RB - FA
Week 5 Outlook
Former New York Jets and Los Angeles Rams running back Zac Stacy has announced his retirement from the NFL.
After three NFL seasons, Stacy has announced his retirement from the league. He'll finish his short career with 357 carries for 1,355 yards rushing and 10 total touchdowns.
The New York Jets have waived RB Zac Stacy (leg) with a failed physical designation. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is suggesting that the Jets needed the roster spot and could bring Stacy back later in the year.
After a promising rookie campaign with the Rams in 2013, Zac Stacy fell off of the fantasy radar in the next two seasons. In 2015 with the Jets, Stacy appeared in seven games and totaled 154 yards and a touchdown. He has no fantasy value entering the 2016 season.
The Jets announced that Zac Stacy underwent ankle surgery to repair a fracture. He will miss the remainder of the season.
Stacy was the No. 2 RB during BIlal Powell's absence and also played a role on special teams. He finishes the season with 31 carries for 89 yards and a TD. He also contributed 9 receptions for 65 yards. The 24-year-old has another year remaining on his contract at a cap friend $675,000.
New York Jets running back Zac Stacy had 13 carries for 47 yards in his team's 34-20 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon. It was a big increase in production from the Jets' game in London, where Stacy only saw the ball five times - although he did have a touchdown.
Stacy is slowly establishing himself as the Jets' No. 2 back behind Chris Ivory. But with Ivory playing as well as he has been through the first five games, there is no chance that the former St Louis Ram will supplant him as the starter. However, should Ivory go down with injury at any point, picking up Stacy is advisable.
New York Jets running back Zac Stacy had two carries for three yards, and attempted a couple of kick returns against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday - neither of which were very successful.
Stacy is far removed from an impressive rookie campaign which saw him rack up 973 yards and seven touchdowns in 14 games. In fact, he looks a shell of his former self as he started behind Bilal Powell, with Chris Ivory sitting out. He's a fantasy no-go at this point in time.
