Baller Move:  Add in Deeper Leagues

Analysis:  Anyone who watched last week’s game against Seattle, saw that Zac Stacy is an impressive young running back for the Rams.  But towards the end of the game, Stacy had to exit with an ankle sprain.  The good news is he avoided a high-ankle sprain, which could take several weeks to recover from.  But the bad news is Stacy still sprained his ankle, and is on a short week for recovering.  Stacy was very limited in practice today, so it’s tough to say whether he’ll be able to play in week 9.  If he isn’t able to go, Richardson would most likely assume the lead running back role for the Rams and get plenty of volume.  With Kellen Clemens getting another start this week, the Rams will desperately need to lean on their running game again.  Those in deeper leagues, or those who own Stacy, should be targeting D-Rich as a week 9 sleeper off the waiver wire.
