Seahawks | Eddie Lacy to split carries?

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 18:37:30 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy and RB Thomas Rawls could split carries fairly equally this season, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.

Fantasy Tip: If Lacy can stay healthy, he will likely have a chance to grab the reins of the backfield, and his upside makes him worth a look as a RB3. Rawls is more of a RB5, but he is worth stashing in case Lacy goes down or doesn't perform.

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 20:00:31 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy received his $55,000 bonus for weighing in at 250 pounds or less Monday, June 12, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy has been successful with both of his weigh-in bonuses and has five more weigh-ins during the season. The team would like him to play at around 245 pounds. Lacy should be the primary ball carrier for the Seahawks in 2017 and will look to improve his play from the last few seasons. Lacy can be considered a No. 3 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy taking steps to keep weight off

Sun, 04 Jun 2017 11:38:33 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy is taking part in a P90X, 30-day challenge this summer and has a "nutrition team" whose intent is to help Lacy meet the weight clauses in his contract and keep him at or around the 245-pound mark at coach Pete Carroll wants him to play at during the season.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy battled weight issues that led to injuries in each of his last two seasons with the Green Bay Packers, and he took part in P90X last year. He has the ability to return to fantasy prominence if he can simply maintain his weight, and Seattle may be able to run the ball enough this year to help him accomplish that. Still, C.J. Prosise figures to steal passing-down work from him and Thomas Rawls is too talented not to get 100 to 125 carries. As such, Lacy should be considered a RB3/flex option.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy should be ready for camp

Sat, 03 Jun 2017 13:04:08 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) should be a full participant once training camp begins, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Lacy has been limited during organized team activities because of an ankle injury.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy likely will be part of a committee at running back in 2017 but should receive a majority of the carries if he is in shape. He has struggled over the last two seasons with only three touchdowns but played well in his first two seasons in the NFL. Owners probably should consider Lacy a No. 3 running back in most leagues and possibly a low-end No. 2 in deeper leagues.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy working his way back

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 18:53:05 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) has been limited in OTAs, but he said Friday, June 2, that the injury is steadily progressing.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy could eventually work his way to the top of a crowded backfield, but that's far from a guarantee. Still, he has enough upside to gamble on in the middle rounds.

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.
