Falcons want to increase Steven Jackson's workload
Wednesday, November 13, 2013, 11:50am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Don't expect the Atlanta Falcons to spread the carries around among running backs Steven Jackson, Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling.

If anything, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Jackson get even more carries Sunday at Tampa Bay, if the Falcons can avoid falling behind and having to rely on the passing game.

Although Jackson managed just 11 yards on nine carries in a 33-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter sees the need to give Jackson more opportunities.

"My opinion is Steven Jackson is a workhorse running back and we haven't been able to work him," Koetter said. "I mean, I think Steven is one of those guys that gets better the more he touches it.

"We're not running it successfully enough to get him enough carries. If he's carrying in multiple times, he's going to need to come out and then that's going to lead to [Rodgers] and Jason getting more carries, too. But unfortunately, because we're not doing anything successfully right now and we're getting behind on the scoreboard, [the running game] sometimes gets away from us."

Fantasy Impact:

The Falcons' running game is in the toilet. They haven't cracked 80 yards rushing since Week 3 and the Bucs are 5th in the league against the run. This doesn't add up to much heading into Week 11.

Falcons RB Jason Snelling is back at practice today.

Fantasy Impact:

He's back from a concussion and with Steve Jackson looking like he could be out again, Snelling would split work with Jacquizz Rodgers. Also, with Julio Jones out, and possibly Roddy White, too, the Falcons may run the ball a bit more.

Falcons RB Steven Jackson still an observer at practice Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact:

The Falcons are coming off a bye week so it's an early practice. Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling would again split up the workload this week if Jackson has to sit out. And with no Julio Jones and possible no Roddy White, they both could get a bump in touches.

No update from Falcons HC Mike Smith Monday on whether RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) will practice this week.

Fantasy Impact:

Based on that, it doesn't look good for Jackson to play this week which means more work for Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling. This week, the Falcons host the Bucs and are coming off a bye week.
