St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason still has to work on becoming a better pass blocker after he allowed two sacks in the second preseason game, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. "Yeah, I think that's one of the biggest challenges for the position," Fisher said. "To learn how to play without the football. Guys have run skills, can carry the ball and run, and do those kind of things. But it's playing without the football. It's protection. Tre needs to keep working on it."
Fantasy Tip: Zac Stacy likely will enter the season as the starting running back, but Mason has a chance to take over the job at some point during the season. Mason likely will be taken in the later rounds of fantasy drafts but has the potential to become a starter for an owner. Mason could also be a handcuff to Stacy during drafts.

St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason saw received some snaps with the first-team Tuesday, July 29, with RB Zac Stacy receiving a majority of the work with the first-team.
Fantasy Tip: Mason could end being a nice change-of-pace back for the Rams, but Stacy is set to receive a bulk of the carries. Consider Stacy a solid RB2 this season.

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy isn't officially the team's starting running back. Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer reiterated that RBs Benny Cunningham, Tre Mason and Isaiah Pead will all compete with Stacy for starter status. Schottenheimer added that each running back has a different skill set that will be used "throughout the course of the year."
Fantasy Tip: It's still too early to make too much out of the St. Louis running back situation, but it's still not good news for Stacy. While Stacy may still get most of the playing time, he probably won't be called on as much as he was last season. Still, he's a solid RB2 option in standard leagues. If we were to choose a St. Louis running back to bet on other than Stacy, it would probably be Mason.

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy is focusing on pass protection this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: If Stacy can improve his pass protection, heíll likely get more playing time. That being said, he still has competition, mainly coming from rookie Tre Mason. Right now, consider Stacy a high-end RB2 in standard leagues.

The St. Louis Rams will likely use RBs Zac Stacy, Benny Cunningham and Tre Mason in the first three slots on the depth chart. In the fourth spot it could be a competition between RBs Isaiah Pead, Chase Reynolds, Kadeem Jones and Trey Watts.

The St. Louis Rams selected Auburn RB Tre Mason with the 75th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Fantasy Tip: Mason will be a change-up option to lead back Zac Stacy. He'll essentially be the next Isaiah Pead and have occasional but limited fantasy use unless Stacy misses time. Mason also has wrist troubles of his own to worry about.

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher hinted that RB Zac Stacy could be the team's lead back. "I think over time, he'll probably be that 70-percent of the carries guy," Fisher said.
Fantasy Tip: Stacy has a lot of uncertainty around him, but he has some upside as an RB3. He doesn't have a lot in the form of competition as well.

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy is expected to get more carries in 2014, according to general manager Les Snead. "He should be more productive because he should have more carries," Snead said.
Fantasy Tip: Fantastic news for Stacy's fantasy owners. Stacy should have more value and probably needs to be moved up on running back draft lists heading into the offseason.

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher wasn't ready to commit to RB Zac Stacy long term just yet, but he is happy with Stacy and the group of running backs as a whole. "I think we've got a good group of backs. We'll discuss needs when the season's over, but I think based on what we've seen in the production from that position I think we have a good group of running backs for the future," Fisher said Monday, Dec. 16.
