Week 6 NFL Rookie Report

Only one top-75 pick from April’s draft made this week’s Rookie Report as the season moves into its sixth week. Many high picks have already found a way into their team’s starting lineup, leaving the new opportunities to mid-round picks and undrafted rookies who are seeing the field with players in front of them hurt or playing poorly. Chris Tripodi will let you know which unheralded first-year players are making front offices around the NFL look smart with his Week 6 Rookie Report.

Zac Stacy (RB-StL)

With Daryl Richardson’s demotion heading into Week 5, Stacy has taken the reigns in the Rams backfield and looks to be running with the opportunity. After seeing 41 of the 73 snaps in his first start with Richardson still seeing 23 plays himself, it seemed Stacy would simply be the leader of a St. Louis committee. On Sunday, however, Stacy played 38 out of 47 snaps compared to just 5 for Richardson and ran for 79 yards on 18 carries. It looks like the St. Louis backfield belongs to the rookie fifth-rounder until further notice.
