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.


Tre Mason still an iffy start


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) Even if you don't buy coach Jeff Fisher's assessment that the Rams' running back situation is a "week-to-week thing" and that ousted running back Zac Stacy "could get 25 carries this week," it doesn't change the fact that he said it, and he's the only who really knows anything. 

That concerns me as someone who put in a big bid for Tre Mason in Fantasy this week. When Mason ran for 85 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries against Seattle in Week 7, it wasn't just a breakthrough performance for him. It was also the best individual rushing performance the Rams have had all season. And Stacy is largely to blame for that. His longest run in five games this season was a 16-yarder Week 3 against Dallas. Mason in two games already has two runs longer than that.

The matchup Week 8 at Kansas City isn't a slam dunk. The Chiefs rank in the middle of the pack against the run, but because they have yet to allow a touchdown on the ground, they've allowed the sixth-fewest Fantasy points per game to running backs. It wouldn't be enough to scare me away from Mason if I could trust he has a feature role, but with Fisher getting cute about it, I can't.

Since Mason appears to be the Rams' best rusher, I think he will eventually, but Mason seems like a better stash than start except in an emergency right now.


Taking a look at the waiver wire for running backs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With a slew of running backs injured or on bye in Week 8, the waiver-wire is going to be a feeding frenzy this week. In his weekly waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg, tabs Bills back Bryce Brown (4 percent ownership) as the must-add option.

Brown is set to see a larger role in the wake of injuries to C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who can be freely dropped at this point. The Rams' Tre Mason (17 percent), the Jaguars' Denard Robinson (5 percent), the Saints' Travaris Cadet (4 percent) and the Panthers' Jonathan Stewart (47 percent) round out the rest of the top-five for the running back priority list. 


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.


Tre Mason seizes opportunity in Week 7 victory


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Rams rookie running back Tre Mason got his first start Week 7 and seized the moment, gashing the Seahawks for 85 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries. Mason averaged 4.7 yards per carry and broke the Rams' longest run this season, a 28-yarder, on the team's third possession.

Mason made a vicious jump-cut on his 6-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. He was not targeted in the passing game. With the Rams trying to run out the clock, Mason fumbled when he was hit from behind. Officials ruled St. Louis recovered.

Mason likely earned a second straight start Week 8 at Kansas City.


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 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.


Rookie Tre Mason leads Rams in rushing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Active for the first time this season, Rams rookie running back Tre Mason led the team with 40 yards rushing on just five carries Monday night. Mason averaged 8.0 yards per tote and showed a lot of burst against a staunch 49ers' defense.

He touched the ball on his first snap, taking a screen 12 yards. It was his only target.

Mason figures to be part of the game plan Week 7 when the Rams host the Seahawks.

Report: Zac Stacy still lead back for Rams


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Tre Mason racks 51 yards in debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Rams rookie running back Tre Mason cracked the half-century mark during Friday's preseason opener at home against the Saints.

Because Isaiah Pead was inactive, Mason worked behind Zac Stacy and backup Benny Cunningham. He entered the game in the second quarter but made most of his impact with the third-stringers. He rushed for 51 yards on 15 carries, averaging 3.4 yards per attempt. He was targeted once in the passing game and finished without a grab.

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.


Benny Cunningham ahead of Tre Mason for backup job


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Rams running back Benny Cunningham has "held on firmly to the primary backup role" behind Zac Stacy, reports TurfShowTimes.com. Cunningham, who averaged 5.6 yards per carry last year, is holding off third-round pick Tre Mason.

Jeff Fisher calls Tre Mason a 'change-of-pace back'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher referred to third-round pick Tre Mason as "a change-of-pace back," reports the Montgomery Advertiser. "Good zone runner, obviously the numbers speak for themselves," Fisher said. "He was a guy we just couldn't pass up at that point."

Mason will serve as a complement to lead runner Zac Stacy.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rams draft Auburn RB Tre Mason


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the 75th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Rams selected Auburn running back Tre Mason .

Drawing comparisons to Ray Rice, the 5-foot-9, 209-pound speedster was the first player since Bo Jackson to lead the Tigers in total offense in 2013, breaking Bo's single-season rushing record with 1,816 yards. Mason has quick feet, good hands and a strong but small body. It made for an effective combination as Mason had over 1,000 yards rushing in each of the past two seasons, totaling 2,623 yards on 454 carries with 30 touchdowns.

Mason could earn a spot on special teams and also cut into the offense as a third-down back.
