The Rams offensive woes are well-documented. Fortunately for them, the Jaguars are coming to town. Jeff Fisher's promised change on that side of the ball and will reportedly provide it, specifically at running back.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Zac Stacy will start at running back for the Rams on Sunday when Jacksonville comes to town. (I'll wait while you go make an add/drop in fantasy.)

(Back? OK, good.)

The Rams' rushing attack has been pathetic this season. They're averaging 2.6 yards per carry (31st in the NFL) on 73 carries (30th) for 189 yards (32nd) through four games. That's embarrassingly bad.

A lot of the fault likes with the offensive line, but Daryl Richardson can't get it going, Isaiah Pead keeps finding himself in the dog house and is averaging just three yards per carry and Benny Cunningham wasn't exactly lighting it up in relief last week.

Stacy's had just one carry so far this season (for four yards) but stands a very good chance of breaking out in Week 5.

The Jags are giving up 5.2 yards per carry to opposing teams and if the Rams can put up any points on the board early, Stacy could see a pile of carries. Don't be surprised if Pead is prominently involved in the running game as well this week.
