Zac Stacy has huge fantasy day in Rams loss

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The St. Louis rookie was enormously productive despite being an injury question mark all week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Coming off a big rushing game Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks (and a resultant ankle injury), St. Louis Rams running back Zac Stacy proved it was no fluke Sunday, scoring two touchdowns as the Rams fell to the Tennessee Titans, 28-21.

Stacy ran the ball 27 times for 127 yards and two scores in the game, adding six receptions for 51 yards. His 178 all-purpose yards were almost 50 more than his previous career high, set in that Monday night game. Stacy's scores came on 3- and 9-yard runs in the second and third quarters, respectively.

Fantasy impact: After spending all week on injury reports, worrying fantasy owners, Stacy proved himself to be a viable player with his huge game. It took the Rams a while to settle on Stacy over other running backs like Daryl Richardson, Isaiah Pead and Benny Cunningham, but there's certainly no reason now to think he won't hold the No. 1 gig for the rest of the year, barring injury.

With Kellen Clemens being unimpressive at quarterback, and not much to the Rams receiving corps, opposing defenses will start game-planning for Stacy specifically, which could hinder his performance. He's still pretty clearly an RB2 at worst at this point, and could be an RB1 for several teams.
