Stacy looks like the real deal with 1,114 yards from scrimmage and seven touchdowns in his rookie season. He should be a great bet to finish 2014 as a Top 10 fantasy back. The drafting of RB Tre Mason is a little cause for concern, but Stacy should still be the lead back with Benny Cunningham and Mason used as a change of pace and receiving option.
Johnson was viewed as a disappointment last year, but still finished as the 9th overall fantasy running back with 1,422 yards from scrimmage and 10 total touchdowns. He should lead the New York Jets in rushing attempts, but he will be in a timeshare with RB Chris Ivory.
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
A No-nonsense grinder who has good opportunity to bull way to 1,200+ yards, 10+ TDs
Looks like a 60/40 split w/ Ivory in backfield, but NYJ will be run heavy, so workload should be good enough
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Zac Stacy looked fantastic behind the Rams O-Line last season but the fear was that the Rams would draft a good running back in 2014 and they did just that selecting former Auburn standout Tre Mason. Mason has work to do in pass pro but has the natural talent to knock 3.89 ypc Stacy out of the RB1 conversation completely by mid-season.
Chris Johnson has joined the New York Jets and anyone who does not recognize the fear a Michael Vick/Chris Johnson tandem will instill in opposing defensive coordinators has not been following football close enough. The ‘fastest backfield ever built’ could propel the Jets to the playoffs and Johnson to RB1 numbers...but Geno Smith is being pushed by team brass to be the starter limiting Johnson’s fantasy value. Chris Ivory is a legit threat to steal carries but it would be very surprising to see Ivory not miss games with an injury or two this season.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
We saw enough in his rookie year to know he can produce double digit TD's and 1,500 combined running yards. He doesn't have name brand so he will slip in fantasy drafts, but is a very strong selection.
His role as an every down back are fading and he is going to be a bit of a gamble pick and may go too early in drafts.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
Stacy is the #1 back in St. Louis and should have plenty of work this season as the guy behind Sam Bradford. Barring injury, you should count on on Stacy as a low end RB1 or higher RB2.
CJ2K may not be a Titan heading into the season, make sure to keep track of his situation during the off season. Word is that the Titans have put Chris on the trading block. But that won't do any good. No one will take that contract, we will have to wait when the Titans finally release him.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Backup Cunningham pushing him for playing time with a better offseason.
Favorite to lead the run-heavy committee in NY, but will give way to Ivory at the stripe.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
The injury to Bradford changes Stacy's workload outlook considerably. Rams averaged 38 PA ATT/game with Sam last year and 26.4 w/o him.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
I'm not overly high on Stacy, who is a pure volume back. However, with Bradford out the Rams will run him into the ground. That gives him RB1 upside.
CJ2k wants 2k yds again. Not too likely without a true feature role, but he can still offer RB2 upside.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
Just short of 1,000 rushing yards in his rookie season. He had 7 rushing TDs. Zac Stacy will be the focus of the St. Louis Rams offense in 2014. He will need to improve on the 3.9 yards per carry from 2013. The league average was 4.2 YPC.
 
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
Definitely invest with caution, yet don't overlook Stacy in 2014. Tre Mason is a must-own.
 
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
The Rams were at their best last season when Stacy was grinding away and the defense was playing tough. They will try to do the same this season and Stacy is an every down back that can be had cheaper than most every down backs.
Not sure what to do with CJwhocaresK. He still has the speed and skill, but can you trust him to break a tackle? Sometimes, yes, so he has to be drafted. He'll be up and down all season, but put up a few big games to keep you believing.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
A very volume-dependent RB, albeit on a run-heavy team.
Wildly erratic from week to week. Let someone else deal with the frustration.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Coach Jeff Fisher said “over time” Zac Stacy will “probably be that 70-percent of the carries guy.” Stacy will gobble up carries in 2014 and be the focal point of the offense, similar to how Fisher used CJ?K in Tennessee. Rookie Tre Mason will more than likely be used as a change-of-pace back in 2014, if you were wondering. Stacy sits on the fence between RB1/RB2, however we see solid production coming from him this season.
Rex Ryan said Chris “CJ?K” Johnson was “flying” in the mandatory conditioning running. CJ?K was recently cleared after surgery on his 2013 torn meniscus injury. He’s in line to share a workload with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell and remains a low end RB2. Remember when Chris Johnson GUARANTEED to rush for 2,500 yards and win MVP, Geno Smith has GUARANTEED the Playoffs to New York in 2014 and Rex Ryan GUARANTEES everything. In other news, ESPN New York expects a timeshare/backfield by committee approach between CJ?K and Powell/Ivory this season. Johnson will see much less volume than he did in Tennessee and shouldn’t be viewed as the option he was in years past.
