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.

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.
Stacy gave way to Benny Cunningham on one first-half drive and entered halftime with only four carries under his belt despite the Rams being within one score up until right before halftime. It was a questionable gameplan offensively after most expected the Rams to lean on the running game with starting quarterback Sam Bradford out for the season. Stacy will hope for better results when the team faces the Buccaneers in Week 2.
Stacy went first during warmups and is expected to start in Sunday's game against the Vikings, but Cunningham could see a significant amount of touches as well as the team focuses on running the ball when on offense.
