Eddie Lacy rushed six times for 30 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' second preseason game.

Lacy added a three-yard catch. He finished off the Packers' impressive opening drive with a seven-yard touchdown and looked nimble on a nine-yard gain to finish off his day. Lacy is averaging six yards a carry this preseason. He is locked in as a top-five fantasy back.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy wants to keep Eddie Lacy fresh by limiting his touches.

It's not a big red flag for fantasy owners, just a reminder that Green Bay is never going to use Lacy the way Dallas ran DeMarco Murray into the ground last season. Including the postseason, Lacy logged 286 carries in 2014. That's 19 fewer than he posted as a rookie. Lacy's rushing attempt total dropped a bit, but his workload as a receiver increased last season (42 catches for 427 yards). Any way you slice it, he's still a top-five fantasy running back.

Eddie Lacy dropped just two of his 57 targeted passes in 2014, good for the lowest drop rate on the Packers.

Backup James Starks dropped three of his 31 targets. Drop numbers aren't necessarily predictive and delve in small samples, but Lacy's growth as a key cog in Green Bay's passing game was a huge boon to his fantasy value. And that should be predictive, ensuring Lacy remains a three-down back in 2015. Only five NFL running backs had more 2014 receiving yards than Lacy: Le'Veon Bell, Matt Forte, Fred Jackson, Roy Helu, and Shane Vereen.
Feb 8 - 11:13 AM

Eddie Lacy rushed 21 times for 73 yards in the Packers' NFC title game loss.

Lacy was running angry early, spinning off defenders and showing truly excellent feet. He ultimately had little room to run, however, and was slowed late by an apparent leg injury. James Starks played big chunks of the second half, but Lacy re-emerged with the game on the line. It was a disappointing end to a stellar sophomore campaign, one in which Lacy averaged 4.6 yards per carry and made major strides as a pass catcher. Lacy's leg drive is amongst the best in the league, while he has quicks that belie his 230-pound frame. He'll be a first-round pick in all formats of fantasy next season.

Eddie Lacy (knee) and Aaron Rodgers (calf) are active for Week 20 against the Seahawks.

Both players were listed probable, so they were never in danger of missing the NFC title game. Inactive for the Packers are WR Jeff Janis, RB DuJuan Harris, CB Demetri Goodson, LB Carl Bradford, OL Garth Gerhart, TE Justin Perillo, and DT Bruce Gaston.

Eddie Lacy (knee) is probable for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Seahawks.

Lacy was added to the injury report on Thursday with a minor knee issue, but will be all systems go for his normal allotment of carries against Seattle. Jonathan Stewart averaged 5.4 YPC against the Seahawks in the Divisional Round.

Eddie Lacy was added to the Packers' injury report on Thursday with a knee issue, getting in a limited practice.

Coach Mike McCarthy described the move as precautionary. "I think Eddie will be ready to go on Sunday," McCarthy said. "It's just, coach was nervous. ... I was just being conservative, so I pulled him in the middle of the practice." It's obviously something to keep an eye on, but for now, there's no reason to believe Lacy won't be ready for his normal role against the Seahawks.
Jan 15 - 2:42 PM

Sunday's weather forecast in Seattle calls for high temperatures of 52 degrees and a low of 44.

Eddie Lacy's asthma can be exacerbated by cold weather, as we saw when he suffered an attack during last week's win over the Cowboys. The mild temps in Seattle mean another attack this week would be a surprise. Expect Lacy to handle the vast majority of running back reps, relegating James Starks to strict backup duties.
Jan 15 - 8:47 AM

Eddie Lacy confirmed an asthma attack cost him much of the second quarter of Sunday's Divisional Round win over Dallas.

The cold weather at Lambeau "inflamed" Lacy's asthma, and James Starks was forced into action. "You know your body is good enough to go out and play," said Lacy. "But ... you just can't breathe. And it's a breathing thing. It's not something you want to go out and risk ... risk something bad happening. There's nothing I can do about it. It's a medical condition. I take my inhaler, I do everything I'm supposed to do. When it happens, it happens." Lacy still totaled 111 yards and will be fine for the NFC Championship Game next weekend.
Jan 11 - 10:40 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed 19 times for 101 yards and caught a ten-yard pass in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

Lacy contributed seven runs of five yards or longer, including a powerful 29-yard scamper in the fourth quarter that helped seal the game. Lacy was noticeably absent from this contest for long stretches, perhaps battling his asthma in the cold weather. Expect "Eddie Too Fat" to be a critical component of Green Bay's passing attack in the NFC Championship Game at CenturyLink Field.
Jan 11 - 4:15 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed 26 times for 100 yards in the Packers' Week 17 win over the Lions, adding three receptions for 26 additional yards.

Lacy came out angry, spinning off tacklers as he racked up 35 yards across his first three carries. He wasn't as effective thereafter, losing a fumble while coming perilously close to a second cough up. Either way, Lacy closes out the regular season having surpassed 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his final nine games. For the year, he totaled 1,566 yards and 13 touchdowns. He now gets two weeks to rest up for the Pack's Divisional Round game.

Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Eddie Lacy (leg) is "fine."

Lacy was rested late in Sunday's easy win over the Bucs with an injury. It was never believed to be serious, and McCarthy confirms that. "I have no concerns about Eddie," said McCarthy. He'll be good for Week 17 against the Lions.
Mon, Dec 22, 2014 06:34:00 PM

Eddie Lacy had 17 carries for 99 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Bucs.

Lacy broke a tackle and powered his way to a 44-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He gained consistent yardage against the Bucs all game, averaging 5.8 YPC. Lacy went over 1,000 yards on the season with the performance. The Packers rested him late with a leg injury, but he shouldn't miss any practice time.

Eddie Lacy (eye) is active for Week 16 against the Bucs.

Lacy has been dealing with an issue with his contact lens, but his status was never in doubt. RT Bryan Bulaga (concussion) is also active. The Packers inactives are QB Scott Tolzien, CB Davon House, LB Carl Bradford, C Garth Gerhart, TE Justin Perillo, WR Jeff Janis, and DT Bruce Gaston.
