2016 Outlook

Listen, the wheels came off this Green Bay offense in all phases of the game in 2015. Anyone who invested heavily in Green Bay players last year probably didn’t fare very well, and that certainly applies to Lacy owners. Lacy, whose first two years in the league put him on an impressive trajectory, completely and utterly stunk in his third season. The Alabama back packed on weight, looked slow, was benched for stretches of the season, and finished as a meek RB2 despite finishing in the top-10 his first two years in the league. He lost nearly all of the passing game work, catching only half as many (20) than Starks (43). The combination of being a dual threat, and a goal line back previously gave Lacy such a high floor. Scoring only three touchdowns on the ground, and catching only 20 more passes than me wasn’t a recipe for success. But can Lacy rebound and not only help this Green Bay offense, but his fantasy owners as well?

The answer is a resounding “maybe”. Running backs, more than any other position in football, crash and burn with alarming frequency. Injuries take their toll, and a guy who runs with a punishing style like Lacy needs to stay in top physical form. All indications are Lacy is significantly trimmed up, but how long with that last? I also think it’s telling the normally financially stingy Packers resigned Starks for a few million a year, a number that tells me he’s more than a caddy for Lacy. I honestly think the Packers lost some faith in their young runner, and he’s going to have to work hard to get it back. There is some risk here for a guy coming off a very poor season, but he’s got top-5 talent, and if this offense gets back on track, Lacy could return some tremendous value. Don’t reach for him, but if falls in your lap, take the chance, as most of the top running backs come with serious question marks anyway.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury James Starks on the practice field Wednesday
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 9, 12:15 pm

Green Bay Packers
Sounds like James Starks and Jared Cook have a chance to play this week at Tennessee. "James is going to practice (today), we'll see it goes. Same with Jared," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "We're going to put them in the limited category, but we're going to cut them loose today." (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: How Starks responds on Thursday will be key for his availability on Sunday against the Titans. The Packers have all but abandoned the running game since losing Starks and Eddie Lacy to injury. If Starks does return Sunday, he'll be tough to trust as a Flex option given how well Ty Montgomery has performed.


Injury Don Jackson likely to start Week 7 vs. Bears
Eddie Lacy expected to miss most of regular season
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 20, 1:50 pm

Green Bay Packers
The Packers will determine later if Eddie Lacy’s season is over. But tonight, newly promoted RB Don Jackson will be the main back. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Owners can pretty much stick a fork into the impending free agent for 2016 as IR will keep him out until late into December. Even though the Packers traded for Knile Davis on Tuesday, Jackson is the right choice to start against the Bears if only because he has been around the team and should know the offense. Ty Montgomery, Knile Davis and perhaps even Randall Cobb might get some backfield work, so Jackson is a desperation start at best tonight. Davis is the better long-term bet, however.


Injury Eddie Lacy headed to IR, ankle surgery
Don Jackson expected to be activated from practice squad
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 20, 1:45 pm

Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy needs ankle surgery and will be placed on injured reserve, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Thursday. The Packers are unsure if Lacy will miss the remainder of the season, the source said. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Packers are expected to promote Don Jackson from the practice squad in time for tonight's game against the Bears. Lacy can be dropped from re-draft leagues once he officially goes on IR. Expect Ty Montgomery and Knile Davis to handle most of the work in the backfield tonight with Davis possessing more upside moving forward.


Injury Lacy misses practice Tuesday
Status for Thursday up in the air
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Oct 18, 2:30 pm

Green Bay Packers
Eddie Lacy didn't practice Tuesday, and a source told @Edwerderespn , "I can't see him playing'' Thursday against the Bears. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Packers traded for Knile Davis today and it's not out of the question for him to be the main ball carrier for the Packers on Thursday given the injuries at the position.


Injury Eddie Lacy expected to play
Cobb to see snaps as backup RB
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 16, 7:30 am

Green Bay Packers
Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) is expected to play… but he’s the only RB who’ll be active. Expect WR Randall Cobb(!) to be the backup RB. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: James Starks was ruled out yesterday. Lacy should be a workhorse as long as he remains healthy. We've noted all week during Lacy updates that Cobb would likely see some extra touches from the backfield, increasing his fantasy value in Week 6.


Injury James Starks ruled out
Lacy remains Questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 15, 2:30 pm

Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers will be without running back James Starks (knee) and may be without cornerback Quinten Rollins (groin) Sunday when they take on the Dallas Cowboys. (Press Gazette)

FFToday's Take: Starks is dealing with a knee injury and also missed time with the team this week due to a death in the family. Eddie Lacy remains questionable. With Starks out, don't be surprised if Randall Cobb sees a few extra snaps at running back in Week 6.


Injury Starks out until Saturday, Lacy nursing ankle
Lacy on track to play
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 13, 12:30 pm

Green Bay Packers
McCarthy said James Starks is out of town and will not return to Green Bay until Saturday. It means that Starks will have one day of practice at most to test his knee, if he's cleared, as well as wrap his mind around this week's game plan. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

FFToday's Take: It appears Eddie Lacy is working through his ankle injury and should be able to play this week. Starks is away from the team due to a death in the family. Starks' knee injury could sideline him this week, meaning Randall Cobb could see a few snaps at running back against the Cowboys.


Injury Eddie Lacy's ankle a lingering concern
Status versus Cowboys unknown
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Oct 12, 2:07 pm

Green Bay Packers
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- If Eddie Lacy plays on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, he’ll do it without a full week of practice. The Green Bay Packers running back won’t be on the field for Wednesday’s practice and instead will spend that part of the afternoon trying to strengthen his sprained left ankle. (ESPN.com)

FFToday's Take: There is a real chance that Eddie Lacy sits out this week. Plan on him being a game-time decision with backup James Starks waiting on standby. Starks posted 103 total yards and two touchdowns against Dallas last December.


Injury Eddie Lacy suffers ankle injury on SNF
HC: Injury "not serious"; RB should be fine for Week 6
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 10, 5:40 pm

Green Bay Packers
Eddie Lacy's injury is "not serious" but not sure of his availability for this week. Cobb is sore and should be fine for Sunday. (Packer Report)

FFToday's Take: Lacy got rolling a bit against the Giants (11 carries for 81 yards) and is averaging 5.5 YPC through four games, which makes it a bit mysterious as to why Green Bay hasn't called more runs. James Starks has been dreadful thus far and HC Mike McCarthy recently talked about getting Lacy more touches going forward, so this injury - and the fact a Green Bay RB has yet to score a touchdown - may present of a buy-low window for Lacy, who has always been a bit of a slow starter anyway.
