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.

Eddie Lacy's tenure in Green Bay may not be over

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told the media he'd "love to see" running back Eddie Lacy remain with the team next season.

Fantasy Impact

Although Lacy's time in Green Bay appears to be ending, his head coach left the door open for a return. McCarthy said he'd "love to see" Lacy remain with the team in 2017. However, it would likely be at a hometown discount. If Lacy is inclined to test his value on the open market, he'd likely garner a greater valued contract than he would from the Packers. Lacy has struggled with his weight and his health since the start of the 2015 season.
