Jeff Fisher: Zac Stacy 'could get 25 carries this week'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said the team's running back situation will continue to be a "week-to-week thing," adding Zac Stacy's lack of playing time Sunday wasn't an indicator of things to come. Stacy played one snap and got zero carries in the win over the Seahawks.

"We’ve got three outstanding runners," Fisher said, referring to Stacy, Benny Cunningham and rookie Tre Mason. "And as I mentioned, we think Trey Watts can also help us, so we’re going to use them all. It’ll be a week-to-week thing. Zac could get 25 carries this week. We had some things in early this week. It was working so we decided to stay with ‘Mase.' It’s nothing that Zac has done or hasn’t done. He’s been a little banged up the last couple of weeks, but obviously he’s an outstanding runner as well. We clearly have significant depth there at the position."

Fisher noted Stacy missed practice time the past couple weeks due to calf and ankle injuries.

"The good thing about this is he’ll come back and should be 100 percent this week and just see where it goes," Fisher said.

The Rams visit the Chiefs in Week 8.


Changing of the guard in Rams backfield


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2014) Though Zac Stacy was active after missing some practice time earlier in the week with an ankle injury, the Rams didn't seem terribly interested in using him in Week 7. And they didn't lean all that much on Benny Cunningham either, at least not as far as the running game was concerned. No, their primary ball carrier against division rival Seattle was Tre Mason, who didn't even debut with the team until Week 6. And he was a revelation in the role, picking up 85 yards on 18 carries, including a 6-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Cunningham was still involved in the passing game. In fact, he was the Rams' leading receiver with 46 yards on five catches, scoring a touchdown on one of them. But he carried the ball only two times for 3 yards.

Stacy, meanwhile, played only one snap and didn't get a single touch. It's possible the Rams were saving him with his ankle at less than 100 percent, but considering he practiced in full Friday, I doubt it. As the team's intended starter at running back, he never ran for more than 71 yards in any of his first five games, so Mason already has him beat.

Maybe you hold on to Stacy if you're the extra cautious type, but Mason looks like the Rams running back to own right now, with Cunningham also having some low-end appeal in points-per-reception leagues.


Zac Stacy gets one snap, no touches Week 7


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Once the Rams' starting running back, Zac Stacy was an afterthought Week 7 as rookie Tre Mason ascended into the spotlight. Stacy played one snap and got no touches in the 28-26 win over the Seahawks.

Stacy and the Rams visit the Chiefs in Week 8.


Zac Stacy suits up Sunday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy, who was probable with an ankle injury, is active as expected for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Rams RB Zac Stacy ruled probable for Seattle game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy practiced in full on Friday and was officially ruled probable for Sunday's Week 7 clash at home against the Seahawks, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Stacy missed practice Wednesday because of an ankle injury, but returned to action on Thursday and Friday. He only played 25 snaps in a Week 6 defeat to the 49ers.

Through five games, he has 240 yards and a touchdown on 61 attempts, averaging 3.9 yards per carry.


Rams RB Zac Stacy returns to practice Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy returned to the practice field on Thursday as a full participant, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Stacy missed Wednesday's session because of an ankle injury. He only played 25 snaps in a Week 6 defeat to the 49ers.

The Rams will host the Seahawks in Week 7.


Rams RB Zac Stacy misses practice Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, the team announced.

Stacy played on just 25 snaps in Week 6, but coach Jeff Fisher said his low amount of work wasn't health related. However, the running back was held out of practice Wednesday with an ankle isue. The team seems ready to use a committee at the running-back position moving forward.


Jeff Fisher: 'No problem' with committee at running back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher indicated he's leaning toward using all three of his running backs moving forward. Asked about a committee approach featuring Zac Stacy, Benny Cunningham and rookie Tre Mason, Fisher told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: "I have no problem with that. Nope."

In Monday's loss to the 49ers, Fisher added, "we were rolling all three of them."

Mason's 24-yard burst up the middle was the team's first run of at least 20 yards this season. "I liked the way he handled his first opportunity and made some explosive plays," Fisher said of the third-round pick, who was active for the first time this season.


Rams RB Zac Stacy's low Week 6 usage not health related


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Tuesday that Rams running back Zac Stacy wasn't dealing with health issues in Monday's Week 6 loss to the 49ers, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"There were no physical issues," Fisher said.

Stacy was ignored in the running game after the 49ers took a second-quarter lead, and he may continue to lose significant work to Benny Cunningham when the offense falls behind. Stacy managed just 17 yards on eight carries Monday.


Rams RB situation becoming a mess


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) Zac Stacy's Fantasy value took another hit in Week 6 with the emergence of Tre Mason, who was active for the first time against the 49ers. Though the rookie played only about one-third of the snaps Stacy played and just 12 percent of the team's overall, he led the team in rushing, gaining 40 yards on five carries. The first run of his career, a 24-yard scamper in the first quarter, was longer than any of Stacy's 61 this season.

Of course, the Rams running back who saw the most action, playing 51 percent of the team's snaps, was Benny Cunningham, who had a modest showing, rushing seven times for 21 yards and a touchdown and catching two passes for 12 yards. Stacy actually led the Rams in carries with eight, but for only 17 yards.

Hoping to make sense of it? Good luck. The Rams' backfield is becoming a mess on par with the Saints' -- except in this case, you can't be completely sure any of the players are actually good.

I can say that Stacy didn't get a single touch after the 49ers took the lead in the second quarter, so the Rams may not think he's as suited for comeback mode as Cunningham. The problem is they don't figure to be leading many games.

I'm not ready to cut Stacy yet, but he's looking like a sit in Fantasy. Cunningham might be the preferred start, but he's a low-end one at that. Mason, the change-of-pace guy, can remain on waivers for now.


Zac Stacy goes nowhere, loses ground in backfield committee


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy rushed eight times for 17 yards (2.1 ypc) in Monday's loss to the 49ers. He had a goal-line touchdown vultured by backup Benny Cunningham.

Stacy caught two of three targets for 17 yards. He lost carries to Cunningham, rookie Tre Mason and wideout Tavon Austin while setting a season low in yards from scrimmage. Stacy will try to bounce back Week 7 against Seattle.


Zac Stacy, Kenny Britt ready to face 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy (calf) and wideout Kenny Britt (knee) are active as expected for Monday night's game against the 49ers. Both had been listed as probable.

Rams RB Zac Stacy all but set for Monday night action


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2014) Rams featured back Zac Stacy appears ready to roll for the Monday night game against San Francisco. He was a full participant in Saturday practice and has been deemed probable.

Stacy, who has been dealing with a strained calf, has not missed a game this season. He has 253 yards rushing on 53 carries, but the Niners' sixth-ranked run defense will provide a stern test.


Rams' Zac Stacy returns to full practice Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy returned to full practice Friday.

Stacy did not practice Thursday, so his ability to practice in full came as a surprise. Stacy is dealing with a calf injury. The Rams play Monday, so Stacy will have an additional day to prepare. 


Rams' Zac Stacy misses practice Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy was unable to practice Thursday because of a calf injury, ESPN reports. Stacy suffered the injury Week 5 at Philadelphia. Head coach Jeff Fisher indicated that Stacy would miss some practice time this week due to injury. Luckily for Stacy, he'll have until Monday night to be ready for the 49ers in Week 6.

Calf just another reason to sit Zac Stacy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/9/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy has been a big-time disappointment as a rusher this season, unable to do much with his dozen carries a game because his longest run of the season is only 16 yards. But hey, he's making up for it by catching more passes, right?

That wouldn't be enough for me to keep him in my lineup this week, not with him facing the 49ers and certainly not with him nursing a calf injury. The 49ers rank fifth against the run, allowing 77.2 yards per game, and are tied with the Seahawks in surrendering the fewest Fantasy points per game to running backs. The calf is a muscle that's notoriously slow to heal. The Rams think he can play through it, but if he was sharing the workload before the injury, how many touches is he going to get with it?

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both have Stacy in their top 24 for this week, but I have a feeling that's going to change. I'd go with Ronnie Hillman over him. Doug Martin, too. And they have pretty stinky matchups themselves.


Jeff Fisher expects RB Zac Stacy to play Week 6


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said running back Zac Stacy could miss practice time this week due to his calf injury, but should play next Monday night against the 49ers, reports ESPN.com. He's run for 223 yards and a touchdown in four games.

Report: Rams RB Zac Stacy has strained calf


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy has been diagnosed with a strained calf, a source told NFL.com. He should be able to play Week 6 vs. San Francisco, according to NFL.com Insider Ian Rapoport.

Stacy was injured during Sunday's game at Philadelphia. He had 11 carries for 42 yards and four catches for 36 yards before leaving the game.


Immediate future cloudy for St. Louis RBs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Rams running back Benny Cunningham seemed like a threat to Zac Stacy's playing time in the offseason, but was largely a nonfactor through three games. However, a calf injury to Stacy Sunday could put Cunningham in line to start moving forward.

Cunningham was effective in Stacy's stead in Week 5, racking up 72 all-purpose yards on just 10 touches. He found the end zone on a 14-yard run in the third quarter, and showed he can fill in capably, if needed. However, the Rams have an extra day to prepare for Week 6 against the 49ers, with that game coming on Monday night, so Stacy may be able to get healthy.

Even if Stacy's injury proves serious, you might not want to write Cunningham into your starting lineup after picking him up on waivers. The 49ers are likely to provide an unkind welcome to Cunningham, as they have not allowed a running back to reach double figures in Fantasy scoring since Week 1.

Whether Stacy or Cunningham gets the start in Week 6, you might not find a starting Fantasy running back in St. Louis. 


Zac Stacy doubtful to return with calf injury


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy is doubtful to return to Sunday's game with a calf injury, the team announced.

Stacy fumbled the ball on a carry late in the third quarter and the announcement came soon after he left. His day likely comes to an end with 42 yards on 11 carries and 36 yards on four receptions.


Zac Stacy could find success through the air


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy is looking for his big breakout performance, and could have a chance to find it in Week 5 against the Eagles.

The Eagles have struggled mightily against opposing running backs this season, allowing 21.0 Fantasy points per game. That number is even higher since going up against the hapless Jaguars in Week 1, as the team's last three opponents have all put up 24-plus points against the Eagles out of the backfield.

The Eagles have actually held their own in the running game, with opposing backs averaging just 3.7 yards per carry. However, they have struggled to keep track of backs in the passing game, where they have allowed four touchdowns over the last three games. Stacy has not made a big impact as a receiver, but this could be his best chance to do so, especially if the Rams end up in a shootout.

Stacy has been splitting work more than we expected, but he should get a healthy role in Week 5. Keep him active. 


Rams backfield share giving Fantasy owners headaches


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) 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.  


Zac Stacy totals 121 yards in Week 3 loss vs. Cowboys


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy gained 67 yards on 12 carries and another 54 yards while catching five of his six targets in his team's 34-31 loss to the Cowboys in Week 3.

Though the Rams jumped out to a huge lead in the first half, they decided to put the game in Austin Davis' hands, with the quarterback throwing 42 times and Stacy receiving just 12 of the team's 30 rush attempts. After failing to average four yards per carry in either of his firs two games, Stacy averaged 5.6 yards per carry Sunday while also getting the job done through the air after recording only one reception in his first two games. Stacy and the Rams get next week off before heading to Philadelphia to face the Eagles in Week 5.


Zac Stacy a strong start again


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) The Zac Stacy we know and love showed up in Week 2 at Tampa Bay when he had 19 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown (with a lost fumble).

By comparison, Benny Cunningham had just six carries for 15 yards and one catch for 4 yards. Prior to Week 1 against Minnesota, Stacy had been stellar at home with double digits in Fantasy points in five of the first six games he started in St. Louis.

The Cowboys have yet to be exposed with their run defense, and they only allowed a touchdown to Carlos Hyde in Week 1. Stacy should get his usual volume of work to make him worth starting in the majority of leagues.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


Zac Stacy scores first touchdown in win over Tampa Bay


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy received the bulk of the carries and scored his first touchdown of the season Week 2 against Tampa Bay.

Stacy ripped a 7-yard run on his first touch of the afternoon. He took six handoffs for 23 yards on the opening drive, which was capped off by a 1-yard touchdown run. He lost a fumble in the third quarter, which resulted in a Tampa Bay touchdown. Stacy finished the game with 19 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown, averaging 3.7 yards per attempt in a 19-17 victory. He was not targeted in the passing game.

Stacy has 30 carries for 114 yards and a touchdown on the ground through two games. He will look to stay productive at home against the Cowboys in Week 3.
