Eddie Lacy rushed nine times for 45 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game.
Lacy was moving tonight, taking the rock and bursting through the hole in no-nonsense fashion. He looked focused and fit, and is now up to 13 carries for 69 yards (5.3 YPC) through two exhibition tilts. The only thing preventing Lacy from being an elite RB1 is himself. Aug 18 - 9:12 PM

Eddie Lacy said he feels "more explosive" this season.

One of the biggest offseason storylines was Lacy's weight, which reportedly ballooned into the 260s last season. Unsurprisingly, Lacy struggled to be effective at that weight, and he worked hard to get back into shape over the offseason. That work was evident in the first preseason game when Lacy opened with four straight carries for 24 yards. Healthy and in shape, Lacy looks poised for a bounce-back season.

Eddie Lacy had four carries for 24 yards in the Packers’ preseason opener.

Lacy started, but James Starks saw reps with the first team. He showed some of his 2014 form, getting 16 of his yards after contact. In shape and entering a contract year, Lacy is a solid bounce back candidate.
Aug 14 - 6:05 AM

Eddie Lacy is listed as the starting running back on the Packers' initial depth chart.

It's not exactly a surprise, but it's great news the Pack weren't forced to list Lacy as the No. 2 for motivational or conditioning purposes. James Starks will begin the year with a big role, but it's up to Lacy whether or not he keeps it. Lacy is the far more talented player, and the runner the Packers want leading their backfield.
Aug 2 - 4:37 PM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Pete Dougherty estimates Eddie Lacy reported to camp "around the 240-pound mark."

It would be a 20-pound loss from where Lacy reported at last year's camp. Lacy's ideal weight is 231-235, but he could easily sweat off several more pounds practicing in the heat. He remains a boom-bust investment in fantasy drafts.

Eddie Lacy avoided the Packers' active/PUP list to open training camp.

In addition to injuries, active/PUP is a list where players who report out of shape are placed, too. Twitter pictures of Lacy indicate he is well conditioned and physically fit, while coach Mike McCarthy declared "Eddie is ready" when asked about Lacy on Tuesday morning. Lacy obviously has bust risk as a fantasy pick, but he also offers league-leading TD upside in his contract year.
Jul 26 - 11:50 AM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel confirms Eddie Lacy reported to Packers training camp weighing 260 pounds last July.

That's 29 pounds above Lacy's Combine weigh-in. Per the Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn, "estimates in June" were that Lacy had dropped 15-20 pounds, bringing his weight into the 240-245 range. One NFC personnel director noted post-college weight gains aren't out of the norm for ex-Alabama running backs. "Trent Richardson was like 20 pounds heavier when he reported (to the Colts) than when he came out of there," said the executive. "He lost all his quickness. Lacy's got a little bit of a knucklehead in him, too."
Jul 22 - 11:29 PM

Eddie Lacy is expected to do more workouts with P90X founder Tony Horton before training camp.

Lacy drew raves for his work with Horton following the season. He reported to OTAs in the 240-pound range, but the Packers still have concerns with his shape. Lacy is on track to regain his starting role, but can’t afford any conditioning issues entering a contract year.
Jun 15 - 5:11 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he's more concerned about Eddie Lacy's body composition than his weight.

The Packers measure their players' body fat via annual DXA scans. "Every player has a body composition, so that's what we focus on," said McCarthy. "That's a daily focus and evaluation between the weight room and the training room and the nutrition." Lacy is listed at 231, but ballooned above 260 during a career-worst 2015 season. The contract-year running back is in the 240s now, but the Packers will focus more on Lacy's body fat than weight.
Jun 14 - 10:59 AM

A source tells ESPN's Rob Demovsky Eddie Lacy still weighs "in the 240s."

It means Lacy was tipping the scales near 260 last season, as he's believed to have lost 15-18 pounds. Lacy weighed in at 231 at the Combine. Speaking Wednesday, coach Mike McCarthy suggested the team still wants Lacy to lose more weight. "Eddie will be fine," McCarthy said. "I believe he'll hit the target that we're all looking for when the lights come on." McCarthy also reiterated that Lacy "cannot play at the weight he was at (last) year." Lacy should have more P90X on tap for the summer.
May 24 - 5:04 PM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky said Eddie Lacy is one of the "winners" of the offseason.

Despite conditioning concerns putting his future in question earlier this offseason, Lacy is entering the summer in good shape -- in every sense of the phrase. Lacy reportedly has shed 15-18 pounds, and that weight loss likely gave GM Ted Thompson the confidence to ignore the running back position both in free agency and the draft. Lacy now looks poised to enter his contract year as the clear lead back, and a good performance should earn him a nice new contract. Lacy is a great target in the second round of fantasy drafts.

A source tells ESPN's Rob Demovsky that Eddie Lacy has lost 15-18 pounds since the end of last season.

"He looked good," Aaron Rodgers said after seeing Lacy at Monday's workout. "Obviously been doing a lot of P90X." Lacy drew similarly positive reviews from Jordy Nelson and Mike Daniels. Multiple photos have circulated on social media showing a cut up Lacy looking nothing like the out-of-shape bruiser he was in 2015. Headed into the final year of his rookie contract, Lacy will probably be in the best shape of his NFL career.
Apr 18 - 3:03 PM

In-house reporter Mike Spofford suggests the Packers could move on from Eddie Lacy after this year.

Lacy’s conditioning led to career lows in total yards (946) and touchdowns (5) last season. The Packers have a window to extend him while his value is low, but are expected to let Lacy play out his contract year. Reportedly in the best shape of his life this offseason, Lacy is a prime bounce-back candidate.
Apr 16 - 4:21 PM's Albert Breer reports Eddie Lacy has undergone a "remarkable" physical transformation this offseason.

What Breer considers "remarkable" is Lacy's "redistribution of weight" from his midsection to his shoulders and arms. "I know the people around Eddie Lacy really feel like the Packers are going to be happy with what they see when Lacy reports for the offseason program next week," Breer said. It jibes with what everyone else has been saying this offseason, including coach Mike McCarthy. Lacy appears to have gotten the message after his sluggish 2015.
Apr 12 - 2:53 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy believes Eddie Lacy's weight-loss program is going well.

"I saw a picture or two," McCarthy said. "It sounds like things are going well for him. He looked like that rookie guy." Lacy has spent the majority of the offseason working out with P90X founder Tony Horton, with the sessions ongoing in California. It seems like a given Lacy will report to camp in great shape, but the test will be maintaining it through a grueling season.
