Falcons | Steven Jackson out for game

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 11:50:34 -0800

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (quadriceps) has been ruled out for the rest of the team's Week 16 game because of his quadriceps injury.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's availability for Week 17 is uncertain because of the injury. Jacquizz Rodgers and Devonta Freeman likely would share time at running back next week if Jackson misses the game and could be flex option for owners on FantasyScore.

Falcons | Steven Jackson leaves with injury

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 11:14:19 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (quadriceps) suffered a quadriceps injury in Week 16 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers likely will split playing time if Jackson has to miss extended time. Neither would be a great option on FantasyScore at this point.

Falcons | Steven Jackson a full go

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 11:32:03 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should be ready to go in Week 12, and has a nice matchup against the Cleveland Browns. Jackson will cost $4,900 this week. If he can't go or is limited, Devonta Freeman would receive most of the work and will cost $3,000 in FantasyScore.

Falcons | Steven Jackson out with illness

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 11:28:56 -0800

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (illness) was out of practice with an illness Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($4,900) should be able to play against the Cleveland Browns, who have allowed the third-most rushing yards (1,190) this season. That makes Jackson a decent play at FantasyScore, but if you're looking for more upside, Devonta Freeman ($3,000) is the better play - not to mention he's a bargain.

Falcons | Steven Jackson sitting out

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 09:33:22 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known why Jackson was not on the field during practice, so owners should watch for an update in the near future. Jackson costs $4,900 on FantasyScore but may not be the best option to use this week. Devonta Freeman would receive more work if Jackson is not able to play and would be a good flex option at $3,000.

Falcons | Devonta Freeman to step into bigger role

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 13:06:07 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is likely to step into a bigger backfield role with RB Antone Smith (leg) out for the rest of the season. RB Steven Jackson remains the starter, however.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is the most explosive runner on Atlanta's roster with Smith suffering a season-ending injury. That makes Freeman worth a waiver-wire acquisition for depth. Against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12, Freeman is an intriguing flex play.

Falcons | Steven Jackson has best game of year

Sun, 09 Nov 2014 14:43:21 -0800

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson carried 16 times for a season-high 81 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also added two receptions for 14 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson had 18 touches to lead all Atlanta runners, with Davonta Freeman and Antone Smith each a distant second with four touches. Jackson is still only worth a look as a low-end RB2 or flex play in FantasyScore only if his Week 10 salary remains low.

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 healthy

Thu, 04 Sep 2014 05:29:54 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) did not appear on the team's Week 1 injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is a low-risk play this week at $5,200 on FantasyScore. If the Falcons can compete with the high-flying New Orleans Saints offense, Jackson could outperform his price tag this week as an RB3.

Falcons | Steven Jackson to play?

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 13:58:05 -0700

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) could play a few snaps tonight to test out his injured hamstring, according to ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is slated to play Week 1, so he probably won't see much action, if any. Jackson's health is already a concern heading into the season. He should be considered a flex option.
