Rams | Rams to ride hot hand at RB?

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 11:08:13 -0700

St. Louis Rams general manager Les Snead said he expects the team to ride the "hot hand" any given week at running back, according to a source. As a result, RB Benny Cunningham could cut into RB Zac Stacy's workload immediately in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings. Stacy had 250 carries in just 12 starts last year and was among the league leaders in carries per game. Cunningham had just 47 carries last year, but he impressed the team in training camp and the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: We warned folks not to overvalue Stacy's work last year too much in drafts leading up to the 2014 season. This week against the Vikes, Stacy ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) isn't a wise FantasyScore investment, and it may be tough to find the right time to start him moving forward if Cunningham cuts into his workload significantly. Look to pick up Cunningham at a low investment in standard leagues if you're already searching for running back depth.

Rams | Benny Cunningham may get snaps

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 09:43:14 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Benny Cunningham has been the team's best running back during the preseason and could push RB Zac Stacy for playing time this season.

Fantasy Tip: Stacy likely will enter the season as the starter, but Cunningham could get some carries during games. Owners should only consider Cunningham has a handcuff to Stacy in deeper leagues. Tre Mason probably has the most value among the team's backup running backs.

Rams | Sam Bradford out for season

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 13:10:07 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is out for the season after an MRI revealed a torn left anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Zac Stacy will be relied upon even heavier with Shaun Hill as the quarterback. Stacy is a low-end RB2. Tavon Austin's stock could take a slight hit, but he remains a solid WR4. Kenny Britt is still worth a late-round flier as a WR5.

Rams | Zac Stacy does not start

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 09:30:08 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy did not start in the third preseason game, because the team wanted to see what RB Benny Cunningham would do with the first-team offense, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Fisher said the team knows what Stacy can do with the starting offense.

Fantasy Tip: Stacy likely will be the starting running back this season and get a majority of the carries. Stacy probably will be a weekly flex option in most leagues.

Rams | Tre Mason struggling with pass protection

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 10:20:02 -0700

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.

Rams | Tre Mason works with first-team

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 19:21:13 -0700

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.

Rams | RB competition being pushed by OC

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 11:16:26 -0700

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.

Rams | Zac Stacy focused on pass protection

Wed, 11 Jun 2014 11:19:03 -0700

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.
