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. He was limited at times during OTAs, but Lacy is expected to be ready for training camp.

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.
