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 looking to shape up

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 08:40:57 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was advised to lose 30 pounds in the offseason, and he's committed to it.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy was a bust this season, but he still has RB1 value in drafts if he can get into better shape.

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.

Packers | Eddie Lacy limited again

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 13:59:11 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ribs) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: The Washington Redskins had an averaged defense against the run this season, but Lacy was one of the biggest disappointments of the year. He should still see his fair share of carries, but he won't necessarily do a lot with those carries. Every position is limited in the playoffs, but there is probably more risk with Lacy ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) than other starting running backs.

Packers | Eddie Lacy limited Wednesday

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 14:19:36 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ribs) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy may have been the most disappointing player from a fantasy perspective this season, but he still has value heading into the playoffs. The Washington Redskins were average versus running backs this year, so Lacy is still worth a look for those participating in playoff only leagues, but don't get your hopes too high for a massive game.

Packers | Eddie Lacy struggles in loss

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 22:53:25 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy rushed 13 times for just 34 yards in the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings, and he added two receptions for seven yards.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy started off the evening all right, but he struggled in the final three quarters. He faces a tough defense next Sunday against the Washington Redskins, but FantasyScore players might be tempted by his upside.

Packers | Eddie Lacy active for SNF

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 16:10:59 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (rib) is active for the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy was listed as probable, so there was little chance he wasn't going to be up for this game. He posted 100 rushing yards and a six-yard reception in the first meeting with Minnesota in Week 11.

Packers | Eddie Lacy probable for Week 17

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 13:14:23 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (rib) is listed as probable for the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings. Green Bay did not practice Friday, Jan. 1, but Lacy's practice involvement was estimated as limited.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) appears on track to play Week 17, and he checks out as a boom-or-bust fantasy commodity. He has plodded for three 100-yard showings through his past six outings, but he has also failed to hit 25 yards in two of those games. Minnesota has also allowed just seven rushing scores all season, so it isn't a cushy matchup. With just a mid-range price, there is upside for Lacy at FantasyScore in Week 17, but he is far from a sure thing, too.

Packers | Eddie Lacy limited

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 14:00:47 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (rib) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) appears to be on track to play this week against the Minnesota Vikings. He has been a bit inconsistent with his production recently but does have three 100-yard games in his last six games. The Vikings have played well against running backs this season, so owners may want to consider other options to use.

Packers | Eddie Lacy limited Wednesday

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 14:46:07 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ribs) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has been inconsistent for the most part this season despite posting decent numbers last week. He has a bad matchup in a key divisional game against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 17, so there are probably better choices at running back.

Packers | Eddie Lacy totals 88 yards, TD

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 20:36:15 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy carried 12 times for 60 yards in the Week 16 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He added one catch for a 28-yard touchdown on two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy really killed fantasy owners early in the season, as he was dealing with an ankle issue. However, he succeeded down the stretch and looked like a No. 1 pick in the last month when it counted most.

Packers | Eddie Lacy listed as probable

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 16:29:38 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (rib) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 25, and is listed as probable for the Week 16 game against Arizona Cardinals. The team did not practice Friday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) should receive a majority of the carries against the Cardinals this week. He has posted at least 100 yards in three of the last five games but will be facing a tough Cardinals defense. Lacy could be a solid starting option for owners but may not post big numbers.

Packers | Eddie Lacy still limited

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 13:47:50 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ribs) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) was basically a no-show last week after a couple recent 100-yard performances. He's just too risky to put in your starting lineups, especially against a top-notch Arizona Cardinals rush defense.

Packers | Eddie Lacy has limited practice

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 14:22:11 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ribs) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) was basically a no-show last week after a string of solid performances in previous weeks. He has still rushed for at least 100 yards in two of his last three games, but he's just too risky to put in your starting lineups, especially against a top-notch Arizona Cardinals rush defense.

Packers | Eddie Lacy stifled in Week 15

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 17:34:27 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was held to 23 yards on 11 carries in a 30-20 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Just when it looked like Lacy had turned a corner, he delivered another dud. He still has plenty of upside, but he is hard to trust at FantasyScore.

Packers | Eddie Lacy runs wild

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 18:59:42 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy had 24 carries for a season-high 124 yards and a touchdown in a 28-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: After his dreadful start, Lacy has reached 100 yards in three of his last four games. It might not be a bad idea to ride the big back down the stretch at FantasyScore.

Packers | Eddie Lacy regains starting job

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 07:41:32 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has reclaimed his spot as the team's No. 1 running back following an impressive week of practice. He had temporarily lost the starting job after missing curfew ahead of Week 13's game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) had consecutive games of 100+ rushing yards prior to the Detroit game and has a somewhat favorable matchup against the Cowboys, who have allowed 11 rushing touchdowns this year. He should be viewed as a potential flex option for FantasyScore lineups this week.

Packers | Eddie Lacy can regain starting job

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 13:33:06 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has a chance to regain the starting job after he was demoted for missing curfew ahead of the team's Week 13 game. RB John Crockett was active against the Detroit Lions last week, and Lacy will have to earn a promotion. "I think Eddie's been rejuvenated," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "His work was good today. I checked in on him just like I do with all the players, and I look for him to have a very good week of practice, and I look for him to be productive Sunday." The Packers have not named a starting running back for Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Before being punished in Week 13, Lacy ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) had back-to-back 100-yard games and looked to be breaking out. The Cowboys are a top-10 fantasy matchup for running backs in PPR games like FantasyScore, so Lacy will qualify as a sleeper pick at least for a flex spot.

Packers | Eddie Lacy was being punished

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 14:46:45 -0800

Green Bay Packers RBs Eddie Lacy and Alonzo Harris had their statuses impacted in Week 13 against the Detroit Lions Thursday, Dec. 3, because they missed curfew, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: After two straight 100-yard performances, Lacy ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) threw his owners under the bus yet again with just five carries for four yards and one catch for negative three yards Thursday night. He'll be an under-the-radar pick on FantasyScore next week against a weak Dallas Cowboys rush defense, but he'll have to regain the starting role in order to help you.

Packers | Eddie Lacy mum on Week 13 usage

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 07:29:45 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy declined to comment on the reason he only carried the ball five times Thursday, Dec. 3, after two straight 100-yard games. "I don't feel as though that's something I should get into yet," Lacy said. He also said he doesn't know where he stands with coaches. "Man, that's something I don't know about," Lacy said. "We'll see as the season goes on."

Fantasy Tip: If anything, this acknowledges an issue exists. James Starks has been really ineffective running the ball, so there's a chance this is just a one-week issue. Keep tabs on this situation in practice next week.

Packers | Eddie Lacy in the doghouse

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 06:27:56 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy had just five carries Thursday, Dec. 3, and his diminished role was a "coach's decision," according to CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson. The CBS broadcast crew hinted that Lacy fell out of favor due to an incident in practice this past week.

Fantasy Tip: James Starks had nine carries for 15 yards, and that's probably not going to keep Lacy off the field next week. Monitor this situation as it's likely to be asked about frequently leading up to Week 14.

Packers | Eddie Lacy struggles against Detroit

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 14:29:53 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has a combined 52 yards on the ground and averages just 2.5 yards per attempt in two career games on the road against the Detroit Lions. The Packers face the Lions on the road in Week 13 Thursday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) has gone over 100 yards in each of the last two games as he looks to surge to end the regular season. The Lions are a decent matchup for running backs, and he should receive a healthy workload as the Packers look to get their offense going. Lacy should be a serviceable runner for FantasyScore users.

Packers | Eddie Lacy, Davante Adams probable

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 12:56:57 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) and WR Davante Adams (ankle) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25, and are listed as probable to play Thursday, Nov. 26, against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) resurrected himself last week from the fantasy doldrums, so he shouldn't be overlooked on FantasyScore this week, but the Chicago Bears have only allowed three rushing touchdowns to running backs this year. Adams is a good play against Chicago as the Bears have surrendered 14 touchdowns to wide receivers this year -- tied for third most in the league.

Packers | Eddie Lacy a full participant

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 13:48:23 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Nov. 24, after being limited Monday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) had a big rebound game last week, which is hopefully a sign of things to come for the rest of the season. There is still some risk involved in playing Lacy since he has been inconsistent, but he's still worth a start against the Chicago Bears Thursday night.

Packers | Fullback aids Eddie Lacy's running

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 07:15:29 -0800

Updating an earlier report, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy rushed 22 times for 100 yards in Week 11, and FB John Kuhn was repeatedly seen crossing the formation opening lanes for Lacy. Kuhn was the lead blocker on 20 of the 34 runs Sunday, Nov. 22, according to NFL Media's Brian Baldinger. "I thought Mike McCarthy and the whole staff did some things from a formation standpoint to get Lacy going, and I thought they got the balance in a game that they've been looking for: 34 runs, 34 passes, it's not all Aaron Rodgers," Baldinger told viewers on NFL Network's latest edition of The Aftermath, saying of Lacy: "I saw his footwork yesterday. That guy can stop and he can start. He looked a lot the kid that played at Alabama three years ago and like we saw the last couple seasons. He looked like he was healthy and in good form right now."

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) has a decent matchup against the Chicago Bears Thursday, but you'll be allotting a big chunk of FantasyScore cap space. James Starks ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is expected to remain involved, but he hasn't turned many heads on the ground.

Packers | Both Packers RBs to remain involved

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 05:10:16 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy and RB James Starks will remain involved in the offense, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Lacy rushed for 100 yards on 22 carries, which was his first 100-yard game of the season. "I thought Eddie played well," McCarthy said. "He was given more opportunities. He was decisive and ran behind his pads."

Fantasy Tip: Lacy was assisted by FB John Kuhn, who was used as a lead blocker on 20 of the 34 runs in Week 11. Lacy ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) will have a decent matchup against the Chicago Bears, but at a lofty FantasyScore fee. Starks ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is at a midrange price, but Lacy clearly has the juice right now.

Packers | Davante Adams, Eddie Lacy limited

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 13:38:09 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) and RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) were both limited in practice Monday, Nov. 23. However, the Packers didn't actually practice Monday, so the designations are an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy likely did enough to earn his starting job back in Week 11, as long as he stays healthy. He should be a capable RB2 in the matchup against the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving if he's starting. Adams had a disappointing Week 11, but you can't ignore the 32 targets he had in the previous two weeks combined. He wouldn't be a terrible flex play on FantasyScore against Chicago.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy had 22 carries for a season-high 100 yards and one catch for six yards in a 30-13 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy has been one of the biggest disappointments this year, but if he could still right the ship and help fantasy owners down the stretch.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is listed as probable for the Week 11 game against the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers did not practice Friday, so his practice designation is an estimate.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) will be able to play, but his role on offense is uncertain at this point. Owners probably should look for other options to use because of his uncertain role.

Packers | Eddie Lacy says he'll play

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 09:10:10 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) said he'll be playing in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings after missing last week's game. "I felt good today. My coach said I was moving good, I was looking good," Lacy said. "It's a step in the right direction." However, head coach Mike McCarthy already said earlier this week that RB James Starks would start the game against the Minnesota Vikings, with Lacy coming in later.

Fantasy Tip: There's a chance that a healthy Lacy ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) gets into the game and outshines Starks, who was mediocre in his start last week. But paying for that to happen on FantasyScore on that price isn't worth the risk this week.

Packers | Eddie Lacy, James Jones practice

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 15:28:57 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) and WR James Jones (quadriceps) were both full participants in practice Thursday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) could finally be moving past his injury, but he'll come off the bench in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. Avoid him on FantasyScore for now. Jones ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has fallen off of late and doesn't have more than two catches in a game since Oct. 4. With him slowing down, it's best to avoid him on FantasyScore.

Packers | Eddie Lacy beyond injury?

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 09:18:04 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) looked good in practice Wednesday, Nov. 18, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. It could be an indication that Lacy is beyond his groin issues.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) sat out last week to rest his groin. James Starks will start yet again in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings, but if he fails to impress out of the gate and Lacy is fully healthy, this could be a game where Lacy could earn the starting job back. Just don't bank on it at FantasyScore.

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 14:29:53 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) and WR James Jones (quadriceps) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy's fantasy value has diminished thanks to lack of production and a subsequent James Starks' supplanting. He's not a viable starting option anymore. Jones and the Packers have a tough matchup with the Minnesota Vikings this week. Use caution if you want to plug Jones into FantasyScore lineups.

Packers | James Starks draws another start

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 11:04:14 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks will start Sunday, Nov. 22, with RB Eddie Lacy "going second," according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Starks ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) salvaged a poor game on the ground (2.8 yards per carry) with six catches for 54 yards last week. The Minnesota Vikings are in the top three at defending RBs the last five weeks, and Starks doesn't seem to have a lot of leeway. This might be a situation to avoid altogether in Week 11.

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 08:22:00 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) is inactive for Week 10's game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) had been a limited participant in practice all week and had lost his starting job to James Starks ($6,800, 13.6% of cap), who has a rather favorable matchup against Detroit's run defense.

Packers | Eddie Lacy iffy for Week 10

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 14:31:48 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) was limited in practice all week and is questionable for Week 10 against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) was recently demoted to a backup role in Green Bay's backfield, so there was already plenty of reason to avoid him on FantasyScore. Consider James Starks ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) an extremely attractive option now. The Lions have allowed 11 rushing touchdowns to running backs this year.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) was limited yesterday, too, but Jones' ($6,300, 12.6%) injury only popped up today, which is never a good sign. His status should be watched closely heading into the weekend. Lacy is not an advisable play on FantasyScore considering his recent struggles and that James Starks is now ahead of him.

Packers | Eddie Lacy looking for answers

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 11:05:23 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has fumbled in three straight games and is averaging just 2.36 yards per carry in the last month while ranking 38th in the league in rushing yards on the year with 308. Lacy is at a loss for why he has regressed this year, and he said his ankle is fine. Lacy also said his weight has not been a factor in his decreased productivity. "I honestly don't know what it is," Lacy said. "Definitely, I'm off to a different start. I'm not playing how I was the previous two years. Later on in the season, maybe it'll pick back up. But as of right now, this is just the move that is going to be." Lacy is now the team's No. 2 running back behind RB James Starks.

Fantasy Tip: There's certainly time for Lacy ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) to regain his starting role, but he may never get that chance if Starks continues to be productive in front of him. Avoid Lacy in all fantasy formats for the time being.

Packers | Eddie Lacy limited

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 12:48:36 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 11, after leaving the Week 9 game with a groin injury. Lacy is averaging just 3.7 yards per carry on 83 rushes for just 308 yards this year and has been demoted in favor of RB James Starks heading into Week 10 against the Detroit Lions. Lacy hasn't had more than 38 rushing yards this year.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) should be fine to play in Week 10 but is definitely one to avoid in daily games after being demoted in favor of Starks.

Packers | Eddie Lacy is fine

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 09:23:53 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) is expected to be a full go for the Week 10 game against the Detroit Lions, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. However, McCarthy also said that RB James Starks has become the No. 1 running back. The Packers will continue with a dual attack in the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: With the news that Starks will see the majority of the touches in the backfield now, it's official that Lacy ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) is now the biggest fantasy football bust to this point in the season. Coming off another injury, he should be left alone in all formats this weekend.

Packers | James Starks given the reins

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 08:54:31 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks was named the lead running back over RB Eddie Lacy (groin), according to head coach Mike McCarthy. "I would say James Starks is our No. 1 back right now," McCarthy said.

Fantasy Tip: Starks ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) faces a healthy matchup in Week 10 as the Detroit Lions have allowed eight rushing touchdowns the last five weeks to RBs. No other team in the league has allowed more than five during that stretch. Starks is a midrange RB2 on FantasyScore.

Packers | Eddie Lacy may not miss game

Mon, 09 Nov 2015 13:15:31 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) suffered a pulled groin Sunday, Nov. 8, against the Carolina Panthers, but may still be able to play in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Injury or no injury, Lacy looks to be the lesser running back in Green Bay right now with James Starks consistently outperforming him. Lacy is not a recommended start this week with the injury and with Starks playing well.

Packers | Eddie Lacy suffers groin injury

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 13:20:37 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) suffered a groin injury during Week 9's game against the Carolina Panthers. He is listed as questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) only rushed for 10 yards on five attempts and had no receptions before exiting the game. James Starks ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will see the bulk of the action out of the backfield while Lacy is out. Keep checking back for updates on his status.
