Beat: Steven Jackson "looks explosive at half speed" - [Full Article]

Falcons RB Steven Jackson still has a good jump-cut step. He even looks explosive at half speed.

Fantasy Impact: 

Jackson has a chance to have fantasy success in Atlanta's high-octane offense. Jackson will benefit from extra red zone touches -- Michael Turner had almost twice as many red zone carries as Jackson did in 2012. He'll also enjoy running against defenses that will have to respect Matt Ryan and the Falcons' potent passing game. He has a chance to be a three-down back -- the Falcons have praised his pass-catching in OTAs. S-Jax looks like a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 in his new situation.
