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 Ram RB Zac Stacy (undisclosed) left practice early Tuesday, Aug. 5.
Fantasy Tip: The team didnít make a big deal over the injury so it doesn't appear to be serious. However, check back in the coming days for more information.
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.
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.
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.
Mon, 26 May 2014 23:24:56 -0700
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.
Fri, 09 May 2014 19:08:09 -0700
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.
Thu, 27 Mar 2014 05:14:21 -0700
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.
Fri, 21 Feb 2014 12:52:17 -0800
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.
Mon, 16 Dec 2013 17:30:11 -0800
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.
Mon, 16 Dec 2013 15:11:45 -0800
St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said RB Zac Stacy (hip) will be dealing with a sore hip this week and likely will not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Fantasy Tip: Stacy's injury doesn't look to be serious, so he should suit up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Consider him a pretty safe RB2 if he's on the field.
Mon, 16 Dec 2013 12:45:04 -0800
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (hip) suffered a hip injury on the first drive in Week 15 against the New Orleans Saints. "I just took a shot ... (the doctors and trainers) fixed it up for me and I went back out there," he said. "I'm a competitor. I want to get back on the field as much as I can to help this team and this organization be successful."
Fantasy Tip: It looks as though Stacy shouldn't have any trouble playing in Week 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He needs to be in your lineup as an RB2.
Sun, 15 Dec 2013 20:07:10 -0800
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy posted 133 rushing yards on 28 carries in the Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints, giving him a total of 854 yards on the season. He has three 100-yard rushing games this season, and he is the third rookie in franchise history with at least 800 rushing yards, joining former RBs Jerome Bettis and Eric Dickerson in the elite club.
Sun, 15 Dec 2013 13:48:38 -0800
Updating an earlier report, St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (back) returned to the Week 15 game.
Sun, 15 Dec 2013 13:36:08 -0800
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (back) left the Week 15 game with an apparent back injury. His status is unknown.
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 00:40:17 -0800
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy enters Week 15 with 721 rushing yards and is in pursuit of a 1,000-yard rushing season, which would make him just the third by a rookie in team history, joining Jerome Bettis in 1993 and Eric Dickerson in 1983. Eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark would require him to perform just beyond his per-game average of 79 yards in his nine starts this season.
Fri, 29 Nov 2013 13:52:31 -0800
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (concussion) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 29, and is listed as probable for Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers. He passed the final hurdle for his concussion tests Friday and has been cleared to play this Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: The matchup against the Niners is a tough one, but if Stacy is playing, he's at least an RB2 or flex play, assuming he isn't limited by a great deal. Benny Cunningham is a weak flex play now that Stacy is expected to suit up.
Thu, 28 Nov 2013 17:08:43 -0800
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 28.
Wed, 27 Nov 2013 16:22:45 -0800
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.
Mon, 25 Nov 2013 17:03:16 -0800
The St. Louis Rams provided no definitive update on RB Zac Stacy (concussion), who suffered a head injury in the Week 12 game against the Chicago Bears. Head coach Jeff Fisher said Monday, Nov. 25, that Stacy, and CB Trumaine Johnson (head) and OG Chris Williams (head), will each be monitored this week before any determination is made on their availability for the Week 13 game against the San Francisco 49ers. "We have a series of things that we do today, tomorrow and Wednesday," Fisher said. "Right now everybody is doing fine."
Fantasy Tip: If Stacy is unable to go in Week 13, Benny Cunningham did a solid job replacing him Sunday, and would be the odds-on favorite to start. He will be a popular pick off the waiver wire. He is worth using as an RB3 or flex play if he indeed gets the starting nod.
Sun, 24 Nov 2013 12:32:07 -0800
The St. Louis Rams have announced that RB Zac Stacy (head) and OG Chris Williams will not return to Week 12's game after both players suffered concussions.
Sun, 24 Nov 2013 12:15:12 -0800
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (head) suffered a possible concussion in Week 12's game against the Chicago Bears. His return is questionable.
Fri, 08 Nov 2013 12:18:36 -0800
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is listed as probable for Week 10.
Fantasy Tip: Stacy should be started in all leagues this week because he is the team's unquestioned starter, but owners should lower exceptions because will be facing a solid Indianapolis Colts defense.
Thu, 07 Nov 2013 14:01:53 -0800
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (foot) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 7.
Fantasy Tip: Stacy expects to play versus the Indianapolis Colts and should be in your lineup as a flex, at worst, this weekend.
Thu, 07 Nov 2013 12:55:43 -0800
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (foot) returned to practice Thursday, Nov. 7.
Wed, 06 Nov 2013 15:05:06 -0800
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (foot) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 6.
Fantasy Tip: Stacy is now firmly on the fantasy football map after having a breakout performance against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 9. The Rams are likely resting him for the weekend, but obviously don't expect numbers like this every week. Clearly, though, he's the bell-cow back for the Rams and is a must-start as an RB2 or 3.
Sun, 03 Nov 2013 09:04:10 -0800
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (ankle) will play in the team's Week 9 game.
Fantasy Tip: Stacy likely will receive most of the carries this week and should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option for fantasy owners.
Fri, 01 Nov 2013 12:07:56 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 1, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to wait until the inactive list to see if he will be on the field for the game. Stacy should be considered a low-end starting running back or flex option if he is able to play. With Daryl Richardson and Benny Cunningham also being questionable, Isaiah Pead could have a bigger role in the offense but should not be in starting lineups this week.
Thu, 31 Oct 2013 17:40:52 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 31.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Stacy will get another start this week because he has been practicing. He should be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option this week.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 20:17:34 -0700
Updating a previous report, St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (foot) was on the practice field Wednesday, Oct. 30, but his work was very limited. Officially, he was listed as having not even practiced, but he did suit up and take the field.
Fantasy Tip: It was a good sign that Stacy was able to do anything, and he still has two full practice days to go until the official injury report comes out. He is sounding like he will be questionable for the upcoming week, but we'll know more Friday. If you normally rely on him for fantasy purposes, it's a good idea to start getting alternates ready just in case.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 15:58:43 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 15:58:08 -0700
St. Louis Rams OT Jake Long (knee), OG Harvey Dahl (knee), RB Zac Stacy (foot), RB Daryl Richardson (foot), C Scott Wells (thigh) and WR Austin Pettis (thigh) all did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 30. QB Kellen Clemens (shoulder) and S Darian Stewart (foot) both were limited. RB Benny Cunningham (ankle) fully participated in practice.
Tue, 29 Oct 2013 10:35:44 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (ankle) is dealing with a low ankle sprain.
Fantasy Tip: Stacy dodged a bullet and should be able to play in Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans unless he suffers a setback in practice this week. Stacy, after a solid game against a tough Seattle Seahawks run defense, is the clear lead back in St. Louis and has become a weekly play.
Tue, 29 Oct 2013 09:32:28 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (ankle) went for X-rays after leaving the game Monday, Oct. 28.
Tue, 29 Oct 2013 09:23:21 -0700
Updating a previous report, St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (ankle) sprained his ankle in the team's Week 8 game Monday, Oct. 28, and he was not on the field for the club's final drive of the night. Stacy went back on the field for the final play of the game and was split out wide instead of being used in the backfield.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how severe Stacy's ankle injury is at this time, so check back for updates. If he's forced to miss Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans, Daryl Richardson would likely see the majority of touches.
Mon, 28 Oct 2013 18:43:29 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (undisclosed) left the Week 8 game against the Seattle Seahawks in the second quarter due to an undisclosed injury. RB Daryl Richardson replaced him in the backfield.
Mon, 28 Oct 2013 16:44:23 -0700
Despite the fact St. Louis Rams RB Benny Cunningham (ankle) is inactive for the Week 8 game against the Seattle Seahawks Monday, Oct. 28, RB Isaiah Pead is still a healthy scratch. RB Zac Stacy will start, with RB Daryl Richardson as the backup. RB Chase Reynolds will serve as the third tailback.
Sun, 20 Oct 2013 18:46:21 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy carried 17 times for 53 yards in the Week 7 game against the Carolina Panthers, and he added four receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: Stacy has 21 total touches to just four touches for Daryl Richardson, and none for any other RBs. The running back picture was somewhat unsettled earlier in the season, but Stacy is the unquestioned starter now. As such, he is a solid low-end RB2 or flex play in most fantasy leagues.
Fri, 18 Oct 2013 13:12:52 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is listed as probable for Week 7.
Fantasy Tip: Stacy likely will be able to play this week and should be considered a flex option for most fantasy owners.
Thu, 17 Oct 2013 16:55:24 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (chest) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 17.
Wed, 16 Oct 2013 14:31:59 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (chest) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 16. It's become common for him to sit out on Wednesdays and then return to a limited practice Thursdays followed by a full practice Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Stacy is the clear-cut lead back in St. Louis now after receiving 18 carries in Week 6. Monitor his status throughout the week, but if he's playing, he's a decent flex filler in most formats.
Sun, 13 Oct 2013 08:59:21 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (ribs) is active for the team's Week 6 game and is expected to start.
Fantasy Tip: Stacy likely will receive a majority of the carries during the game and should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option for owners this week.
Fri, 11 Oct 2013 16:21:18 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (ribs) looked good in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is expected to be able to play in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
Fantasy Tip: Stacy is the "lead" back for the Rams for the second straight week, but Jeff Fisher will likely keep Daryl Richardson and maybe Isaiah Pead involved somehow. St. Louis' offense hasn't been consistent enough to get excited about Stacy. He's a flex play in deeper leagues.
Fri, 11 Oct 2013 13:14:12 -0700
St. Louis Rams OT Rodger Saffold (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is questionable for Week 6. RB Zac Stacy (chest) fully practiced and is questionable. DE William Hayes (knee) did not practice and is questionable.
Wed, 09 Oct 2013 13:43:57 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (chest) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 9. Stacy missed the end of the Week 5 game with what the team was calling a rib injury, but Stacy said he felt like he had the wind knocked out of him and that he'd be fine for Week 6. "He took the day off," head coach Jeff Fisher said. "He's a little sore after that outing, but he'll be fine."
Fantasy Tip: Stacy should be fine to start against the Houston Texans this weekend. Expect him to get the majority of the workload again, and he can be seen as an RB3 or flex play.
Mon, 07 Oct 2013 15:04:41 -0700
St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said RB Zac Stacy will start at running back Week 6. Fisher said Stacy earned another start with his play Week 5.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should look to acquire Stacy if he is available in their leagues because he will get at least one more start. He should be considered a No. 3 running back or a flex option for Week 6.
Sun, 06 Oct 2013 19:24:23 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy made the start in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he carried 14 times for 78 yards. He was also targeted once, but did not have any receptions. Stacy split carried with RB Daryl Richardson, who ran 13 times for just 48 yards, and he too was targeted once with no receptions.
Fantasy Tip: It appears to be a timeshare in St. Louis between Stacy and Richardson, and it appears Stacy has a little more potential. Both should only be considered as RB3s or flex plays going forward.
Sun, 06 Oct 2013 07:29:08 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy will get the start at running back in the team's Week 5 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fantasy Tip: If you can get Stacy on your roster, it may not be a bad idea. If he has a nice day, he could be an option moving forward.
Thu, 03 Oct 2013 09:33:06 -0700
St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said the team will probably go with a committee approach at running back in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and RB Zac Stacy could receive his chance after RBs Daryl Richardson, Isaiah Pead and Benny Cunningham haven't been very productive. "I think Zac's done a really good job since he's been here," QB Sam Bradford said. "He's a very talented runner. He's a powerful guy. He's got great vision. He makes cuts in the hole that are quick and decisive, so I'm excited to see him out there." Stacy has only one carry for four yards on the season against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1. He was inactive in Weeks 2 and 3. The rest of the team's running backs haven't been good in pass protection through four weeks, and although he hasn't proven himself in the NFL yet, Stacy had a reputation as a good pass blocker coming out of college.
Fantasy Tip: Many expect Cunningham to be the next man up in the Rams backfield, but it could easily be Stacy, as well. He's the cheaper option off the waiver wire this week. It wouldn't hurt to stash him and see how this plays out this weekend.
Wed, 02 Oct 2013 16:04:51 -0700
St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher wouldn't say who would be the starting running back this weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars after RB Daryl Richardson hinted that he wouldn't be starting in Week 5. The Rams are currently last in the league in rushing, averaging just over 47 yards per game. Richardson is averaging a measly 2.7 yards per carry. "We have just had one day of practice and all the backs got to participate in practice, so we've got different things for different style of runners," Fisher said.
Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for fantasy purposes, we may not know much about the running back rotation against the Jacksonville Jaguars until the game is actually played. This makes Richardson, Isaiah Pead, Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham all very tough to start. It may be best to stay away from the situation until we get a better feel for it.
