Cowboys | Steven Jackson want to go to Dallas

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 17:15:13 -0700

Free-agent RB Steven Jackson (Falcons) posted his desire to join the Dallas Cowboys on Twitter Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: It was clear that Jackson didn't have much left to offer during his time in Atlanta, and he'd be hard pressed to beat out either Joseph Randle or Darren McFadden in the open running back competition in Dallas.

NFL | Steven Jackson wants to play for winner

Thu, 14 May 2015 19:51:20 -0700

Free-agent RB Steven Jackson (Falcons) said he would like to keep playing but will only do so for a contender. "I want to be part of a winning team because when I do hang up my cleats, I can see a lot of people holding that over my head when a lot of it was out of my control," Jackson said.

Fantasy Tip: Even if a contender ends up signing Jackson, he isn't likely to have a major role. The best-case scenario would be for Jackson to handle some work around the goal line.

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.
