Eddie Lacy delivered 105 yards on 17 carries and caught four of five targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' Week 12 loss to the Bears.
This was easily Lacy’s best performance of the year. In his second game back from a groin injury, Lacy looked spry, dodging tackles and showing a nice burst. As he usually does when he’s on his game, Lacy got low and bullied his way to extra yards. Lacy’s 29-yard run on his first carry of the game was his longest of the season. Later he added a touchdown on a 25-yard catch-and-run from Aaron Rodgers, though he almost blew it by letting go of the ball right as he reached the goal line. Lacy was benched after fumbling at the end of an 18-yard run in the second quarter but was back out for the start of the second half. Now that he’s been reinserted into the starting lineup, fantasy owners can safely pencil Lacy in as an every-week RB2. He’ll get the Lions in Week 13. Nov 27 - 12:20 AM

Eddie Lacy (ankle) is listed as probable for Thursday night's Week 12 game against the Bears.

Lacy is coming off his biggest workload of the season, but will remain in a timeshare with James Starks. He's a boom-or-bust RB2.
Nov 25 - 4:28 PM

Eddie Lacy (ankle) was upgraded to "full" in Tuesday's practice.

Lacy will be good to go for Thanksgiving night against the Bears. Coach Mike McCarthy has claimed he'll stick with a timeshare in the backfield, but we certainly expect Fat Eddie to get an opportunity to establish the "hot hand." With James Starks still looming, Lacy is a lower-end RB2 for the time being.
Nov 24 - 4:33 PM

Eddie Lacy (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in Monday's practice.

The Packers did not practice on Monday, but are forced to issue a would-be injury report because they're playing on Thursday night. We'll be interested to see how Lacy's body bounces back on a short week after he logged 23 touches in Sunday's drubbing of the Vikings. Fat Eddie is probably best viewed as a boom-or-bust RB2 in fantasy leagues on Thanksgiving.
Nov 23 - 4:25 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed 22 times for 100 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for six yards Week 11 against the Vikings.

James Starks started the game, but the backfield was a timeshare in the first half before Lacy took over in the second. Lacy easily out-snapped Starks after the break and appeared to reestablish himself as the lead back. Lacy looked close to vintage all game, showing the vision to find cutback lanes and small creases and the power to create yards after contact. He dropped a sick spin move on a 27-yard gain in the second quarter. Lacy was still seen limping a bit on the sideline and did not look to completely have his burst back, but he played as well as he has all season. It will be difficult to completely trust Lacy's workload moving forward, but he will be a solid RB2 option in a good matchup against the Bears on Thanksgiving.
Nov 22 - 7:45 PM

Eddie Lacy (groin) is active for Week 11 against the Vikings.

James Starks is still expected to start, but the backfield should be close to an even timeshare. Neither player is better than an RB3 in a difficult matchup. Green Bay declared WR Ty Montgomery, WR Jared Abbrederis, QB Brett Hundley, CB LaDarius Gunter, RB Alonzo Harris, LB Andy Mulumba and OG Lane Taylor inactive for Week 11 against the Vikings.
Nov 22 - 3:00 PM

Eddie Lacy (groin) is listed as probable for Week 11.

Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed James Starks will start Sunday, but Lacy could see close to an even timeshare. Lacy is a low-end RB3/FLEX for Week 11.
Nov 20 - 6:38 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Eddie Lacy (groin) had "one of his better practices" on Thursday.

"Looks like he's bouncing back," added McCarthy. Lacy has battled nagging injuries all year and taking last week off seems to have done him some good. James Starks will draw the start Sunday against Minnesota, but Lacy could still get enough work to warrant lower-end flex consideration. He's No. 31 in RotoPat's Week 11 running back rankings.
Nov 20 - 12:40 PM

Eddie Lacy (groin) is practicing in full for Week 11.

He practiced on a limited basis all last week but was inactive against the Lions. James Starks is still the lead dog in the backfield, leaving Lacy as an RB3 or low-end flex.
Nov 18 - 1:18 PM

Packers declared Eddie Lacy (groin) inactive for Week 10 against the Lions.

Lacy entered the game questionable with the groin injury, but he was able to practice on a limited basis all week. There could be more to this than just injury. James Starks will handle the vast majority of the work in a great matchup with Detroit. He is a high-end RB2 in season long and a great low-priced option in DFS. Green Bay also declared QB Brett Hundley, CB LaDarius Gunter, LB Andy Mulumba, OG Lane Taylor, TE Kennard Backman and WR Ty Montgomery inactive for Week 10.
Nov 15 - 11:30 AM

Eddie Lacy (groin) is questionable for Week 10 against the Lions.

Lacy was limited in practice all week, but he is expected to play. Lacy has been demoted behind James Starks, but coach Mike McCarthy has promised to continue using a "one-two punch." Lacy could get double-digit carries in a great matchup with the Lions. He is a low-end RB3.
Nov 13 - 4:27 PM

Eddie Lacy (groin) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Lacy tweaked his groin against the Panthers, but it's not a concern for Week 10. Though Lacy has temporarily fallen behind James Starks on the depth chart, he's an RB3 for an appealing matchup with the Lions.
Nov 12 - 4:56 PM

Eddie Lacy said he is not sure why he is struggling, but conceded James Starks has "been the better player" this season.

"If I knew the answer to that, we probably wouldn't be having this discussion," Lacy said. "I honestly don't know what it is. Definitely, I'm off to a different start. I'm not playing how I was the previous two years." Lacy dismissed the claims that he is hurt or overweight. Coach Mike McCarthy has tabbed Starks as the starter moving forward but said he plans to "stay with the one-two punch." If Lacy can figure out what ails him, he should get a shot to earn back the starting job.

Eddie Lacy (groin) is practicing in full for Week 10 against the Lions.

Lacy had to leave Week 9 early with a groin issue, but is fine. He's battled a number of nagging lower-body issues this season. They've certainly contributed to Lacy's disappointing year. James Starks is the preferred back to own in Green Bay, but both players will continue to see snaps against Detroit.
Nov 11 - 11:56 AM

Packers OC Edgar Bennett admitted "we definitely need" to get Eddie Lacy "going."

We know, we know, the Packers have been saying this for a couple weeks now, and yet no dice. Perhaps the biggest first-round fantasy bust, we're not sure it's going to happen for Lacy. He looks well overweight and extremely sluggish coming off multiple nagging injuries. Lacy suffered a groin injury Week 9 against the Panthers, but was able to go through a full workout Monday. He should be fine for Week 10 against the Lions. If it doesn't happen against Detroit, it may not happen at all for the third-year back. James Starks may be moving ahead of Lacy for good.
