Packers | Eddie Lacy to run more

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 06:54:27 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy is expected to receive more carries after head coach Mike McCarthy said he wanted to give the backs more rushing attempts.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy has 26 carries for 111 yards and no scores and a 17-yard reception. More work could put him in line to be a solid RB2 against the Detroit Lions this week.

Packers | Eddie Lacy ready to rebound

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 22:52:59 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy averaged 5.7 yards per carry in limited action during the preseason, and he looked explosive and powerful as ever. When asked if he is ready to start the season he had a simply reply. "Physically, yeah. Mentally, totally," Lacy said Wednesday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy spent a good chunk of the season working on his weight and conditioning, and he is looking to rebound after a disappointing 2015. Lacy remains a high-end RB2, and he might re-emerge as a trusted RB1 by season's end if his conditioning is as good as advertised and he can keep the weight off and remain healthy.

Packers | Eddie Lacy runs well

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 21:17:20 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy had nine carries for 45 yards and a touchdown in a 20-12 preseason win over the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off a down year, Lacy could slip a bit in drafts and up providing RB1 numbers for a RB2 price. If he is still on the board in the fourth round, don't hesitate to pull the trigger.

Packers | Solid night for Eddie Lacy

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 21:22:47 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy carried four times for 24 yards in a 17-11 win over the Cleveland Browns in the preseason Friday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: There are red flags around Lacy, but he offers RB1 upside and could slip a bit after his struggles last year. If he is available in the fourth round, don't hesitate to grab him as your RB2.

Packers | Eddie Lacy returns to practice

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 23:58:46 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) was back at practice on Tuesday, Aug. 9, after tweaking his ankle last week. It led to him being listed as questionable heading into the Hall of Fame Game.

Fantasy Tip: Given his struggles with his weight it's good that Lacy's injury didn't cost him much time on the practice field. If healthy he figures to operate ahead of James Starks, but the Alabama product carries plenty of risk.

Packers | Eddie Lacy accelerating

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 09:25:22 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has been finishing runs and showing the acceleration he had early in his career, according to running backs coach Ben Sirmans.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy is probably going to split the load with James Starks. Both should be in the RB3 discussion, but Lacy has the ability to win a lion's share at some point.

Packers | Eddie Lacy still rather heavy

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 22:57:08 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was a bit slimmer on the first day of training camp Tuesday, July 26, then he was for organized team activities (OTAs). He went back to P90X trainer Tony Horton for a second time this offseason, getting down to an estimated 240 pounds according to beat writer Pete Dougherty.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy was a huge disappointment in 2015, as his conditioning was called into question, and many likely will have a sour taste in their mouth as a result. He has first-round fantasy ability, but the fact he is working on his weight again is not a great sign. When he is healthy and in tip-top shape, he is a great fantasy option, especially in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR). However, make sure to have plenty of depth at the position.

Packers | Eddie Lacy must impact passing game

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 22:31:32 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy will be pushed into the passing game, according to running backs coach Ben Sirmans, but Sirmans said Lacy will have to beat man coverage. Last year, RB James Starks played 68 more snaps than Lacy and caught 27 more passes.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy's inability to stay in shape has opened the door for Starks to take on a bigger role. Both backs are RB3 candidates, but Starks is the better bet in PPR formats.

Packers | Eddie Lacy back working out

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 16:35:08 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has reunited with trainer Tony Horton, the P90X founder, this summer. Lacy spent two months with Horton earlier this year after Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Lacy "cannot play at the weight he was at (last) year." Lacy was 15 to 18 pounds lighter in April. "Eddie will be fine," McCarthy said in May. "I believe he'll hit the target that we're all looking for when the lights come on."

Fantasy Tip: Lacy clearly means business and isn't going to let himself slip back into bad habits from last year. He should be in good shape for training camp at the end of the month and should yet again be Green Bay's main back. He's a risk-reward back in the middle rounds as a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2.

Packers | Eddie Lacy continues to get in shape

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 19:47:11 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy worked out with P90X founder Tony Horton after the season, and Horton estimated Lacy lost 15 to 20 pounds during the workouts. Running backs coach Ben Sirmans said this week that Lacy might again work with Horton leading up to training camp. "I'm hopeful," Sirmans said. "The information I got from what people have told me, it's helped him. So you always want to be able to do things that help people. I hope he'll do it." After offseason workouts, head coach Mike McCarthy said Lacy still had work to do.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy's fitness and weight was an issue last season, and while he has made strides he still has work to do. He was a giant disappointment for fantasy owners last season, and while he showed glimpses of brilliance, overall his numbers were not even close to early-round fantasy production. This season he could be a steal in the range of Rounds 3 through 6, especially if he whips himself into shape and produces to his capabilities.
