Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy is inactive for Week 17.

Lacy's disappointing first regular season in Seattle ends with 69 carries for 179 rushing yards and six receptions for 47 receiving yards in nine games played. He probably won't be active if Seattle makes the postseason.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy gets one carry against the Eagles.

Lacy gained three yards on his lone attempt, and he's just mixing in for a few snaps behind Mike Davis right now. Lacy is off the fantasy radar at the moment.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy gets 20 touches against the Niners.

With Mike Davis (groin) out, the Seahawks gave Eddie Lacy another crack at leading the backfield in Week 12. Lacy carried 17 times for 46 yards and added three receptions for 15 yards. Though he wasn't productive on the ground, Thomas Rawls received zero touches in the game. Even if he's set for another 15-20 touches in Week 13, Lacy will be difficult to trust against an Eagles defense that's been playing lights out.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy gets three carries in Week 11.

Lacy gained two yards on his three attempts, as he was behind Mike Davis from the start. Even when Davis injured his groin and was out for the game, Lacy didn't get more opportunities. Perhaps the Seahawks will attempt to feed him a bit if Davis remains out, but Lacy doesn't need to be on fantasy teams right now.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy (groin) was upgraded to a full participant in today's practice.

After being limited yesterday, Lacy appears to be 100% and ready to go for Monday night against the Falcons. His presence complicates the backfield a bit, as it'll likely be a timeshare between he and Eddie Lacy once again. They'll both be low-floor and low-upside FLEX options, with Rawls being the preferred option after Lacy missed last week's game.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy (groin) was limited in practice today.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the team is hopeful Lacy will be able to play on Monday night against Atlanta, and a limited participation in the first practice of the week is a great first step. Consider Lacy likely to play, but we'll get more information regarding Lacy's status tomorrow and Saturday.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy (groin) has been ruled out for tomorrow night.

It was going to be hard for Lacy to play after just injuring his groin early in Sunday's loss to the Redskins. Thomas Rawls will now have the opportunity to run away with the starting running back job for the Seahawks, and it's possible he'll handle 15-20 carries versus the Cardinals. Rawls will be an RB2/FLEX option for Week 9, and Lacy should be considered week-to-week.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy (groin) is doubtful to return against the Redskins.

Lacy started the game and was set to receive a heavy workload, but he's out of the game in the second quarter. Before leaving, Lacy had six carries for 20 yards, and Thomas Rawls will likely get most of the carries for the rest of the game.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

The Seahawks plan on giving Eddie Lacy a lot of work this week.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said at yesterday's press conference, "going to see a lot of Eddie this week." Offensive line coach Tom Cable added that they would like to establish one guy at running back to "get a runner established." This Sunday against the Redskins, Lacy will start the game and get the opportunity to run away with the starting job and a potential workhorse role for Seattle. If he struggles, Thomas Rawls might end up getting the same opportunity in a week or two. Lacy is now a recommended fantasy pickup as a potential 15-20+ carry guy over the second half of the season.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy gets six carries against the Texans.

Houston completely shut down Seattle's run game, as Lacy gained no yards on his six attempts. Thomas Rawls (-1 yards on six carries) also couldn't get anything going, and neither are good fantasy options right now in a split backfield of a team that isn't running the ball that much.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy gets 11 carries in Week 7.

Lacy gained 34 yards on his 11 carries while also adding a nine-yard reception. Lacy's stats were almost identical to Thomas Rawls' (11 carries for 36 yards, one reception for 16 yards), and this looks like it'll be a 50/50 split moving forward—though someone might separate themselves with a huge breakout game. Lacy is a FLEX candidate with a low floor in Week 8 against Houston.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy starts for the Seahawks in win.

As expected, Lacy started the game versus the Rams, and he carried nine times for 19 yards while adding a nine-yard reception. Lacy appears to be getting healthier and more comfortable in the offense, but there wasn’t much room created by the Seattle offensive line for him or Thomas Rawls. It’s difficult to trust him in your starting lineup when they emerge from their Week 6 bye, but Lacy is worth holding onto as someone that could make a difference down the stretch.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Seahawks are "treating" Eddie Lacy as starter at running back, according to Ian Rapoport.

They presumably gave Lacy most of the first-team reps in practice this week after he played well last Sunday against the Colts, so it looks like he might be the starter today against the Rams. Though things certainly did not start off well this season, Lacy has a chance to deliver some solid fantasy value while he tries to make an impact for the Seahawks. He's a FLEX option today, though Thomas Rawls—who is too risky for lineups this week—should not be counted out in the backfield yet.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy rushed 11 times for 52 yards in Sunday's win over the Colts.

Lacy was active over Thomas Rawls, but both likely will be in uniform for the rest of the season after Chris Carson's lower-leg injury. We would consider Rawls the favorite to lead the team in fantasy points in 2017, but Lacy has the momentum right now. Both are worth adds if they were dropped, but Rawls is the priority as the more talented player. The Seahawks take on the Rams in Week 5.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy did not play a snap in Week 3.

He was active for the game, but he did not play. Lacy does not need to be on fantasy rosters right now, and it wouldn't be that surprising to see the Seahawks move on from Lacy like they have with running backs (Christine Michael) in the past.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy is active for Week 3.

After being a healthy scratch last week, Lacy is back on the active roster against the Titans. For Lacy to provide fantasy value today, he'll likely need goal line touches and to convert them. Rookie Chris Carson or Thomas Rawls is still expected to lead the team in carries today.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy is inactive for the Seahawks today.

With Thomas Rawls now healthy and active for the game, Lacy is the odd man out in Seattle's backfield. He couldn't really get much going in Week 1 against the Packers, and he's now the fourth guy in the backfield for the Seahawks. Seattle will go with Thomas Rawls, C.J. Prosise, and rookie Chris Carson in the backfield today versus the 49ers.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy struggles in Week 1 against the Packers.

Lacy could not get anything going against his former team, carrying five times for three yards. Green Bay didn't give him much room to run, but the big Lacy did not look great—granted, it was only a few touches for him. Rookie Chris Carson (six carries, 39 yards) outplayed Lacy, and Thomas Rawls (ankle) was inactive but should be back soon, so Lacy's role might not be a big one this season. Maybe Seattle will feed him the ball this Sunday against the Niners to see what he can do with a bigger workload, though.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy rushed four times for 21 yards in Seattle's third preseason game.

Lacy got the start with Thomas Rawls (ankle) out, but he split first-team work with rookie Chris Carson, even coming out of the game after his first carry on the first play. C.J. Prosise was also out for the Seahawks, and both he and Rawls will get significant work in the regular season. This looks like it could be a full-blown, four-man RBBC, making Lacy someone you should avoid in the middle rounds, even as his ADP keeps falling.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy starts in exhibition game against the Vikings.

With Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise out, Lacy started the game and split work the first-team work with rookie Chris Carson. Lacy had six carries for 20 yards and one reception for three yards. The veteran back looked OK, but considering rookie Chris Carson outplayed him, Lacy probably didn't do anything to take the lead role from Rawls. Ideally, we'll see all of Seattle's running backs in the third preseason game and maybe see who gets opportunities at the goal line—something Lacy might be the number one option there in a potentially top offense.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy plays as clear backup for Seattle in preseason game.

Lacy had four carries for ten yards while working with the second team after Thomas Rawls handled the entire series with the first team. Perhaps Lacy is still getting worked into things after he had ankle surgery last year, but Rawls has been getting the first-team work in practice—it's more likely the Seahawks are just deciding to go with Rawls as their main guy. Lacy could be the goal line back, however, even if he isn't the number one running back. This situation is one to watch as the starters play more in the second and third preseason games.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Pete Carroll is "fired up" about Eddie Lacy.

The big Seahawks back hit his weight milestone today, as he's hit every one so far and is taking his weight seriously. Lacy is reportedly moving well throughout training camp so far. Carroll said Lacy "is rumbling and doing just what we want, and he is going to run huge, just the way we like it." A lot can change, but as of now it looks like Seattle is going to look to use Lacy as their hammer this season, probably with Thomas Rawls as some major juice off the bench, along with C.J. Prosise on third downs.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

ESPN's Sheil Kapadia thinks the Seahawks running back battle is one of the biggest to watch in training camp.

The Seahawks brought in former Packers running back Eddie Lacy to help boost the running game, but Kapadia thinks Rawls "has a chance to make some noise with a strong summer." The expectation is that Lacy will be the starter, but Rawls is a very determined and hard working player that has shown he can play at high level in the NFL. As of now, Lacy is the safer fantasy option, but ideally you won't be drafting your team until very late in the preseason, so we should have a better idea of how the carries will be divided by then. Second year back C.J. Prosise is locked in as the team's third down back, but he could also push for an early down role too.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy passed his weigh-in today, according to reports.

Lacy needed to weigh-in at 250 lbs. or below, and he is $55,000 richer for doing so. Not bad. The new Seahawks running back will play a lot faster (and better) if he keeps his weight down in the regular season, and the Seattle coaching staff seems to want him to be the leader of the backfield over a now-healthy and impressive Thomas Rawls. If things go as projected through training camp and the preseason, Lacy will be the best fantasy back on the Seahawks, but Rawls could end up being the best value.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable says the team "nailed" its offseason offensive line additions.

Seattle added former number two overall pick Luke Joeckel in free agency, along with Oday Aboushi and second-rounder Ethan Pocic. Left tackle George Fant is a very athletic tackle that added weight for his second season and is working with Hall of Fame left tackle Walter Jones to improve his game. Germain Ifedi—Seattle's 2016 first round pick—is now at right tackle. Overall, the team seems to be deeper at offensive line with their offseason additions. The Seahawks want to run the ball more this season, and a strong offensive line would certainly help that cause. It'll also help Russell Wilson if he's not running for his life back there.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Shiel Kapadia predicts around 15 carries per game for Eddie Lacy.

Kapadia has believed the Seahawks brought in Lacy to be a workhorse-type running back for them. If Lacy does indeed get 15 carries per game, he'd be a solid RB2. But, he does have a lot of competition in the backfield with C.J. Prosise and Thomas Rawls, who it might be hard to keep off the field.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Pete Carroll says the Seahawks run game will come "roaring right back" this season.

Carroll was on 710 ESPN Seattle and said this, via Sheil Kapadia. Carroll talked about the struggles they had last season with Russell Wilson being banged up and other guys being hurt, and he expects them to be healthier and run the ball more this season. As Carroll said, the Seahawks rushed about 100 less times last season than the year before. Look for more running and less passing from the Seahawks this season. Right now, Lacy looks like he'll have the most value this season, but don't discount Thomas Rawls and/or C.J. Prosise stepping up. Prosise will certainly have a passing down role.

Eddie Lacy meets weight incentive in contract, weighs in at 253 pounds, according to Adam Schefter.

Lacy earns a cool $55,000 by weighing in two pounds under the 255-pound limit. This is really good news for his fantasy outlook if he can keep it up heading into training camp and through the season, as Lacy will be more effective playing at a lower weight. Expected to be the lead back in a three-way committee for the Seahawks, Lacy will probably be the best weekly fantasy play to start out 2017, with C.J. Prosise handling passing-game work and Thomas Rawls operating as a change-up.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Shiel Kapadia expects Eddie Lacy to be the Seahawks' number one running back next season.

Of course, Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise are in the mix, and Lacy needs to keep his weight under control. Kapadia expects Rawls to get a good amount of touches to keep the big back Lacy fresh for the fourth quarter. It doesn't look like an ideal fantasy situation at the moment.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Pete Carroll says Eddie Lacy is a "big back in the classic fashion."

It sounds like Lacy will be Seattle's preferred goal line and short yardage back. As of now, the best guess is that Rawls will work as the starter, with Lacy in short yardage situations, and Prosise as the passing down back. There are reports that Lacy is up to 267 pounds, but he's expected to get down into the 240 pound range for the season.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy is signing with the Seahawks, according to his agency.

This is a bit of a surprise, as the Packers remained interested, but Lacy has elected to join Seattle. This probably isn't great for Lacy's fantasy value next season, as the Seahawks have Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise already in the backfield. We'll have to see how the situation turns out during training camp, but as of now it's hard to determine who will have fantasy value in the backfield—if any of them. This also takes a team off the board for fellow running backs Adrian Peterson, Jamaal Charles, and Latavius Murray—all had visited Seattle in free agency.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Eddie Lacy is visiting the Seahawks, Vikings, and Packers, according to his agency.

The Vikings and Packers seem like the best fits of the two, because the Seahawks have both Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise. Minnesota would be a pretty good fit if Peterson is gone, but the Packers seem like the most likely scenario. Lacy will probably make a decision sometime next week.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy says the team would "love" to have Eddie Lacy back next season.

This lines up with what Lacy said yesterday on Adam Schefter's podcast, "Know Them From Adam." A short-term deal between Lacy and the Packers seems likely.

Eddie Lacy | Free Agent RB

Appearing on Adam Schefter's podcast, "Know Them From Adam," Eddie Lacy says the Packers want him back next season.

Lacy told Adam that his agent says the Packers have been "very vocal" about wanting him on the Packers. We'll see what happens when free agency hits, but it might be best for both sides for Lacy to stay with Green Bay. This also might indicate the Packers don't really see Ty Montgomery as a near-workhorse running back.

Eddie Lacy (ankle) is done for the season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

McCarthy said Lacy will not be activated from IR. A free agent after the season, Lacy finishes his contract year with 71 attempts for 360 yards (5.1 yards per carry), adding four catches for 28 yards. He did not score in five games. It'll be interesting to see where Lacy ends up this offseason with the Packers not having a stable running game, but Lacy battling to keep his weight down his entire career. He should wind up as the starter somewhere; where that is will determine his fantasy prospects for 2017 and beyond. You can drop Lacy if you've been holding onto him.
