Rams | Expected to use committee backfield
Wed, 12 Jun 2013 15:38:33 -0700
St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said the team is expected to use a committee approach in the backfield this year between Daryl Richardson, Isaiah Pead and Zac Stacy. The overall youth in the backfield is a concern in terms of pass protection. Stacy caught the ball well during a practice session Tuesday, June 11.
If Stacy can round out the blocking aspect of his game, he's most ready to step in as the lead back. There's an outside chance he could become this year's Alfred Morris, at least relatively, among the fantasy rookies. Richardson and Pead are still worth middle-round speculation, as well, but this could be a messy arrangement in the early going.
