Packers RB Eddie Lacy feeling better, listed as probable

With Aaron Rodgers out and Matt Flynn in for yet another week, the offensive game plan for the Packers should be simple: Pound away at the Cowboys' run defense. And they should have their workhorse rookie running back, Eddie Lacy, available to do just that. Lacy, who has been nursing an ankle injury since Week 14, is listed as probable on the injury report. He practiced only once during the week, getting in a limited session Friday, but Lacy did say after Friday's practice that he "definitely" feels better now than he did while he was finishing last week's win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Analysis:

Even at less than 100 percent, Lacy is a top-flight RB1 this week because of the matchup. The Cowboys' defense has been bad for basically the entire season, but especially in the past few weeks. They have allowed 12 RB touchdowns in their last six games and will be without middle linebacker Sean Lee because of a sprained ligament in his neck.
