Falcons | Steven Jackson ready to go

Sat, 06 Sep 2014 11:19:30 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) will be healthy going into Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said Jackson is in good shape, has looked fast and has fresh legs.

Fantasy Tip: There's no telling how long Jackson will remain healthy, but he is at least a good flex option this week in what figures to be a high-scoring contest. Jackson costs $5,200 on FantasyScore.

Falcons | Steven Jackson remains out

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 08:43:04 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) is not participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 21.

Both Jackson and Freeman could be weekly flex options in some leagues.
