2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


Conditioning and weight issues led to Lacy being a bust in 2015. He finished with 207 touches for 946 yards with five TDs and 20 catches. His final numbers were at least 50 percent lower than his expected value. His best success came over a four-game stretch from Week 10 to Week 13 when Eddie had three games with 100 or more yards rushing (22/100, 17/105, and 24/124/1). Unfortunately, he stuck it to Fantasy owners in Week 12 (one combined yard on six touches). The Packers wanted him to lose 30 lbs. in the offseason. As of May, Lacy dropped about 20 lbs., which puts him on a path to make 'weight' for training camp. His failure in 2015 created more playing time for James Starks so it will be tough to trust Eddie will get the full ride this year. Lacy has two years on his resume with over 1400 combined yards and double-digit TDs plus he isn't dead in the water in catches (97 in 46 career games). His opportunity looks to be a back-end RB1 with potential to score in all three areas of the game (yards, TDs, and catches). A Fantasy owner needs to keep an open mind with his upside as Eddie will have a broad range of value on draft day. His floor should be 1300 combined yards with a chance at 10 or more TDs.

2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
3.06 Corey Parson - Yep Im back on the Lacy train, third round is a nice value for a back who was going in the first round of drafts last season. I'm looking for a motivated lacy to have a bounce back season.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
3.05 USA Today - Tim Heaney - No. 1 pick candidate last year ate his way onto our Hate list. But trimmer physique points to rebound in a big way.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
4.11 Draft Sharks - Jared Smola - I've drafted Lacy a few times in the early 3rd round, so no way was I passing him up in the late 4th. An in-shape Lacy was a top 8 fantasy RB in both of his first two seasons.
