NFL | Steven Jackson plans to keep playing

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 21:38:54 -0800

Free-agent RB Steven Jackson (Falcons) plans to continue playing, according to statement posted on his website.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's days as a No. 1 fantasy back are long gone, but he could have some value as a power back if he lands the right situation.

Falcons | Steven Jackson to be cut

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 16:23:10 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson will reportedly be released Friday, Feb. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson can be considered over the hill at this point in his career, though he still does have some fantasy value if nothing more than as a goal line running back; he had six touchdowns in each of his two seasons with the Falcons. Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers will take over duties out of the Falcons' backfield, with Freeman likely having more fantasy value.

Falcons | Steven Jackson could be leaving

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 13:35:30 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson is expected to be on his way out of Atlanta with a new coaching staff and a new zone-blocking running scheme on the way under new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. RBs Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers would take over backfield duties if Jackson were to leave, assuming Rodgers is retained.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's best days are obviously behind him as he hasn't rushed for at least 1,000 yards since 2012 after eight consecutive seasons of doing so. The passing of the torch seems imminent and it remains to be seen where Jackson will end up. He's a flex option at best in 2015, though there are still blanks to be filled.

Falcons | More reps for Devonta Freeman, Jacquizz Rodgers

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 14:08:13 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RBs Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers are expected to see more repetitions in Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers with RB Steven Jackson (quadriceps) unlikely to play. However, head coach Mike Smith hasn't officially ruled Jackson out yet. The team is anxious, though, to see how Freeman will perform with more touches. RB Jerome Smith, who was promoted from the practice squad this week, will be active against the Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman should be your initial play in standard leagues if you're picking between he and Rodgers. Against the Panthers, Freeman could be a very nice FantasyScore play after replacing S-Jax last week and running for a TD.
