Is Zac Stacy a RB1 ROS?

Is Zac Stacy a RB1 ROS?

Nov 17, 2013

.
In the past six games St. Louis Rams rookie running back Zac Stacy has averaged 105 total yards and 0.7 touchdowns per game. In a season with “stud” running backs like Arian Foster and Ray Rice struggling, this fifth round pick is averaging 88.8 rushing yards per game at 4.2 yards per carry.
.
In his past five games Stacy has averaged three receptions per game, bolstering his points-per-reception value.
.
The Rams haven’t shied away from giving him the ball. Stacy has averaged 23.8 touches in his six games as the feature back.
.
Obviously his numbers have been aided by facing the Jacksonville Jaguars, Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans, but Stacy had 90 total yards against the Houston Texans, 87 total yards against the Carolina Panthers and an impressive 129 total yards against the Seattle Seahawks.
.
Stacy, at 5’8″ and 224 pounds, is following in the footsteps of Maurice Jones-Drew, Ray Rice and Doug Martin. He is short in stature like those guys, but he’s a bit stockier and packs quite a punch.
.
He has displayed toughness by playing through a sprained ankle. The bye week came at a good time to help him get fresh for the stretch run.
.
Stacy is fortunate that his rematch with the Seahawks comes in Week 17. Most leagues are wrapped up by then. He does have some tough games against the San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he has favorable matchups against the Chicago Bears and the New Orleans Saints.
.
FantasyPros has Stacy’s ROS ranking at 18, but I think he’s much higher than that. With the run he’s on, I would have no trouble using him as a RB1. If nothing else, he’s a  high end RB2. More in the top 15 or higher.

What are your thoughts on Zac Stacy?
