Seahawks | Seattle expects to run more often in 2017

Fri, 19 May 2017 12:50:36 -0700

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said this week the Seahawks will run the ball more often this season. The team added Eddie Lacy to a backfield that already had a pair of injury-prone players in C.J. Prosise and Thomas Rawls. "We definitely will. We lost 100-something runs last year. And that was basically the story. That was basically the tale of why everything came about as it did. … With the quarterback being a mess and the running back situation, everybody being banged up, we were just unable to find it. So I think we'll come roaring right back at it," Carroll said.

Fantasy Tip: The offensive line was as much to blame for the drop of production in the running game as much as anything. Regardless, Lacy should lead the backfield in touches, while Rawls may be best-suited for a change-of-pace role given his injury history. Prosise figures to have a firm grasp on passing-down duties.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy has more incentives

Thu, 18 May 2017 14:58:33 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy can earn $1.3 million if he rushes for at least 1,200 yards this season. Rushing for a minimum of 800 yards will cash him in for $250,000, 900 yards will be $500,000, 1,000 yards will be $750,000 and $1,100 yards would earn him $1 million. He has already gained $55,000 for not exceeding 255 pounds.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy's incentives will be difficult to reach with Thomas Rawls in the fold. Lacy does have more appeal, though, and deserves a look as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 in standard leagues.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy passes weight test

Mon, 15 May 2017 12:14:26 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy earned $55,000 Monday, May 15, for weighing 253 pounds -- two below the limit Seattle set for him.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy's weight has been an issue in the past, but he appears to be committed, at least for now, to get into football shape this offseason. Much was made of his P90X workouts last offseason, but an ankle injury sidelined Lacy for 11 games last season. He'll have a fresh start in Seattle, but he'll also be competing with Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise. A crowded backfield makes Lacy no more than a flex consideration in mid-to-late rounds.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy starting workout program

Thu, 11 May 2017 19:13:31 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy announced that he will begin a 30-day workout challenge June 1.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy's has battled weight issues throughout his career, but he should have a role as the power back for Seattle. He has the upside to be a fantasy starter if he stays in shape, and he is worth taking a chance on as a RB4.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy likes system

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 20:34:04 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy said he is motivated to prove he is not a fluke, and he feels Seattle's offense fits his running style.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy will likely serve as the power back in Seattle's offense, and he is worth a flier as a RB3 in case he can approach the numbers he put up in his first two years in the league.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy's deal has weight incentives

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 17:09:08 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy's new contract includes incentives for each month he meets a target weight designated by the team. He earns an additional $55,000 for being at 255 pounds in May, 250 pounds in June through August and 245 pounds from September to December.

Fantasy Tip: It's a rather brilliant idea to ensure Lacy is at the desired playing weight so the team can maximize the potential on their new running back. However, that may not be the biggest roadblock the former Green Bay Packer deals with, as he was in fairly decent shape last year before injuries limited him to just five games, the fewest of his career. When he was healthy, Lacy actually looked good, registering a career-high 5.1 yards per carry.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy has weight bonus in deal

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 11:06:54 -0700

Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy has a $385,000 bonus related to his weight in his new contract.

Fantasy Tip: The Seahawks want Lacy to be weigh in the 240-pound range in 2017, but reports have indicated that he is over that weight at this point. Lacy likely will share work with Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise next season and probably should be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in fantasy leagues.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy has target weight

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 12:47:54 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy's target weight will be in the 240s, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll emphasized that Lacy has future money at stake with his one-year deal with the Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Basically, Lacy needs to lose some weight and stay at that playing weight in order to be effective and have a longer stay with the Seahawks. Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise give the Seahawks extra security at running back. Look for Rawls to be their primary running back, while Prosise serves in the third-down and change-of-pace role with Lacy running on short-yardage and goal-line situations. As for Lacy in particular, he's an RB3 to flex option at best.

Free-agent RB Eddie Lacy (Packers) will join the Seattle Seahawks on a one-year, $5.55 million deal Tuesday, March 14, according to a source. He will receive $3 million in guaranteed money.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy is on a "prove it" deal in an offense that has a crowded backfield. His fantasy value is capped in the RB3/flex area, primarily due to his injury concerns and a likely time share.
