Scouting report

ATL RB Steven Jackson - Week 12, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12: Jackson vs. Browns
One week after putting together his best game of the season, Steven Jackson went back to his normal 2014 production last Sunday when he rushed for just 41 yards on 17 carries in the Falcons’ win over the Panthers. Jackson continues to be Atlanta’s No. 1 back but he hasn’t rushed for more than 81 yards in a given game and has yet to carry the ball more than 18 times. He’ll once again be a touchdown-dependent start against Cleveland on Sunday and it's important to track his status leading up to kickoff because he missed practice time this week due to an illness. Jackson is our No. 18 overall RB for Week 12 and should be considered a low-end RB2.

ATL RB Steven Jackson - Week 11, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11: Jackson vs. Panthers
Steven Jackson rushed for 81 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries and also added two catches on two targets for an addition 14 yards in the Falcons’ Week 10 win over the Buccaneers. OC Dirk Koetter clearly made Jackson more of an emphasis in the game plan coming out of the bye week. The first three plays the Falcons ran offensively were run plays by Jackson, who easily had his best game of the season. Given last week’s production and the matchup this week (Carolina’s defense ranks 24th for fantasy points allowed by running backs this season), view Jackson as a low-end RB2. He’s our No. 19th overall RB for Week 11.

ATL RB Steven Jackson - Week 10, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10: Jackson vs. Bucs
Steven Jackson finished with 18 carries for 60 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons’ Week 8 loss to the Lions. Jackson isn’t doing much with his opportunities but he continues to be Atlanta’s starting running back and the clear leader of the team’s four-back committee. He’ll once again be a touchdown-dependent start on Sunday but has a nice matchup against Tampa Bay and ranks as our No. 17 overall RB for Week 10. Consider him a mid-range RB2 with six teams on bye.

ATL RB Steven Jackson - Week 8, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8: Jackson vs. Lions
Steven Jackson rushed eight times for 22 yards in the Falcons’ Week 7 loss to the Ravens while also adding one reception for three yards. For the second straight week he was held out of the end zone and if he’s not scoring touchdowns then he holds little to no fantasy value. While he continues to be the lead back in the Falcons’ four-back committee, he’s a touchdown-dependent RB with limited upside. He ranks as our 36th overall RB for Week 8 and should remain on your bench.

ATL RB Steven Jackson - Week 7, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7: Jackson vs. Ravens
Steven Jackson rushed six times for just 25 yards in the Falcons' Week 6 loss to the Bears. He remains the leader in Atlanta's four-back committee even though there's an argument to be made that he slows down the Falcons' pass-first offense. Jackson is a touchdown-dependent RB4 with limited upside. If there's an Atlanta back to own, it's Antone Smith, who has now scored in four straight games. Smith is touchdown-dependent as well because he doesn't receive enough touches, but at least he's shown the speed and explosiveness to reach the end zone on a consistent basis. Jackson is our No. 36 overall RB for Week 6.

ATL RB Steven Jackson - Week 6, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6: Jackson vs. Bears
Steven Jackson rushed 13 times for 37 yards and a touchdown while also catching five passes for 37 yards in the Falcons' Week 5 loss to the Giants. Any owner that is considering starting Jackson needs to realize that his fantasy production is tied to his ability to reach the end zone. In five weeks he has yet to rush for over 54 yards in a given game and he's averaged just 12.6 carries per contest. He is the leader of Atlanta's running back committee, but it's a committee that has four members, including the explosive Antone Smith. That said, thanks to Sunday's matchup with the Bears, Jackson is ranked as our No. 19 overall RB for Week 6. Consider him a low-end RB2 option.

ATL RB Steven Jackson - Week 5, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5: Jackson vs. Giants
Steven Jackson is nothing if not consistent these days, as he rushed for 49 yards on 13 carries in the Falcons' Week 4 loss to the Vikings. His weekly rushing production through four games: 52 yards, 46 yards, 54 yards and 49 yards. His carries have been consistent as well, as he's rushed 12 times, 11 times, 14 times and 13 times through his four games. Given OC Dirk Koetter's insistence on using all four of his backs, owners can expect this type of production from Jackson all season, making him touchdown-dependent start each week. Consider him a RB3/RB4 for Week 5 as he ranks as our No. 36 overall RB.
