Atlanta Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers, who has 23 carries over his last three games, will be ready to assume a lead role at running back if RB Michael Turner (elbow) can't play in Week 14. "Absolutely," head coach Mike Smith said. "Jacquizz is one of many guys we feel like deserves to get touches on our offense. If need be, we think he can take carries that other guys may get in other games."

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 offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said Tuesday, Nov. 13, that RB Jacquizz Rodgers has not necessarily earned more carries, but the situation will continue to be reviewed. "Jacquizz did a good job when he was in there," Koetter said. "He touched the ball, but some of that could be luck of the draw. We'll see how it plays out. Touches on this team are always going to be an issue because we have so many good skill guys. One guy's increase in touches is going to come at the expense of another guy. Who is that? That's the million dollar question."

Atlanta Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers carried six times for 18 yards in Week 4 against the Carolina Panthers, and added four receptions for 40 yards. After seeing just 12 total touches through his first two games, Rodgers has managed a total of 25 touches over the past two weeks.
Sun, 23 Sep 2012 21:59:15 -0700
Atlanta Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers carried 10 times for 32 yards in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons, and he added five catches for 35 yards and his first career score.
Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has the potential to be a big-time fantasy option in future weeks, especially in PPR formats. He hasn't shown a lot of consistency to date, but he is worth stashing away if you can afford the roster spot.
Mon, 17 Sep 2012 21:28:45 -0700
Atlanta Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers carried three times for just three yards in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos, and he did not haul in any receptions.
Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is listed as the No. 2 back for the Falcons, but he is certainly not doing what fantasy owners in PPR leagues had hoped. At this point, he only looks worth keeping as a handcuff for owners of Michael Turner.
Sun, 09 Sep 2012 18:41:36 -0700
Atlanta Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers carries seven times for 22 yards in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs, and he added two receptions for 13 yards. He had nine touches to 11 for starting RB Michael Turner.
Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has plenty of upside, and he is especially intriguing in points-per-reception (PPR) fantasy formats. However, he should only be used in the deepest of leagues heading into Week 2 against the Denver Broncos.
