Many of our most accurate experts regard Lacy very highly this season and for good reason. The weight is off and his top-five pick ability is still present. If Rodgers and friends stay healthy, fantasy owners may see the best version of Lacy yet.

In limited action on Friday night, Packers' starting running back Eddie Lacy carried the ball seven times for 45 yards.

Fantasy Impact: The newly-slim Eddie Lacy has put together a promising preseason so far for Green Bay, averaging 6.0, 5.0, and 6.4 yards per carry over his first three preseason contests. While it's unlikely he'll maintain the same sort of production against starting-caliber defenses in the regular season, things are looking good for the former Alabama running back and even better for his fantasy owners. If he's able to maintain his fitness, Lacy could turn out to be an absolute steal at his current ADP of 22nd overall in standard leagues.

Lacy has already dropped 15-17 pounds in the offseason and looks to be dedicated to getting back on track. We know what he can do when motivated and healthy, so the 2016 season looks prime for a bounce-back. Add in Jordy Nelson to help loosen the defense, and Lacy could be a steal anywhere outside the Top-5 backs taken

Last season Eddie Lacy entered the year as a projected top fantasy scorer. After an extremely disappointing season in 2015 many fantasy owners are conflictedwith where to draft him. In my opinion Lacy will rebound and look more like he did in his first two seasons. The Packers offense as a whole sho...

The Sultan of Stats is higher on Eddie Lacy Eddie Lacy in 2016 than the other experts. In 2015, Lacy was out of shape and weighed rougly 255-260 poinds, which is way too large for a starting RB in the National Football League. He got about 2 feet of air on his Lanbeau Leap. Green Bay Packers head coach, Mike McCarthy grew very concerned about Lacy's weight. In the offseason, Lacy has gone through a weight transformation and will report to training camp in excellent shape. We should see a return to Lacy's explosiveness unless he is injured. There is no reason why Lacy can't return to 240+ rushing attempts, 1150+ rushing yards, and 10+ TDs this season. With the return of Jordy Nelson from his torn ACL to the Green Bay Offense this year, Lacy will see defenses keying more on the pass. Eddie Lacy could turn out to be one of the draft day bargains in rounds 2-4 of your fantasy football league drafts. Don't forget that this is Lacy's last year in his rookie contract, so he is playing for extra incentive this season for a new contract. He suffered an ankle injury in practice, but it does not seem serious.

Sure, it's easy to just say "he's skinnier and motivated so he'll be good"... but, he's skinnier and motivated, so he'll be good. Plus, a bounce back from the GB offense overall is expected with Nelson returning and Lacy finished his first two seasons as RB6.

No player's physical condition will be more scrutinized this summer after he plodded his out-of-shape body through a lackluster first half of '15 - he did finish final 9 games (including two postseason contests with a 4.7 ypc mark) - was top 7 fantasy RB in both '13 and '14

You always want to buy low in fantasy football, and one of the best ways to buy low with a high ceiling in a range of outcomes is to target star players coming off of disappointing seasons. Fantasy football owners tend to rank players coming off below-average or subpar seasons lower on their cheat sheets than they

The problem with last year is he reported to camp 30 lb. overweight and battled injuries and poor conditioning all season. As a result, he had a lost season with 758 yards and 3 touchdowns. All reports are that he is on pace to be in the 230s this season and in a contract year, he should be back to a Top-10 fantasy back.
