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.
The Lamar Miller hype train is cranking up to full speed again. He's been bandied about as the #1 back heading into training camp and is "well ahead" of Moreno but is it all for not? The talent is there but can he cash in?
  
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.
 
  
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.
He doesn't find the end-zone enough for me and he is typically in a running back by committee situation. He is bench worthy, but his upside is limited.
  
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.

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.
There’s a lot of “things” that can happen in Miami that can end up changing Lamar Miller’s rank, ala Knowshon Moreno. The Dolphins brought in former Philly Eagles OC Bill Lazor who had the 4th most rushing attempts in the NFL last year (the Dolphins ranked 29th in rushing attempts.) Lazor plans to open the field a lot more this year (a good thing for Mike Wallace) and play at a faster pace, all good things for Lamar Miller owners. The Miami Dolphins have improved their Offensive line since the drama that occurred last season, which will limit the amount of Pass Protection from Miami RB’s. Last season Lamar Miller stayed in to pass protect 127 times (5th most in the NFL) and Daniel Thomas 91 (19th most). A healthy and in shape Knowshon Moreno will definitely pose a threat to Lamar Miller’s Fantasy Production, keep posted to @LegionReport as I’m sure things will change closer to drafts.
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
A No-nonsense grinder who has good opportunity to bull way to 1,200+ yards, 10+ TDs
 
  
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.
Probably one of the more undervalued gems in the middle of drafts thanks to shaky 2013. Moreno is looking like a bust, which could mean big things for Miller.
  
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.
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
A very volume-dependent RB, albeit on a run-heavy team.
Could have better blocking, better scheme, bigger role. A potential bargain.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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.
I think Miller will benefit from new offensive coordinator, Bill Lazor. The problem is that with the addition of RB Knowshon Moreno, he is going to be stuck in a committee with Moreno and RB Daniel Thomas.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Backup Cunningham pushing him for playing time with a better offseason.
Has failed to impress through three preseason games.
  
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.
Lamar Miller has been impressing more than the out-of-shape KnowShown Moreno and is the new favorite for lead back duties in Miami though both figure to have weekly flex upside until a clear lead back emerges.
