Rams second-year running back Benny Cunningham appears to be the leader for the handcuff role to Zac Stacy.Fantasy Spin:Tre Mason might be the more explosive runner, but Cunningham is a better pass blocker and with fragile Sam Bradford under center that's important. Eventually, Mason will bypass Cunningham.
We’ve spent a lot of time in the last few weeks setting our expectations for the 2014 Rams, but before any of those can become a reality, a 53-man roster must first be crafted.
We took a look at the quarterback position for our first 2014 training camp preview. Today, we take a look at a very intriguing position on the Rams roster: running backs.
Yesterday we examined whether the Rams should select a running back in the draft to pair with likely starter Zac Stacy. Today, we’re going to take a quick look at the Rams’ need for a running back overall.
The answer to whether the Rams need a backup running back all boils down to how comfortable you are with the current guys on the roster. The primary backup as of right now...

Benny Cunningham busted out for a big game on Sunday against the Chicago Bears and could be a fantasy option in Week 13 depending on the health of Zac Stacy. Stacy left Sunday’s game in the second quarter with a concussion, and it was all Cunningham after that. The undrafted back out of Middle Tennessee […]
St. Louis halfback Zac Stacy has been diagnosed with a concussion. He didn't come out for the start of the second half Sunday against the Bears.Fantasy Spin:Obviously, he's done for the day. Backup Benny Cunningham stands the most to gain in Stacy's absence.
