Zac Stacy not the Rams' guaranteed starter?!
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said Tuesday that there was going to be competition for the starting running back job this summer, a surprise after Zac Stacy ran for 973 yards, caught 26 passes for 141 yards and totaled eight touchdowns in effectively 12 games. 

"We're just going to let them all roll and see what happens," Schottenheimer said. "Zac's obviously a really, really good player, but we're going to create competition for all the guys. That's a long way off, but we know we have a good stable group of backs and they all have different skill sets, which we'll try to use throughout the course of the year."

Schottenheimer later clarified that everyone on offense will compete for their jobs, including Sam Bradford at quarterback. But that "I expect to see multiple guys carry the football."

Zac Stacy could get more work in 2014
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Rams general manager Les Snead said Friday that running back Zac Stacy should be in line for more work in 2014, reports

"I think he should be more productive because he'll have more carries," Snead said. "When we drafted him, he's got nice patience, a nice vision, and if you really analyze running backs, a lot of those guys are the most successful. Because of those traits, it makes you think he can keep continue doing it."

Stacy started 12 games in 2013 and had 250 carries for 973 yards and seven touchdowns, and he added 26 catches for 141 yards and a touchdown.

Zac Stacy a 'strong, reliable centerpiece' for Rams
by Larry Hartstein |

Rams rookie running back Zac Stacy got his first start Week 5 and never looked back, proving to be a "strong, reliable centerpiece for an offense that was at its best when Stacy was at its best," reports

"I was given the opportunity and I pretty much just took advantage of it every week," Stacy said. "There’s really no secret sauce to what I’m doing. It all started up front with the offensive line and just being a pro about yourself. Staying an extra hour watching tape, staying an extra hour working on your footwork and craft and stuff like that.

"That’s one thing I’ve taken from guys like Chris Long, James Laurinaitis. One thing they told me is just be a true pro about yourself. Eat right, take care of your body. Little things like that." 

Stacy, who finished with 973 rushing yards and eight total touchdowns, appears to have done enough to go into 2014 as the starter, the report said. He said he plans to get a better grasp of the playbook, including pass protection, and get faster and stronger entering next season.
