Packers | Eddie Lacy looking to score big

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 18:05:39 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has faced his team's Week 4 opponent, the Chicago Bears, just twice. He posted a rushing touchdown in each matchup last season, and he ran for 150 yards on 22 carries in the Week 9 matchup against the Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy has struggled during the early going, averaging a paltry 3.1 yards per carry while failing to find the end zone on the ground or through the air. In fact, his highest rush total of the season is 43 yards in Week 2. At $8000, his FantasyScore salary is a bit high, but with the Bears ranking just 26th in the NFL against the rush, good things could be just around the corner for the Packers runner.

Packers | Eddie Lacy needs to run lower

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 10:36:13 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy is off to a slow start this season, and he offered an explanation for his struggles in Week 3 against the Detroit Lions. "I need to work on keeping my pads low," Lacy said. "There were a few times last week where I was running kind of high, and I just figured that out. This week, definitely get my pads down when I'm running." Even though Lacy had a costly fumble against the Lions early in the game, he's not worried about his ball security. It was his first fumble since his rookie debut in Week 1 last year.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy started slow last season, as well, before turning things on. Stay patient. The one worry is that the Packers offensive line won't open enough running lanes for Lacy to excel. Week 4 against the Chicago Bears could be a perfect opportunity for him to get going.

Packers | Eddie Lacy called out by coach

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 17:46:09 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was criticized by head coach Mike McCarthy during a press conference Monday, Sept. 22, for missing opportunities to reach the second level on runs during the team's Week 3 game. "Eddie needs to play better," McCarthy said. "I'm not going to do this anymore. I don't correct individuals in the media. We've seen the film, corrections have been made, our running game wasn't nearly what it needed to be. Not even close."

Fantasy Tip: Lacy should continue to have running lanes with most defenses choosing to drop their safeties back to slow down Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay passing attack, and his inability to make opponents pay has had a negative impact on the entire offense. That being said, Lacy will have a golden opportunity to jump start his season in Week 4 against a Chicago defense that ranks 31st at stopping the run after two games. If his price tag at FantasyScore slips because of his struggles, Lacy could make a decent play.

Packers | Eddie Lacy struggling

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 06:05:34 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy had five of 11 carries Sunday, Sept. 21, go for no gain or negative yardage. Lacy acknowledged defenses may know how to contain him with a year's worth of tape on him now. "That could be it," Lacy said. "But no matter what it is, it's still my job. I'm still supposed to be able to run the ball in and make sure - not every run is going to be 10 yards - but make sure we get something positive."

Fantasy Tip: Lacy can't continue to play this poorly and could break out any given week. Check his price tag on FantasyScore for Week 4, and he could be a good value play.

Packers | Eddie Lacy may change run style

Sat, 13 Sep 2014 23:35:25 -0700

Because Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (head) has suffered two concussions in as many years, he is debating a change to his running style. "I have to figure out a way to change the way I run but still keep the physical part of it. It's not really something I'm trying to change as of now. I guess as I get older, I'll figure out how it goes," Lacy said.

Fantasy Tip: With two concussions in a one-year span, any change that keeps a running back out of trouble is a welcome one. It's too soon to tell how any change would affect Lacy, who is still a solid fantasy option if he plays Sunday, Sept. 14 against the New York Jets.

Packers | Eddie Lacy listed as probable

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 10:38:41 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 2 against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: The chance of re-injury will always be in the back of your mind, but Lacy should see significant work to have a good chance of returning a nice profit on his $5,600 investment at FantasyScore.

Packers | Eddie Lacy will play in Week 2

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 14:22:27 -0700

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) has been fully cleared and will play in Week 2 against the New York Jets, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Lacy fully practiced Thursday, Sept. 11. Lacy said he plans to go back to the old helmet he wore last year after trying the new Riddell "SpeedFlex" helmet in Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks. "Somehow I'll have to figure out a way to change the way I run, but still keep the physical part of it," Lacy said. "It's not really something I'm trying to change as of now. I guess as I get older I will figure out how it goes."

Fantasy Tip: Lacy will come at a discounted price this week at FantasyScore ($5,600; 11.2% of cap) because of his injury, and you might want to take advantage of that against the Jets.
