Packers | Eddie Lacy gets sick during game

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 16:57:41 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (illness) ran 25 times for 125 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Minnesota Vikings, and he added two receptions for 13 yards and a score. Lacy left the locker room after the game without speaking to reporters, and the team said Sunday, Nov. 23, that the running back was ill.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy has six 100-yard games in his career, and three have come against Minnesota. FantasyScore owners will find Lacy very useful in another favorable matchup against the Carolina Panthers in Week 13.

Packers | Eddie Lacy decisive but flexible

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 06:38:57 -0700

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was able to adjust on the fly in Week 5. He had an 11-yard cut-back run Thursday, Oct. 2, where he ran into his left tackle, but he changed his course and found a hole to the right. "One thing that I noticed that I did (in previous weeks), and Coach (Sam) Gash pointed out, was when I made my decision, I made it," Lacy said. "I just got my pad level down and just drove it and made whoever had to hit me make it a tough hit on their behalf instead of slowing down and hitting the air brakes, as he said." Lacy also turned the corner and trucked a defender's helmet off on his way to the end zone.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy showed us what many were hoping to see the first four weeks. However, don't assume this will be a weekly thing and disregard cost efficiency on FantasyScore. Lacy looked good, but the Minnesota Vikings looked awful.

Packers | Eddie Lacy breaks out

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 20:52:52 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy rushed for a season-high 105 yards on 13 carries and scored a pair of touchdowns Thursday, Oct. 2. He also added three catches for 27 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy finally enjoyed his long-awaited breakout performance and almost doubled his production from the first four weeks of the season. He looked like the bulldozing runner from his rookie year, punishing Minnesota defenders and finishing off runs. He should have a good chance to keep the momentum going in Week 6 against Miami.

Packers | Eddie Lacy looking to score big

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 18:05:39 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has faced his team's Week 4 opponent, the Chicago Bears, just twice. He posted a rushing touchdown in each matchup last season, and he ran for 150 yards on 22 carries in the Week 9 matchup against the Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy has struggled during the early going, averaging a paltry 3.1 yards per carry while failing to find the end zone on the ground or through the air. In fact, his highest rush total of the season is 43 yards in Week 2. At $8000, his FantasyScore salary is a bit high, but with the Bears ranking just 26th in the NFL against the rush, good things could be just around the corner for the Packers runner.

Packers | Eddie Lacy needs to run lower

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 10:36:13 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy is off to a slow start this season, and he offered an explanation for his struggles in Week 3 against the Detroit Lions. "I need to work on keeping my pads low," Lacy said. "There were a few times last week where I was running kind of high, and I just figured that out. This week, definitely get my pads down when I'm running." Even though Lacy had a costly fumble against the Lions early in the game, he's not worried about his ball security. It was his first fumble since his rookie debut in Week 1 last year.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy started slow last season, as well, before turning things on. Stay patient. The one worry is that the Packers offensive line won't open enough running lanes for Lacy to excel. Week 4 against the Chicago Bears could be a perfect opportunity for him to get going.

Packers | Eddie Lacy called out by coach

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 17:46:09 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was criticized by head coach Mike McCarthy during a press conference Monday, Sept. 22, for missing opportunities to reach the second level on runs during the team's Week 3 game. "Eddie needs to play better," McCarthy said. "I'm not going to do this anymore. I don't correct individuals in the media. We've seen the film, corrections have been made, our running game wasn't nearly what it needed to be. Not even close."

Fantasy Tip: Lacy should continue to have running lanes with most defenses choosing to drop their safeties back to slow down Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay passing attack, and his inability to make opponents pay has had a negative impact on the entire offense. That being said, Lacy will have a golden opportunity to jump start his season in Week 4 against a Chicago defense that ranks 31st at stopping the run after two games. If his price tag at FantasyScore slips because of his struggles, Lacy could make a decent play.

Packers | Eddie Lacy struggling

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 06:05:34 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy had five of 11 carries Sunday, Sept. 21, go for no gain or negative yardage. Lacy acknowledged defenses may know how to contain him with a year's worth of tape on him now. "That could be it," Lacy said. "But no matter what it is, it's still my job. I'm still supposed to be able to run the ball in and make sure - not every run is going to be 10 yards - but make sure we get something positive."

Fantasy Tip: Lacy can't continue to play this poorly and could break out any given week. Check his price tag on FantasyScore for Week 4, and he could be a good value play.

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:25:25 -0700

Packers | Eddie Lacy may change run style

Sat, 13 Sep 2014 23:35:25 -0700

Because Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (head) has suffered two concussions in as many years, he is debating a change to his running style. "I have to figure out a way to change the way I run but still keep the physical part of it. It's not really something I'm trying to change as of now. I guess as I get older, I'll figure out how it goes," Lacy said.

Fantasy Tip: With two concussions in a one-year span, any change that keeps a running back out of trouble is a welcome one. It's too soon to tell how any change would affect Lacy, who is still a solid fantasy option if he plays Sunday, Sept. 14 against the New York Jets.

Packers | Eddie Lacy listed as probable

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 10:38:41 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 2 against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: The chance of re-injury will always be in the back of your mind, but Lacy should see significant work to have a good chance of returning a nice profit on his $5,600 investment at FantasyScore.
