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.

Mon, 15 May 2017 06:33:47 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy is due for a weigh-in Monday, May 15. If he weighs 255 pounds or less, he'll earn $35,000.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy will have the chance to run the ball on first and second down in Seattle, and he'll be in the RB3 mix in fantasy.

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.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy is joining Seattle

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 09:28:20 -0700

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.

Vikings | No deal for Eddie Lacy in Minnesota

Sun, 12 Mar 2017 17:46:33 -0700

Free-agent RB Eddie Lacy (Packers) left his meeting with the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, March 12, without agreeing to a deal.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy continues to make the rounds, and he will eventually find a home. He will likely be slated for committee duty wherever he signs, but he should be worth grabbing as a low-end RB3 in case he returns to form.

Vikings | Eddie Lacy meets with MIN Sunday

Sun, 12 Mar 2017 15:23:29 -0700

Free-agent RB Eddie Lacy (Packers) met with the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, March 12.

Fantasy Tip: The Vikings are looking for a new running back with Adrian Peterson no longer with the team. Lacy probably would share work with Jerick McKinnon if he decides to sign with the Vikings and would be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in fantasy leagues.

NFL | Eddie Lacy to make his rounds

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 14:17:16 -0800

Free-agent RB Eddie Lacy (Packers) is set to visit the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Seahawks and Vikings have seemingly been in play for every notable free-agent runner so far, but neither team is likely to set the market. A return to the Green Bay Packers is very possible as well, although a deep running back draft class may keep all of these teams from going much over the minimum to acquire Lacy or any other veteran runner.

Packers | Green Bay to talk with Eddie Lacy's agent

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 13:52:30 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy's agent, Pat Dye Jr., said he is scheduled to meet with the Packers this week but is not sure if the two sides will be able to reach an agreement before the start of free agency. Dye said he expects Lacy to sign a short-term deal this offseason, which would allow him to sign a lucrative contract in the near future if he plays well.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy could still be an option for the Packers, but he probably will test the free-agent market to see what is available. He was limited to five games in 2016 because of injury and finished with 360 rushing yards and zero touchdowns. Lacy may be part of a running back committee if he is not able to find a starting job and probably could be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 back in fantasy leagues.

Packers | Eddie Lacy had extensive surgery

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 05:54:05 -0800

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) had extensive surgery to repair a ligament in his ankle in October, he confirmed in a podcast with ESPN's Adam Schefter. "I messed up my deltoid and widened the bone on my ankle, so I had to get two screws, two wires and a plate to fix it because I messed up my deltoid ligament," Lacy said. "That's the longest thing to heal. My healing process is 4-6 months, on the 26th (of February) it (was) the fourth month," Lacy also said the Packers have been vocal about bringing him back.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy could still see some run with the Packers if he comes back in shape. However, it's tough to count on him as anything more than an RB3 in fantasy.

Packers | Eddie Lacy progressing well in recovery

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 15:44:25 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) ran publicly for the first time -- albeit in a pool during a rehab session at the University of Alabama -- since having ankle surgery a few months ago Thursday, Feb. 23.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Lacy's injury that cost him 11 games of the 2016 season won't affect his status going into training camp. However, it remains to be seen where he'll end up, as the Packers may let him go into free agency. Lacy proved he can still be an effective starting running back, as he was averaging a career-high 5.1 yards per carry prior to going down with his ankle issue. His potential new situation will dictate where he should go in drafts next season.

Packers | Fines not motivating Eddie Lacy

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 21:04:27 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy has been fined over the last couple of seasons for not making weight by head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Weight issues and injuries have plagued Lacy in recent years, and despite some upside, he has become tough for fantasy owners to trust. Don't count on him being more than a flex option in 2017.

Packers | One-year deal in Eddie Lacy's future?

Sun, 12 Feb 2017 10:45:15 -0800

Impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy is expected to get a one-year deal worth about $2 million was plenty of incentives in free agency this offseason, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty.

Fantasy Tip: Dougherty received this information from an agent who has a client in the free-agent running back market, and it stands to reason. Lacy is a talented player, but weight struggles in each of the last two years has made it hard for the Green Bay Packers to trust him. It's hard to imagine Lacy landing a big contract anywhere else right now, so his best bet is probably to return to Green Bay on a prove-it deal. He'll be hard to trust as anything more than a flex option in fantasy, however.

Packers | Coach hopes Eddie Lacy re-signs

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 10:44:59 -0800

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he hopes impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy re-signs with the Packers this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy was limited to five games this season because of injury and could consider testing the free-agent market since he may not be the starting running back if he returns to the Packers. Lacy could be a No. 3 or No. 4 back for fantasy owners depending on his role with a team in 2017.

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 19:07:34 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) said he has no doubt he will be ready for the 2017 season, and he has an offseason training program in place designed to help him become more explosive and agile.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy will be a free agent, and his fantasy value will hinge on where he signs. If he ends up back in Green Bay, he will have RB1 upside.

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.

Packers | Eddie Lacy being evaluated

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 10:59:38 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) was clearly limited throughout parts of the team's Week 6 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, but head coach Mike McCarthy was noncommittal when asked whether or not he suffered a setback during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Even worse for Lacy and his owners, Green Bay plays again on Thursday against the Chicago Bears. Despite their lack of depth at running back - James Starks is the only other back on the roster and he's out for now after undergoing meniscus surgery - the Packers should try to get by this week with practice-squader Don Jackson and a combination of Ty Montgomery and Randall Cobb to give Lacy nearly two weeks to heal up. Lacy is a low-end RB2 for now.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) rushed 17 times for 65 yards in the Week 6 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He also added one catch for six yards on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy entered with an ankle injury and did about as well as expected. He has short week to get ready for the visiting Chicago Bears Thursday. He remains a solid fantasy option as long as he is active.

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 12:38:18 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy should receive plenty of carries against the Cowboys because James Starks is sidelined with an injury. It is not known if his injury will affect his play, but Lacy should still be a starting option for fantasy owners.

Sat, 15 Oct 2016 19:15:03 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) has given the team enough confidence in his health that he could play in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: With James Starks injured and possibly out for several weeks, Lacy may see a bigger role in the Packers offense assuming he can play. Look for a decision on Lacy no later than Sunday morning. Use him as an RB2 or RB3 if he goes.

Packers | Eddie Lacy's status in question

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 13:11:23 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 14, and is listed as questionable for Week 6. The Packers did not practice Friday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy appears to be on track to play in Week 6, but owners will need to check the inactive list before finalizing their lineups. Lacy likely will receive a majority of the carries against the Dallas Cowboys and should be a fine starting running back for fantasy owners.

Packers | Eddie Lacy limited

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 14:19:16 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy faces a Dallas Cowboys defense that has been stellar versus running backs this season, allowing just 78.4 rushing yards per game and only two touchdowns. Don't view Lacy as more than a flex play, assuming he is good to go this week.

Packers | Eddie Lacy expected to play more

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 21:04:17 -0700

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) moved around better than expected Wednesday, Oct. 12, due to his left ankle injury, and he is likely to play more than RB James Starks (knee) against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6. Lacy had his left ankle heavily taped as he went through the individual drills portion of practice.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy left the Week 5 game early, and James Starks looked to be in better shape for this Sunday. However, after practice Wednesday it was a role reversal. Lacy is a decent RB2 for the upcoming weekend in most fantasy leagues.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy's availability for Week 6 will not be known until later in the week, and he could be a game-time decision. Lacy should be a starting option if he plays, but owners will need other options ready in case he is ruled out.

Packers | Eddie Lacy uncertain to play Week 6

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 10:45:39 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) was encouraged by the fact he was able to walk on his injured ankle Monday, Oct. 10, less than 24 hours after injuring it in a Week 5 win over the New York Giants. However, he was not able to finish the game and told reporters Monday "we'll see how it is going into next week" when asked about playing versus the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: James Starks has been awful this season (24 carries for 42 yards), so it isn't as if he is a no-brainer add or start in fantasy if Lacy misses Week 6. However, Starks and fullback Aaron Ripkowski are the only backs remaining on the roster, so look for the team to add a body at some point this week. Lacy's a RB2 if he can play, while Starks is an unexciting flex is he is forced to carry the load.

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 19:48:42 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) suffered a left ankle injury in the Week 5 game against the New York Giants and his return is questionable.

Fantasy Tip: If Lacy is forced to miss time it would be good news for James Starks. Lacy is on the sidelines with a wrap on his ankle and he doesn't appear to be coming back in anytime soon.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy ran 17 times for 103 yards in a 34-27 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Although Lacy didn't score, he did help the Packers' ground game show off a bit and forced the Lions to respect both the run and the pass. Lacy's game fluctuates from week to week, however, so beware if you put him in your lineup.

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.

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 | 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.
