Packers RB Eddie Lacy on dropping weight: 'I'm cool'
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/3/15) Packers running back Eddie Lacy is an intimidating figure. The team lists him generously at 230 pounds, which makes people wonder how long can a running back that big keep up in the NFL. Lacy's not worried about that, nor does he mind his weight, per the Journal Sentinel.
"I'm cool," Lacy said after asked about the possibility of dropping some weight.
Lacy, unlike some of his teammates, took the offseason to simply rest the wear and tear off his body from last year's punishment.
"It took my body a long time," Lacy said. "For all the hits and stuff to go away. Resting definitely helps and after that I got after it a little bit."
Lacy rushed for 1,139 yards and nine touchdowns last season.
Packers RB Eddie Lacy won't hit the brakes in open field this year
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/2/15) The statistics say one thing. Packers featured back Eddie Lacy says another.
Lacy finished sixth in the NFL last year with 49 missed tackles, according to Pro Football Focus, which further reveals that his 690 yards after contact was topped only by four others. But he knows what he wants to improve on in 2015.
"Finishing runs," he declared to the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "A lot of times I'll get into the secondary and I'll stop my feet or, as my coach likes to say, 'Hit the brakes.' ... This year, I don't want to do do that. ... I want to get to the secondary and if there's a guy there, whoever it may be, instead of me hitting the air brakes, I want to push the gas and make it harder on him and maybe he'll miss a tackle and I'll break a long one."
Lacy was among the most productive all-around backs in the league a year ago. He finished with 1,139 yards rushing on a 4.6 YPC average and added 427 yards receiving. He scored 13 touchdowns.
Packers want to keep RB Eddie Lacy fresh this season
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/28/15) Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is working on ways to keep running back Eddie Lacy fresh this season, reports the Journal Sentinel.
McCarthy had talks with Lacy at the end of the last two seasons talking about his number of snaps and what he expected of the running back.
"I really felt that last year's conversation was more important than this year's, the ability to make a huge jump from Year One to Two, being a three-down player, that was something we stressed from Day One, and I thought he delivered," McCarthy said at the NFL owners meetings this week.
The head coach liked the way that the team used Lacy last season, limiting his snaps early in the year before increasing them as the season wore on.
"Maybe not run attempts," McCarthy said of hitting the target he set. "But I thought we were really smart the way we used him....I thought his pass protection he made a huge jump, and his ability to play out of the backfield.
"Eddie has excellent hands, and just his understand and his feel with Aaron, he definitely made a step."
In his first two seasons in the NFL, the 24-year-old has 2,317 yards rushing and 20 touchdowns. He has also added 77 receptions for 684 yards and four touchdown catches.
Packers' Eddie Lacy runs for 73 yards in losing effort
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/18/15) Packers running back Eddie Lacy ran the ball 21 times for 73 yards in Green Bay's 28-22 loss the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game Sunday.
Lacy, who came into the game dealing with a small knee injury, wasn't able to find a ton of running room, with a long run of 13 yards.
He finishes his second year in the league with 1,313 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns on 286 carries.
Packers Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy good to go for Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/18/15) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and running back Eddie Lacy are both active for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Seahawks.
Rodgers, who is dealing with a torn calf muscle, played through the injury last week and was considered probable for the contest.
Lacy was dealing with a knee injury, but was also considered probable for the game.
The Packers are currently 8-point underdogs against the Seahawks Sunday.
|All Eddie Lacy has done since entering the NFL is collect more than 1,400 total yards and 11 or more touchdowns per season. Better yet, Lacy had 31 fewer touches in his second year and still improved statistically. And best of all, save for a concussion in his rookie year, Lacy has avoided the injury bug that plagued him in college. Playing with Aaron Rodgers has its privileges, and with 10-plus Fantasy points in 23 of 31 career games (74 percent success rate), there's no sign of Lacy losing value. An argument could be made to take him first overall in Fantasy drafts, which seems likely to happen if Steelers stud Le'Veon Bell has to miss some time this season. Otherwise bank on Lacy getting picked within the first three picks in standard leagues and the first four picks in PPR leagues. Handcuffing him with his backup (likely James Starks) shouldn't require anything more than a 10th or 11th round pick.
