Eddie Lacy makes first weight cut

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Seattle Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy weighed in at 253 pounds Monday, two below the 255-pound limit the team set for him at this point in the offseason.

Fantasy Impact

As a result of Lacy making weight, he earned a $55,000 bonus. The 26-year-old big bodied rusher has struggled with weight since entering the league in 2013 as a member of the Packers and is likely one of the reasons why Green Bay didn't push harder to re-sign him despite their running back woes. Currently, Lacy is slated as Seattle's RB1 for 2017 with Thomas Rawls as his handcuff. However, if Lacy's weight continues to fluctuate or if he struggles to run the ball early in the season, it wouldn't be a shock to see Rawls atop the depth chart sooner rather than later. C.J. Prosise will also be in the mix for touches this year, making the Seahawks' backfield appear volatile for fantasy football purposes.

Eddie Lacy signs one-year deal with the Seahawks

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network has reported that the Seahawks and Eddie Lacy have agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth $5.55 million, with $3 million in guaranteed money.

Fantasy Impact

This is the "prove-it" type of deal that we expected for Lacy, however there wasn't anyone who connected the dots to the Seahawks. There have been times where Lacy looks like a franchise running back, but other times when his weight issues seemed to hamper his performance. The Seahawks are one of the most run-heavy teams in football and have been looking for a Marshawn Lynch replacement. It'll be interesting to see where Lacy is physically before assuming anything.

Eddie Lacy to make three visits

Packers RB Eddie Lacy is set to visit with the Seahawks and Vikings along with revisiting with the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Eddie Lacy was slowed last season with an ankle injury that limited him to five games accumulating 71 carries for 360 yards. After being two years removed from his last 1,000 yard season many people are skeptical if we will ever get the "RB1" Lacy back. Depending on what system Lacy ends up in will show his value. Going into drafts many will be hesitant to draft Lacy but think of him as this seasons DeMarco Murray. He still has stuff left in the tank- just needs the right opportunity.

Eddie Lacy ankle surgery more extensive than originally believed

Free agent running back Eddie Lacy revealed that the ankle surgery he had back in November was more extensive than was let on.

Fantasy Impact

“I messed up my deltoid and widened the bone on my ankle, so I had to get two screws, two wires and a plate to fix it because I messed up my deltoid ligament,” Lacy said. “That’s the longest thing to heal.” Despite this news, Lacy says he only has about two more months to go in his rehab and should be ready for the start of OTAs and full-go for training camp. This biggest question for Lacy this offseason remains whether he will stay in Green Bay or not.

Eddie Lacy may need to settle for one-year deal

Green Bay Packers beat writer Pete Dougherty believes that running back Eddie Lacy may have to settle for a one-year "prove it" deal worth around $2M this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

Lacy is coming off two down seasons in a row where health and fitness have been concerns, so this makes sense. For that price, the Packers would be wise to bring Lacy back to pair with Ty Montgomery, but Lacy may want to see what other options are out there. He should have a viable fantasy role no matter where he ends up.
