Rapoport: Packers RB Eddie Lacy 'committed' to weight loss

Key part of Packers plan to return to dominance: GB wants Eddie Lacy to lose 30 pounds. He's committed to it, thru camp or fitness program.

Fantasy Impact:

In his first two seasons, Lacy posted back-to-back top 8 finishes in both standard and PPR formats. In 2015, he finished 25th and 32nd, respectively, struggling both with his health and staying out of Mike McCarthy’s doghouse. His playing weight was a major topic of conversation all year, and it appears that both he and the Packers are serious about a significant weight loss program as he heads into a contract season. If this plan works, the talented runner has a great chance to return to the top 10 at his position.

ESPN - [Full Article]

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had a legitimate reason for pulling out of the Pro Bowl.

Rodgers underwent knee surgery within days of the team's Jan. 17 playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals, he confirmed to ESPN on Friday night.

One source described the surgery as a minor scope and a "cleanup of an old injury."

Rodgers told ESPN that he is "doing well" and "recovering on schedule."

Fantasy Impact:

This shouldn't affect his availability for offseason activities or his overall health heading into the 2016 season.
