Jets | Chris Ivory leads backfield

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:35:43 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory is listed as the starting running back entering training camp, according to beat writer Rich Cimini's unofficial depth chart. RB Bilal Powell is the primary backup, and RB Zac Stacy is listed as the third running back. RB Stevan Ridley (knee) could figure in eventually, but he's expected to be limited at the start of camp.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory established himself in a muddy backfield that was expected to be led by Chris Johnson last year. Ivory has competition again this year, but he's a solid RB2 and takes a hit in PPR formats. Powell is a decent RB4 in PPR formats. It's hard to draft Stacy right now unless Powell and Ridley slip up.

Jets | Running back situation up in the air

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:51:04 -0700

New York Jets coach Todd Bowles said his team's running back situation may take until the preseason to sort out. RBs Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Zac Stacy, Stevan Ridley and Daryl Richardson all have experience at the position, but no one has broken out yet.

Fantasy Tip: Bowles said the team could keep as many as four backs, but it begs the question of which one to start. For now, this situation is too volatile, but be prepared to move one up your draft board if someone looks explosive in preseason games.

Jets | NYJ to run more in 2015?

Tue, 19 May 2015 11:14:45 -0700

New York Jets RBs Chris Ivory, Stevan Ridley, Zac Stacy and others could be busy this season, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said the reason he hired offensive coordinator Chan Gailey is because he has a track record of being able to run the ball, at least in his college coaching days. Bowles supposedly prefers a balanced, ball-control offense, which puts more of the onus on the running backs.

Fantasy Tip: Again, Ivory should see the majority of work out the backfield, but this figures to be more of a committee approach with how deep the Jets are in the backfield. Ivory could end up in RB3 territory while the rest of the running backs currently shouldn't be seen as more than flex options.

Rams | Zac Stacy traded to Jets

Sat, 02 May 2015 14:27:05 -0700

Former St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy has been traded to the New York Jets in exchange for the Jets' 224 overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Todd Gurley gains value with Tre Mason, Benny Cunningham and Isaiah Pead also in the mix. Gurley should receive plenty of opportunities to run away with the starting role, although Mason is coming off a respectable rookie campaign and should still be involved in the offense. If he can maintain good health, Gurley has RB2 potential.

Jets | Zac Stacy acquired by Jets

Sat, 02 May 2015 14:23:49 -0700

Former St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy has been acquired by the New York Jets in exchange for the Rams' 224th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets' backfield is officially crowded with Stacy, Chris Ivory, Stevan Ridley and Bilal Powell. New York seems to be content with the ultimate committee approach. It's unclear at this point who will be the official starter, but no one in this backfield should be considered more than a RB3 unless something changes.

Jets | New York interested in Zac Stacy?

Sat, 02 May 2015 11:34:02 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy may be drawing interest from the New York Jets. The Jets have reportedly asked the Rams about Stacy, who now seems to be on bad terms with St. Louis after RB Todd Gurley was selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: It would be a pretty crowded backfield if Stacy landed with the Jets, who acquired Stevan Ridley this offseason in addition to already having Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell on the roster. A Stacy traded would seemingly water down the fantasy value of all running backs involved.

Rams | STL talks with Zac Stacy's reps

Fri, 01 May 2015 11:08:40 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy's representatives had a productive discussion with the team, but there is no decision on Stacy's future with the team.

Fantasy Tip: The Rams selected Todd Gurley in the first round, which makes Stacy's role with the team uncertain. Stacy would have more fantasy value if he is released or traded since he likely would have a bigger role with his new team. He probably would be a handcuff to Gurley in drafts if he remains with the Rams.

Rams | Zac Stacy wants out

Fri, 01 May 2015 05:10:21 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy has asked the team for a trade or to be released after the team selected RB Todd Gurley in the first round of the NFL Draft, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Stacy had a solid showing out of nowhere in 2013 and disappeared in '14. He's an RB5 flyer if he lands with another team.

Rams | Zac Stacy likely No. 2

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 05:28:03 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy will likely be the backup to RB Tre Mason in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Stacy barely saw the field after Mason took over. He's different than a prototypical No. 2, because Benny Cunningham will be the change-of-pace back on third downs. So Stacy won't see the field much, and his fantasy value is very minimal behind Mason.

Rams | Isaiah Pead could be dumped by Rams

Sun, 08 Feb 2015 17:18:29 -0800

The St. Louis Rams might consider releasing RB Isaiah Pead this offseason. The move would create just under $941,000 of additional cap space. The club has RBs Tre Mason, Benny Cunningham, Zac Stacy and Trey Watts on the roster, and Pead hasn't had much impact since being drafted in the second round in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Pead has been a huge disappointment, and he is well buried on the depth chart. He could latch on with another organization if released, but he has a long way to go to climb back into the fantasy picture.
