Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 12 vs SF (17 / 46 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec)
Lacy started out with positive gains, even going over 10 yards on one rush. His day was looking promising, but then, just as the running game seems to have found it's legs, Russell Wilson suddenly couldn't throw the ball to save his life. Lacy continued to run hard, but it was painfully obvious that he was simply less effective with each carry.
2017 Week 11 vs ATL (3 / 2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Lacy genuinely looked impressive on his first goal line carry, with a good burst at the line. But, he still didn't make it in. He had a couple more carries after that, each one less impressive than the last. To add insult to injury, later in the game, they took him out of the short yardage package entirely.
2017 Week 9 vs WAS (6 / 20 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Lacy did nothing to write home about, but he did look a lot better than he has previously this season. The coaching staff gave him a longer leash, and he seemed to be responding to that. He was running with a bit more burst and even looked more agile than usual on a first down catch in traffic -- which you might chalk up to a slightly improved offensive line giving him more to run, but either way, he was somewhat effective. Until, that is, he left the game with an injury in the second quarter.
2017 Week 8 vs HOU (6 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Lacy appeared as sluggish as ever, and while on the surface, the numbers appears equal to Rawls, based on his actual play, it's hard to see Lacy contributing anything meaningful the rest of the way.
2017 Week 7 vs NYG (11 / 34 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Lacy did not look terrible. And yes, that's about the best one can say about him until he shows more consistency. Lacy genuinely looked better than he has all season when bursting through the line. He's a big back who is finally using that to his advantage. He was also used in the red zone, but Thomas Rawls picked up the goal line carries.
2017 Week 5 vs LAR (9 / 19 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Lacy failed to impress, yet again. He shared the backfield primarily with Thomas Rawls, whose equally poor play actually made Lacy look good on occasion. The small, shining, diamond in the rough here is that Lacy seemed to gain steam as the game went on. This could be a trend or it could be coincidence, as last week he did quite well with the lead, in what was arguably garbage time. Tough to see the Seahawks handing him the keys for the full game just to find out, though.
2017 Week 4 vs IND (11 / 52 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Lacy started sluggish but ended with a bang. And with Chris Carson's injury, a window of opportunity may have opened for him, slim as it may be. It's hard to fault the production here, but keep in mind that much of it was in garbage time, with the Seahawks up by about 20 points.
2017 Week 1 vs GB (5 / 3 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
With Thomas Rawls declared out, Lacy had a prime chance to prove his naysayers wrong, but he did nothing of the sort. He looked sluggish hitting the line and was not targeted as a receiver. It can't be said enough that the Seahawks offensive line was atrocious, but compared to the other backs, Lacy paled in comparison. In the end, he gave way to both C.J. Prosise and rookie Chris Carson, finishing with a paltry 7 (yes, seven!) offensive snaps on the day. When Rawls returns it would be a surprise to no one if Lacy were benched completely, or even cut.
Latest NewsSeahawks | Eddie Lacy unlikely to return (Thu Feb 15, 07:00 PM) - Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy is not expected to re-sign with the Seahawks this offseason. Our View: Lacy was a pretty big disappointment this year and with Chris Carson looking so good before his injury, there's no point in keeping Lacy around.
