Rams running back Zac Stacy returned to practice on Thursday and is in line for another big game on the road against Indianapolis.
At the start of the season, pundits wondered who would be the feature back for the Rams, Daryl Richardson or Isaiah Pead. At that point, no one was even considering Stacy, but the rookie started getting significant carries during Week 3 and hasn’t looked back since then.
He’s rushed for 125+ yards during his last two games and scored his first two rushing touchdowns of the year last week against the Titans.
Stacy is also a weapon in the passing game. Last week, he had 6 catches for 51 yards and during Week 7 against Carolina, he had 4 catches for 34 yards and a receiving touchdown.
The rookie has great speed and an innate ability to find holes and explode through them. Expect Stacy to be a solid fantasy option for the rest of this season and beyond.
