Rams second-year runner Zac Stacy is widely viewed as the opening-day starter, leaving plenty to wonder why Benny Cunningham got the nod in Saturday night's 33-14 romp over the Cleveland Browns.
Cunningham churned out 32 yards on five carries with the first team and showed burst on a 21-yard volt through Mike Pettine's defense. His handiwork, though, doesn't suggest a change in the pecking order.
"We just gave (Cunningham) a chance to run behind the first offensive line. We know what Zac can do," coach Jeff Fisher told reporters after the game, per ESPN.com's Nick Wagoner.
Hopefully for fantasy owners, this is exactly what Fisher said it is. There hasn't been much of a push for the RB1 job from Cunningham or rookie Tre Mason, who some thought would cut into Stacy's work. Mason hasn't picked up pass-protection as of yet and it's keeping him off the field.
