Rams backfield share giving Fantasy owners headaches
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:06 pm ET) The Rams put a scare into Fantasy owner's hearts when Benny Cunningham got the start in the third preseason warmup game, but coaches were quick to stand by Zac Stacy as the team's lead back. After three games, the numbers back that up, but Stacy's hold on the role is clearly more tenuous than we might have thought even a month ago.

For the second time in three games, Stacy basically split the workload with Cunningham in Week 3. Stacy and Cunningham both played 34 of the team's 76, similar to Week 1, when Cunningham actually played one more snap. The overall season workload is skewed in Stacy's favor thanks to a 40-18 split in Week 2, but it's pretty clear these two are in a timeshare.

Stacy has been able to hold off Cunningham by just flat outworking him so far, averaging 4.3 yards per carry to Cunningham's 3.3. Stacy has also been more effective in the passing game, though it is concerning that Cunningham is still encroaching on his playing time with those edges.

At this point, both players need to be owned in all Fantasy leagues, as long as the team splits their time so evenly. However, until Stacy either pushed Cunningham out of the picture or abdicates the role, neither will be a particularly reliable Fantasy option.  

Benny Cunningham manages 37 yards in Week 3 loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/14) Rams running back Benny Cunningham managed just 29 yards on nine carries and added one reception for five yards in his team's 34-31 loss to the Cowboys in Week 3.

Cunningham received more action in Week 3 than he had in the first two weeks, getting nine carries to 12 for starter Zac Stacy, but he failed to impress with his totes while the starter broke off 5.6 yards per carry. Cunningham averaged 5.6 yards per carry last season and could work his way into more carries if he can approach that level in the coming weeks. The Rams are off in Week 4 before facing the Eagles.

Benny Cunningham limited to seven touches in Week 2
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/14) Rams running back Benny Cunningham took a backseat again to Zac Stacy in a Week 2 win over the Buccaneers.

Cunningham, who had just five carries in the opener against the Vikings, was often used as the team's third down back, and as a result, he was limited to seven touches. Cunningham took six handoffs for 15 yards, averaging 2.5 yards per attempt. He caught one of the two passes thrown his way for a gain of 4 yards in a 19-17 victory.

The Rams will be back at home to host the Cowboys in Week 3.

Zac Stacy, Benny Cunningham sharing pregame reps
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/7/14) Rams running backs Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham are sharing first-team reps during the pregame warmups, ESPN.com reports.

Stacy went first during warmups and is expected to start in Sunday's game against the Vikings, but Cunningham could see a significant amount of touches as well as the team focuses on running the ball when on offense.

Rams GM expects 'hot hand' approach at RB this season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/5/14) In an interview with WGNU 920 AM, Rams general manager Les Snead told the local radio station that he expects the offense to go with the "hot hand" in a given week at running back.

Although Zac Stacy did not start the third preseason game, he remains the starter for St. Louis. However, he could share his reps with Benny Cunningham against Minnesota in Week 1. Cunningham averaged 5.6 yards per carry last year and has been just as productive as Stacy in preseason.
