Ask the Expert Question: Pick one player you are most interested in watching int watching this weekend?

Full slate of preseason games starts next weekend. Pick one player -- rookie, veteran with a new team or coming off injury, or other reason -- that you're particularly interested in watching play, and say why.

Chargers and Seahawks play in the Week 1 Sunday Night Football preseason game this week. I am watching Eddie Lacy. The 2015 Pro Bowler is around RB25 or lower on most boards but I am high on the former Packer. He has hit the weight clauses in his contract and has received praise from head coach Pete Carroll. But I need to see him run. I need to see how Seattle uses him. And see how the team does with him versus Thomas Rawls or C. J. Prosise. He needs to meet my “eye” test. But if he does, he will be a bargain (or has been-I have drafted this guy every time I get the chance).

ASK THE EXPERTS appears weekly at with answers to a new question posted Thursday morning.
