St. Louis Rams rookie running back Zac Stacy had a breakout game in the Week 5 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars rushing for 78 yards on 14 carries for a 5.6 yards per carry average. Stacy left the game early with a rib injury but it isn't expected to be serious. Daryl Richardson became the feature back and rushed 13 times for 48 yards in relief. Keep an eye on the injury situation but from all indications the Stacy isn't hurt serious.
Fantasy impact: Stacy was having a nice game before leaving with a rib injury. After the game he said he only had the wind knocked out of him, but keep an eye on the situation. Stacy rushed for 78 yards on 14 carries and will clearly be the feature back going forward if healthy. Daryl Richardson is the number two back in St. Louis, and rushed for 48 yards on 13 carries. If healthy, Stacy will be continue to be the feature back with Richardson the clear number two. Isaiah Pead isn't in the mix at this point if they are both healthy. The Rams do not have a rushing touchdown on the year. The Rams will face the Houston Texans in Week 6 and they have one of the league's worst defenses against the run.
