Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls have "equal status" in the team's backfield.
"There's no reason to have any criteria for it right now because we like our guys, and really, equal status now is good for us," Carroll said. "We'll see how they do." The Seahawks are on bye for Week 6. Both backs received 10 touches in Sunday's win over the Rams, though Rawls out-snapped Lacy 32-19. We wouldn't expect anything in the way of clarity any time soon. Both backs will be on the RB3/4 borderline for Week 7 against the Giants. Oct 10 - 3:38 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed nine times for 19 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 win over the Rams.

He added a nine-yard reception. Lacy got the "start," but as feared, was in an even rotation with Thomas Rawls, who also totaled 10 touches. J.D. McKissic caught three passes as third-down back. Lacy did have 1-2 nice runs, but it was a disappointing day against a Rams D that had been getting torched on the ground. This situation still has no clarity, and no fantasy upside.
Oct 8 - 7:49 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks are "treating" Eddie Lacy as their starter.

Lacy has mainly been a spectator through the first handful of games (he was a healthy scratch in Weeks 2 and 3), though he did rush for 52 yards on 11 carries last week after Chris Carson went down with a fractured leg. Lacy will get the first crack at replacing Carson, though a committee is still likely with Thomas Rawls, J.D. McKissic and C.J. Prosise (when healthy) each playing important roles. Lacy gets the Rams in Week 5.
Oct 8 - 9:36 AM

Eddie Lacy had 11 carries for 52 yards in Week 4 against the Colts.

Lacy didn't get most of his carries until Chris Carson was carted off late in the fourth quarter. He ended up leading Seattle in rushing and is in line to start next week with Carson sidelined. Lacy will face competition for early-down carries from Thomas Rawls, but his ROS outlook is trending up.
Oct 2 - 12:00 AM

Eddie Lacy is active for Week 3 against the Titans.

Lacy was a healthy scratch in Week 2. He should remain buried behind Chris Carson and Thomas Rawls in the running back rotation.
Sep 24 - 2:35 PM

Eddie Lacy said he is staying as "positive" as he can after being a healthy scratch Week 2.

"It was my first time that happened to me or whatever, so I really don't know what think of it, just do what I can do," Lacy said. "I've just got to continue to be me, go out and practice the same way I've been practicing and see what happens week by week." The owner of a rose-colored lens factory, coach Pete Carroll said he "wish[es]" Lacy could have been active Week 2, and he will still have a role moving forward. Perhaps that will be true if there are injuries in the backfield, but Lacy has no fantasy value as of now. He can be dropped in redraft leagues.

Eddie Lacy is inactive for Week 2 against the 49ers.

With Thomas Rawls back, Lacy is fourth on the depth chart behind Rawls, C.J. Prosise, and rookie Chris Carson. At this point, it would not be surprising if he is cut. He can be dropped in all leagues.
Sep 17 - 3:00 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed five times for three yards in the Seahawks' Week 1 loss to the Packers.

The obvious caveat is that Mike Daniels and the Packers' front seven was caving in the Seahawks' offensive line nearly every play, but it wasn't a problem for seventh-rounder Chris Carson, who generated 39 yards on his six totes. Lacy got the "start," but was quickly rotating with the rookie. Lacy looked like the same back he was this summer, running in molasses like a player who has suffered one too many ankle injuries. It's hard to see the upside in Lacy's fantasy future, especially if Thomas Rawls returns next week against the 49ers.
Sep 10 - 8:01 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said Eddie Lacy is "ready for a full load" if needed Week 1 against the Packers.

With Thomas Rawls (ankle) questionable for now, it could be Lacy and seventh-round rookie Chris Carson on early downs with C.J. Prosise handling the pass-game work. Lacy looked close to done this preseason, so even if Rawls is ruled out it would be hard to trust Lacy. If the Seahawks take the hot-hand approach, our money would be on Carson running circles around Lacy.
Sep 6 - 4:04 PM

Eddie Lacy is listed with the second-team offense on Seattle's Week 1 depth chart.

Seattle's depth chart matches the summer eye test, as Lacy was anemic on the preseason field. Thomas Rawls is listed as the starter, but is questionable for Week 1 with an ankle injury. If Rawls sits, Lacy will likely split carries with fellow second-teamer Chris Carson while C.J. Prosise handles passing downs.
Sep 5 - 5:41 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed four times for 21 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game.

Lacy got the start with Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise sidelined, and he came out strong with an 11-yard run on his first play, although the blocking deserves most of the credit. Seventh-rounder Chris Carson was on the field the very next play and saw plenty of work even while Lacy was in the game, suggesting either Lacy is still not in shape or the Seahawks do not plan to use him as their lead back -- or perhaps both. Looking slow and at best in a timeshare, Lacy is someone to avoid in the seventh round.
Aug 25 - 10:12 PM

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.
Aug 13 - 9:11 PM

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.
Aug 7 - 6:27 PM

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.
