Week 8: at New Orleans Saints

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The Packers posted a solid 30/122/1 rushing vs. Carolina last week, led by Eddie Lacy's 12/63/1 rushing and 3/10/0 receiving effort. James Starks chipped in 7/36/1 rushing and 1/7/0 receiving before exiting the game due to an ankle injury of unspecified severity. His status will be updated on the Wednesday injury report - Lacy owners will want to monitor Starks' practice participation this week in Footballguys.com's Players in the News as Lacy may be in for a bigger workload in the Big Easy if Starks isn't available to siphon off quality touches. The Saints' rush D is ranked 11th in the NFL averaging 103.2 yards given up per game, with six rushing scores handed out to date. Detroit chased New Orleans for most of last week's game, limiting their backs to 24/59/1 on the ground; Tampa Bay managed 21/66/1 rushing at New Orleans during their OT duel during Week 5. During October there hasn't been a tremendous amount of rushing yards piled up on the Saints. Lacy and company face a tough challenge on the road in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this week.
