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.

Packers | Eddie Lacy grinds through injury

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 22:58:13 -0700

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.

Packers | Eddie Lacy will play vs. Dallas

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.

Packers | Eddie Lacy could play in Week 6

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.

Packers | Eddie Lacy listed as limited

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 15:17:10 -0700

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.

Packers | Eddie Lacy has ankle injury

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.

Packers | Eddie Lacy rushes for over 100 yards

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:48:18 -0700

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.

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.

Packers | Eddie Lacy still has weight issue?

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:10:14 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy still weighs "in the 240s," according to a source. Lacy did P90X workouts in the offseason and turned to basketball and boxing, too. It was reported back in April that Lacy had already lost 15 to 18 pounds. Head coach Mike McCarthy characterized Lacy's condition as "so far, so good." "Eddie will be fine," McCarthy said. "I believe he'll hit the target that we're all looking for when the lights come on."

Fantasy Tip: Expectations are down for Lacy after he disappointed owners in 2015. With better conditioning and stamina coming into 2016, he could be an excellent value at running back as a high-end RB2 in fantasy drafts.

Packers | Eddie Lacy impresses teammates

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 13:22:12 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy impressed teammates with his physical transformation on the first day of the offseason program Monday, April 19. QB Aaron Rodgers, WR Jordy Nelson and DL Mike Daniels all said Lacy looked good. Lacy is in better shape heading into the 2016 season after his well-documented P90X workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy is coming off one of the more disappointing campaigns from any player in 2015. If the Packers' key players can stay healthy and if Lacy can stay in shape, he could be due for a nice bounce-back season. Lacy is worth drafting as a low-end RB1.

Packers | Eddie Lacy ready to prove himself

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 11:44:58 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has worked his way into better shape this offseason, and the people around Lacy believe the Packers are going to be happy with what they see when Lacy reports to the offseason program, according to NFL Network's Albert Breer.

Breer said Lacy has redistributed weight from his midsection to his shoulders and arms. Lacy has slimmed down over the last two months in large part because of P90X workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy is probably one of the bigger stories heading into offseason activities. He disappointed last season after a solid 2014 campaign. If he can be a lean, mean, running machine and stay healthy in 2016, he could very well end up in RB1 territory by season's end.

Packers | Eddie Lacy staying fit

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 13:12:36 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy looks to be staying fit with his PX90 workouts this offseason. Lacy and one of his fans recently took a picture together. The fan said Lacy looked fit and like he has lost a lot of weight. The fan also said that he is 5-9, 185 pounds and that Lacy is much thinner than him.

Fantasy Tip: If Lacy can maintain the work ethic he's shown this offseason, he could find himself once again in the warm graces of head coach Mike McCarthy. Better conditioning may also translate into more playing time for Lacy, but James Starks will have his share of touches, too, eating into Lacy's fantasy value. If Lacy can stay in good shape and in good health, he'll be in the low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 conversation.

Packers | Eddie Lacy keeps progressing

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 15:29:29 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has continued his PX90 workout program and the reports back to head coach Mike McCarthy have been good so far. McCarthy said he hasn't met with Lacy since the end of the season, but new running backs coach Ben Sirmans has been keeping in regular contact with Lacy while updating McCarthy.

Lacy was criticized by McCarthy after the regular season for not being in good shape, but McCarthy said Lacy is looking good now and that there will be a new Lacy when players return in mid-April if he can stay the course.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy seems to be taking his physique seriously now. If he can maintain his work ethic and if that translates onto the gridiron, we could see the RB1 we expected when he was drafted three years ago. That being said, James Starks will still cut into Lacy's playing time, which stunts his fantasy ceiling. The offseason progress from Lacy is still promising enough to take a chance on him as an RB2.

Packers | Eddie Lacy looks slimmer

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 16:19:53 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy seems to have trimmed down this offseason after taking up an offer from P90X creator Tony Horton. Lacy took some heat from head coach Mike McCarthy following the regular season for not being in shape.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Lacy has taken McCarthy's critique to heart after a disappointing 2015 campaign. It's unclear how much weight Lacy has lost, but he does look to be in better shape than last season. Lacy will look to keep fellow RB James Starks on the bench for as long as possible in 2016, as Starks cut into plenty of Lacy's running back shares last season. Don't put Lacy back into RB1 territory just yet, but he could be well on his way if he maintains his dedication and stays healthy.

Packers | Eddie Lacy weight loss corrected

Fri, 26 Feb 2016 11:08:57 -0800

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said the team did not ask RB Eddie Lacy to lose as much as 30 pounds this offseason. "The Green Bay Packers have never, ever asked him to lose 30 pounds," McCarthy said. "That's totally out of the realm of what we're talking about. That's the facts there. He'll learn from this."

Fantasy Tip: The Packers coaching staff will monitor Lacy's conditioning all offseason to make sure he comes into training camp in great shape. With better conditioning and in the final year of his contract, Lacy could be primed for a bounce-back season. Buy low on him in fantasy drafts as a low-end RB2 with upside for more.

Packers | Eddie Lacy devoted to weight loss

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 15:09:18 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has sought help from P90X founder Tony Horton in order to get into better shape for the 2016 season. "Eddie will take care of business," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "I have great confidence that he will. I think we'll see definitely a different guy in April, and more importantly in July."

Fantasy Tip: Lacy had his worst season in three years as a pro in 2015, running 187 times for just 758 yards. His conditioning has always been in question, but it was even more so a concern last year. If he comes to camp in shape, he could be in line for a bounce-back season as a buy-low candidate in fantasy drafts.

Packers | Eddie Lacy determined

Thu, 18 Feb 2016 11:30:19 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy sounds determined to improve in 2016, according to new running backs coach Ben Sirmans.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers have asked Lacy to lose weight and show up to camp this fall in much better condition. That'd be a start, but he also needs to be more productive in order to gain valuable touches in 2016. Lacy surely won't be a first-round fantasy pick, but he can be targeted as an low-end RB2 with upside.

Packers | Matt Forte a fit in Green Bay?

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 08:36:52 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte would be an ideal fit for the Green Bay Packers, in the opinion of the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs. Packers RB James Starks will be a free agent, and RB Eddie Lacy had a down year in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Forte's fantasy value would probably be more fruitful elsewhere unless the Pack heavily reduced Lacy's workload. However, Forte is a high-end RB2 in PPR leagues at worst.

Packers | Eddie Lacy well over playing weight

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 21:57:53 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was listed at 234 pounds during the season, but beat writer Rob Reischel says it is a good bet Lacy was at least 25 pound heavier than that. During his 61-yard run in the playoff against the Arizona Cardinals he took 12.02 seconds to complete the play.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy was just the fourth player in team history to post back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, but 2015 was a disaster and he averaged just 4.05 yards per carry, lowest of his career. He is entering the final year of his rookie contract, so between the team wanting him to be in shape and the fact he'll be playing for a payday, expect quite the bounce back.

Packers | Eddie Lacy needs to lose weight

Mon, 18 Jan 2016 15:48:14 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy cannot play at his current weight and will have to work hard this offseason to lose some weight, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy dealt with injuries during the season and split time with James Starks during the second half of the season. Lacy probably will have to share time against next season if he is with the Packers and probably will be a middle-round option for owners.

Packers | Eddie Lacy, Richard Rodgers probable

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 11:16:38 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (rib) and TE Richard Rodgers (hip) are both probable to face the Arizona Cardinals in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 16. Lacy practiced in full Friday, Jan. 15, while Rodgers was a limited participant.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals present a tough matchup for Lacy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap), but the Packers will likely lean on him often if they don't fall behind early. You could do much worse than him on FantasyScore. Rodgers ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) could be relied on more as a safety blanket with Davante Adams out.

Packers | Eddie Lacy limited again

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 14:11:00 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (rib) was limited for the second straight day in practice Thursday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) ran 12 times for 60 yards several weeks ago in a loss against the Arizona Cardinals. Lacy could be a big part of Green Bay's game plan in the divisional round, depending on the game flow. He's a midrange running back option on FantasyScore.

Packers | Eddie Lacy, Richard Rodgers limited

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 14:19:37 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ribs) and TE Richard Rodgers (hip) were limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) did very little with his 13 carries versus the Washington Redskins last week, gaining just 34 yards on the ground. He added two catches for seven yards, but he's just too risky be seriously consider starting this week against the Arizona Cardinals, who were not accommodating at all to running backs this season. As for Rodgers ($6,000, 12.0%), he had a great game last week, tallying seven catches for 59 yards and a score. That line broke him out of a three-game slump, and he's not a bad play this week either.

Packers | Eddie Lacy posts 63 yards, TD

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 18:32:44 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy rushed 12 times for 63 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Wild Card Game against the Washington Redskins Sunday, Jan. 10. He had a season-best 30-yard scamper in the second half.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy did not have any receptions, and he lost a fumble late in the game, although the game was mostly decided at that point. Lacy had similar production in Week 16 in the first meeting with the Arizona Cardinals, next week's opponent, running for 60 yards on 12 carries. He did have a 28-yard touchdown reception in that lopsided Week 16 loss, and he is a decent FantasyScore option.

Packers | Eddie Lacy listed as probable

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 13:31:34 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (rib) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 8, but is listed as probable for the wild-card game against the Washington Redskins Sunday, Jan. 10. The Packers did not practice Friday, so his participation is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) has been a bit quiet over the last few games but should continue to receive a majority of the carries against the Redskins. He will be facing a Redskins defense that was around the middle of the pack in terms of allowing fantasy points to running backs this season. Lacy is not a great option on FantasyScore, and owners may want to consider other options.
