No timetable for Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring), will be ready Week 1

Atlanta Journal-Constitution - [Full Article]

Running back Steven Jackson (hamstring) did some work off to the side but there’s still no timetable on his return. Coach Mike Smith has said Jackson would be ready for the season opener on Sept. 7.

Fantasy Impact: 

Jackson pulled his hamstring last season, which was just one of the many injuries that plagued the Falcons in 2013. However, his FP/touch of 0.607 was not far off his career average of 0.617 prior to arriving in Atlanta. So while he was on the field, Jackson was pretty much himself from a fantasy standpoint. This hamstring injury has pushed his ADP down into the 8th round. He's not the Jackson of old, but he can still produce when on the field.
