RB 1: 2014 Eddie Lacy
It’s easy to forget just how dominant Eddie Lacy was in his first two seasons. There’s a reason why he was a first-rounder in fantasy in 2015, and that was his excellent work the season prior. Lacy was a key part of a dominant Packers offense, rushing for 1,139 yards and nine touchdowns. While that was slightly lower in 2013 in both categories, he also added 427 receiving yards and four touchdowns.
According to Fantasy Data, Lacy finished sixth among running backs in the NFL that year, which is also where he finished in his rookie season. Lacy consistently put up great numbers and was an every-week starter no matter the matchup.
He helped the Packers reach the NFC Championship Game, and he also helped out everyone who drafted him in fantasy.
RB 2: 2009 Ryan Grant
With Lacy as the RB1 in this team, 2009 Ryan Grant is the perfect RB2. That season, he finished with 1,253 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns, both career-bests.
And he could’ve been a league-winner. According to Fantasy Football Calculator, his average draft position in 2009 was in the third round.
It’s not often over the past decade that the Packers have had running backs go over 1,000 yards rushing and put up great fantasy numbers, but Lacy in 2014 and Grant in 2009 did just that.
