Rams get offensive contributions in Week 13 blowout


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) St. Louis blew out the Raiders 52-0 on Sunday, and several Rams joined in the fun. Wideout Tavon Austin found the end zone for the second straight week, scoring on an 18-yard run in the first quarter. He rushed twice for 24 yards and caught two of five targets for 11 yards.

Running back Zac Stacy carried seven times for 25 yards, and running back Benny Cunningham had a 5-yard carry.

Wideout Kenny Britt caught his only target for 13 yards. Tight end Cory Harkey secured both his targets for 12 yards and a score. They'll all visit the Redskins in Week 14.


Rams RB Zac Stacy staying prepared amid 'strange situation'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) While Rams running back Zac Stacy leads the team with 257 rushing yards, his playing time has dropped off in recent weeks as Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham have received the bulk of reps.

"It’s a unique situation, a very strange situation," Stacy said Wednesday, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "But at the end of the day, it’s a business -- some players tend to forget that -- but I’m still here, obviously, and I’m fortunate to have this opportunity to play in the league.

"It doesn’t matter if you’re first string or fifth string, you just have to be professional about yourself in terms of preparation."

Rams coach Jeff Fisher lauded Stacy for his professionalism and unselfishness as his playing time has dwindled. 

"We’ve not lost faith or confidence in him," Fisher said. "We’ve got good backs, just can’t play them all."


Jeff Fisher: RB Tre Mason 'missed a couple holes'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said rookie running back Tre Mason "played pretty well" in the Week 9 win at San Francisco. Mason rushed 19 times for 65 yards (3.4 ypc) and caught one pass for minus-8 yards.

"He missed a couple holes but he ran real hard," Fisher said. "He overcame some things. His ball security’s good, pass protection is good. He needed to get out in the routes. I thought he played pretty well."

Despite Mason's big workload, Fisher said the backfield remains a committee, and Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham will get work moving forward.


Jeff Fisher refuses to call RB Tre Mason the starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Rams rookie running back Tre Mason carried 19 times in the Week 9 win at San Francisco, compared to four for Benny Cunningham and zero for Zac Stacy. But coach Jeff Fisher on Monday declined to name Mason the starter or primary option, reports ESPN.com.

Fisher insisted the team hasn't lost faith in Stacy, who's averaged 3.9 yards per carry with one touchdown and two lost fumbles this season.


Tre Mason in; Zac Stacy out?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/3/2014) Even after rookie Tre Mason ran for 85 yards on 18 carries against Seattle in Week 7, Rams coach Jeff Fisher insisted that Zac Stacy would still have a major role and even boasted that he could get 25 carries in Week 8.

He didn't get 25, of course, but five and did far less with them than Mason did with his seven. So Week 9 at San Francisco, as should have been the case all along, Stacy was nowhere to be found, and Mason was again leading the Rams with 19 carries for 65 yards.

It wasn't an eye-opening performance, but against a defense that entered the day ranked fourth against the run, it was validation enough. Stacy, who has yet to have a carry of more than 16 yards this season, is out, and Mason, who has had at least one carry of more than 16 yards in three of his last four games, is in. And Fantasy Football is all the better for it.

Now let's hope Fisher keeps his mouth shut and doesn't try to confuse us all again.


Jeff Fisher fine with running back committee


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher indicated he has no problem with continuing to split carries among running backs Zac Stacy, Benny Cunningham and rookie Tre Mason. In Sunday's loss at Kansas City, Mason got seven carries, Stacy received five and Cunningham, four.

"When they got their opportunities they all were productive," Fisher said. "The average per carry is about the same. We'll see. We may settle into something this week."

Fisher said the committee approach won't make it harder for his backs to get into a rhythm. St. Louis visits the 49ers in Week 9.


Rams back to running back by committee


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) After rookie Tre Mason appeared to take a leading role Week 7 against Seattle, rushing for 85 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries, the Rams went running back by committee again Week 8 at Kansas City. Mason led the team in carries, but he had only seven. Meanwhile, Zac Stacy got five, and Benny Cunningham got four.

Stacy was once again the weak link, gaining just 17 yards. Though he's been the Rams' leading ball carrier this season, his longest run is only 16 yards. In this game alone, Mason had a run of 14 yards, and Cunningham had a run of 18 yards.

Coach Jeff Fisher said prior to Week 8 that Stacy could get 25 carries against the Chiefs, but clearly, he wasn't effective enough to justify so many. Frankly, he hasn't been effective enough to justify any at this stage of the game, but the Rams need more convincing. Because Mason was again their most effective rusher in Week 8, it's probably just a matter of time.

Of the three, Mason is the one to own right now even if you can't start him just yet. Cunningham has some appeal in deeper PPR leagues. Stacy is probably just a waste of a roster spot.


Rams running backs combine for 76 rushing yards in Week 8 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Rams running backs Tre Mason, Benny Cunningham and Zac Stacy combined for 76 rushing yards and 29 receiving yards during a 34-7 loss Week 8 at Kansas City. Though, none of the three running backs had a touchdown.

Mason had a team-high 32 rushing yards on seven carries, while Cunningham had 27 rushing yards on four carries and Stacy had 17 rushing yards on five carries. Cunningham drew the start and had the first carry.

Stacy led the running backs with 20 receiving yards on three catches. He was targeted four times. Cunningham had one catch for 8 yards, while Mason had one catch for 1 yard.

The Rams are back in action Week 9 at San Francisco.


Rams 'likely fielding calls' for RB Zac Stacy before deadline


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) After taking a backseat to Benny Cunningham and rookie Tre Mason last week, the Rams are likely fielding some phone calls about the availability of running back Zac Stacy leading up to Tuesday's trade deadline, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Stacy was an afterthought against the Seahawks in Week 7, failing to earn a carry in a 28-26 win over Seattle. He has 61 carries for 240 yards and a score this season.


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.
