Falcons | Want to run Steven Jackson more
Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter wants to lean upon RB Steven Jackson more than he has since the running back returned from injury. "My opinion is Steven Jackson is a workhorse running back and we haven't been able to work him," Koetter said Tuesday, Nov. 12. "I mean, I think Steven is one of those guys that gets better the more he touches it." Jackson's season-high for carries is 13 against the Carolina Panthers.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson is averaging a career-low 3.2 yards per carry, but he has been injured. Koetter's plan to get Jackson more carries is great news for fantasy owners. However, Jackson and the Falcons face a difficult matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11, as Tampa ranks fifth in the league in rushing defense.
