Non PPR its Lacy. And even with PPR i still think its Lacy. Lacy has no real competition in Green Bay and will have 10+ TDs. That team moves up and down the field at will because of Rodgers. And while hes OL isnt great, teams have to respect Rodgers so much that it will open up the running game. Lacy might only get 15-18 touches a game, but will be productive with those and will get TDs. And Lacy is better in the passing game then people think. Hes not Darren Sproles out there but he can catch the ball and do good things after the catch,
The only reason I dont think its Gio is because of BGE. BGE isnt an animal, but he did rush for over 1,000 yards and had 6 TDs. Hes a solid NFL RB, and will be the goal line / early down RB. BGE will get the TDs. Gio also struggles a good bit in pass blocking. Which hurts him. Frank Gore said every RB in the NFL can run the ball, but its the ones that can pass block that stay on the field. Gio struggles at that. BGE is solid pass blocker. Also, BGE doesnt fumble the football. Which is HUGE. Its def gonna be a time share, which is 1 of the main reasons why I think Lacy is going to have a better year than Gio. Lacy is the clear cut #1 RB on the team. They say Harris is fighting for the spot, but lets be serious here. They are doing that to keep Lacy motivated and not relaxed. But its his spot.
On the other hand, BGE is a legit NFL RB that has rushed over 1,000 yards twice in his career. Gio will get solid PT, but Lacy is the guy in Green Bay.
