Player Outlook

The Packers aren't giving up on Eddie Lacy -- maybe Fantasy owners shouldn't either. You might want reconsider after last season when some added weight combined with a weakened Packers passing game made it difficult for Lacy to post good numbers. After back-to-back 1,400-yard and 11-plus touchdown seasons to start his career, Lacy faded to 946 total yards and five total touchdowns on a career-worst 207 total touches. Already this offseason Lacy has shed some weight and seems intent on playing well in his contract year. With the Packers returning to full strength on defense and a schedule void of many vaunted run defenses, Lacy has a chance to bounce back as a No. 1 Fantasy rusher. The best news? It's not necessary to spend a first-round pick to take Lacy. He's a safe bet to be selected toward the end of the second round in non-PPR leagues and Round 3 in PPR formats. Backing him up with James Starks in Round 12 or so would be wise.

Player News
  • Lacy reported to training camp Tuesday in visibly better shape than he was in last season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Weight was an issue for Lacy last last season, so he did some extra work in the offseason -- particularly with P90X trainer Tony Horton -- in an effort to get in and stay in better shape in 2016. Lacy refused to disclose exactly how much he weighs when asked Tuesday, but the report says that he is slimmer than he was during OTAs, and he was already smaller then than he was at the end of last season. The report also notes that he is not back to the weight he was at when he entered the NFL, but he is several years older now and simply may not be able to get back to that weight. Either way, it's good news for fantasy owners and Packers fans that Lacy has made it a point to improve his conditioning. If he is able to keep the pounds off -- he has extra motivation in a contract year -- that should lead to improved stamina and stability, and help him improve upon his sub-par 2015 campaign. If not, he could slip into a time-share with James Starks, similar to what occurred a year ago.

  • Packers' Eddie Lacy: Expected to hit target weight
    By RotoWire Staff

    Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Lacy should be able to reach his targeted weight before the season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Lacy's weight has been a frequent subject of offseason discussion, with reports suggesting he's already dropped about 20 pounds since the end of his poor 2015 campaign. The Packers won't comment on his target weight, but it does seem the running back still has work to do, even though the team is pleased with his progress so far. Assuming he's in decent shape, Lacy is well positioned for a bounce-back season in what should be an efficient Green Bay offense,

  • Packers' Eddie Lacy: Noticably slimmer at workout
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lacy has lost between 15-18 pounds since the end of last season, ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reports. Lacy's weight issue was called out by coach Mike McCarthy at the end of last season, and judging by his appearance at the Packers' workout Monday, Lacy appears to have taken his coach's words seriously. According to teammates, a noticeably trimmer Lacy looked good at Monday's workout, which followed a three-month span in which Lacy trained with P90X founder Tony Horton to improve his conditioning. With a more nimble figure, Lacy will aim for a resurgent 2016 campaign, which marks the final year of his rookie contract with the Packers.

  • Packers' Eddie Lacy: Has reportedly slimmed down
    By RotoWire Staff

    NFL Network's Albert Breer suggests that the Packers are going to be pleased with what they see in terms of Lacy's physical fitness when the running back reports for the team's offseason program next week. The report appears to affirm that Lacy's offseason workout routine under the direction of P90X founder Tony Horton has yielded positive results, with Breer describing the redistribution of weight on Lacy's frame as "remarkable." In any case, once the Packers' workouts commence on April 18, there should be confirmation, one way or the other, pertaining to the running back's conditioning level. In addition to adding quickness that could aid in his ability to avoid tackles, by shedding excess pounds, it's hoped that the running back -- who is officially listed by the team at 5-foot-11, 234 pounds -- can avoid the sort of nagging injuries that have hampered him of late. Assuming he is able to maintain his improved level of fitness, retaining his spot atop the Packers' running back depth chart, ahead of James Starks and John Crockett, is a likely outcome for Lacy, who turns 26 in June.

  • Head coach Mike McCarthy relayed at the NFL owners meetings Tuesday that Lacy's offseason workout regimen is "going well," Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. McCarthy took a noted jab at Lacy's weight in the aftermath of the Packers' season-ending overtime loss at Arizona, stating that the running back needed to work on his conditioning. With the intention of shedding 30 pounds in the offseason, Lacy's workout routine under the direction of P90X founder Tony Horton has already yielded fruit, if a recent picture circulating the internet is any indication. As long as Lacy keeps up the pace, he could harken back to the player who racked up at least 1,100 yards rushing in both of his first two seasons, while reaching the end zone on 24 occasions.
