Notes: 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. He’s no longer a 1st/2nd round pick, but with his ADP down in the 6th/7th round, he’s shaping up to be a good value as the clear RB1 for the Falcons.

How much does Steven Jackson have left in the tank? The veteran running back just turned 31 on Tuesday and enters his 11th NFL season. The Falcons would be happy to get one more good year out of him. Jackson averaged a career-low 3.5 yards per carry last season, but he suffered an early season hamstring injury and ran behind a pathetic offensive line. A revamped front five and a renewed emphasis on the run should help Jackson's cause. He never appears to be out of shape and has a little added motivation with rookie Devonta Freeman now in the mix.


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. He’s no longer a 1st/2nd round pick, but with his ADP down in the 6th/7th round, he’s shaping up to be a good value assuming he can hold off rookie Devonta Freeman.
