Zac Stacy practices Tuesday, is fantasy must-start against Bears, barring setback

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

St. Louis Rams running back Zac Stacy was at practice on Tuesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams running back Zac Stacy practiced with the team on Tuesday despite an ankle injury, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Stacy sustained an ankle injury in a Week 8 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, and aggravated it the following week against the Tennessee Titans.

It has to be stated that Stacy managed to carry 26 times for 134 yards against the Seahawks, and 27 times for 127 yards and two touchdowns against the Titans. His ankle has clearly bothered him to the extent that it's being talked about, but not enough to really limit him on the field.

Against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 10, Stacy started to struggle, but still managed 26 carries for 62 yards with a touchdown. He's taken a firm handle on the St. Louis starting job, and practicing on an early day like Tuesday is always a great sign.

Fantasy Impact: Stacy is the No. 1 running back in St. Louis, replacing a thoroughly ineffective Daryl Richardson. But he's also approaching RB1 status for fantasy owners and if you lucked out to pick him up, he's been paying off thus far. Listen for any news of setbacks this week but otherwIse, Stacy is a must-start against the Chicago Bears and their No. 31 rush defense (133.9 rushing yards allowed per game on average).
