Eddie Lacy rushed 17 times for 103 yards in the Packers' Week 3 win over the Lions.
Lacy looked unstoppable all game, but unfortunately Aaron Rodgers hogged all of the touchdowns. Lacy was curiously not in the game on a first-and-goal from the two in the second quarter, but he was the focal point of the offense with the Packers' nursing a big lead in the second half. He rumbled for 61 yards on 11 carries after the break, busting through tackle attempts and always tacking on extra yards after contact. The numbers have not been spectacular, but Lacy has looked great through three weeks. He will have a tough matchup against the Giants after the Week 4 bye, but he will be a must-start in that game.

Packers RBs coach Ben Sirmans confirmed Eddie Lacy needs more touches.

"If you combined his stats, you’d say he’s been relatively productive," Sirmans said. "Each game he’s had an explosive run. In terms of where he is physically, it’s just a matter of time for him to really start rolling." The Packers plan to establish more of a running game after giving Lacy just 26 carries through the first two weeks. Lacy is our No. 14 running back for Week 3.

Coach Mike McCarthy and the rest of the Packers' coaching staff said they want to get Eddie Lacy more carries moving forward.

"The analysis of our offense after two games, the running backs have not been given enough opportunities," McCarthy said. "That's something I need to focus on." Lacy has performed well when given his chances, but he has just 26 carries through two games, turning them into 111 yards. "I wish he was averaging 24 handoffs a game," said RBs coach Ben Sirmans. "We’ll see when that happens." It could happen if the Packers stop giving James Starks (0.9 YPC) so many snaps.

Eddie Lacy had 12 carries for 50 yards in Sunday night's Week 2 loss to the Vikings.

Lacy looked good on limited carries, but the Packers didn't have any commitment to their run game. He failed to convert his only goal-line attempt in the first quarter. With the Packers playing from behind, Lacy lost work to James Starks, who finished with five fewer snaps. Lacy's lack of touchdowns are a concern, but he's averaging 4.3 YPC through two games.
Sep 19 - 12:15 AM

Eddie Lacy rushed 14 times for 61 yards in Green Bay's Week 1 win over the Jaguars, adding one catch for 17 yards.

While still no one's idea of svelte, Lacy looked noticeably quicker than last year's bulked down model, showing good spring between the tackles. Lacy also did a fair amount of tackle dragging. He deserved more than 14 carries in a wide-open game. Most importantly, he out-touched James Starks 15-5, and rarely needed breaks. He'll remain a high-end RB2 for next week's game against the Vikings.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Eddie Lacy is "ready to go" for Week 1.

"Eddie has had a solid camp, obviously comfortable in the offense and the things we’re asking him to do," said McCarthy. Lacy lost 20-plus pounds this offseason, but his conditioning was still an issue in training camp. His strong preseason suggests he'll have a full Week 1 workload. Lacy is a low-end RB1 against Jacksonville.

Eddie Lacy rushed seven times for 45 yards in the Packers' third preseason game Friday night.

He remained the clear first-team back, with James Starks eventually rotating in. Through three preseason contests, Lacy has amassed 114 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries, good for a 5.7 YPC average. Lacy is back in shape in his contract year. He offers double-digit TD potential in the third round.

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.

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.
Aug 15 - 8:11 AM

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.
Jul 27 - 12:59 AM

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.
