Packers | Eddie Lacy will not return in 2016

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 11:20:52 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) will remain on the Reserve/Injured list for the rest of the season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: James Starks likely will continue to be the starting running back with Ty Montgomery and Christine Michael also receiving carries. Starks can be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option moving forward, while Montgomery can also be a flex option because of his receiving skills. Owners in all leagues probably can avoid Michael for now.

Packers | Eddie Lacy placed on IR

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 11:20:37 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Oct. 20. The team also signed practice squad RB Don Jackson to their active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy will miss at least eight weeks and could miss the rest of the season depending on the severity of his ankle injury. Owners in most leagues can drop Lacy if they need a replacement. Jackson has a good chance to receive most of the carries until James Starks returns from his injury. Jackson can be a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Packers | Eddie Lacy to be placed on IR

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 10:17:47 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) will need surgery on his ankle and will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list. The Packers will decide later if Lacy will be able to play again this season.

Fantasy Tip: Don Jackson likely will be the main running back for the Packers for the time being with Ty Montgomery also receiving some carries in Week 7. Jackson should be at least a flex option in leagues over the next few weeks. Knile Davis may also receive some playing time at running back in the next week or two but should be avoided in leagues. James Starks probably will take over the starting job when he returns from his knee injury and can be a No. 2 running back.

Packers | Eddie Lacy's weight back up

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 07:58:23 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) has returned to his 2015 frame when team sources say he was between 255 and 265 pounds. However, Lacy was averaging 5.1 yards per carry before his ankle injury.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy is out this week, and he could miss multiple weeks with the ankle injury. Ty Montgomery is filling in against the Chicago Bears. He makes for a risky flex option in Week 7.

Packers | Eddie Lacy ruled out

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 13:07:51 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: No surprise here. Lacy is dealing with an ankle injury that will force him to miss several weeks, as previously reported. James Starks is sidelined too, so it will likely be a mixture of Don Jackson, Knile Davis and Ty Montgomery at running back. Montgomery is the best bet to produce and should be claimed off waivers if available.

Packers | Eddie Lacy seeking second opinion

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 22:02:36 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) is seeking a second opinion on his injured foot, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Lacy's scans will be viewed by Dr. Bob Anderson to determine whether Lacy will need to travel for a visit.

Fantasy Tip: What we know: Lacy is unlikely to play in Week 7. Everything else, as Schefter tweeted, is speculation. Keep Lacy on your bench this week and wait until more news breaks about the severity/nature of his injury along with any updated timetable for a return.

Packers | Eddie Lacy could be out a while

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 17:50:29 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) is expected to miss several weeks. He's dealing with more than just a sprained ankle.

Fantasy Tip: What exactly Lacy is dealing with was not disclosed, but there's now more credence to the Packers' acquisition of Knile Davis. James Starks will miss some time, too, so it will likely be Davis and WR Ty Montgomery who take over the backfield duties. Davis and Montgomery are worth a pickup in deeper leagues, but Aaron Rodgers will probably be passing more than usual. He remains a QB1 despite recent struggles.

Packers | Eddie Lacy unlikely for Week 7

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 11:11:30 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) is not expected to play Thursday, Oct. 20, against the Chicago Bears, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers are really hurting at running back heading into their Thursday night tilt. James Starks will probably be out as well, which would likely leave running back duties to newly acquired Knile Davis and WR Ty Montgomery. Montgomery is a sleeper play since he can catch and run the ball. Aaron Rodgers will probably be throwing a lot, though. Davis isn't a reliable option since he was just acquired.

Packers | No practice for Eddie Lacy on Tuesday

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 10:19:59 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) will not practice Tuesday, Oct. 18, and is still "very sore", according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy probably doesn't need a practice in order to play Thursday against the Chicago Bears, but the fact he is still "very sore" does not bode well for his availability for that game. The Packers traded for Knile Davis on Tuesday morning, but he's obviously not going to process much of the playbook in 2 1/2 days. It is beginning to look as if receiver Ty Montgomery could handle the majority of snaps at running back this week, making him well worth an add in what figures to be a pass-heavy game plan.

Packers | Eddie Lacy misses practice

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 14:35:18 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) did not practice Monday, Oct. 17. The Packers did not practice; Lacy's status is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy didn't look like he was at full health in Week 6, and he may not have time to get there on a short week against the Chicago Bears. His status will need to be monitored, but he's a low-end RB2 or flex candidate if he is active against a tougher run defense.
