Breer: Packers 'are going to be happy' with RB Eddie Lacy's fitness - [Full Article]

Appearing on Tuesday's edition of NFL Network's NFL HQ, NFL Media's Albert Breer added context to the recent photographic evidence that Lacy has succeeded in slimming down via workouts with P90X founder Tony Horton in Los Angeles.

Breer described Lacy's transformation as a "remarkable" redistribution of weight from his midsection to his shoulders and arms.

"I know the people around Eddie Lacy really feel like the Packers are going to be happy," Breer added, "with what they see when Lacy reports for the offseason program next week."

Teammate Datone Jones also stopped by NFL HQ on Tuesday, joking that he's "kind of jealous" of Lacy's results over the past two months.

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. McCarthy confirmed at the Combine that Lacy was working out with P90X creator Tony Horton. If this plan works -- and it sounds as if it has -- the talented runner has a good chance to return to the top 10 at his position.
