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).
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.
