While the Rams continue to list running back Zac Stacy as the starter -- and he probably will be against the Vikings in Week 1 -- general manager Les Snead said on local radio this week that he expects the offense to go with the "hot hand" in a given week at running back. Benny Cunningham started in Stacy's place in the third preseason game against Cleveland and both backs should get opportunities against Minnesota. Plan your fantasy rosters accordingly.
Stacy was under some pressure this preseason from Benny Cunningham who has run well when given the opportunity. HC Jeff Fisher poured cold water on the Cunningham hype by saying that his start over Stacy was just to see him run with the first team, but now Snead is saying that it will be a 'hot hand' situation. Stacy owners should pick up Cunningham, and their leaguemates should try to stash him if they have room.
