Zac Stacy injury update: should start for Rams despite being questionable, fantasy owners can relax

Andy Lyons

The Rams running back participated in a full practice on Thursday and should play against the Titans. We break down the fantasy implications.

Editor's Note: Adam Schefter reporting Stacy is expected to start.

St. Louis Rams running back Zac Stacy (ankle) is listed as questionable for the team's Week 9 game against the Tennessee Titans. Stacy ran for a career-high 134 yards against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 8.

Fantasy impact: even though he didn't practice on Friday, fantasy owners shouldn't be worried about whether or not Stacy will play against the Titans. He's been questionable for a few weeks now but hasn't missed any game action.

Given that he played well against a typically stout Seattle Seahawks defense last week, Stacy garners an automatic start in deeper leagues, especially given he should get a lot of touches with Kellen Clemens at quarterback for the Rams, not exactly the most prolific passer in the NFL.

It's safe to say that Stacy has clearly supplanted teammates Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead as the team's number one back, and he's a good bet to produce some solid fantasy totals in Week 9 despite his injury. The Tennessee Titans giving up the fifth most fantasy points to running backs this season.
