Jets acquired RB Zac Stacy from the Rams in exchange for the No. 224 overall pick in the NFL draft.
The Jets contacted the Rams about Stacy earlier in the day. Unhappy with his place on the Rams' depth chart after the team selected Todd Gurley, Stacy now finds himself in the exact same position in New York. Like Stacy, Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley are limited power backs, but they are much better players. Ridley is coming off a serious knee injury, however, and the Jets' new coaching staff does not appear to favor Ivory. Stacy will compete for a role in camp. May 2 - 5:27 PM

Zac Stacy - RB - Jets

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports the Jets inquired about Rams RB Zac Stacy.

The Jets did not make a formal offer, and Stacy would be somewhat redundant in New York with limited power runners Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley already on the roster. Stacy wants to be traded after the Rams selected Todd Gurley in the first round. St. Louis would love to oblige. Despite a 3.9 career YPC, the Rams could possibly turn Stacy into a seventh-round pick.

Zac Stacy - RB - Jets

Appearing on NFL Draft Kickoff, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Rams would be "more than happy" to honor Zac Stacy's trade request.

Sitting in the No. 4 spot on the Rams' running back depth chart, Stacy wants out of St. Louis. The Rams would likely be ecstatic to land a seventh-round pick for the 5-foot-8 bowling ball that has reminded of a rich man's Shonn Greene through two NFL seasons. Running back-needy teams will certainly wait to see if they can get their hands on a superior runner in this loaded draft class before forking over a late pick for a guy who has averaged 3.9 YPC in his career.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Rams RB Zac Stacy has requested a trade, and that the team is "open to moving him."

We wouldn't doubt it, but St. Louis isn't going to find a market for its No. 4 running back. Getting a seventh-round pick would be a best-case scenario. Stacy is just two years removed from a 973-yard season, but has averaged 3.9 yards per carry for his career.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Zac Stacy plans to ask the Rams to trade or release him following their selection of Todd Gurley.

With Gurley on board, Stacy now finds himself a distant fourth on the Rams' running back depth chart behind Gurley, Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham. Stacy followed up a promising rookie campaign with a miserable 2014, losing his job to Mason and rarely playing after Week 6. He's still only 24 but the Rams probably won't get much for the plodding 224-pounder.

Zac Stacy rushed two times for three yards and caught three passes for 17 yards in the Rams' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks.

Stacy caps off an extremely disappointing sophomore season with 293 yards and one touchdown on 76 carries (3.85 YPC) to go along with an 18-152 receiving line. Coming off a solid rookie season, Stacy entered 2014 as the starter but wheezed his way to just 228 yards and one touchdown on 53 carries the first five weeks of the season, failing to break tackles and losing two fumbles along the way. After Week 6, Stacy played just 31 snaps excluding Week 17. It’s Tre Mason’s backfield now in St. Louis, though the Rams say they still like Stacy. Signed cheaply through 2016, Stacy should be back with the Rams next summer, but he’ll have to compete for a roster spot.

Zac Stacy - RB - Jets

Zac Stacy rushed seven times for 25 yards in the Rams' Week 13 win over the Raiders.

St. Louis won this game 52-0 and was able to get Stacy involved. Entering the game, he hadn't had a carry since late October. Stacy is a shaky handcuff for Tre Mason's fantasy owners because he would likely split work with Benny Cunningham and/or Trey Watts if something unfortunate happened to Mason.

Zac Stacy - RB - Jets

Zac Stacy hasn't played a snap since Week 8.

In other words, Stacy isn't even worth an end-of-roster spot in 14-team leagues. He's been completely phased out of the Rams' offense. Stacy has a dicey future in Dynasty leagues, but should probably be held through at least the spring.

Zac Stacy did not take a snap in the Rams' Week 9 win over the 49ers.

Tre Mason dominated the early-down work, and Benny Cunningham sprinkled in on passing downs. Stacy does not have a role in the Rams' offense right now, and is droppable in all formats.

Zac Stacy - RB - Jets

Zac Stacy rushed for 17 yards on five carries in the Rams' Week 8 loss to the Chiefs, adding three catches for 20 yards.

Back from sideline banishment in Week 7 when he played just one offensive snap, Stacy was the third back through the rotation on Sunday, tying Tre Mason for the team lead with eight touches. Benny Cunningham, who got the start, received five touches. Stacy also dropped a pass. None of the three backs will be recommended fantasy plays next week in San Francisco. It's a full-blown committee.

Zac Stacy - RB - Jets

Zac Stacy didn't register a single touch in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Seahawks.

Benny Cunningham got the start for the Rams, with Stacy playing just one snap all afternoon. But it was Tre Mason who took control of the backfield by out-touching Cunningham 18-7. Stacy isn't injured, as he was seen on the sideline just waiting to see if he'd play. He simply hasn't been effective all season, and the Rams are making a switch. Stacy can now safely be dropped in 12- and 14-team leagues as the Rams' No. 3 running back. He's a slow mover who doesn't do anything in the pass game. He's Matt Asiata and Shonn Greene's child.

Zac Stacy - RB - Jets

Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer confirmed the team is using a "hot hand" approach at running back.

"Early in the game, we try to get guys multiple touches," Schottenheimer said, "then we try to go with the hot hand late in the game." The approach explains why Zac Stacy has averaged 12.2 carries this season after seeing 20.8 carries a start last season. With Tre Mason now in the mix, Stacy should see his share of the workload fall even farther. He is not worth a start against the Seahawks this week, and could be playing himself out of fantasy relevancy.

Zac Stacy (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 7.

After almost single-handedly giving St. Louis a competitive offense in 2013, Stacy has been reduced to a timeshare back in 2014. He is practicing in full and will play against Seattle, but may not get more than ten touches.

Zac Stacy (ankle) returned to Rams practice Thursday, getting in a full session.

Wednesday was just a day of rest for the Rams' theoretical No. 1 back. Stacy's health is not a concern, but his increasing rotation with Benny Cunningham and Tre Mason is. Stacy can't be trusted as more than a low-end RB3 for Week 7.

Zac Stacy (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Coach Jeff Fisher said there were "no physical issues" with Stacy in Monday's loss to the 49ers, but he's now apparently dealing with an ankle injury. Benny Cunningham led the Rams' backfield in snaps in Week 6, with Tre Mason also mixing in. Stacy's status will be updated again on Thursday.
