Rams | Tre Mason could be top RB option

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 12:08:10 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason could be the top candidate for a majority of carries since he is averaging 5.4 yards per carry. Mason rushed for 85 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries in Week 7 and received most of the carries because he had the hot hand, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. RB Zac Stacy was announced the starter for Week 7 but only played one snap. RB Benny Cunningham only rushed for three yards during the game. Stacy is averaging 3.93 yards per carry this season, while Cunningham is averaging 3.78 yards per carry.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Mason probably will receive most of the work at running back for the time being. Mason costs $4,900 on FantasyScore and could be a nice flex option for owners.

Rams | Zac Stacy nearly non-existent

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 14:01:46 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy did not have any touches in the Week 7 game against the Seattle Seahawks. The Rams used a combination of RBs Tre Mason, who had 85 rushing yards and a touchdown, and Benny Cunningham, who led the team with 46 receiving yards and a score.

Fantasy Tip: Stacy actually played just one total snap into the third quarter, and clearly has fallen out of favor in St. Louis. He is worth keeping on a roster in yearly leagues, but FantasyScore won't want to go near him going forward.

Rams | Tre Mason makes most of chance

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 21:34:43 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason was active last week for the first time all season, and he played nine snaps with six touches. He finished with five carries for 40 yards and a reception for 12 yards. He was active for the first time because RB Chase Reynolds (hip) was inactive due to injury. Mason is expected to join RBs Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham in a running-back-by-committee approach. "Well, early in the game we try to get guys multiple touches," offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said Friday, Oct. 17. "That's part of the deal. Then we try to go with the hot hand late in the game. Most places that I've been that have really good running games, they had the people to spread the ball around."

Fantasy Tip: Mason isn't quite ready for FantasyScore usage just yet, even at a tempting $3,000 salary (or 6.0 percent of the cap). He won't see nearly enough touches. However, monitor the situation, and if he sees an increase over his six touches in Week 6, he might be worth using down the road. Stacy $5,400 (or 10.8 percent of the cap) is probably the best fantasy bet, but he is a bit overpriced considering how crowded the backfield is.

Rams | Zac Stacy listed as probable

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 14:00:54 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and is listed as probable.

Fantasy Tip: Stacy has been sharing carries with other running backs and probably will continue to do so in Week 7. Stacy costs $5,400 on FantasyScore, which may be too expensive for some owners.

Rams | Zac Stacy practices in full

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 18:17:36 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Stacy struggled against the run defense of the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6, managing just 17 yards on eight carries. He faces another tough matchup in Week 7 with the Seattle Seahawks coming to town. Stacy's $5,400 salary (10.8 percent of cap) at FantasyScore won't break the bank, but it is still hard to justify using him given the matchup.

Rams | No practice for Zac Stacy

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 16:51:51 -0700

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Stacy ($5,400; 10.8 percent of cap) is not an attractive play in FantasyScore, as he is apparently not 100 percent, and he is in a three-man rotation with Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham. Avoid him for now until he re-establishes himself as the bona fide No. 1 option in the St. Louis backfield.

Rams | Zac Stacy healthy

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 06:23:26 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (calf) had no injury issues in Week 6 when the team decided to use a three-man rotation at running back, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

Fantasy Tip: Stacy ($5,400; 10.8% of your cap) hasn't approached 100 yards in a game, and his stock is falling considerably. However, he is the type of runner that can give the Seattle Seahawks fits and wear them down. Stacy's breakout game came against them last season when he rushed 26 times for 134 yards. He's a risky RB2 on FantasyScore this week.

Rams | St. Louis could stick with RB rotation

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 16:24:59 -0700

St. Louis Rams RBs Zac Stacy, Benny Cunningham and Tre Mason may continue to head a three-man rotation in the backfield, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

Fantasy Tip: Stacy is still the running back to own in St. Louis, but his value is quickly dwindling. Keep an eye on how much playing time he sees in the coming weeks.

Rams | Zac Stacy active against Niners

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 16:14:45 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (calf) and WR Kenny Britt (knee) are both active for the team's Week 6 game against the San Francisco 49ers Monday, Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Stacy wasn't an attractive option at FantasyScore this week because of his injury status in a Monday night game. The Rams could have Benny Cunningham share much of the workload with him.

Rams | Zac Stacy probable

Sat, 11 Oct 2014 14:34:55 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy (calf) is probable for Week 6 Monday, Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Stacy ($5,400; 10.8% of your cap) is at a great price on FantasyScore, but he has a tough matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. You could do worse if you're bargain shopping at RB2.
