Fantasy Slant: Eddie Lacy to the Seattle Seahawks

Coming off a 2016 campaign that saw him miss all but five games due to an ankle injury, former Pro Bowl running back Eddie Lacy had to wait to see how the free-agent market would play out for him. 

Now, nearly a week after free agency itself opened, Lacy signed a one-year, $3 million deal wit the Seattle Seahawks, a contract that could be worth $5.5 million should he hit incentives. 

Lacy, 26, is coming off two down seasons with the Green Bay Packers after putting up over 3,000 total yards and 24 touchdowns in his first two seasons in the NFL. 

Injury issues and conditioning problems surely played a role in Lacy's regression and eventual departure from Green Bay. Now, weighing in at a reported 267 pounds, one has to wonder whether this will follow him to the Pacific Nrothwest. 

With the addition of Lacy and his $3 million guaranteed, it's almost a foregone conclusion that he will make the Seahawks' roster. This will have a direct fantasy impact on what we see from both Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise moving forward. 

Also proving himself to be injury plagued, Rawls has the talent to be a top-end fantasy back. He's put up 1,351 total yards and is averaging a robust 4.6 yards per rush in 22 career games since being picked up as an un-drafted free agent prior to the 2015 season. 

Needless to say, the addition of Lacy pretty much makes Seattle's running back situation a no-go from a fantasy perspective.
