Rams HC Jeff Fisher: Over time, RB Zac Stacy can be a 70-percent-of-carries player

Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said Wednesday, via Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, that running back Zac Stacy will evolve into a workhorse.
"I think over time, he'll probably be that 70-percent-of-the-carries guy," Fisher said of Stacy.
Stacy, who carried the ball once through last season's first four games before taking on a much bigger role in St. Louis' offense, gained more than 1,100 yards as a rookie.

Fantasy Analysis:

Fisher's statement has actually been proven already. From Week 5 on, Stacy handled 70.5 percent of the Rams' rushes. He had five games with at least 26 carries, and it's clear that Fisher has plans to only increase Stacy's workload. The Rams don't have a desirable secondary option behind him. Stacy helps out a little bit as a receiver -- he caught 26 passes in 14 games -- but 300 carries is a distinct possibility this season. Again, despite not playing much at all before Week 5, Stacy still carried the ball 250 times. That automatically puts him into the RB1 conversation.
