Zac Stacy to get 70 percent of carries, eventually


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said running back Zac Stacy can be a workhorse. "I think over time, he'll probably be that 70-percent of the carries guy," Fisher said at the NFL owners meetings.

Stacy ran 250 times for 973 yards and seven touchdowns in 14 games as a rookie. He figures to approach 300 carries this season.


Zac Stacy could get more work in 2014


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Rams general manager Les Snead said Friday that running back Zac Stacy should be in line for more work in 2014, reports NFL.com.

"I think he should be more productive because he'll have more carries," Snead said. "When we drafted him, he's got nice patience, a nice vision, and if you really analyze running backs, a lot of those guys are the most successful. Because of those traits, it makes you think he can keep continue doing it."

Stacy started 12 games in 2013 and had 250 carries for 973 yards and seven touchdowns, and he added 26 catches for 141 yards and a touchdown. 


Zac Stacy a 'strong, reliable centerpiece' for Rams


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Rams rookie running back Zac Stacy got his first start Week 5 and never looked back, proving to be a "strong, reliable centerpiece for an offense that was at its best when Stacy was at its best," reports ESPN.com.

"I was given the opportunity and I pretty much just took advantage of it every week," Stacy said. "There’s really no secret sauce to what I’m doing. It all started up front with the offensive line and just being a pro about yourself. Staying an extra hour watching tape, staying an extra hour working on your footwork and craft and stuff like that.

"That’s one thing I’ve taken from guys like Chris Long, James Laurinaitis. One thing they told me is just be a true pro about yourself. Eat right, take care of your body. Little things like that." 

Stacy, who finished with 973 rushing yards and eight total touchdowns, appears to have done enough to go into 2014 as the starter, the report said. He said he plans to get a better grasp of the playbook, including pass protection, and get faster and stronger entering next season.


Zac Stacy's terrific rookie year ends with a thud


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) After back-to-back 100-yard games, Rams rookie running back Zac Stacy had a rough season finale at Seattle, carrying 15 times for 15 yards. The Seahawks sold out to stop the run and backup quarterback Kellen Clemens was unable to loosen them up.

Stacy caught all four of his targets for 23 yards in the 27-9 loss. He finishes the year with 250 carries for 973 yards and eight total touchdowns.

Stacy will enter 2014 as the featured back and should benefit from the return of starting quarterback Sam Bradford. 


Zac Stacy hoping to end season on high note


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy will attempt to end the season on a high note Sunday against the Seahawks in Seattle.

Stacy has been one of the biggest surprises in Fantasy football and despite missing three games earlier in the season, he is 42 rushing yards away from the 1,000-yard mark. Stacy rushed for 104 yards on a career-high 33 carries against Tampa Bay in Week 16. He has 235 carries for 958 yards and seven touchdowns, averaging 4.1 yards per carry. In a 14-9 loss to the Seahawks in Week 8, Stacy rushed for a career-high 134 yards on 26 carries.

The Seahawks have not allowed a rushing touchdown over the past eight games. Seattle has permitted 107.5 yards per game on the ground, which ranks 13th in the league. Opposing running backs have scored 13.13 Fantasy points per game this season. Stacy may be in for a tough matchup, but he should still be worth starting in the majority of Fantasy formats for Week 17.

Zac Stacy carries Rams to win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy had another productive game in Week 16 against the Buccaneers, as the Rams rode him to a 23-13 win.

Stacy finished with his second 100-yard game in a row Sunday, totaling 104 yards on a career-high 33 carries. He scored once in the game, his seventh touchdown in the last seven games, from 1 yard out in the second quarter. The lone blemish on his game came from a lost fumble. 

Stacy has 958 yards on the season, and seems likely to finish the season with more than 1,000. Not bad for a fifth-round draft pick who had just one carry through the first five games of the season. The Rams finish the season in Week 17 in Seattle.  


Zac Stacy is matchup proof


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/20/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy heads into Week 16 with a tough matchup on his hands at home against Tampa Bay. But no matchup is too daunting for Stacy based on his play this season.

The Buccaneers have only allowed six running backs to reach double digits in Fantasy points with two rushing touchdowns and three receiving scores. But Stacy has already proven he can overcome tough matchups.

He has at least seven Fantasy points in every game he's started this season, including double digits in matchups with Carolina and Seattle. By comparison, Carolina is No. 2 in Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs, Tampa Bay is No. 3 and Seattle is No. 4. Stacy also scored a touchdown against Arizona, which is No. 1 in that category.

Also, in his past four home games against Seattle, Tennessee, Chicago and New Orleans, Stacy has averaged 19.3 Fantasy points with three 100-yard games and four touchdowns. He should remain a must-start option in all leagues despite Tampa Bay's tough defense.


Zac Stacy not listed on injury report


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy was not listed on the team's injury report Wednesday. 

Stacy briefly left Sunday's game against the Saints due to a hip injury, and received a ton of work during the game. It was initially thought Stacy would not practice Wednesday due to the workload, but he was able to get out on the practice field. It looks like he's completely healthy going into Week 16.


Sore Zac Stacy likely to get Wednesday off


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy, who carried a season-high 28 times for 133 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Saints, isn't expected to practice Wednesday but should be fine for Week 16 vs. Tampa Bay.

“He’s going to be a little sore this week," coach Jeff Fisher said of Stacy, who briefly left the Week 15 victory with a hip injury. "Probably won’t practice Wednesday, but he came right back and played pretty well."


Zac Stacy runs wild in triumph over Saints


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) For a guy who left the game Sunday with a hip injury, Rams featured back Zac Stacy sure racked up some big numbers.

Stacy was the hero of his team's surprisingly lopsided defeat of New Orleans. His most critical carry was a 40-yard touchdown dash with four minutes remaining in the second quarter in which he made a strong cut to the outside to give his team a 24-3 halftime lead. But he also made a key run of 29 yards to set up a score in the first quarter. Not bad considering he departed briefly early with an ailing hip.

He finished with a season-high 28 carries for 133 yards - one off his high-water mark - and added a reception for 10 yards. In the process, he rebounded from his worst performance of the year in Week 14 against Arizona.

Stacy will seek to take his momentum and run with it next Sunday against the visiting Buccaneers.


Zac Stacy back into action against New Orleans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy recovered quickly from a hip injury that knocked him out briefly in the first quarter of the Sunday game against the Saints. He returned several minutes later.

Zac Stacy hurts hip, return questionable


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Rams featured back Zac Stacy injured his hip on his team's first possession Sunday against New Orleans. His return to the game has been deemed questionable. 

Zac Stacy should rebound Sunday against Saints


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) Fantasy owners of Rams featured back Zac Stacy should not be alarmed at his dramatic drop in production in Week 14. He should bounce back quite well Sunday against New Orleans.

Stacy managed just 25 yards on 14 carries last week, but it must be remembered that he was shut down by an Arizona run defense that rates among the best in the NFL. Week 15 foe New Orleans struggles in that department, ranking 29th in the league in yards yielded per attempt at 4.7.

The performance against the Cardinals would seem to be a hiccup rather than a trend. Stacy has rushed for 692 yards and four touchdowns in eight games since taking over the starting spot in early October.

Stacy should receive plenty of carries against the Saints as the Rams try to keep the ball away from their explosive offense. Two of the three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers rank him 13th and 15th among NFL backs this week. He is a strong No. 2 or flex option, particularly in deeper leagues.


Zac Stacy held in check Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy was held in check Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Stacy carried the ball 14 times for 25 yards. He averaged just 1.8 yards per carry. Stacy's day was salvaged by a 1 yard score. After Tavon Austin took an end-around for 56 yards, Stacy punched in the close touchdown. He didn't play a big role in the passing game, catching three balls for -3 yards. Stacy will look to get back on track Week 15 against the Saints.


Zac Stacy to be held in check Week 14?


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy could be in for a rough game Week 14 against the Cardinals. 

Arizona has been the best team against opposing running backs, limiting them to just 10.50 Fantasy points per game. Through 12 games, the team has allowed just four rushing touchdowns. Backs have averaged just 3.5 yards per carry against the Cardinals, which is the second-lowest rate in the league.

Stacy has jump-started St. Louis' running game this season, but didn't get his start until late in the season. In the team's first matchup with Arizona, Stacy tallied just one carry. Only one running back has rushed for 100+ yards against the Cardinals this season. Frank Gore needed 25 carries to tally 101 yards. Stacy is likely in for a rough day, and shouldn't be considered a strong Fantasy starter this week. 


Zac Stacy held to 72 yards in Week 13 loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy got the start a week after suffering a concussion and was held under 80 yards rushing during Sunday's loss to the 49ers in Week 13.

Stacy broke for an 11-yard run in the fourth quarter for his lingest gain of the day. In fact, he only had three runs for 8-plus yards in the game. He had 19 carries for 72 yards (3.8 yards per carry) and one catch for minus-1 yard in a 23-13 defeat.

Stacy has totaled 221 yards and two touchdowns on the ground over his last three games. He'll look to bounce back in Week 14 at Arizona.


Zac Stacy cleared for Week 13 at San Francisco


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) As expected, Rams running back Zac Stacy was ruled active for Week 13 at San Francisco. Stacy suffered a concussion in Week 12 against the Bears and will likely return to the starting lineup over Benny Cunningham. Stacy had 12 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game against Chicago.

Zac Stacy probable Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy is probable Week 13 against the 49ers.

Stacy is dealing with a concussion, but was cleared for contact. It looks as if he'll start Week 13 against San Francisco. 


Zac Stacy getting close to being cleared for Week 13?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy (concussion) was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, however, he didn't participate in any contact work, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. However, Stacy is expected to undergoing further testing Friday, at which time he might be cleared to play Week 13 at San Francisco.

Zac Stacy probably a risky Fantasy play for Week 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) The Rams have yet to provide an update for running back Zac Stacy, leaving his status up in the air for Sunday's showdown at San Francisco in Week 13.

Stacy had 12 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown before leaving Week 12 against the Bears with a possible concussion. He will need to pass a series of league-mandated tests before he is cleared to practice. Fantasy owners should continue to monitor his status for the next few days.

If healthy, Stacy would be facing a San Francisco defense that has allowed 103.5 yards per game on the ground, which is the 12th fewest allowed in the league. Opposing running backs have scored 16.91 Fantasy points per game this season against the 49ers.

Given how tough San Francisco's defense is, Stacy would've been a risky play for Week 13 even if healthy. Those that have an extra roster spot should look to pick up Benny Cunningham from waivers as a handcuff option in the event that Stacy is unavailable for Week 13. Otherwise, owners should use a running back with a more favorable matchup this week.

Zac Stacy has 87 yards before leaving with injury to head


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy had 12 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-21 win over the Bears. Stacy also caught one pass for 10 yards. 

Stacy left the game late in the second quarter, after a hit by Chicago's Major Wright. It appeared that Wright hit Stacy's head with either his shoulder or helmet on a tackle. Stacy immediately got up and signaled to the sideline to take him out. 

Benny Cunningham gained 109 yards on 13 carries in relief of Stacy. 

The Rams face the 49ers in Week 13. 


Zac Stacy leaves Week 12 with head injury


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy left the team's Week 12 matchup against the Bears with a possible head injury. He will not return.

Late in the second quarter, Stacy was hit on the head by Major Wright. It was unclear whether Wright hit Stacy with his shoulder or helmet, but Stacy got up, unsnapped his chin guard, and motioned to the sideline to take him out. 

Stacy had 12 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown (along with one catch for 10 yards) before leaving the game. 


Zac Stacy lined up for big Week 12 performance


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/22/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy has 26 or more carries in three straight games. He has two games with more than 125 rushing yards in that span, along with three touchdowns and nine receptions. 

In Week 12, Stacy gets to face a Bears defense that has allowed the fifth-most Fantasy points per game (20.6) to a team's opposing running backs. And that average is helped by Chicago's first three weeks, when opposing backs scored a total of 32 total Fantasy points. 

Over the last six games, the Bears have allowed 10 touchdowns to running backs, and five have rushed for 95 or more yards. That group of performances includes unlikely 100-yard games from Brandon Jacobs and Ray Rice. 

With Stacy seeing a high volume of carries and having relatively fresh legs off the bye, he is a must-start in a very favorable Week 12 matchup. 


Zac Stacy totals third rushing touchdown in last two games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy failed to surpass 100 rushing yards for a third straight game Week 10 at Indianapolis. However, he played a big role in a 38-8 rout of the AFC South-leading Colts.

Stacy rushed for 62 yards and one touchdown on 26 carries, while adding two catches for 6 yards. Stacy's third rushing touchdown in his last two games came on a 1-yard run in the second quarter.

Stacy might have had two touchdowns Sunday, but he couldn't cleanly take a handoff from quarterback Kellen Clemens at the 5-yard line in the first quarter. The fumble was recovered by Indianapolis. However, the fumble was charged to Clemens and not Stacy, despite it appearing Stacy should have cleanly taken the handoff.

The Rams are on a bye Week 11 before returning to action Week 12 vs. Chicago.


Zac Stacy continues to play through foot issue


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Rams running back Zac Stacy (foot) is active, as expected, for Week 10 against the Colts Sunday. Stacy was able to get through practice Friday without issue, and he played through this injury last week, so this does not come as much of a surprise.
