for Week 7.
For a team's third wide receiver to have significant value in Fantasy, that team's passing attack has to be pretty explosive. Green Bay's typically has been with quarterback
And yet in three of Rodgers' six games this season, he's thrown for less than 200 yards. As a team, the
Certainly things could change.
So in standard leagues of 12 teams or fewer, I'm leaving him on waivers. For the list of wide receivers Jamey Eisenberg is adding over him, check out his latest Playing the Waiver Wire.
He had 40 yards on 14 carries, giving him less than 50 yards in five of his first six games. And he wasn't even a factor in the passing game, going without a target for the first time all year.
The Vikings aren't so great against the run, which may have factored into his Week 5 performance, but the Dolphins aren't exactly the Seahawks themselves. If Lacy's struggles the first four weeks were really just a case of him being tentative at the line, as he suggested after last week's return to form, they shouldn't have shut him down so.
So now what? Because the Packers host the Panthers in Week 7, who have been terrible at stopping the run, I say Lacy deserves at least one more chance in your starting lineup. But if I could go back and trade him with his value redeemed last week, I would.
Lacy took the bulk of the carries and wasn't much of a factor in the fourth quarter, receiving only one handoff with 13:36 remaining. His running mate James Starks got six touches in the final period of the game. Lacy rushed for a team-high 40 yards on 14 carries, averaging 2.9 yards per carry. He was not used in the passing game.
Lacy has been held under 50 yards on the ground in all but one of his six games this season. He'll look to bounce back in Week 7 against the Panthers.
