Zac Stacy becoming a must-start option in fantasy

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Zac Stacy was a busy man against the Titans on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams running Zac Stacy was a workhorse on Sunday with 27 carries for 127 yards and two scores on the ground, while adding six receptions for 51 yards in the passing game.

There aren't many out there in the NFL these days, but Stacy is a featured back. He gets work on all three downs, runs the ball in short yardage situations and he's used in the passing game.

His competition has fallen by the wayside and no other running back had more than three carries or 11 yards.

The Rams don't have much of a passing attack with Kellen Clemens at the helm, so it is imperative that they get the ball moving on the ground. Clemens didn't complete any balls more than 20 yards on Sunday and totaled just 210 yards.

Fantasy impact: He was obviously picked up in all leagues already, but now he's emerging as a must-start option. He's had at least 17 carries in each of his last three games.  The Rams take on the Colts next week and Stacy should remain in all fantasy lineups for that contest.
