Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith is optimistic that RB Steven Jackson will bounce back from a disappointing 2013 season in which he played in only 12 games due to a hamstring injury and averaged a career-low 3.5 yards per carry. Jackson finished the year with six touchdowns in the final six games, however. Atlanta uses a committee at running back with Jackson and RBs Jacquizz Rodgers and Antone Smith.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson has always been injury-prone, and now that he's on the wrong side of 30, that'll become more of an issue. More usage of Rodgers and Smith would be wise if the Falcons want to keep S-Jax healthy over the full season. His numbers from last year should be what you should expect moving forward, especially in a committee backfield.

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.
