Lacy had surgery on his ankle in the middle of the 2016 season. He was not at full strength as of May 2017, but did most of phase two of the team's offseason program.

Summary

The former Packers starter signed an incentive-laden deal with the Seahawks this spring. The most significant incentives are focused around Lacy maintaining an optimum physical conditioning. Lacy, whose 2016 season was cut short by a Week 6 ankle injury, has 1 touchdown in his past 13 games. Despite weight issues and injuries, Lacy still performs well when he's on the field. During his last 13 games, Lacy topped the century mark in rushing yardage 4 times despite struggles along the offensive line and a pass-heavy scheme. Lacy and Thomas Rawls are essentially in the same fantasy category: backs with a wide range of fantasy variability but have RB1 upside if the they earn the lead role, the offensive line's development trends upward, and their competition can't stay healthy. It means Lacy is best regarded as a fantasy reserve with a wide range of production possibilities--good and bad. Because fantasy owners will likely plant their flag with one of Rawls or Lacy as the lead back, the average draft position on one, if not both, options will have upside baked into the figure.

Seahawks | Seattle expects to run more often in 2017 (Fri May 19, 03:50 PM) - Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said this week the Seahawks will run the ball more often this season. The team added Eddie Lacy to a backfield that already had a pair of injury-prone players in C.J. Prosise and Thomas Rawls.

Our View: That's good news for Lacy and company. Lacy comes over from Green Bay in free agency this offseason, and he needed a fresh start. After two years of strong production with the Packers, the last two years have seen the big back struggle through weight problems and injuries. If healthy, over 1,000 yards rushing and 7-9 rushing touchdowns is possible with his new team. Fantasy owners are drafting Lacy at RB20 (5.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy has more incentives (Thu May 18, 05:58 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy can earn $1.3 million if he rushes for at least 1,200 yards this season. Rushing for a minimum of 800 yards will cash him in for $250,000, 900 yards will be $500,000, 1,000 yards will be $750,000 and $1,100 yards would earn him $1 million.

Our View: Lacy has plenty of reasons not to be overweight this year, and we'll see if he can stay on track in 2017. He has already gained $55,000 for not exceeding 255 pounds.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy passes weight test (Mon May 15, 03:14 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy earned $55,000 Monday, May 15, for weighing 253 pounds -- two below the limit Seattle set for him.

Our View: Just under the wire! Lacy has a weight clause in his contract with the Seahawks...and for good reason. They don't need him filling up on Italian food at The Pink Door and getting out of shape. The team wants Lacy to play around 245 pounds this year. If he can keep his weight under control, it could help with his stamina and availability - something that's been a problem for him over the last two years.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy weigh-in beckons (Mon May 15, 09:33 AM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy is due for a weigh-in Monday, May 15. If he weighs 255 pounds or less, he'll earn $35,000.

Our View: Lacy's weight has been a problem during his pro career. The Seahawks want him to play around 245 pounds and have incentivized his contract with weight clauses.
