Thu, 26 Jun 2014 23:35:52 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman will be groomed into the team's three-down back of the future, and he might battle RB Steven Jackson for playing time this year if he continues to look good. The battle for the third running back will be between RBs Antone Smith and Jacquizz Rodgers.

Falcons | Steven Jackson may have short leash

Thu, 26 Jun 2014 09:28:36 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson, who is entering his age-31 season and likely only has one good season left in him, could find himself with less playing time if he is slowed by nagging injuries in 2014. Until then, though, Jackson is considered the team's starter.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson dealt with some nagging injuries last year, and by the end of the season, he looked just plain old and lacked explosiveness at the line. Don't be surprised to see Devonta Freeman handle more of the work as the season progresses, with S-Jax handling goal-line duties. If you own Jackson, Freeman is a necessary handcuff.

Falcons | Mike Smith believes in Steven Jackson

Fri, 28 Mar 2014 11:08:57 -0700

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.
