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 Cardinals — Zac 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.’’
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.
