Steven Jackson expects his catches to increase

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

Falcons RB Steven Jackson on his role in the offense: "I will get the bulk of my carries in the second half. In the first half, I would imagine the majority of my touches will be receiving the ball. I can focus on my becoming the back everyone saw early in my career. As things In St. Louis went downhill, I was an in-between-the-tackles runner. I wasn't working on the things in my toolbox. I took pride in my receiving. It was taken away from me, and used only in a diminished role. Now I can get back to being a big part of the passing game."

Fantasy Impact: 

Jackson only caught 38 passes last season, but that number figures to increase this year as Jackson becomes more involved in the passing game. He'll be a fringe RB1 if he can stay healthy.
