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.


Zac Stacy held to 43 rushing yards in loss vs. Vikings


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy rushed for just 43 yards on 11 carries while adding eight yards on one reception in his team's 34-6 loss to the Vikings Sunday.

Stacy gave way to Benny Cunningham on one first-half drive and entered halftime with only four carries under his belt despite the Rams being within one score up until right before halftime. It was a questionable gameplan offensively after most expected the Rams to lean on the running game with starting quarterback Sam Bradford out for the season. Stacy will hope for better results when the team faces the Buccaneers in Week 2.


Zac Stacy, Benny Cunningham sharing pregame reps


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) 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
(9/5/2014) 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.

Zac Stacy could struggle vs. Vikings


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy lost his starting quarterback for the season during preseason competition. This is nothing new for the second-year back, as he had to play the second half of 2013 without Sam Bradford as well.

Though Stacy ripped off four 100-yard games after Bradford's injury, he mixed in several ugly lines as well, managing only 62 yards on 26 carries against the Colts, just 25 yards on 14 carries against the Cardinals and only 15 yards on 15 carries as the Seahawks exacted their revenge in Week 17.

Stacy's Week 1 matchup this season is a Vikings team that played well against the run last season. The Vikings finished seventh in the league in rate stuffing the running back at or behind the line of scrimmage. The defense surrendered just shy of 3.9 yards per carry, which is right at Stacy's per-carry rate from last season.

The Rams will likely try to remain committed to the running game with a second stringer at quarterback, but the Vikings have the personnel to sniff out a conservative gameplan and more or less shut down the running game. CBSSports.com Fantasy experts are split on Stacy's stock this week, with Jamey Eisenberg slotting him eighth at the position and Davie Richard ranking him 20th.


Zac Stacy had 'sluggish' training camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy, who did not start the third preseason game, has had a "sluggish" training camp, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The paper says "that could be bad news for Fantasy Football GMs who spend a second-round pick on Stacy."


Report: Zac Stacy still lead back for Rams


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy did not start the third preseason game, but he remains atop the depth chart, according to ESPN.com. Benny Cunningham, who got the start, is the No. 2 back ahead of rookie Tre Mason.

Zac Stacy was not demoted


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) The Rams' decision to start Benny Cunningham over Zac Stacy in Saturday's preseason game was not significant, coach Jeff Fisher told ESPN.com. "We just gave [Cunningham] a chance to run behind the first offensive line," Fisher said. "We know what Zac can do."

Cunningham rushed for 32 yards on five carries. Stacy entered on the second drive and gained 11 yards on five totes.


Zac Stacy gets benched on opening drive of preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy was not in the starting lineup Sunday night against the Browns.

Stacy was benched for Benny Cunningham on the opening drive before getting his first touch in the second drive. Stacy was limited to only two series of work with the first unit and finished with 11 yards on five carries. He was not targeted in the passing game.

Zac Stacy has quiet showing in preseason game No. 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Rams running back Zac Stacy failed to make much of an impact during Saturday’s preseason game against the Packers.

Stacy took one handoff for a gain of 1-yard, and finished the opening drive with minus-2 yards on three carries. He was limited to two series and took six handoffs for 6 yards. He caught his only targeted pass for a gain of 10 yards.


Tre Mason listed on fourth string


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) Rams rookie running back Tre Mason has a long way to go to earn meaningful snaps. The team's first depth chart lists him on the fourth team, behind starter Zac Stacy, backup Benny Cunningham and third-stringers Isaiah Pead and Chase Reynolds.

A third-round draft pick, Mason shares the fourth line of the depth chart with undrafted back Trey Watts.


Zac Stacy not the Rams' guaranteed starter?!


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said Tuesday that there was going to be competition for the starting running back job this summer, a surprise after Zac Stacy ran for 973 yards, caught 26 passes for 141 yards and totaled eight touchdowns in effectively 12 games. 

"We're just going to let them all roll and see what happens," Schottenheimer said. "Zac's obviously a really, really good player, but we're going to create competition for all the guys. That's a long way off, but we know we have a good stable group of backs and they all have different skill sets, which we'll try to use throughout the course of the year."

Schottenheimer later clarified that everyone on offense will compete for their jobs, including Sam Bradford at quarterback. But that "I expect to see multiple guys carry the football."


Report: Tre Mason could overtake Zac Stacy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Rams rookie running back Tre Mason will be "nipping at the heels of Zac Stacy for carries," reports ESPN.com. The website adds it would not be a surprise if Mason "usurped Stacy at some point, especially if Stacy struggles with nagging injuries again."

Mason ran for 1,816 yards for Auburn last season and was drafted No. 75 overall.


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.
