Seahawks | No separation yet in Seattle backfield

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 17:16:08 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RBs Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls are expected to continue sharing the early-down workload for the foreseeable future, according to head coach Pete Carroll. "There's no reason to have any criteria for it right now because we like our guys, and really, equal status now is good for us. We'll see how they do," Carroll said.

Fantasy Tip: Neither back did anything to separate themselves in Week 6, as Rawls (eight carries, 20 yards) nor Lacy (nine carries, 19 yards) both finished with 10 touches. Lacy started the game and they alternated series early, although Rawls ended up playing more snaps 32-19. Rawls is clearly the more explosive running back of the two, although his aggressive running style makes him the more injury-prone player of the two as well. Both backs should continue to sit on fantasy benches until a clear leader emerges.

Seahawks | Seattle RBs do not do much

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 20:34:22 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls rushed eight times for a team-high 20 yards in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams, while RB Eddie Lacy carried nine times for 19 yards and RB J.D. McKissic had two totes for no gain.

Fantasy Tip: McKissic led the trio in yards from scrimmage due to his three grabs for 36 yards, but it wasn't a good performance for either. There are plenty of touches available with rookie Chris Carson exiting last week, but no one stepped up against what has been a pretty giving Rams defense. Seattle has two weeks to figure out its running back with a bye in Week 6.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy expected to start

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 07:13:35 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy is expected to serve as the starting running back against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy may be the starting running back but probably will share playing time with Thomas Rawls and J.D. McKissic. Lacy will be facing a Rams that has struggled at times against the run this season and could be a flex option for owners.

Seahawks | Thomas Rawls next in line to start?

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 10:41:31 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls was a healthy scratch in Week 4, but head coach Pete Carroll seemed to suggest he would get the nod over Eddie Lacy in the wake of Chris Carson's "significant" leg injury. "With Chris being banged up, we're so fortunate to have Thomas ready to jump back out there. We're just lucky that we have a guy like that who's ready to go and is healthy and all that," Carroll said.

Fantasy Tip: Rawls was a healthy scratch after Lacy received the same treatment last week, so nothing is for certain. Lacy did lead the team with 52 yards rushing in Week 4 and figures to remain in the mix even if Rawls does take back the starting job, which would be the expected outcome since he was considered the starter early in camp before Carson's emergence. Either way, it's a situation to avoid in most leagues.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy leads charge on SNF

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 21:24:48 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy rushed 11 times for a game-high 52 yards in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy was leaned up heavily with C.J. Prosise and Thomas Rawls out, and then Chris Carson leaving the game in the fourth quarter. He could be a player to target as a short-term fantasy option with a favorable matchup in Week 5 against the Rams on the horizon.

Seahawks | Chris Carson pulling away from the pack

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 10:57:03 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson has played 117 snaps this season, compared to 17 for Thomas Rawls and seven for Eddie Lacy.

Fantasy Tip: C.J. Prosise was excluded in part because he essentially plays a different position as the main third-down back, but if there was any remaining doubt Carson has the early-down job to himself before, there shouldn't be any after Week 3. Carson saw 41 snaps to Rawls' one, while Lacy was active but did not play. Carson has entered the low-end RB2 discussion and should be a decent start in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy disappoints

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 20:37:37 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy had five carries for three yards in a 17-9 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy technically started, but Seattle went with a rotation in the backfield and Lacy was the least effective. He looked like the same ineffective back he has been the last couple of years. Feel free to hold on to him for a few more games, but be ready to cut him loose if the trend continues.

Seahawks | Thomas Rawls officially starting

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 14:52:11 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls is listed as the No. 1 running back on the Seahawks' depth chart. RB Eddie Lacy is listed as the backup, followed by RB C.J. Prosise.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy hasn't been terribly impressive in his first offseason with Seattle and did nothing to force the coaching staff to make him the starter. That being said, Rawls is no more than a flex consideration in Week 1.

Seahawks | Chris Carson runs with first team Friday

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 08:51:58 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson saw nine snaps with the first-team offense against the Minnesota Vikings on Friday, Aug. 18, as opposed to Eddie Lacy's 13. Carson ran six times for 27 yards and contributed a 17-yard reception on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: Carson likely saw more first-team work than expected because of injuries to Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise, but the undrafted free-agent has done nothing but impress since the start of camp. Given how sluggish Lacy looked again, there is a case to be made that Carson is now threatening the former Green Bay Packer's spot on the roster instead of Alex Collins'. Owners should monitor Carson in next week's dress rehearsal against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Seahawks | Thomas Rawls to miss preseason game

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 12:20:21 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) will be sidelined for Week 2 of the preseason with a minor ankle ailment. RB Eddie Lacy will start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Rawls is still the better value in Seattle's backfield as long as he remains healthy enough to play. Lacy will assuredly limit Rawls' ceiling, making neither player worth more than an RB3 investment.

Seahawks | Chris Carson getting some first-team work

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 11:55:59 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson is clearly ahead of Alex Collins, according to ESPN's Sheil Kapadia, who adds Carson took first-team snaps along with Eddie Lacy and C.J. Prosise on Tuesday, Aug. 15, while Thomas Rawls got the day off.

Seahawks | Thomas Rawls the No. 1 running back?

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 14:54:19 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls appears to be the clear No. 1 running back right now ahead of RB Eddie Lacy, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. Lacy worked exclusively with the second-team offense in practice Wednesday, Aug. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy is the more popular pick in the fantasy world right now, which means Rawls makes for a great value pick. If he holds the starting job, he could achieve RB3 numbers. Furthermore, C.J. Prosise has PPR sleeper status as Seattle's primary passing-down back.

Seahawks | Pete Carroll excited about Eddie Lacy

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 18:51:07 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy's results from his Aug. 1 weigh-in were not made public, but head coach Pete Carroll said he is "fired up" about Lacy's conditioning.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy has some upside if he can stay in shape and take the reins of the Seattle backfield. The Seahawks will likely go with a committee to start the year, and Lacy should be viewed as a RB3 candidate for now.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy to be weighed again

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 17:35:44 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy is scheduled to be weighed again Tuesday, Aug. 1, and will receive a $55,000 bonus if he weighs 250 pounds or less.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy has make both of his first two target weights and believes he will make this one as well. He is expected to receive most of the carries for the Seahawks this season but will also be part of a committee at the position. Owners in most leagues probably should consider Lacy as No. 3 running back.

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.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy receives weight bonus

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.

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 06:27:56 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy will earn $55,000 if he weighs 250 pounds or less Monday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy will probably split the rushing work in Seattle with Thomas Rawls, and he'll have RB3 value with a boost in TD-only leagues.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy to be weighed Monday

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 13:16:53 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy is scheduled to be weighed Monday, June 12, and will need to be 250 pounds or less to receive a $55,000 bonus, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy has been limited during offseason workouts because of an ankle injury but should be fine for the start of training camp. He probably will receive a majority of carries in 2017, which makes him a solid 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.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy starting workout program

Thu, 11 May 2017 19:13:31 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy announced that he will begin a 30-day workout challenge June 1.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy's has battled weight issues throughout his career, but he should have a role as the power back for Seattle. He has the upside to be a fantasy starter if he stays in shape, and he is worth taking a chance on as a RB4.

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.

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.

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.

Packers | Eddie Lacy progressing well in recovery

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 15:44:25 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) ran publicly for the first time -- albeit in a pool during a rehab session at the University of Alabama -- since having ankle surgery a few months ago Thursday, Feb. 23.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Lacy's injury that cost him 11 games of the 2016 season won't affect his status going into training camp. However, it remains to be seen where he'll end up, as the Packers may let him go into free agency. Lacy proved he can still be an effective starting running back, as he was averaging a career-high 5.1 yards per carry prior to going down with his ankle issue. His potential new situation will dictate where he should go in drafts next season.

Packers | Fines not motivating Eddie Lacy

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 21:04:27 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy has been fined over the last couple of seasons for not making weight by head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Weight issues and injuries have plagued Lacy in recent years, and despite some upside, he has become tough for fantasy owners to trust. Don't count on him being more than a flex option in 2017.

Packers | One-year deal in Eddie Lacy's future?

Sun, 12 Feb 2017 10:45:15 -0800

Impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy is expected to get a one-year deal worth about $2 million was plenty of incentives in free agency this offseason, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty.

Fantasy Tip: Dougherty received this information from an agent who has a client in the free-agent running back market, and it stands to reason. Lacy is a talented player, but weight struggles in each of the last two years has made it hard for the Green Bay Packers to trust him. It's hard to imagine Lacy landing a big contract anywhere else right now, so his best bet is probably to return to Green Bay on a prove-it deal. He'll be hard to trust as anything more than a flex option in fantasy, however.

Packers | Coach hopes Eddie Lacy re-signs

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 10:44:59 -0800

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he hopes impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy re-signs with the Packers this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy was limited to five games this season because of injury and could consider testing the free-agent market since he may not be the starting running back if he returns to the Packers. Lacy could be a No. 3 or No. 4 back for fantasy owners depending on his role with a team in 2017.

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 11:20:52 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) will remain on the Reserve/Injured list for the rest of the season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: James Starks likely will continue to be the starting running back with Ty Montgomery and Christine Michael also receiving carries. Starks can be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option moving forward, while Montgomery can also be a flex option because of his receiving skills. Owners in all leagues probably can avoid Michael for now.

Packers | Eddie Lacy placed on IR

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 11:20:37 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Oct. 20. The team also signed practice squad RB Don Jackson to their active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy will miss at least eight weeks and could miss the rest of the season depending on the severity of his ankle injury. Owners in most leagues can drop Lacy if they need a replacement. Jackson has a good chance to receive most of the carries until James Starks returns from his injury. Jackson can be a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Packers | Eddie Lacy to be placed on IR

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 10:17:47 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) will need surgery on his ankle and will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list. The Packers will decide later if Lacy will be able to play again this season.

Fantasy Tip: Don Jackson likely will be the main running back for the Packers for the time being with Ty Montgomery also receiving some carries in Week 7. Jackson should be at least a flex option in leagues over the next few weeks. Knile Davis may also receive some playing time at running back in the next week or two but should be avoided in leagues. James Starks probably will take over the starting job when he returns from his knee injury and can be a No. 2 running back.

Packers | Eddie Lacy's weight back up

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) has returned to his 2015 frame when team sources say he was between 255 and 265 pounds. However, Lacy was averaging 5.1 yards per carry before his ankle injury.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy is out this week, and he could miss multiple weeks with the ankle injury. Ty Montgomery is filling in against the Chicago Bears. He makes for a risky flex option in Week 7.

Packers | Eddie Lacy ruled out

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 13:07:51 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: No surprise here. Lacy is dealing with an ankle injury that will force him to miss several weeks, as previously reported. James Starks is sidelined too, so it will likely be a mixture of Don Jackson, Knile Davis and Ty Montgomery at running back. Montgomery is the best bet to produce and should be claimed off waivers if available.

Packers | Eddie Lacy seeking second opinion

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 22:02:36 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) is seeking a second opinion on his injured foot, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Lacy's scans will be viewed by Dr. Bob Anderson to determine whether Lacy will need to travel for a visit.

Fantasy Tip: What we know: Lacy is unlikely to play in Week 7. Everything else, as Schefter tweeted, is speculation. Keep Lacy on your bench this week and wait until more news breaks about the severity/nature of his injury along with any updated timetable for a return.

Packers | Eddie Lacy could be out a while

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 17:50:29 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) is expected to miss several weeks. He's dealing with more than just a sprained ankle.

Fantasy Tip: What exactly Lacy is dealing with was not disclosed, but there's now more credence to the Packers' acquisition of Knile Davis. James Starks will miss some time, too, so it will likely be Davis and WR Ty Montgomery who take over the backfield duties. Davis and Montgomery are worth a pickup in deeper leagues, but Aaron Rodgers will probably be passing more than usual. He remains a QB1 despite recent struggles.
