2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
In 2013 Lacy finished his rookie year as the No.7 overall running back with a 14.0 FPts/G average. Lightning nearly hit the same place twice, as Lacy moved up a spot on the rankings and improved his FPts/G average by nearly a point. Can fantasy owners expect similar numbers in 2015? In a word, YUP!

After a maddeningly slow start to the 2014 season (1 touchdown, and no games over 43 yards during Weeks 1-4), it seemed Lacy was on his way to catastrophic bust status. Many impatient fantasy owners panicked and sold low, thinking the runner from Alabama was on the verge of following in the footsteps of other failed Crimson Tide backs. While Lacy didnít approach the carry numbers from his rookie year (284-246), he did increase his yards-per-carry from 4.1 to 4.6, which shows an improving understanding of blocking schemes, and running lanes. After that horrific start, Lacy finished the season incredibly strong with 157-766-4 (4.9 ypc) over the final eight games of the season. Five of his highest rushing attempt totals came during this stretch, which also happened to coincide with the injury to Rodgers.

As long as Rodgers is under center, the Packers are going to throw the ball around the field with great frequency as they build leads. The passing attack, and the desire to limit his carries to keep him fresh for the long haul, will conspire to keep Lacyís yardage totals in check, but being a three-down back on the best offense in football is an incredibly valuable commodity. Heís the element of the Packer offense that keeps defenses honest, and his touchdown potential, combined with his work in the passing game, make him one of the highest floor RB1s in fantasy football. With health, expect Lacy to again approach top-5 totals.

News From The Past 90 Days
McCarthy calls out Lacy for being too heavy
"He cannot play at the weight he played at this year"
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jan 18, 6:55 pm

Green Bay Packers
Packers coach Mike McCarthy has put RB Eddie Lacy on notice. "He's got a lot of work to do," McCarthy said. "His offseason last year was not good enough and he never recovered from it. He cannot play at the weight he played at this year." (Rob Demovsky on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Lacy has walked a fine line between being a big back with nimble feet and just being a big back for most of his three seasons in the league. James Starks is a free agent the Packers haven't shown much interest in retaining and will be 30 in February, so Green Bay may look to address the position via the draft. Lacy will be in a contract year in 2016, so it should come as little shock if he returns to fantasy prominence if he can get his conditioning back in order.


Injury Packers work out RB Montee Ball
Green Bay desperate for rushing help
By: John Canario | Fri Dec 4, 5:25 pm

Green Bay Packers
The Packers are clearly searching for answers in their running game, and Friday they worked out former Broncos running back Montee Ball. ESPNís Field Yates first reported Ballís workout. A second-round pick in 2013, Ball was released by the Broncos in the preseason. He had one touchdown run last season. The Packers started James Starks at running back in Thursday nightís win over the Lions despite Eddie Lacy having posted consecutive 100-yard games. Aaron Rodgers led the team in rushing in the game with 27 yards. (NBC Sports)

FFToday's Take: Even if the Packers sign Ball, there's no guarantee that he'll usurp James Starks or Eddie Lacy as the team's new lead back. Forget about Ball, unless you have space on your bench for a low-chance flier that's unlikely to pay dividends.
