Eddie Lacy continues to show flashes of stardom in his rookie season. The Green Bay Packers running back had his third 100-yard rushing game of the year on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

He also found the end zone, which gives him six scores on the season. According to Yahoo! Sports' most common scoring arrangement, Lacy's performance was good for 21.80 points.

With Aaron Rodgers still out with an injury, per Paul Imig of Fox Sports Wisconsin, the Packers figure to lean on the running game. Lacy should continue to get opportunities to shine.

To add to his value, Lacy also caught five passes for 32 yards. At this point, he is at least a viable starting option in a flex position and could pay off as a second starting running back.
