Found August 06, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
Following the less than flattering pictures that circulated last week regarding his weight issues and his fighting the flab, second round draft pick, Eddie Lacy hit back with a vengeance this weekend with his eyes on securing the No.1 running back berth for the Green Bay Packers. Lacy promptly was rewarded for the effort Tuesday, taking the first rep in every running-back drill. Even with strong camps from fellow rookie Johnathan Franklin and a reinvigorated James Starks, Lacy is now viewed as the favourite to open the season as the starter. With DuJuan Harris on the PUP/reserve list for the first six games of the season, it appears that the job is there for the taking even if Alex Green took the first snap of camp.  Expect Lacy - a national champion with Alabama - to take the first hand-off from Aaron Rodgers in September.

Fantasy outlook: Packers Eddie Lacy & Broncos Montee Ball

Rookie running backs are often very tempting to grab in the middle rounds of a fantasy draft. The potential for an unlimited ceiling and keeper value is difficult to overlook. This year the depth at RB is unbelievably shallow. The top tier is well established, but moving outside of the top 20 gets ugly, and leaves a lot to chance. 2013 is not the year to take that chance on a rookie...
