Packers' Lacy doesn't watch, follow football but does 'play it pretty good'

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Eddie Lacy was playing football one day in middle school when a classmate of his made a move out of the backfield and shouted "L.T.," as in LaDainian Tomlinson. At the time, Tomlinson was in the prime of his career with back-to-back seasons of 1,600-plus rushing yards and 32 combined touchdowns. Anyone who had any knowledge of the NFL knew who Tomlinson was.

Fantasy Football: Dan Herron Among Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

It wasn’t too long ago that NFL backfields seemed a bit less cluttered. From Shaun Alexander (remember him?) to LaDainian Tomlinson, from Maurice Jones-Drew to Adrian Peterson, bell-cow backs once shouldered the load for their offenses — and your fantasy team — en route to monster numbers. Of course, plenty of teams still operate with a featured back in today’s NFL. Yet...

Oklahoma’s Samaje Perine Rushes For 427 Yards, Sets FBS Record (GIF)

Heisman Forecast: History shows Gordon's record run not enough

Melvin Gordon has his place in NCAA history, but it's not one that has proven a springboard to claiming a Heisman Trophy.

Touches Added to Play Index

You often hear about dangerous workloads for NFL running backs and the struggles many have had after particularly taxing seasons. But, particularly in this era, the running game is only part of the equation for backs (though we won't opine on whether or not receptions are less taxing than rushes). Many of them are 3-down players heavily involved in the passing game. With that in...
