This is admittedly not a fantasy play for the faint of heart.
After all, St. Louis Rams running backs Isaiah Pead and Zac Stacy weren't even active in last week's loss to San Francisco.
Healthy scratches generally aren't big fantasy producers.
However, as Nick Wagoner of ESPN reports, Daryl Richardson tweeted Wednesday that he isn't starting for the Rams against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday.
Head coach Jeff Fisher hasn't said who will draw the start, but it's a safe bet that it will either be Pead or Stacy, as Benny Cunningham has been underwhelming and then some.
For Wagoner's money, he feels it's time for Stacy to get a shot.
Yes, that shot comes for a Rams team that ranks last in the NFL in rushing. This is the definition of a desperation play—the fantasy football equivalent of a Hail Mary.
With that said, though, both backs are available on many waiver wires, and the Jaguars are a favorable matchup for running backs, so as desperation plays go, you could do worse.
