Jamaal Charles, Matt Forte, Adrian Peterson, LeSean McCoy, Marshawn Lynch and... Zac Stacy?

Yes, folks, it's time to start considering Stacy one of the truly elite running backs in fantasy football, as the St. Louis Rams breakout star already registered 15 fantasy points in standard-scoring leagues by the end of the first half against the Chicago Bears in Week 12.   

His 97 yards from scrimmage and a score after just two quarters ensured another big afternoon for his fantasy owners. He would leave the game with a concussion, however, a concern for both the Rams and Stacy owners moving forward.

Stacy didn't start until Week 5 this year, but he's become the waiver MVP with double-digit fantasy points in five straight games and at least seven fantasy points in all seven of his starts.

In a season that has been pretty disappointing for the St. Louis Rams—especially once quarterback Sam Bradford was lost for the year—Stacy has been a huge bright spot for the team. The rookie has come out of nowhere, but it's clear that in fantasy football he is here to stay.
