Lacy had 10 carries for 69 yards and a touchdown, and had another big game as a receiver, catching 3-of-4 targets for 45 yards and a score through the air.
Other than a 37-yard rush, Lacy was held in check as a runner, but his 32-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter was a thing of beauty, as he broke numerous tackles on his way to the end zone. He didn't do much early in the year as a pass catcher, but he's caught 14-of-19 targets for 236 yards and two touchdowns over the last three games. Next week he'll face the Vikings, who allowed him to run for 105 yards on Oct. 2, for his only 100-yard rushing game of the season.

Lacy had 14 carries for 50 yards and three receptions for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 55-14 win over the Bears.
Though he didn't find much room in the running game, Lacy was a huge part of the Green Bay offense while the contest's outcome was still in question. He had five carries and a reception on his team's first drive, and his six targets matched Jordy Nelson's and Randall Cobb's for most on the Packers. Despite his consistent role, Lacy did most of his damage on just one play, a 56-yard scoring reception on a screen pass in the second quarter. He was untouched on the play, and while the long gain was largely set up by excellent blocking, Lacy did a fantastic job of sticking behind his blockers until he saw an opportunity to cut back across the field. With the Green Bay running game mostly looking mediocre this season, owners have to be thrilled with Lacy's contributions as a receiver in the last two games. He may not end up among the league leaders in rushing yards, and rightfully so, but his huge role in a thriving offense should pay dividends in coming weeks. Week 11 will bring a difficult matchup against the Eagles at Lambeau Field.

Lacy gained 123 yards on eight receptions and 59 yards on 13 carries in Sunday's 44-23 loss to the Saints.
It was an odd game for Lacy, who had just 13 receptions through the first seven weeks of the season, with no more than three in any one contest. He took a screen pass 67 yards on his first catch of Sunday's game, then added a slew of short and intermediate gains throughout the rest of the contest. His carries were a bit of an adventure, as he picked up nice chunks on a few different occasions, but was also stuffed at the line quite a few times. The Packers' other running backs were barely involved, with James Stark and DuJuan Harris each getting two carries and no receptions. Harris' totes both came deep into garbage time, indicating that he still has no role in the offense in close games. Following a Week 8 bye, Lacy will continue to carry the load against a vulnerable Chicago defense in Week 9.

Lacy had 12 carries for 63 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Panthers. He added three receptions for 10 yards.
Lacy ran hard and well, but the Packers gave seven carries to backfield mate James Starks, which prevented Lacy from having a bigger day. The shared workload has become a trend this season; after averaging 19 totes per game as a rookie, Lacy has reached 15 carries just once in 2014. The Lacy/Starks timeshare is working for Green Bay, which has won four straight games, so don't expect it to change next week at New Orleans.

Lacy had 14 carries for 40 yards in Sunday's 27-24 victory over Miami.
The Packers repeatedly tried to get the ground game going, especially in the first half, but they never hit their stride against the Miami defense. Lacy averaged just 2.9 yards per carry, the third time this season he has been held below 3.0 yards per carry in a game. This aspect of the otherwise efficient Packers offense remains a work in progress heading into next week's game against the Panthers.

Lacy had 13 carries for 105 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's 42-10 win over the Vikings.
Lacy got back on track in a big way, bowling over numerous Minnesota defenders en route to his first 100-yard game since Week 15 of last season. He had three carries for 53 yards on Green Bay's first touchdown drive, and later put the game away with a pair of third-quarter scoring runs. It was easily Lacy's best showing of the season, as he even caught 3-of-3 targets for 27 yards in a game that saw Aaron Rodgers attempt just 17 passes. Next week brings a road matchup with the tough Miami front seven, but it's hard to bet against Lacy when he and the rest of the Packer offense are looking good.

Lacy had 17 carries for 48 rushing yards and a touchdown, as well as one catch on two targets for 11 receiving yards Sunday against the Bears.
Lacy really struggled in the first three weeks of the season, as the Packers faced off against three of the best run defenses in the league. The Bears' run defense isn't great, and while it was good to see Lacy finally score a touchdown, his 2.8 YPC matched his season-low from Week 1 against the Seahawks. He'll look to finally break through in Week 5 against a Vikings' defense that allowed 123 rushing yards and a touchdown to the Falcons in Week 4.

Lacy had 11 carries for 36 rushing yards and one catch on one target for nine receiving yards Sunday against the Lions.
Lacy has really struggled this season, failing to reach 45 rushing yards in any of his three games, though it should be noted that he has faced three of the best run defenses in the NFL all in a row. That will change in Week 4 when the Packers face a Bears defense ranked 29th against the run so far this season.

Lacy (concussion) had 13 carries for 43 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Jets.
It was a strange game for Green Bay, as they had to abandon the run early, trailing 21-3 in the second quarter. The Jets also have a strong rush defense, but even though Lacy had a low output, it's encouraging that he was able to handle the load after suffering a concussion last week. In fact, John Kuhn was the only other running back to record a carry Sunday, rushing for three yards on one attempt.

Lacy (concussion) is active Sunday against the Jets, the Packers' official site reports.
As expected, Lacy is available to owners, after emerging from the league's concussion protocol unscathed Thursday. However, he'll face tough sledding against a Jets defense that allowed 25 yards on the ground to the Raiders in Week 1, while ranking third against the run (88.3 yards per contest) in 2013.
