Description: Rams running back Zac Stacy was better in Week 2, posting 71 yards and a score on 19 rushing attempts, but he's still not playing up to expectations.
Insight: The Rams offense is trying to find its way under the direction of quarterbacks Austin Davis and Shaun Hill. Stacy should continue to get the bulk of the rushing attempts, he's averaging 15 per game, but that's less than he got as a starter last season, so his upside may be a bit more limited.

Description: According to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com, Rams running back Zac Stacy has been getting most of the work with the first team during training camp.
Insight: The Rams drafted RB Tre Mason in the third round this year, so Stacy probably won't average 20.8 carries per game again like he did in his 12 starts last season. However, Mason likely won't be more than a change-of-pace back and Stacy should still see roughly 17 carries per game plus all the goal-line work.
 
7/18/2014 9:01:00 PM
Description: Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com predicts rookie running back Tre Mason will get 8-10 carries per game for the Rams this season.
Insight: Zac Stacy saw 249 carries across his 12 starts in 2013, or 20.8 per game, and St. Louis really didn't use a backup much during that stretch. Mason stealing 8-10 carries per game would be devastating to Stacy's fantasy value unless the Rams plan to run the ball more than they did last season (St. Louis averaged 24.25 non-quarterback runs per game). We expect Stacy to still see around 17 touches per game and all the goal-line work, so his 27.1 ADP in fantasyfootballcalculator.com mock drafts is reasonable.

Description: According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Rams coach Jeff Fisher addressed running back Zac Stacy's future role with the team on Wednesday. "I think over time, he'll probably be that 70-percent-of-the-carries guy," Fisher said.
Insight: What does he mean, over time? In 12 games as St. Louis' starting tailback last season, Stacy averaged 20.8 carries. He should be a late first-round or early second-round pick in 2014 drafts.
 
Hot12/22/2013 5:44:00 PM
Description: Rams running back Zac Stacy had his second straight 100-yard game and scored a touchdown for the seventh time in the last seven games Sunday against the Buccaneers.
Insight: Stacy took 33 handoffs in Week 16 and has averaged 21.3 carries per game in 11 games since taking over the starting job. He needs 42 rushing yards in Week 17 to hit the 1,000-yard mark.
 
12/15/2013 7:49:00 PM
Description: Rams running back Zac Stacy galloped for 133 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries Sunday against the Saints.
Insight: It was his first 100-yard game since Nov. 3 against the Titans. Stacy is just 146 yards away from 1,000 yards with two games to play even though he had just one carry in the first four games.

Description: Rams running back Zac Stacy (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, according to Nick Wagoner of espn.com. However, he did do some work in the walkthrough and ran on the side.
Insight: Stacy will have to pass the NFL's concussion protocol before he's cleared to play Sunday against the 49ers. If not, Benny Cunningham will get the start.

Insight: Stacy showed no signs of the minor ankle sprain he suffered last Monday night. He's rushed for 261 yards on 53 carries the last two games and 471 yards on 102 carries since taking over the starting job five games ago. He's a must-start going forward.

Description: Rams coach running back Zac Stacy (ankle) did some individual work Wednesday but still received a did-not-practice designation. SOURCE: Jim Thomas, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Insight: Stacy looked tremendous Monday night against Seattle, gashing a strong Seattle defensive front for 134 yards on 26 carries, but he suffered an ankle sprain in the game and is questionable for Sunday's game against Tennessee. Because Stacy didn't do any 7-on-7 or 11-on-11 work Wednesday, he's listed as a DNP.
 
10/29/2013 5:31:00 PM
Description: Rams running back Zac Stacy has avoided a high-ankle sprain, according to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports.
Insight: Stacy looked tremendous Monday night against Seattle, gashing a strong Seattle defensive front for 134 yards on 26 carries. However, he was on the sidelines late in the fourth as St. Louis was trying to punch in the go-ahead score and Daryl Richardson got stuffed on 3rd down from the 2-yard line. Stacy re-entered on the game's final play, but was sent out wide as a decoy. Consider him day-to-day and questionable for Week 9 against Tennessee.
