Zac Stacy: Tied for AAF rushing lead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stacy has taken 31 carries for 159 yards and a touchdown through two games with the Memphis Express in the Alliance of American Football.

Stacy announced his retirement from the NFL in February 2017 after he was unable to make it back from an ankle fracture he'd suffered in November 2015. Finally back to full strength, the 27-year-old presumably hopes to use the AAF as a springboard back to the NFL, where he once ran for 973 yards and seven touchdowns as a rookie fifth-round pick with the Rams in 2013. It looks like Stacy could earn a spot on a preseason roster if he emerges from the AAF campaign relatively unscathed.

Zac Stacy: Announces retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stacy has announced his retirement from the NFL.

Stacy made waves during his rookie season with the Rams, when he totaled over 1,000 yards and scored eight times in 14 appearances. While that success saw his fantasy stock peak ahead of the 2014 campaign, Stacy responded with just 293 rushing yards and one touchdown as a sophomore. After that disappointment, the Rams traded him to the Jets, for whom Stacy only played eight games before fracturing his ankle. That injury prevented Stacy from suiting up again, and has led the former fifth-rounder to now call time on his short-lived career.

Zac Stacy: Waived by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets have waived Stacy (ankle), after he failed his physical with the team, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Rapoport notes that the Jets needed the roster spot at this stage, but could bring Stacy back once he is fully recovered from a fractured ankle that required offseason surgery. The team plans to sign Bernard Pierce for backfield depth with Khiry Robinson (leg) still recovering from injury.

Jets' Zac Stacy: Should return for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stacy (ankle) is not expected to participate in spring practices but should be ready for training camp. NJ.com reports.

Stacy broke his ankle in mid-November and will have to battle Khiry Robinson for the No. 3 running back spot in training camp, with Matt Forte and Bilal Powell comfortably in the Top 2 spots on the depth chart. Given his situation even when healthy, it's tough to see Stacy making a meaningful fantasy contribution this season if Forte and Powell stay healthy.

Jets' Zac Stacy: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stacy was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

This move was considered a formality as Stacy was expected to miss the rest of the season after fracturing his ankle during last Thursday's game against the Bills. Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley will likely see a few extra opportunities out of the backfield with Stacy now out, but unless starting running back Chris Ivory goes down with an injury, neither should be expected to be a reliable fantasy contributor.

Jets' Zac Stacy: Diagnosed with fractured ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stacy suffered a fractured ankle during Thursday's loss to the Bills, Seth Walder of the NY Daily News reports.

Stacy will presumably miss the rest of the season, but his absence shouldn't have much impact on the Jets' running back usage unless Bilal Powell (ankle) still isn't ready for Week 11. The Jets used Chris Ivory on passing downs after Stacy left Thursday's game, and while the veteran bruiser is a perfectly capable pass-catcher, he's already getting all the work he can handle on the ground. If Powell isn't ready for Week 11, the Jets will likely sign another running back, preferably one with solid blocking and receiving skills.

Jets' Zac Stacy: Ruled out for rest of night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stacy was ruled out for the rest of Thursday's game against the Bills due to an ankle injury, the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports.

Stacy had to be carted off the field after his leg was pinned underneath his body at the end of the first half. It had the look of a serious injury, and with Bilal Powell (ankle) still sidelined, the Jets are using Chris Ivory on passing downs, with Stevan Ridley serving as the top backup.

Jets' Zac Stacy: Carted off field before halftime
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stacy was carted off the field with an apparent leg injury right before halftime of Thursday's game against the Bills, Chris Brown of the Bills' official website reports.

Stacy got his leg pinned underneath him while returning a kickoff on the final play of the first half. He was down on the field for a few minutes before being carted off to the locker room. With Stacy presumably out for the rest of the game, Stevan Ridley will be the lone running back behind Chris Ivory, who could now see more snaps on passing downs.

Jets' Zac Stacy: Posts 19 combined yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stacy carried the ball one time for three yards and caught one of his three pass targets for 16 yards Sunday against the Jaguars.

Although Chris Ivory ran for only 1.1 yards per carry in this game, Stacy rarely saw the field. despite his lack of usage, his single carry was more than Stevan Ridley had, indicating that Stacy is still second on the team's depth chart at running back. However, after seeing a season-high high 13 rushing attempts in Week 6, he's only seen 11 carries in the three games since.

Jets' Zac Stacy: Just four touches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stacy ran three times for 11 yards and caught his lone target for seven yards in Sunday's loss to Oakland.

Chris Ivory (hamstring) wasn't very productive Sunday, but he was healthy enough to garner 18 touches, limiting Stacy's workload. Until Bilal Powell (ankle) returns, Stacy should play on some third downs and serve as a change-of-pace to Ivory.

Jets' Zac Stacy: Accounts for 30 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stacy rushed seven times for 19 yards and caught his only target for 11 receiving yards Sunday against the Patriots.

Running back Chris Ivory tweaked his hamstring on his first carry but Stacy didn't play nearly well enough to allow the Jets to rest Ivory the rest of the game. Ivory finished with 41 rushing yards on 17 carries, though it's unclear if the Jets will consider sitting him in Week 8 against the Raiders. If they do, Stacy could get the start, though Stevan Ridley could also play a role if he's activated from the PUP list after recovering from a knee injury. Bilal Powell is also an option, though he was held out Sunday with an ankle injury.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Unable to practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jets backup running back Bilal Powell (ankle) is not practicing Thursday, per Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.

Powell appeared to be "walking gingerly" Thursday, which suggests that he is trending in the wrong direction as the Sunday game against the Patriots approaches. If Powell is ruled out or ends up limited this weekend, look for Zac Stacy to see added complementary duties behind top back Chris Ivory.

Jets' Zac Stacy: 61 total yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stacy rushed 13 times for 46 yards and caught two passes on two targets for 15 receiving yards Sunday against Washington.

Stacy got a big increase in touches after Bilal Powell left the game with an ankle injury, but the Jets' backfield still belongs to Chris Ivory, who rushed 20 times for 146 yards and a touchdown and also added 50 receiving yards. The severity of Powell's injury hasn't been determined, but neither he nor Stacy figure to make a major impact in Week 7 against the Patriots as long as Ivory is healthy.

Jets running back Zac Stacy carried the ball five times for 7 yards and scored a touchdown while catching two passes for an additional 18 yards Sunday against the Dolphins.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jets running back Zac Stacy carried the ball five times for 7 yards scored and a touchdown while catching two passes for an additional 18 yards Sunday against the Dolphins.

Stacy came into the game after Bilal Powell left the game with a groin injury. Even though Chris Ivory was shredding the Dolphins defense on the ground, Stacy struggled to gain yardage on his rushing attempts, but he was able to vulture a short touchdown run from Ivory.

Jets RB Zac Stacy receives two carries in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jets running back Zac Stacy carried two times for three yards and caught two passes for negative two yards Sunday against Philadelphia. 

With Chris Ivory active, but sitting the game out, it was a surprise how little Stacy was involved. However, the Jets fell behind early, making receiving specialist Bilal Powell a bigger part of the offense than usual. Based on usage, Stacy is a distant third on the depth chart at RB.

Disgruntled RB Zac Stacy shipped from Rams to Jets
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Disenchanted running back Zac Stacy has been traded from the Rams to the Jets, a source has told ESPN. Details have yet to be revealed, though the return on the deal is considered to be minimal.

The last straw for Stacy was the first-round draft of Todd Gurley. Stacy had fallen behind Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham on the depth chart a year ago. After starting 12 games and rushing for 973 yards in 2013, he started five games and rushed for 293 yards last season.

The Jets have struggled to find a featured back in recent years. Chris Ivory led the team with 821 yards in 2014.

Report: Jets show interest in disgruntled Rams RB Zac Stacy
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Jets have inquired about disgruntled Rams running back Zac Stacy, but have yet to make a formal trade offer, the New York Daily News reports.

Stacy fell behind Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham last season, and when the Rams selected Todd Gurley in first round of the draft, he made a public demand to leave St. Louis via trade and release. Stacy met with the Rams on Friday.

Stacy rushed for 973 yards and seven touchdowns on 250 carries in his rookie season in 2013 but managed just 293 yards and one touchdown on 76 carries last season while making just five starts.

Report: Rams meet with Zac Stacy, trade still possible
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Rams met with RB Zac Stacy on Friday, following his demand to be traded or released.

Stacy made the public trade demand after the Rams selected RB Todd Gurley in Thursday's first round.  

Appearing on the NFL Network, Ian Rapoport said that the Rams would be "more than happy" to deal Stacy. However, later in the day, Friday, the team met with Stacy's representatives, according to a report by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The two sides had a positive discussion, but there was no decision made on Stacy's future with the team.

Report: Rams' Zac Stacy to request trade or release
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rams running back Zac Stacy plans to request that the team release or trade him after the selection of running back Todd Gurley with the No. 10 pick, ESPN reports.

Stacy had already fallen behind Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham last season, so the Rams may be looking to move on from the runner even without his displeasure at the pick. He rused for 973 yards and seven touchdowns on 250 carries in his rookie season in 2013 but managed just 293 yards and one touchdown on 76 carries last season while making just five starts.
