|Packers | Eddie Lacy impresses teammates|
Mon, 18 Apr 2016 13:22:12 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy impressed teammates with his physical transformation on the first day of the offseason program Monday, April 19. QB Aaron Rodgers, WR Jordy Nelson and DL Mike Daniels all said Lacy looked good. Lacy is in better shape heading into the 2016 season after his well-documented P90X workouts.
Fantasy Tip: Lacy is coming off one of the more disappointing campaigns from any player in 2015. If the Packers' key players can stay healthy and if Lacy can stay in shape, he could be due for a nice bounce-back season. Lacy is worth drafting as a low-end RB1.

|Packers | Eddie Lacy ready to prove himself|
Tue, 12 Apr 2016 11:44:58 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has worked his way into better shape this offseason, and the people around Lacy believe the Packers are going to be happy with what they see when Lacy reports to the offseason program, according to NFL Network's Albert Breer. Breer said Lacy has redistributed weight from his midsection to his shoulders and arms. Lacy has slimmed down over the last two months in large part because of P90X workouts.
Fantasy Tip: Lacy is probably one of the bigger stories heading into offseason activities. He disappointed last season after a solid 2014 campaign. If he can be a lean, mean, running machine and stay healthy in 2016, he could very well end up in RB1 territory by season's end.

|Packers | Eddie Lacy staying fit |
Thu, 24 Mar 2016 13:12:36 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy looks to be staying fit with his PX90 workouts this offseason. Lacy and one of his fans recently took a picture together. The fan said Lacy looked fit and like he has lost a lot of weight. The fan also said that he is 5-9, 185 pounds and that Lacy is much thinner than him.
Fantasy Tip: If Lacy can maintain the work ethic he's shown this offseason, he could find himself once again in the warm graces of head coach Mike McCarthy. Better conditioning may also translate into more playing time for Lacy, but James Starks will have his share of touches, too, eating into Lacy's fantasy value. If Lacy can stay in good shape and in good health, he'll be in the low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 conversation.

|Packers | Eddie Lacy keeps progressing|
Tue, 22 Mar 2016 15:29:29 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has continued his PX90 workout program and the reports back to head coach Mike McCarthy have been good so far. McCarthy said he hasn't met with Lacy since the end of the season, but new running backs coach Ben Sirmans has been keeping in regular contact with Lacy while updating McCarthy. Lacy was criticized by McCarthy after the regular season for not being in good shape, but McCarthy said Lacy is looking good now and that there will be a new Lacy when players return in mid-April if he can stay the course.
Fantasy Tip: Lacy seems to be taking his physique seriously now. If he can maintain his work ethic and if that translates onto the gridiron, we could see the RB1 we expected when he was drafted three years ago. That being said, James Starks will still cut into Lacy's playing time, which stunts his fantasy ceiling. The offseason progress from Lacy is still promising enough to take a chance on him as an RB2.

|Packers | Eddie Lacy looks slimmer |
Thu, 03 Mar 2016 16:19:53 -0800
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy seems to have trimmed down this offseason after taking up an offer from P90X creator Tony Horton. Lacy took some heat from head coach Mike McCarthy following the regular season for not being in shape.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Lacy has taken McCarthy's critique to heart after a disappointing 2015 campaign. It's unclear how much weight Lacy has lost, but he does look to be in better shape than last season. Lacy will look to keep fellow RB James Starks on the bench for as long as possible in 2016, as Starks cut into plenty of Lacy's running back shares last season. Don't put Lacy back into RB1 territory just yet, but he could be well on his way if he maintains his dedication and stays healthy.

|Packers | Eddie Lacy weight loss corrected|
Fri, 26 Feb 2016 11:08:57 -0800
Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said the team did not ask RB Eddie Lacy to lose as much as 30 pounds this offseason. "The Green Bay Packers have never, ever asked him to lose 30 pounds," McCarthy said. "That's totally out of the realm of what we're talking about. That's the facts there. He'll learn from this."
Fantasy Tip: The Packers coaching staff will monitor Lacy's conditioning all offseason to make sure he comes into training camp in great shape. With better conditioning and in the final year of his contract, Lacy could be primed for a bounce-back season. Buy low on him in fantasy drafts as a low-end RB2 with upside for more.

|Packers | Eddie Lacy devoted to weight loss |
Thu, 25 Feb 2016 15:09:18 -0800
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has sought help from P90X founder Tony Horton in order to get into better shape for the 2016 season. "Eddie will take care of business," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "I have great confidence that he will. I think we'll see definitely a different guy in April, and more importantly in July."
Fantasy Tip: Lacy had his worst season in three years as a pro in 2015, running 187 times for just 758 yards. His conditioning has always been in question, but it was even more so a concern last year. If he comes to camp in shape, he could be in line for a bounce-back season as a buy-low candidate in fantasy drafts.

|Packers | Eddie Lacy determined|
Thu, 18 Feb 2016 11:30:19 -0800
Fantasy Tip: The Packers have asked Lacy to lose weight and show up to camp this fall in much better condition. That'd be a start, but he also needs to be more productive in order to gain valuable touches in 2016. Lacy surely won't be a first-round fantasy pick, but he can be targeted as an low-end RB2 with upside.

|Packers | Matt Forte a fit in Green Bay?|
Fri, 12 Feb 2016 08:36:52 -0800
Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte would be an ideal fit for the Green Bay Packers, in the opinion of the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs. Packers RB James Starks will be a free agent, and RB Eddie Lacy had a down year in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Forte's fantasy value would probably be more fruitful elsewhere unless the Pack heavily reduced Lacy's workload. However, Forte is a high-end RB2 in PPR leagues at worst.

|Packers | Eddie Lacy well over playing weight|
Wed, 03 Feb 2016 21:57:53 -0800
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was listed at 234 pounds during the season, but beat writer Rob Reischel says it is a good bet Lacy was at least 25 pound heavier than that. During his 61-yard run in the playoff against the Arizona Cardinals he took 12.02 seconds to complete the play.
Fantasy Tip: Lacy was just the fourth player in team history to post back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, but 2015 was a disaster and he averaged just 4.05 yards per carry, lowest of his career. He is entering the final year of his rookie contract, so between the team wanting him to be in shape and the fact he'll be playing for a payday, expect quite the bounce back.
