Green Bay RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) will not practice until at least Thursday

Eddie Lacy @Lil_Eazy_Ana_42 suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Steelers. HC Mike McCarthy downplayed the injury saying, "Eddie's sore, he has been pretty much the whole season." It seems likely that Lacy will be re-evaluated on Thursday, but don't expect him to practice until Friday. Given the matchup and the importance of the game, expect Lacy to play, but if he is held out, James Starks @James44Starks will be in line for the start.

Fantasy Analysis:

Lacy will be looking forward to playing an historically bad Bears run defense. Giving up an astonishing 160 yards per game, the Bears have made much lesser running backs look like Pro Bowlers. Unless Rod Marinelli and Lovie Smith come back this week, Lacy and RB James Starks look to have huge days.

In leagues with meaningful games this week, consider picking up Starks to back up Lacy. Even if Lacy suits up, Starks should be a solid flex play.
