With the Super Bowl more than a month in the rear-view mirror, free agency is finally upon us, and the fantasy values of many players will begin to take shape as we take a long-range view of the 2017 season. At this point, most of the major players in free agency have either re-signed or found a new address, of course running back is the exception, where players like Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles are still looking for work. Next time, we'll conclude this series with an overall recap of the free agency period. For now, here's the latest.
Eddie Lacy, Seattle Seahawks
With Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise returning to the Seahawks backfield in 2017, Lacy likely will find himself in a committee, but that could be in his best interest given his questionable conditioning the last couple years. Despite concerns about his weight, he's been productive throughout his career, as he's averaged at least 4.1 yards per carry in every season. In addition, aside from a serious ankle injury he suffered last season, he played in at least 15 games in each of his first three seasons with the Packers. However, since posting 1,178 yards as a rookie, his yardage totals decreased each subsequent season. He'll be running behind an offensive line that's significantly worse than the one he ran behind in Green Bay, and with potential workload concerns, it'll be hard to trust him as more than a RB3.
Latavius Murray, Minnesota Vikings
