Eddie Lacy rushed six times for 20 yards and caught his lone target for three yards in the Seahawks' second preseason game.
He has 30 yards on 10 preseason carries with the lone reception. Lacy started tonight only because Thomas Rawls is battling a mild ankle sprain, and even so merely shared first-team duties with rookie Chris Carson, who played 9-of-22 first-team snaps to Lacy's 13. Lacy has looked neither powerful nor explosive this preseason. We would advise avoiding him before the late rounds of drafts. Aug 18 - 11:52 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed four times for ten yards in the Seahawks' preseason opener.

Whereas Thomas Rawls worked with Russell Wilson and the first-team group, Lacy didn’t enter the game until Trevone Boykin came on for Seattle’s second drive. Lacy has been running behind Rawls in practice and did so again in the preseason opener. Lacy did flash power on Sunday night, although he got stuffed on a second-quarter goal-line carry. This backfield appears headed for a three-man RBBC that also includes C.J. Prosise.

Coach Pete Carroll revealed Eddie Lacy hit his 250 pounds or less requirement at his latest weigh-in last week.

He earned another $55,000 bonus. Lacy has had a very quiet camp as he works his way into shape, learns a new offense, and recovers from ankle surgery. But ace Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia expects Lacy to get the nod as the Week 1 starter. Thomas Rawls is lurking in the tall grass as he's back to 100 percent and is well worth a late-round flier at his current double-digit round ADP.

The Seahawks haven't revealed if Eddie Lacy hit his target at his latest weigh-in.

Lacy reached his May and June targets to much fanfare, but neither the team nor his agent will reveal his July results. It's a tacit admission Lacy didn't hit his goal of 250 after six weeks away from the team. Despite the innuendo, coach Pete Carroll said on Tuesday he remains "fired up" about Lacy.
Aug 3 - 9:23 PM

ESPN's Sheil Kapadia projects Eddie Lacy as the Seahawks' starting running back.

He won't be handed the job—he'll face stiff competition from Thomas Rawls—but if Lacy's surgically-repaired ankle doesn't stand in his way, he should be the favorite for early-down work this season. Lacy must also be diligent with his conditioning after struggling with weight gain in recent years. Even if Lacy does everything he's supposed to, Rawls and passing-down specialist C.J. Prosise should still occupy important roles in the Seahawks' ground attack.

According to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, it's "unclear" if Eddie Lacy (ankle) will be 100 percent for the start of training camp.

Lacy was limited at OTAs while recovering from ankle surgery and that might still be the case when camp opens on July 30. The 27-year-old is hoping for a fresh start in Seattle after his last two seasons in Green Bay were derailed by injuries and ineffectiveness brought on by weight struggles. Thomas Rawls will be his biggest threat for early-down work.
Jul 21 - 3:50 PM

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta said his "best guess" is Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls will "take a fairly equal share of the basedown carries."

Condotta prefaced his prediction by saying performance will dictate the carry split, but his guess is still notable after the Seahawks paid Lacy like a starting running back in March. Rawls has earned praise for his offseason work, however, while Lacy has been sidelined recovering from an ankle injury. With weight, health, and now workload concerns, Lacy is one of the riskiest early-round picks this year, but his upside could be worth it.

Eddie Lacy has met his June weight target, coming in under 250 pounds.

Monday was the second of seven weigh-ins. Lacy nets $55,000 every time he hits the target. The Seahawks want Lacy to be at 245 for the regular season. Lacy appears to be taking his conditioning as seriously as ever.

Eddie Lacy's next weigh-in is on Monday.

This will be the second of Lacy's seven weigh-ins. He'll hit a $55,000 incentive if he weighs under 250 pounds. Lacy met his first goal last month, checking in two pounds below his target weight of 255. The ex-Packer recently began the P90X 30-day challenge in an effort to shed weight.

Eddie Lacy is doing the P90X 30-day challenge in his latest effort to drop weight.

Lacy recently weighed 253. His goal is to get to 245 by Week 1. "The 30-day challenge, it’s pretty much something else that I can do to help me reach my goal, reach what I have to do to stay in condition and be in better condition," Lacy said. Lacy earns $55,000 in incentives if he weighs 250 in July and August, and $55,000 each time he weighs in below 245 during the season.
Jun 4 - 2:01 PM

Eddie Lacy (ankle) is expected to be cleared for training camp.

Lacy still isn't fully over the ankle injury that IR'd him last year. Coach Pete Carroll expects him to be ready for the start of camp next month. Lacy weighed in at 253-pounds earlier this offseason, but needs to get down to 245 for Week 1.

Coach Pete Carroll expects the Seahawks' running game to come "roaring right back" in 2017.

"With the quarterback being a mess and the running back situation, everybody being banged up, we were just unable to find it," said Carroll of last year's disappointment. "So I think we'll come roaring right back at it." Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise have both recovered from their injuries while free agent signing Eddie Lacy was brought in to take the lead role on early downs. Seattle's backfield looks good on paper but Rawls, Prosise and Lacy all carry significant risk heading into the 2017 fantasy campaign.

Eddie Lacy's contract includes bonuses for games played and rushing yards.

Lacy's weight incentives have gotten the attention, but he will also earn bonuses for on-field performance. Starting at 800 yards, the bonuses run through 1,200, and are worth a total of $1.3 million. Lacy will also get $62,500 for each week he's on the 46-man roster. It's a smart contract structure for a player with Lacy's history of injury and conditioning issues.

Eddie Lacy checked in at 253 pounds during his first weigh-in with the Seahawks.

The NFL offseason is amazing. Lacy needed to weigh under 255 pounds to earn a $55,000 bonus. The Seahawks want Lacy to be under 250 by the summer and maintain a playing weight of 245 during the season.
May 15 - 12:58 PM

New Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy's contract includes monthly weight clauses.

Lacy gets $55,000 for every month he meets the team's target weight. It's 255 for May, 250 for June and August, and 245 for the season. It jibes with Pete Carroll's Tuesday assertion that the Seahawks want Lacy to play in the 240s. Even with Lacy currently in the 260s, they're perfectly reasonable goals. Lacy will be on the wrong side of a career crossroads if he can't get in shape this season.
