Falcons | Jason Snelling misses practice

Thu, 24 Oct 2013 15:04:30 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Jason Snelling (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 24.

Fantasy Tip: With Steven Jackson (hamstring) nearing his return, Snelling's value has dropped significantly. He's a flex option only in the very deepest of leagues now.

Falcons | Steven Jackson practices

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 11:15:09 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, Oct. 23, but he'll need to make it through practice this week without a setback in order to start in Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals. RBs Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling have combined for 319 yards on 93 carries with Jackson out.

Fantasy Tip: Expect to see plenty of Rodgers and Snelling, even if S-Jax suits up. This makes him a risky RB option this weekend.

Falcons | Steven Jackson to miss Week 7

Fri, 18 Oct 2013 12:48:15 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling probably will continue to share snaps at running back but could be more involved in the passing game because of Roddy White's injury. Rodgers and Snelling should be considered as No. 2 running backs or flex options this week.

Thu, 17 Oct 2013 15:03:05 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 17.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Jackson will miss another game because of his hamstring injury. Jason Snelling and Jacquizz Rodgers likely will continue to share carries and probably should be considered flex options if Jackson is out.

Falcons | Steven Jackson unlikely this week

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 05:44:59 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) is unlikely to return to action in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Expect a heavy dosage of Jacquizz Rodgers with Jason Snelling (concussion) likely healthy enough to take the short yardage and goal-line work.

Falcons | Jason Snelling tested for concussion

Mon, 07 Oct 2013 20:13:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Jason Snelling (concussion) was taken back to the locker room in the fourth quarter of the Week 5 game against the New York Jets Monday, Oct. 7, to get tested for a possible concussion.

Fantasy Tip: With Steven Jackson (hamstring) sidelined, and Snelling possibly out, too, that means more touches for RB Jacquizz Rodgers. The team has a much-needed bye in Week 6 for everyone to rest up.

Falcons | Steven Jackson to miss Week 5

Sat, 05 Oct 2013 09:55:54 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Jason Snelling and Jacquizz Rodgers likely will continue to share playing time at running back with Jackson out. Since neither running back likely will see a majority of the carries, both Snelling and Rodgers should be considered flex options this week.

Falcons | Steven Jackson misses practice

Thu, 03 Oct 2013 14:25:23 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 3. Jackson observed practice in shorts and hasn't practiced since injuring his hamstring in Week 2. However, head coach Mike Smith is optimistic about Jackson, but he won't return to action until he's 100 percent healthy. "We're not going to rule him out at this point in time," Smith said. "He's working hard to get back. And we'll have to see how the rest of the week plays out."

Fantasy Tip: We don't expect S-Jax to be back this weekend, given the fact that Atlanta has their bye in Week 6. It's very realistic for Jackson to return in Week 7, making Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling very short-term values.

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 09:58:32 -0700

Atlanta Falcons FB Patrick DiMarco has been promoted from the practice squad to the active roster, where he assumes the role as the No. 1 fullback over RB Jason Snelling. LB Joplu Bartu and DE Jonathan Massaquoi will fill in for LB Sean Weatherspoon (foot) and DE Kroy Biermann (Achilles'), respectively. LB Jamar Chaney is the No. 2 strongside linebacker behind LB Stephen Nicholas, and LB Omar Gaither is the backup at weakside linebacker behind Bartu. LB Paul Worrilow is the backup to LB Akeem Dent at middle linebacker.

Falcons | Likely to split RB duties

Tue, 17 Sep 2013 10:30:54 -0700

The Atlanta Falcons are likely to split the running back duties between RBs Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling if RB Steven Jackson (thigh) doesn't play in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins. Rodgers and Snelling ran for a combined 36 yards when Jackson left in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers should be your primary target on the waiver wire if you own Jackson or are hurting at the position. He'll be more valuable than Snelling in point-per-reception formats, too.

Falcons | Steven Jackson uncertain for Week 3

Tue, 17 Sep 2013 05:53:56 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (thigh) is uncertain for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: These are the risks you take with Jackson, who has a history of frustrating, minor injuries that have limited him. Jacquizz Rodgers would take his place, with Jason Snelling filling in on the goal line. With Roddy White banged up, this could significantly slow down the Dirty Birds' offense and put more emphasis on stopping Julio Jones.

Falcons | Jason Snelling to see dual role

Mon, 16 Sep 2013 12:46:38 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Jason Snelling will see more time in a dual role of fullback and running back after the team lost FB Bradie Ewing (shoulder) for the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Snelling could be a popular waiver wire target this week or in weeks to come if Steven Jackson (thigh) is forced to miss time. However, Jacquizz Rodgers is the better option ahead of Snelling.

Falcons | Steven Jackson hasn't returned

Sun, 15 Sep 2013 12:45:59 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (thigh) hasn't returned to the game. RBs Jason Snelling and Jacquizz Rodgers are splitting carries for him.

Fantasy Tip: With 6 minutes left in the game, it looks like he's done for the day. It has been diagnosed as a bruised thigh.

Falcons | Jacquizz Rodgers unsure about role

Sun, 23 Jun 2013 18:08:04 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers is uncertain how the carries will be split following the offseason addition of RB Steven Jackson. Last season, free-agent RB Michael Turner (Falcons) handled 66.4 percent of the carries by the team's RBs (222 of 334 carries). Rodgers had 28.4 percent (94 carries), with RB Jason Snelling handling 5.2 percent (18 carries).

Fantasy Tip: The team has big plans for Jackson, but Rodgers plans to learn as much as he can and be ready when his number is called. As far as his fantasy value, he is a decent addition later on draft day, especially in points-per-reception (PPR) leagues.

Falcons | Taking committee approach at RB

Wed, 28 Nov 2012 16:35:23 -0800

The Atlanta Falcons prefer a committee approach at running back these days between RBs Michael Turner and Jacquizz Rodgers. "We feel like Jacquizz is a very viable option to carry the football and has done a nice job for us," head coach Mike Smith said. "It has become more of the vogue thing to do, to have a 'running back by committee.'" RB Jason Snelling also had three catches for 33 yards in the team's Week 12 victory. Turner is receiving fewer chances to run the ball as the team spreads out the touches. He has had only 62.7 percent of the team's carries this year, by far his lowest total in each of his previous three years. Turner is only averaging 3.5 yards per carry, too, which is on pace for the worst mark of his career.

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith has said running the ball will remain a priority in offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter's system, but it will be on a more by-committee basis. That means RBs Michael Turner, Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling are all likely to figure in for carries.
