Packers | Eddie Lacy leaves practice

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 13:51:05 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (foot) left practice Tuesday, Aug. 4, with a sore foot. RB James Starks finished out practice with the top unit. No indication was given as to which foot was sore and forced Lacy from workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy managed 1,139 yards and nine touchdowns last year despite some subpar outings, and his loss would put a damper on the running game. Starks and RB's Rajion Neal and Alonzo Harris are the only other rushers available. Monitor this situation and see how it develops.

Packers | Eddie Lacy tough to bring down

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 19:11:26 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy ranked fifth in yards after contact last year, and he plays "like he weighs 300 pounds," according to an NFC North personnel member.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy's powerful style is the perfect complement Aaron Rodgers and the passing game, and he is one of the safest bets to deliver RB1 value in 2015.

Packers | Eddie Lacy not setting goals

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 12:51:44 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy said he doesn't set personal goals. Lacy said he focuses on whatever it takes to put the team in a position to win.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy has back-to-back seasons of at least 1,100 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. He was more involved in the passing game last year as well, scoring four times through the air on 42 receptions. Lacy should be taken as a top-five running back in 2015 fantasy drafts.

NFL | Pierre Thomas' hands among the best

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 19:35:20 -0700

Free-agent RB Pierre Thomas (Saints) ranked seventh among running backs with 45 catches last season, and only Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy graded higher at catching the ball, according to ProFootballFocus.com.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas' fantasy value is currently in limbo, but if he lands with a team that needs a reliable third-down back, he could be worth a late-round flier in PPR leagues.

Packers | Eddie Lacy will see limited touches

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 10:08:26 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy will have his touches limited next season in order to keep him healthy during the season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. "I'm conscientious of how many times each guy touches the ball, how much each guy plays, especially the running back. I think you have to be smart there," McCarthy said. McCarthy indicated he is not looking for Lacy to abandon his physical running style.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy should continue to see most of the playing time at running back and be a receiver out of the backfield. Lacy finished seventh in the NFL in rushing this past season and should be a first-round pick in most drafts next season.

Packers | Eddie Lacy says knee is fine

Fri, 16 Jan 2015 17:39:49 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (knee) said that his left knee was sore but fine Friday, Jan. 16. "I'm not concerned," Lacy said. "I'm chillin'."

Fantasy Tip: At this point, fantasy owners should be more concerned with the Packers' opponent Sunday than with the status of Lacy's knee. He is a safe bet to suit up, but he could struggle to produce against a Seattle defense that is firing on all cylinders. His $7,200 salary (14.4% of cap) at FantasyScore is far from appealing.

Packers | Limited practice for Eddie Lacy

Fri, 16 Jan 2015 13:05:12 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (knee), who is probable for the NFC Championship game against the Seattle Seahawks, was limited in practice for the second straight day Friday, Jan. 16.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers were being overly cautious with Lacy this week, and he'll be fine to play against Seattle. However, for a FantasyScore price of $7,200 (14.4% of cap), he may not be the smartest play for your daily lineups this weekend against a stout Seahawks D.

Packers | Eddie Lacy probable

Fri, 16 Jan 2015 10:56:20 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (knee) is listed as probable for the NFC Championship game. Lacy looks good, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy will play against the Seahawks, and may see an increase in work due to Aaron Rodgers not being at full strength. Lacy ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) is still a risky option against a good Seattle defense.

Eddie Lacy limited Thursday

Thu, 15 Jan 2015 13:44:44 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 15, with a sore knee, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy said he thinks Lacy will be ready to play in the NFC Championship this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($7,200, 14.4%) was somewhat of a risky option in the first place against the Seattle Seahawks, who allowed just 71 rushing yards per game to running backs. The fact that he could be limited makes him an even less attractive option on FantasyScore. It might be best to look elsewhere at the running back position.

Packers | Eddie Lacy will be ready to go

Thu, 15 Jan 2015 12:58:50 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (knee) will be ready to go for the NFC Championship game against the Seattle Seahawks this weekend after being limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 15, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy said he was being conservative in limiting Lacy Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) is the second most expensive running back at FantasyScore this weekend behind Marshawn Lynch. Against a very tough Seahawks defense, though, Lacy may be a tough commodity to sell on championship weekend.
