Eddie Lacy continues offseason workouts

The Seahawks offseason program may be over, but Eddie Lacy is still hard at work. Lacy has been showing off his workout program all offseason and says he "feels great" and he "hasn't missed a day."

Fantasy Impact

It's great to hear. Lacy, who passed his latest contractual weigh-in earlier this June has his next weigh-in in August and needs to be at 245 pounds. Lacy is well on his way to a bounce-back season, and is a mid-to-high RB2.

Eddie Lacy still bothered by ankle injury

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told the media running back Eddie Lacy (ankle) should be a "full go" for training camp.

Fantasy Impact

Lacy, who remains limited with a lingering ankle injury, is expected to make a full return to football activities at the start of training camp in late July. The inconsistent rusher is slated to open the 2017 season as the Seahawks' top RB but will have a difficult tie holding on to his job if he struggles with Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise breathing down his neck. From a fantasy football perspective, Lacy should be targeted in mid-to-high end RB2 tier for upcoming fantasy drafts.

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.
