St. Louis Post-Dispatch - [Full Article]

Coming off the toughest statistical game of his rookie season — 14 carries, 25 yards, 1.8 per carry in a road loss to the Arizona CardinalsZac Stacy bounced back in a big way Sunday, helping the Rams knock off the NFC South-leading New Orleans Saints 27-16 Sunday afternoon at the Edward Jones Dome.

The 5-foot-8, 214-pound Stacy had a career-high 28 carries, rushed for 133 yards and scored a career-long 40-yard run late in the first half that allowed the Rams to take a 24-3 lead to the break.

Stacy had 106 yards at halftime, setting a team rookie record.

All that after suffering a hip injury on the game’s first drive.

“I just took a shot ... (the doctors and trainers) fixed it up for me and I went back out there,’’ he said. “I’m a competitor. I want to get back on the field as much as I can to help this team and this organization be successful.’’

Fantasy Impact:

Stacy will get the Bucs for what is likely your fantasy finals in Week 16. He doesn't seem too concerned with the hip injury that kept him out of just one drive. It's not a great matchup yet again, but Stacy has been pretty solid since taking over as the Rams RB1 so he should be a worthy RB2 option.

Rams WR Tavon Austin (ankle, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 15. Austin was writhing in pain after the injury, but was walking around on it a few moments later. As of Friday, he was still in a walking boot, so consider him very iffy to play in Week 15. He can’t be trusted under these circumstances.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch - [Full Article]

Tight end Jared Cook is on pace to establish career highs in catches, yards and touchdowns.

With four games remaining in 2013, he already has more reception yards (557) in one season than any Rams tight end since the team moved to St. Louis in 1995. He needs eight more catches to establish a “St. Louis” Rams single-season high for receptions by a tight end.

And he leads the 2013 squad in receptions (40) and yards 12 games into the season.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story points out, the prevailing opinion is that Cook has had a disappointing first season with the Rams after signing a five-year, $35.1 million free-agent deal last March following his first four seasons in Tennessee.

Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (ankle, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 14. Floyd isn’t 100 percent, but he should be fine to face the Rams.

Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (ankle) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Floyd should be fine to face the Rams.
