Falcons | Steven Jackson not practicing

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 10:29:05 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) is not participating in practice Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: The hamstring injury continues to linger for Jackson. While there is still plenty of time for him to be ready for Week 1, Jackson should be viewed as a low-end No. 2 running back on draft day.

Falcons | Steven Jackson working on side

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 08:14:15 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) is working on a side field during practice Thursday, Aug. 14. Jackson is working with the training staff and is taking part in agility drills.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson still has a few weeks left to get ready for the regular season. Jackson is the starting running back but could lose some work to the other running backs on the roster. Owners should consider Jackson as a low-end No. 2 running back or a weekly flex option.

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 06:25:20 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) is out of practice Wednesday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's decline has been pretty evident. He's best-served as an RB3 if you can draft him that late.

Falcons | Steven Jackson works on the side

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 19:22:34 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) did some agility drills on the side during practice Monday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Nagging injuries continue to plague Jackson, and at this point, you should be cautious about drafting him. However, he has a chance to be a RB2 if he can manage to stay healthy, making him a nice gamble if you can grab him late enough.

Falcons | Steven Jackson has hammy issue

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 15:16:11 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) injured his hamstring Monday, July 28, which is why he wasn't practicing Tuesday, July 29. Head coach Mike Smith said Jackson will be ready for the team's first game.

Fantasy Tip: This is not what you want to see from an aging running back entering his age-31 season. Jacquizz Rodgers and Devonta Freeman could have heavy workloads if S-Jax continues to be bugged by nagging injuries all year long.

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.
