In a tightly contested game, the rookie tailback carried the ball 23 times for 120 yards, routinely ripping off chunks of yardage versus a Ravens front seven that is no pushover. Lacy's biggest run came late in the game on a 37-yard scamper, as he was visibly effective toward the game's end when the defense was gassed.
Fantasy Spin: This is your feature back in Green Bay for the forseeable future. Fantasy owners are just fine with that, as Sunday's contest marks consecutive games where Lacy has recorded at least 99 yards on the ground.
It's worth mention that Aaron Rodgers could not get much going in the passing game, especially with both Randall Cobb and James Jones exiting early with injuries. Should these injuries be long-term, the Packers may need to err to a more balanced attack on offense. That has been the case of late, and as long as Lacy continues to be productive, there's no reason it should end next week versus the Cleveland Browns. Owners can pen him in as an RB2 with confidence.
