Fantasy Impact: If you're taking Stacy in the second or third rounds of your 12 team draft, consider handcuffing him with Cunningham in the last round given that he virtually goes undrafted. That way you're protected against the fallout, whatever it may be.

After tonight's victory over the Browns, Rams coach Jeff Fisher said, "We just gave [Cunningham] a chance to run behind the first offensive line. We know what Zac can do." (Source: Nick Wagoner
Fantasy Impact: Really? Is Fisher another coach who likes to play with fake footballers' minds? If you're to believe Fisher, read nothing into this. Stacy is the starter, Cunningham the backup. Given that Cunningham has been twice as productive as Stacy in the preseason, I would be happier if Stacy's ADP were a round lower. As is, he is going in the 3rd round in most 12 league drafts, so take your chances...Stacy may or may not be the "bell-cow" we've been led to believe.

Zac Stacy rushed 6 times for 6 yards and caught one pass for 10 yards in the Rams' second preseason game against Green Bay.
Fantasy Impact: The Packers' defensive line was consistently winning in the trenches against the Rams' offensive line who were without two of their starters for this game. The good news is Stacy mostly stayed in the game on third downs except on pass plays when they substituted in Benny Cunningham. For right now, keep considering Stacy a RB2 for your mock and real fantasy drafts as the Rams continue to work on their offensive line.

Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said, "We're going to be a run-oriented football team." (Source: Kentucky.com
Fantasy Impact: Jeff Fisher may be getting his wish to be fielding a run-first team and what appears to be a high-powered defense. If you can't beat Seattle, then join them and beat them at their own game. With Benny Cunningham and Tre Mason considerably behind Zac Stacy in the pecking order, a big season from the sophomore back is definitely not out of the question.

Chris Wesseling of NFL.com reports that Zac Stacy is the clear favorite for the Rams' RB job as Coach Jeff Fisher has referred to third-round draft pick Tre Mason as a "change-of-pace" back. (Source: NFL.com)
Fantasy Impact: It doesn't look as though Stacy will have much competition for the running back job in St. Louis in 2014. Stacy was the bellcow in the games he started in the second half of last season, and barring injury, that should continue. With talk of Tre Mason taking away carries, Stacy's stock has been falling of late, which might make him a very good value as a mid-to-high end RB2.

The St. Louis Rams had a backfield of Isaiah Pead, Zac Stacy and Daryl Richardson going into the 2013 season. Two of these backs (Pead/Richardson) were coming off their rookie years, and Stacy was newly drafted. Pead, in his rookie season, carried the football 10 times for 54 yards (5.4 YPC). Stacy, who was a 5th round pick from the University of Vanderbilt, had a stat line of 1,167...
