"We’ve got three outstanding runners," Fisher said, referring to Stacy,
Fisher noted Stacy missed practice time the past couple weeks due to calf and ankle injuries.
"The good thing about this is he’ll come back and should be 100 percent this week and just see where it goes," Fisher said.
The Rams visit the Chiefs in Week 8.
Cunningham was still involved in the passing game. In fact, he was the Rams' leading receiver with 46 yards on five catches, scoring a touchdown on one of them. But he carried the ball only two times for 3 yards.
Stacy, meanwhile, played only one snap and didn't get a single touch. It's possible the Rams were saving him with his ankle at less than 100 percent, but considering he practiced in full Friday, I doubt it. As the team's intended starter at running back, he never ran for more than 71 yards in any of his first five games, so Mason already has him beat.
Maybe you hold on to Stacy if you're the extra cautious type, but Mason looks like the Rams running back to own right now, with Cunningham also having some low-end appeal in points-per-reception leagues.
He also had a 75-yard kickoff return. Cunningham visits the Chiefs in Week 8.
In Monday's loss to the 49ers, Fisher added, "we were rolling all three of them."
Mason's 24-yard burst up the middle was the team's first run of at least 20 yards this season. "I liked the way he handled his first opportunity and made some explosive plays," Fisher said of the third-round pick, who was active for the first time this season.
Of course, the
Hoping to make sense of it? Good luck. The Rams' backfield is becoming a mess on par with the Saints' -- except in this case, you can't be completely sure any of the players are actually good.
I can say that Stacy didn't get a single touch after the 49ers took the lead in the second quarter, so the Rams may not think he's as suited for comeback mode as Cunningham. The problem is they don't figure to be leading many games.
I'm not ready to cut Stacy yet, but he's looking like a sit in Fantasy. Cunningham might be the preferred start, but he's a low-end one at that. Mason, the change-of-pace guy, can remain on waivers for now.
