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.

Packers | Eddie Lacy looking to shape up

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 08:40:57 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was advised to lose 30 pounds in the offseason, and he's committed to it.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy was a bust this season, but he still has RB1 value in drafts if he can get into better shape.

Packers | Eddie Lacy needs to lose weight

Mon, 18 Jan 2016 15:48:14 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy cannot play at his current weight and will have to work hard this offseason to lose some weight, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy dealt with injuries during the season and split time with James Starks during the second half of the season. Lacy probably will have to share time against next season if he is with the Packers and probably will be a middle-round option for owners.

Packers | Eddie Lacy, Richard Rodgers probable

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 11:16:38 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (rib) and TE Richard Rodgers (hip) are both probable to face the Arizona Cardinals in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 16. Lacy practiced in full Friday, Jan. 15, while Rodgers was a limited participant.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals present a tough matchup for Lacy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap), but the Packers will likely lean on him often if they don't fall behind early. You could do much worse than him on FantasyScore. Rodgers ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) could be relied on more as a safety blanket with Davante Adams out.

Packers | Eddie Lacy limited again

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 14:11:00 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (rib) was limited for the second straight day in practice Thursday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) ran 12 times for 60 yards several weeks ago in a loss against the Arizona Cardinals. Lacy could be a big part of Green Bay's game plan in the divisional round, depending on the game flow. He's a midrange running back option on FantasyScore.

Packers | Eddie Lacy, Richard Rodgers limited

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 14:19:37 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ribs) and TE Richard Rodgers (hip) were limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) did very little with his 13 carries versus the Washington Redskins last week, gaining just 34 yards on the ground. He added two catches for seven yards, but he's just too risky be seriously consider starting this week against the Arizona Cardinals, who were not accommodating at all to running backs this season. As for Rodgers ($6,000, 12.0%), he had a great game last week, tallying seven catches for 59 yards and a score. That line broke him out of a three-game slump, and he's not a bad play this week either.

Packers | Eddie Lacy posts 63 yards, TD

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 18:32:44 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy rushed 12 times for 63 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Wild Card Game against the Washington Redskins Sunday, Jan. 10. He had a season-best 30-yard scamper in the second half.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy did not have any receptions, and he lost a fumble late in the game, although the game was mostly decided at that point. Lacy had similar production in Week 16 in the first meeting with the Arizona Cardinals, next week's opponent, running for 60 yards on 12 carries. He did have a 28-yard touchdown reception in that lopsided Week 16 loss, and he is a decent FantasyScore option.

Packers | Eddie Lacy listed as probable

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 13:31:34 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (rib) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 8, but is listed as probable for the wild-card game against the Washington Redskins Sunday, Jan. 10. The Packers did not practice Friday, so his participation is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) has been a bit quiet over the last few games but should continue to receive a majority of the carries against the Redskins. He will be facing a Redskins defense that was around the middle of the pack in terms of allowing fantasy points to running backs this season. Lacy is not a great option on FantasyScore, and owners may want to consider other options.

Packers | Eddie Lacy limited again

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 13:59:11 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ribs) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: The Washington Redskins had an averaged defense against the run this season, but Lacy was one of the biggest disappointments of the year. He should still see his fair share of carries, but he won't necessarily do a lot with those carries. Every position is limited in the playoffs, but there is probably more risk with Lacy ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) than other starting running backs.
