Packers HC Mike McCarthy views RB DuJuan Harris as his starter

Packers running back DuJuan Harris @Ol_sLy_Foxx hasn't practiced since training camp opened, and he is not expected to practice for about two more weeks as he recovers from a knee injury. But when he returns, head coach Mike McCarthy says Harris will play a prominent role.
"I'm excited to see when DuJuan Harris comes back, because I view him as our starter," McCarthy said Thursday. "I want him to get back in there and earn it like he did all of last year."

Fantasy Analysis:

There's probably a spot for Harris on this team, but it's not starter. That will probably Eddie Lacy, and these words from McCarthy may be a ploy used to keep him motivated after he was the best player on the field during the team's scrimmage last week. Lacy is being bothered by a hamstring injury right now, but there's been nothing to signal that it is serious. He is a low-end RB2.
