St. Louis Rams

QB Shaun Hill - Not Draft Worthy
With Calvin Johnson at his disposal, Shaun Hill proved he could provide serviceable fantasy weeks when called upon. Unfortunately, Johnson is no longer on this team. If Bradford goes down, Hill would become the team's starter. He has no fantasy value.
RB Zac Stacy - Bust (overvalued)
Stacy opened up 2013 buried on the depth chart. When Stacy got his chance, he played very well. He proved to be fairly durable and kept drives moving for St. Louis. He eclipsed 100 rushing yards in a game four times and also scored seven TDs from Weeks 9 to 16. The Rams drafted a rookie in Tre Mason; some think can challenge Stacy for the starting job. Given Stacy's performance last year, the job won't be flippantly handed over to Mason. With Stacy as the starter and earning the majority of carries, he should be able to turn in similar rushing numbers to what he did last year.
However, Stacy wasn't successful enough running the ball to completely rely on his rushing totals to propel your fantasy team. In 2014, his fantasy success will be tied to his ability to produce at the goal-line and become more involved in the passing game.
Editor's note: We are not as high on Stacy as some of our peers. While Stacy is entrenched as the starter, his so-so athleticism, limited pass-catching skills and potential loss of snaps to a third-down back should be of concern. It also doesn't help that he must face San Francisco, Arizona and Seattle a total of six times per season.
