Zac Stacy, RB, Jets
|RB - #20||49.00||NYJ||Active||3 years||24||5'8||216|
2014 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)Last updated on Jul-10-2014 by Brad Kruse
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.
After the Rams drafted Todd Gurley with the tenth-overall pick, Zac Stacy tweeted out 'Yikes' and promptly requested a trade. With Tre Mason already ahead of him on the depth chart, Stacy saw the writing on the wall. The 2013 waiver wire hero has been traded to the Jets for a seventh-round pick.Fantasy Analysis:
This is no surprise, and Stacy just further crowds a Jets backfield that already has Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley. They're three average backs all jumbled up. Stacy is a plodder and likely the worst of the bunch. You are probably best off avoiding their backfield altogether.

2014 Mock Draft Results
FFToolbox Mock Draft July 21
|3.10||Mr. Landry - Knew I'd be in this position when I skipped RB early. I don't buy into the threat of Mason taking Stacy's job. I think he's good for 1,200+ yards and 8-10 TD's. Serviceable at the end of round 3.|

|3.06||Gridiron Experts - @MikeRigz - For a brief second I thought about going with Julius Thomas with this pick, seeing how we have two flex's I snapped out of it as Fantasy owners can focus too much on the PPR element of a draft. While I'm not a huge fan of Stacy this year I do think if he can build on his strong campaign from a season ago than I just scored big in the 3rd round.|
