Zac Stacy could find success through the air
by Chris Towers |

Rams running back Zac Stacy is looking for his big breakout performance, and could have a chance to find it in Week 5 against the Eagles.

The Eagles have struggled mightily against opposing running backs this season, allowing 21.0 Fantasy points per game. That number is even higher since going up against the hapless Jaguars in Week 1, as the team's last three opponents have all put up 24-plus points against the Eagles out of the backfield.

The Eagles have actually held their own in the running game, with opposing backs averaging just 3.7 yards per carry. However, they have struggled to keep track of backs in the passing game, where they have allowed four touchdowns over the last three games. Stacy has not made a big impact as a receiver, but this could be his best chance to do so, especially if the Rams end up in a shootout.

Stacy has been splitting work more than we expected, but he should get a healthy role in Week 5. Keep him active.

Rams backfield share giving Fantasy owners headaches
by Chris Towers |

The Rams put a scare into Fantasy owner's hearts when Benny Cunningham got the start in the third preseason warmup game, but coaches were quick to stand by Zac Stacy as the team's lead back. After three games, the numbers back that up, but Stacy's hold on the role is clearly more tenuous than we might have thought even a month ago.

For the second time in three games, Stacy basically split the workload with Cunningham in Week 3. Stacy and Cunningham both played 34 of the team's 76, similar to Week 1, when Cunningham actually played one more snap. The overall season workload is skewed in Stacy's favor thanks to a 40-18 split in Week 2, but it's pretty clear these two are in a timeshare.

Stacy has been able to hold off Cunningham by just flat outworking him so far, averaging 4.3 yards per carry to Cunningham's 3.3. Stacy has also been more effective in the passing game, though it is concerning that Cunningham is still encroaching on his playing time with those edges.

At this point, both players need to be owned in all Fantasy leagues, as long as the team splits their time so evenly. However, until Stacy either pushed Cunningham out of the picture or abdicates the role, neither will be a particularly reliable Fantasy option.

Zac Stacy totals 121 yards in Week 3 loss vs. Cowboys
by R.J. White |

Rams running back Zac Stacy gained 67 yards on 12 carries and another 54 yards while catching five of his six targets in his team's 34-31 loss to the Cowboys in Week 3.

Though the Rams jumped out to a huge lead in the first half, they decided to put the game in Austin Davis' hands, with the quarterback throwing 42 times and Stacy receiving just 12 of the team's 30 rush attempts. After failing to average four yards per carry in either of his firs two games, Stacy averaged 5.6 yards per carry Sunday while also getting the job done through the air after recording only one reception in his first two games. Stacy and the Rams get next week off before heading to Philadelphia to face the Eagles in Week 5.

Zac Stacy a strong start again
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Zac Stacy we know and love showed up in Week 2 at Tampa Bay when he had 19 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown (with a lost fumble).

By comparison, Benny Cunningham had just six carries for 15 yards and one catch for 4 yards. Prior to Week 1 against Minnesota, Stacy had been stellar at home with double digits in Fantasy points in five of the first six games he started in St. Louis.

The Cowboys have yet to be exposed with their run defense, and they only allowed a touchdown to Carlos Hyde in Week 1. Stacy should get his usual volume of work to make him worth starting in the majority of leagues.

Zac Stacy scores first touchdown in win over Tampa Bay
by Igor Mello |

Rams running back Zac Stacy received the bulk of the carries and scored his first touchdown of the season Week 2 against Tampa Bay.

Stacy ripped a 7-yard run on his first touch of the afternoon. He took six handoffs for 23 yards on the opening drive, which was capped off by a 1-yard touchdown run. He lost a fumble in the third quarter, which resulted in a Tampa Bay touchdown. Stacy finished the game with 19 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown, averaging 3.7 yards per attempt in a 19-17 victory. He was not targeted in the passing game.

Stacy has 30 carries for 114 yards and a touchdown on the ground through two games. He will look to stay productive at home against the Cowboys in Week 3.
