Change in offense taking toll on Packers RB Eddie Lacy


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Eddie Lacy is struggling to overcome several obstacles in his second season as featured back for the Packers. The result has been a distinct drop in production.

Lacy rushed for 1,178 yards a year ago and won Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. But he has yet to exceed 50 yards in any game in 2014. His longest run has been 17 yards and he's averaging a mere 3.0 YPC. He is on pace to rush for just 644 yards this season.

Among the changes to which Lacy has been forced to adapt is the no-huddle offense and the shotgun formation. The Packers ran the no-huddle a year ago, but Lacy did not start until quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down - and the no-huddle went down with him. That's when Lacy began to thrive.

"Last year, we were able to run the ball a lot because A-Rod went down, so we just ran the ball a lot," Lacy explained to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Wednesday. "Having him back definitely it's not going to be that type of season. We just have to get in the backfield, run the ball when we're called upon and pass protect and let them throw the ball."

That means, however, Lacy must work on running out of the shotgun. It is believed he is best-suited running downhill with a head of steam. The shotgun forces him to gather in the ball before surging forward.


Eddie Lacy still worth your trust in Week 5


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Disappointed in Packers running back Eddie Lacy? Good, you should be. Even in his best Fantasy outing of the season, Lacy rushed for just 48 yards on 17 carries in Week 4, in a performance that was salvaged only by a touchdown.

Lacy has given little reason for Fantasy owners to feel good about his performance this season, as he carries a pitiful 3.0 yards per carry average into Week 5 against the Vikings. However, he may start to turn things around this week, against a beat up Vikings defense that just surrendered 6.0 yards per carry to Falcons running backs.

The Vikings have surrendered 70 Fantasy points to opposing running backs over the last three weeks, and now have to face a short turnaround as they try to slow Lacy down. Even with how disappointing he has been, this could be a good chance for Lacy to build on his first score a week ago, against a team that could be trailing early.

Lacy ranks just 23rd among running backs in Fantasy scoring this season, but both Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg have him ranked right inside the top-10 for Week 5. Despite his struggles, keep Lacy active. 


Eddie Lacy sort of shows up


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) Running back Eddie Lacy capped the Packers' first drive with a touchdown Week 4 at Chicago, validating all the Fantasy owners who stuck with him for the favorable matchup. The problem is he didn't do much after that.

His 48 yards on 17 carries gave him a pathetic 2.8 yards per carry -- this against a defense that had allowed 5.0 yards per carry in its first three games. Through four games, Lacy has yet to reach even the half-century mark, much less the century mark.

And the worst part is the Packers weren't struggling to keep up in this one. They had a big lead for much of the second half, when Lacy got 11 of his season-high 17 carries. He just couldn't capitalize on it.

My colleague, Chris Towers, wrote earlier in the week that Lacy's schedule was partly to blame for his struggles through the first three weeks, and that may be true. But my confidence in him will plummet if he doesn't bounce back in a meaningful way Week 5 against Minnesota.


Eddie Lacy finally scores, but poor season continues Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Packers featured back Eddie Lacy could not match the production of his skill position teammates, but he did contribute his first touchdown of the year to the blowout defeat of Chicago on Sunday.

Lacy opened the scoring for his team with a 2-yard touchdown run that tied the game with four minutes remaining in the first quarter. But he finished with just 48 yards on 17 carries and the one score, as well as one catch for 11 yards.

His disappointing season continues. The Week 4 rushing total was, shockingly, his best of the year. Lacy has just 161 yards on 53 carries in 2014. He will attempt to hit his stride literally and figuratively Thursday night against Minnesota.


Eddie Lacy not concerned about being called out


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy isn't concerned about his coach calling him out, according to ESPN.

"As a player, I think when a coach calls you out, that means he sees something in you that you can do or you need to work on and get better as a player," Lacy said. Following Sunday's game, head coach Mike McCarthy said that Lacy needed to play better. Lacy admitted he's been surprised by his struggles thus far, but indicated that he's been working on a way to fix things. "There were a few times last week where I was running kind of high, and I just figured that out," Lacy added. "This week, definitely get my pads down when I'm running." 


Eddie Lacy's road about to get much smoother


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy was the fifth running back taken in CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues on average this season, so his owners are understandably frustrated to see him rank behind guys like Joe McKnight, Carlos Hyde and Lorenzo Taliaferro through the first three weeks.

Lacy has racked up just 12 Fantasy points through three games, a total he matched or exceeded in six different games a year ago. With how much he has underperformed so far, should Fantasy owners look to dump last year's breakout star before the bottom falls out? In a word, no.

The Packers opened the season with a hellacious schedule, facing three teams that ranked in the top seven in FootballOutsider's DVOA against the rush last season. Seattle, Detroit and the Jets have allowed a combined 2.8 yards per carry through three games, and that isn't all because of the Packers.

Green Bay's next three opponents' combined yards per carry allowed comes out to 4.2. So, Lacy should have an easier road moving forward. That should begin in Week 4 against a Bears defense that has allowed 5.3 yards per carry in 19 games since the start of the 2013 season.

Lacy ranks in the top 15 in the league in yards per carry after contact at 2.5, per ProFootballFocus.com, so he is still showing the elusiveness that made him so good a year ago. With the schedule about to get a lot easier, Lacy remains a must-start option, despite his struggles. 


Mike McCarthy not pleased with Eddie Lacy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Packers coach Mike McCarthy made it clear Monday that he's not pleased with running back Eddie Lacy, who's averaging 3.1 yards per carry. "Eddie needs to play better," McCarthy said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"I'm not going to do this anymore. I don't correct individuals in the media. We've seen the film, corrections have been made, our running game wasn't nearly what it needed to be. Not even close."

Five of Lacy's 11 carries Sunday against the Lions went for zero or negative yardage, including one in which he was tackled for a safety.


Eddie Lacy working on improving run game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) After facing three of the league's best run defenses through three weeks, it probably comes as no surprise the Packers rank 27th in rushing offense, averaging 78.7 rushing yards per game.

Perhaps even more alarming is that star running back Eddie Lacy is averaging 37.7 rushing yards per game and 3.1 yards per carry after averaging 78.5 and 4.1, respectively, in 2013.

"We have to change our mind-set," Lacy said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "We had a few opportunities as backs that we didn't take advantage of, whether we made the wrong read or tried to press too much. It's a long season and we're going to get it to where we need it to be.

"We just have to figure out better ways to run the ball. I don't know if I have to be more patient or speed things up but one way or another I'm responsible for the run game."


Eddie Lacy held in check Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy was held in check Week 3 against the Lions.

Lacy had just 11 attempts, picking up 36 yards during the game. He also had one catch for 9 yards. Lacy got himself in trouble early, losing a fumble. That allowed James Starks to enter the game earlier than usual, and steal some carries. The Lions controlled the line of scrimmage during the game, and limited Lacy's effectiveness.

Lacy will look for more Week 4 against the Bears. 


Eddie Lacy struggles in running game vs. Jets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy was done in by a tough matchup Sunday, gaining just 43 yards on 13 carries while catching two of his three targets for 18 yards in his team's 31-24 win over the Jets.

The Packers found it much easier moving the ball in the passing game, and Lacy finished the first half with just five yards on three carries. He's managed to average just over three yards per carry in his first two games, though he did face rough matchups in each of those games. He could find things easier next week when the Packers travel to Detroit.


Eddie Lacy active vs. Jets in Week 2


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Eddie Lacy passes first step in concussion protocol


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy passed the first part of the league's concussion protocol Friday, just one day after he was forced out of the season opener against the Seahawks.

"I was told Eddie feels very good today," coach Mike McCarthy said during a press conference Friday, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He has already started the concussion protocol and has cleared the first step."

The Packers have extra time off until their Week 2 game against the Jets, thanks to Thursday's kickoff. Whether Lacy will be able to practice next week and play Sunday remains to be seen, however. 


Eddie Lacy struggles, leaves with concussion


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy had a tough game before leaving with a concussion.

Lacy gained just 34 yards on 12 carries, averaging 2.8 yards per rush. He also caught three passes for 11 yards.

After the game, it was determined Lacy is dealing with a concussion. The Packers don’t play for 10 days, and Lacy will be evaluated throughout the week. 

If he can play, Lacy will take on the Jets Week 2. 


Eddie Lacy dealing with a concussion


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Seahawks.

Eddie Lacy to have his hands full Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Packers running back Eddie Lacy will have his hands full Week 1 against the Seahawks.

Lacy is coming off a tremendous rookie season, in which he rushed for nearly 1,200 yards and scored 11 touchdowns. He didn’t get a ton of use during the preseason, but seemed to be in midseason form. Lacy rushed for 61 yards on 11 carries, good for a 5.5 average over two preseason games. He also managed to run in a touchdown.

Though he looked strong in the preseason, Lacy should have a tough time against the Seahawks Week 1. Seattle allowed just 12.32 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs last season. That was the second-lowest rate in the league. While the Seahawks lost three defensive linemen during the offseason, the club is thought to still have the top-rated Fantasy defense.

In many circles, Lacy was considered a strong Fantasy pick after the elite four running backs were off the board. With that in mind, it’s unlikely he’ll be benched in many leagues Week 1. There are better matchups out there, but Lacy is a tough player to sit. Given Green Bay’s offensive capabilities, he’s still a decent start even against the best Fantasy defenses.

Coach: Eddie Lacy could lead NFL in yards from scrimmage


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Packers running backs coach Sam Gash said second-year back Eddie Lacy has a chance to lead the NFL in yards from scrimmage.

"He has the capability of being the leading rusher and maybe even combined yards if he catches a lot of balls," Gash told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "I absolutely do think that.

"I think he's a bell cow. He's a big guy, and he's physical."

Lacy ranked 14th last year with 1,435 yards from scrimmage. He was removed in some passing and two-minute situations last season, but has been groomed to play in all situations this year, the paper said.
