Stacy saw 18 of the running-back carries on Sunday, against the Texans, totaling 78 yards on the ground to go with two catches for 11 yards on two targets. Meanwhile, the other backs had just six carries and didn't do much with them either.
The Rams are currently ranked 29th in yards per carry and 28th in yards per game, so their offensive line hasn't helped them much. Add that to how the Panthers have been effective at stopping the run, and there isn't much to like about how Stacy will perform this week.
Fantasy impact: He's a starting tailback getting the bulk of the carries, so he has to be owned in all leagues. Stacy is more of a bruiser, so he's not likely going to bust out for any huge games. He should be considered as a flex play in standard leagues, but better days are ahead for the rookie back.
