Falcons cut RB Steven Jackson; Devonta Freeman ready for bigger role

Falcons released RB Steven Jackson, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

Looking at the running back position, Kyle Shanahan presided over three stellar fantasy seasons in his seven years as an offensive coordinator. In 2008, while Shanny was the OC of the Texans, Steve Slaton turned 327 touches (50 receptions) into 1,659 yards and 10 touchdowns. (Slaton averaged 77.6 total yards on 15.9 touches in 2009.) In 2012, rookie Alfred Morris racked up 1,690 total yards and 13 touchdowns. He followed it up with 1,353 total yards and seven scores in 2013. Shanahan even coaxed 86.7 total yards (on 18.2 touches) from Ryan Torain in 2010 and 67.9 yards on 13.3 touches from Roy Helu in 2011. Freeman wasn't terribly impressive in his rookie season (248 yards rushing, 3.8 YPC), but he was active and effective in the passing game (30 catches for 225 yards), so a Slaton-esque season isn't out of the realm of possibility. With Jackson out of the way, GM Thomas Dimitroff said that there was “no question” that Freeman is ready to be the feature back in Atlanta.

Scouting Report

Week 17 - Morris vs. Dallas

Alfred Morris had his best fantasy game since Week 12, running for 83 yards and a TD last week against the Eagles. It was Morris' eighth TD of the season. It was a decent enough matchup against the Eagles, but Morris had struggled the previous three contest, not getting more than 67 yards and also not scoring a TD so there was a little risk in playing him.

This week, Morris gets a nice matchup on paper against Dallas. While the 'Boys say they will play their starters Week 17, you have to imagine at some point Morris may see some time against backups. Morris should give you solid numbers in Week 17.
