15Eddie Lacy

Eddie Lacy exploded onto the scene as Green Bay’s rookie running back in 2013. His vicious running style resulted in 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns. Lacy won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award. His early success on the ground came with a toll. He suffered two concussions in

his first seventeen games. The second came after Lacy initiated helmet-to-helmet contact with hard-hitting safety Kam Chancellor, leading Lacy to make a switch to his old helmet following his second concussion. He also recognized a need to alter his bruising style in the future to avoid harsh collisions. Lacy’s detractors may claim the running back’s alteration strategy somehow involved eating himself out of shape. Lacy had an abysmal 2015 season, managing only three touchdowns and 758 rushing yards. Although his speed and elusiveness took a hit, Lacy still makes a living between the tackles and remains one of the most physical halfbacks in the league.
