St. Louis Rams running back Zac Stacy carried the ball 26 times for 62 yards and a touchdown in the team's 38-8 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Stacy also caught a pair of passes for six yards in the game.
Fantasy impact: Although his yards per carry average and yards per reception average will hardly stand out on a box score, Stacy was used a lot against the Colts.
The Rams have relied heavily on their running game since turning to Kellen Clemens at quarterback. The change in philosophy has to be a surprise to fantasy owners after the team didn't have any kind of production coming out of the backfield with Daryl Richardson or Isiah Pead carrying the football.
Stacy could afford to just pound away at the Colts considering that Tavon Austin scored three times and the Rams as a team got all of their 38 points without giving up any.
Stacy is now a clear-cut starting running back particularly in deeper fantasy leagues as it seems he'll be used a lot by the Rams no matter what situation the team finds itself in.
