2013 Fantasy Football Profile: Do Not Make the Mistake of Drafting Eddie Lacy
Name: Eddie Lacy
Team: Green Bay Packers
Position: Running back
Years Pro: Rookie
Draft Stock: (Stagnant) Although Green Bay has plenty of less-than-knowledgeable football fans, the smart ones know that the Packers’ offense begins and ends with Aaron Rodgers. Lacy’s popularity in college is helping his draft stock as owners keep taking the rookie running back earlier than he deserves.
2012 fantasy impact: Much like other running backs in his draft class, Lacy was a workhorse during college and it could come back to haunt him as his professional career unfolds. With that being said, Lacy was very successful with the Alabama Crimson Tide and he could very easily follow in the successful footsteps of Trent Richardson, who is a top-caliber player this fantasy season.
Best-case scenario: Lacy becomes the go-to guy in the red zone and doesn’t interfere with Rodgers‘ high powered offense. Green Bay also uses him as its first every-down back since Ryan Grant.
Worst-case scenario: Rodgers’s takes all production from Lacy and the running game in Green Bay is once again nonexistent. Also, the injuries from Lacy’s past rear their ugly head and the Pack are back to where they started in the backfield.
Where you should draft him: Lacy is currently a hot commodity around the sixth round, but that is way too high and you can get better players than an overrated rookie like Lacy in that spot.
