IND RB Deon Jackson - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Deon Jackson has had his moments this year, including catching 10 balls back in October against the Jaguars. Still, he looks like he’s in a timeshare with Zack Moss after last week, making him a risky option to bank on in the fantasy playoffs. If Jackson can get the work, the matchup isn’t terrible. The Chargers rank 19th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Still, if you have a more reliable option, it might be best to take a look at this Colts offense without Jonathan Taylor for a week before counting on Jackson. We have him ranked as a low-end flex option at best.

IND RB Deon Jackson - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Las Vegas Raiders

Deon Jackson struggled along with the rest of the offense last week against the Patriots, rushing for just 23 yards on 11 carries. He added 13 yards on a pair of receptions, but it was an overall dismal showing for all the Colts in a 26-3 drubbing.

Jackson should rebound this week in an easier matchup. The Raiders rank 25th in aFPA to opposing running backs and just gave up a pair of touchdowns to Travis Etienne. Watch the inactives report to make sure Jonathan Taylor is still out, but if Jackson gets the start, he should return to RB2 numbers in a much better matchup.

Update: Jackson is out today, so be sure to get him out of lineups.

IND RB Deon Jackson - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at New England Patriots

Deon Jackson is in line to start again this week after putting up RB1 numbers when he started earlier this season. Jackson's production in the passing game set him apart, and without Nyheim Hines on the roster anymore, there's no reason to expect his role to diminish as a receiver. Jackson has a tough matchup against the league's top-ranked defense in aFPA to opposing running backs, but workload should still allow him to flirt with RB2 numbers. Start him against the Patriots, especially with so many teams on bye this week.

IND RB Deon Jackson - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Tennessee Titans

Deon Jackson had a great game last week against the Jaguars, rushing for 42 yards and a touchdown and adding 79 yards on 10 receptions. Unfortunately, he hurt his quad in the game and Jonathan Taylor is set to return this week. Keep Jackson rostered, however, as he’s shown he can produce in this offense. If Taylor is a late-scratch and Jackson’s quad turns out to be okay, he’ll be a must-start, even against a tough Titans run defense. If Taylor is active, sit Jackson.

IND RB Deon Jackson - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Deon Jackson had 91 yards on 13 carries and four receptions last week against the Broncos, splitting time with Philip Lindsay in the Colts backfield while Jonathan Taylor was out with an ankle injury. He was on the field for 20% more of the offensive snaps than Lindsay was, however, and averaged a full 1.2 yards per carry more. Jackson should be the primary beneficiary if Taylor misses another week, but he’s still too risky to start in a timeshare unless you’re desperate.

Update: With Taylor officially out ad Jackson expected to get the bulk of the work, we have him ranked as a fringe RB2 option and he should be viable as an option for needy fantasy managers.

IND RB Deon Jackson - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Denver Broncos

Deon Jackson may get some added work this week with Jonathan Taylor dealing with an ankle injury. Unfortunately, against a formidable Denver run defense – 11th in aFPA to opposing running backs – and with a questionable workload, Jackson is too risky to start. Add him to deeper rosters, just in case, but this could just as easily be a game where Philip Lindsay gets touches, or maybe the team just throws the ball. Start someone with less question marks for now.
