Eddie Lacy rushed 10 times for 69 yards with a touchdown and caught three passes for 45 yards with another score in Sunday's Week 11 blowout of the Eagles.

Lacy was a force, bowling over would-be tacklers and dragging them -- especially on a 32-yard screen pass that went for a score in the fourth quarter. Lacy's recent involvement in the pass game (4.2 catches per game over last four) is especially encouraging as he continues to distance himself from strict backup James Starks. Although Lacy isn't going to get 20 carries a day in an Aaron Rodgers offense that is unstoppable through the air, he now has seven touchdowns in 10 games. He'll be a solid RB1 against the Vikings in Week 12.
Nov 16 - 7:22 PM

Eddie Lacy had 14 carries for 50 yards in Sunday night's win over the Bears, adding three catches for 68 yards and a touchdown.

Lacy was held in check on the ground, but took a screen pass for a 56-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He tied Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb with a team-high six targets. After getting off to a slow start, Lacy now has at least 70 total yards or a touchdown in four of his last five games. Lacy will take on the Eagles in Week 11.
Nov 10 - 12:19 AM

Eddie Lacy rushed for 59 yards on 13 carries in the Packers' Sunday night loss to the Saints, adding 123 yards on eight catches.

Lacy had success in the running game early, but the Packers were forced to play from behind in the second half. He was heavily involved in the pass offense, and broke multiple tackles on a highlight 67-yard catch. After getting off to a slow start, Lacy has at least 70 total yards or a touchdown in three of his last four games. Lacy will be a top-15 option when the Packers come out of their bye. He's on pace for 210 carries, 856 yards, and eight touchdowns.
Oct 27 - 12:37 AM

Eddie Lacy rushed 12 times for 63 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Week 7 rout of the Panthers, adding three catches for an additional 10 yards.

Lacy ran angry, and shed tackles all afternoon against a Panthers defense allowing a league-worst 5.5 YPC coming into Week 7. He continued to rotate with James Starks, but got the Pack's first two series to himself. The Pack are serious about going with a committee, but Lacy is a clear 1A to Starks' 1B. Lacy now has four scores over his past four games. He'll be a top-16 option against the Saints in Week 8.
Oct 19 - 5:10 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed 14 times for 40 yards in Sunday's Week 6 win at Miami.

In what has become the expectation, Lacy didn't score a touchdown so he hurt fantasy owners. He also rotated plenty with James Starks (eight carries, two catches), and barely played on the game-winning drive Aaron Rodgers engineered. Lacy, now averaging just 3.82 YPC, is bordering on RB2 status heading into a home game against the Panthers. The good news is that the Packers project to be in the red zone a ton during that contest.
Oct 12 - 4:52 PM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel believes it "appears the Packers plan to maintain a split" in the backfield with Eddie Lacy and James Starks each playing 50 percent of the snaps.

After Starks didn't see a carry in Week 4, he out-snapped Lacy 29-28 in the Week 5 win over the Vikings and finished with 12 carries to Lacy's 13. While most chalked it up to the Packers winning in a rout, the coaching staff apparently wants to keep the split 50-50. "To keep them fresh, I think is very important," RBs coach Sam Gash said. "James has warranted playing time." The Packers view both as "complete" and interchangeable backs. It's not good news for Lacy owners. But it's no reason to keep him out of lineups. In the end we'd expect it to be more of a 60-40 or 65-35 split in favor of Lacy. He needs to build off his Week 5.
Oct 10 - 11:23 AM

Eddie Lacy had 13 carries for 105 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday night's Week 5 win over the Vikings.

He added three catches for 27 yards. Lacy was finally able to break out after being held under 50 yards in the Packers' first four games. He reversed the field and broke two tackles on his first touchdown, and trucked Vikings S Robert Blanton on his way to the end-zone for his second score. Despite his early struggles, Lacy is back to being an every-week RB1. He'll take on the Dolphins in Week 6.
Oct 2 - 11:46 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed 17 times for 48 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 4 win at Chicago.

Lacy was able to punch in a 2-yard score in the first quarter and later had a 1-yard touchdown called back by penalty. But he struggled to pick up yards again, looking sluggish and rarely getting any momentum into the second level. Through four games, he's yet to top 3.3 YPC in a single contest and is on pace for 212 carries, 644 yards and four touchdowns. The scores are going to rise in this high-powered Packers offense, but Lacy's inability to tear through this Bears defense is very concerning. He faces the Vikings on a short week Thursday.
Sep 28 - 4:30 PM

After watching film of the Week 3 loss at Detroit, Eddie Lacy said he needs to work on keeping his pads low.

Lacy is looking for answers as to why he's struggled so bad through three games. But the underlying stats are good, as his yards after contact per attempt and missed tackle rate are both up from last season. He's just been blown up in the backfield too often by three really elite run defenses. It's reasonable to think Lacy will break out against a Bears defense that ranks 26th in the NFL right now.
Sep 25 - 11:54 AM

Coach Mike McCarthy called out Eddie Lacy at Monday's press conference, and said Lacy "needs to play better."

"I’m not going to do this anymore. I don’t correct individuals in the media. We’ve seen the film, corrections have been made, our running game wasn’t nearly what it needed to be. Not even close," McCarthy said. Lacy has managed just 113 yards and zero touchdowns on 36 carries through three games. He also took a safety and lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown on Sunday. To his defense, Lacy has faced the Seahawks, Jets, and Lions through three games. That's tough sledding. He needs to turn it around against the Bears in Week 4.
Sep 22 - 8:24 PM

Eddie Lacy said the Packers have to figure out better ways to run the ball.

"I don't know if I have to be more patient or speed things up but one way or another I'm responsible for the run game," Lacy said after rushing 11 times for 36 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions. Perhaps it's just a case of playing three of the league's best run defenses in a row to start the season: Seahawks, Jets, Lions. We wouldn't be selling Lacy low with cupcake matchups against the Bears and Vikings on deck.
Sep 22 - 8:36 AM

Eddie Lacy was bottled up in the Packers' Week 3 loss to the Lions, rushing 11 times for only 36 yards, also losing a fumble.

He added one catch for nine yards, and was also stopped for a safety. The fumble was Lacy's first since last Week 1. Lacy looked a bit lethargic today, but a good run defense — Lacy has faced three of the league's best in the season's first three weeks — can do that. Things finally open up in Week 4, where the Pack travel to Chicago to take on the Bears' bottom-three run unit. The Bears will be playing on a short week. Lacy should finally start earning his RB1 money. Frustration is understandable, but trading Lacy now would be the ultimate sell low. There should be much better days ahead.
Sep 21 - 4:23 PM

Coach Mike McCarthy said he regretted not getting Eddie Lacy more touches in the Week 2 win over the Jets.

Lacy got just three first-half carries as the Packers fell behind 21-3. And just like the Seahawks, the Jets chose to play with a single high safety for much of the game. That aggressive kind of scheme won't be a weekly occurrence though, as the vast majority of defensive coordinators will fear Aaron Rodgers and play coverage. Lacy has another difficult matchup in Week 3 against the Lions, but then the floodgates will open.
Sep 18 - 8:22 AM

Eddie Lacy rushed 13 times for 43 yards and caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Jets.

Lacy's Week 1 concussion was in the rearview mirror, but a rough matchup was not. The Jets' elite front seven gave up no holes and were sure-handed in their tackles, leading to a long run of 10 yards for Lacy. He missed out on a goal-line chance when Aaron Rodgers went play-action from the 1-yard line and hit Randall Cobb for a score. Lacy has another very difficult in Week 3 against the Lions, but then gets two good spots against the Bears and Vikings. Owners need to hang on tight and wait for the tide to turn.
