Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy is not expected to see a big workload during the preseason, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Fantasy Tip: This is definitely a smart approach by McCarthy and the Packers. Lacy will see plenty of work once the season starts and should be drafted as an RB1 in all scoring formats.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, RB Eddie Lacy and WR Jordy Nelson will not play in the first preseason game Saturday, Aug. 9.
Fantasy Tip: Nothing to worry about here as it is just typical preseason rest.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was compared to former NFL RBs Curtis Martin and Jamal Lewis by Packers running backs coach Sam Gash. Lewis ran for 2,066 yards in 2003, and Martin rushed his way into the Hall of Fame -- Gash, a former fullback, blocked for both backs during their careers. "I compare because he deserves it," Gash said. Packers offensive coordinator Tom Clements said Lacy has become a better practice player.
Fantasy Tip: Lacy is poised for a strong fantasy year and should be a very capable RB1 in all formats.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy is enjoying a strong training camp one week in, breaking powerful runs into the secondary on a daily basis. "You know, I don't think he even cares if it's a zone or a gap scheme," backup Packers QB Matt Flynn said. "He's going to find the hole. He's one of those guys that hates being on the ground." Lacy "couldn't have looked any better," according to one media source.
Fantasy Tip: That is great news for fantasy owners! Lacy, 24, has all of the makings of a stud fantasy back for years to come. Expect him to live up to his mid-RB1 draft placement in 2014.

Updating a previous report, the Green Bay Packers want to keep RB Eddie Lacy on the field for all three downs, not necessarily to touch the ball more, but to keep substitutions from slowing down the offense. He'll need to improve his pass blocking and should see an increase in targets.
Lacy is a solid RB1 that could see more value in PPR leagues than last season.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy will try to be more involved in all aspects of the game, according to offensive coordinator Tom Clements. Clements admitted the team hasn't figured out how many carries they want Lacy to have this year.
Fantasy Tip: Perhaps this means Lacy will be more involved in the passing game this year. It's easy to speculate at this point in time, but as long as Lacy is healthy, he should be an RB1 in 2014.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy is ready for another season of 250 or 300 carries in 2014, but the team would like to lessen the burden for Lacy in an attempt to help keep him healthy.
Fantasy Tip: Keeping Lacy healthy long term is the goal, but Green Bay will ride him when it counts. Fewer carries could me more big plays, since Aaron Rodgers forces defenders to play honestly. RBs James Starks and DuJuan Harris have lukewarm fantasy appeal; Starks is the more appropriate handcuff for Lacy owners. The second-year Alabama back remains a strong first-round pick in all formats.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy said he is a more relaxed player heading into his second NFL season. "I'm definitely more focused but I'm also more relaxed," Lacy said. "I'm not tensed. I'm not trying to be too fast or too slow. Or if I make a mistake, I'm not killing myself over it."

The Green Bay Packers may keep four running backs on their roster. The team's halfbacks, including Eddie Lacy and James Starks, have been injured often in the past.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he would like RB Eddie Lacy to become more comfortable with playing on all three downs. "Eddie Lacy obviously had a heck of a year," McCarthy said. "He was a primary player for us, [a] play-maker. Eddie's focus is on being a three-down player. He has to play all three downs throughout the whole game."
Fantasy Tip: Lacy would gain more value if he is on the field for all three downs next season, because he could also become more involved in the passing game. Lacy could become a strong No. 1 running back if he is able to play on all downs.
