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.
