2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Dec-12-2015 by Shawn Childs
Week 14 DFS Update (12/12): Lacy partied his way out of playing time in Week 13, which led to one yard on six touches while being on the field for 19 plays. His failure was a huge disappointment to the Fantasy market after showing upside in his two previous games (245 combined yards, a TD and five catches). The Packers' coaching staff seems to have put his mistake behind him and he looks motivated to regain the starting job. Last season Lacy had 110 combined yards on 20 touches vs. the Cowboys in the playoffs. Dallas is 24th in the league in RB Fantasy defense, with four teams scoring over 30 Fantasy points. The Cowboys have defended the run well in their last four games (3.4 YPC and no TDs to RBs). On the year, Dallas allows 4.0 YPC with 11 TDs to the RB position. Favorable salary if he ever regains the full compliment of snaps. I would avoid Lacy this week due to questions with his playing time.
UPDATE (11/18): Lacy may very well be the biggest disappointment of the Fantasy season. He physically looks slow and overweight. After being drafted as an elite RB1, he's not even the starter on the Packers anymore. He lost his starting job to James Starks. Lacy has only 308 yards on the ground and two TDs for the entire season. He hasn't contributed much in the passing game either with only 10 catches for 92 yards. Plus, he's fumbled three times this season. Yes, he has more fumbles than touchdowns. He's the bust of the year to this point.
Lacy has topped 1,100 rushing yards and 1,400 total yards in each of his first two seasons. His yards-per-carry average gained a half of a yard from his rookie year (4.1 to 4.6), and Eddie gained 2.9 yards more per catch. Lacy finished 2014 with 1,566 yards from scrimmage and 13 TDs despite losing 21 touches from 2013. Game score at home was a big factor. On the year, Eddie had three 100-yard rushing games in 16 starts but touched the ball at least 20 times on just four occasions. Still, Lacy is a workhorse back who has scored 24 touchdowns in 31 career outings and plays in one of the highest-scoring offenses in the league. This season, he is getting a ton of respect in the Fantasy market; Eddie is currently the fourth player and the third running back being selected in drafts on average. In his two years, Lacy has finished sixth and seventh in Fantasy scoring in PPR leagues. His offensive line has talent, and defenses can't key in on him with Rodgers throwing the ball. Although his workload is diminished in some weeks because of Rodgers' greatness, I have to believe Lacy will get 20 touches per game. This will lead to a 320-touch opportunity. I don't see him gaining more than 1,700 yards as the Packers will pull him in games in which they are blowing out their opponent. With 40 catches and a dozen TDs, Lacy will fall just short of a 300-point Fantasy season in PPR leagues. He will offer steady TD production and definitely post some big games.

|1.07||Team Hallam - Tough choice between an elite WR or bottom of the top RB tier. Lacy is in a great offense with plenty of scoring opportunities and catching ability, worth it early (Comments Added Mon Aug 3 9:39:00 p.m. ET 2015)|
