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.
Thomas is the only running back now in New Orleans that will see multiple targets per game and he will make good use of them.
  
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.
On the positive side, he had 147 rushes for 549 yards and three touchdowns to go along with 77 receptions for 513 yards and three touchdowns. The negative is he turns 30-years old in December and is in the last year of his contract. The Saints pass the ball a ton, Thomas will have RB3 value, even if he does not lead the team in carries.
  
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.
Pierre Thomas has never had more than 150 Rushing Attempts in a Season, he has only once accumulated over 700 Rushing Yards and will not light up the scoreboard with TD’s for fantasy owners. With Darren Sproles out of town, there will be a level of consistency associated with his 77 Receptions from last season. Thomas’ numbers are balanced between rushing and receiving yards, but he is a much better option in PPR Leagues due to the uptempo NOLA Offense and the receptions that he grabs as benefactor to that aerial assault.
  
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.
 
  
Sablich Brothers
The New York Times
Backup Cunningham pushing him for playing time with a better offseason.
Better PPR option as he'll operate almost exclusively as the passing down back.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
A very volume-dependent RB, albeit on a run-heavy team.
May well be the Saints' best RB, but he's destined to be a committee member.
  
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.
 
  
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.
These darn New Orleans RB's are going to continue to drive fantasy owners up-the-wall. Don't touch them unless the value is great. They will once again be splitting time on any given Sunday.
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
A No-nonsense grinder who has good opportunity to bull way to 1,200+ yards, 10+ TDs
 
  
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.
 
  
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.
Role has taken a hit and is in full blown RBBC.
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
Definitely invest with caution, yet don't overlook Stacy in 2014. Tre Mason is a must-own.
 
  
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.
Pierre Thomas saw 77 receptions last season and should approach that number again with Darren Sproles out of town. Some believe Mark Ingram will finally get feature back looks but Thomas will remain a fantasy asset regardless of how Ingram performs this season due to Thomas’ superior hands out of the backfield.
