Summary

Running Back Rank: #22All Players: #46
Jackson had his eighth straight 1,000-yard season. He started the season a little slow, splitting some work with rookie Daryl Richardson, but got much of the work late in the year and carried the offense at times. Jackson had 80-plus total yards seven of the last eight games. He proved he still has something left in the tank and can carry a heavy load at running back. Jackson will be 30 years old when the season starts and has 2,395 carries under his belt. You have to wonder if he can continue to play at this current pace. He has to slow down sooner or later, right? He might be best suited for more of a time share at this stage of his career but should get most of the work at running back for his new team this season, the Falcons. He'll be the go-to back in the Falcons high-powered offense. Jackson is the complete package at running back. He has enough speed to break a play to the outside but also isn't afraid to run over a would-be tackler. Jackson is as big as some linebackers, making him a scary proposition for defenses. He does lack a little big-play ability, though, because he isn't as fast as he used to be.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Jackson produced just fine last year but wasn't a great fantasy play, scoring just four touchdowns. He hasn't found the end zone on a regular basis the last few seasons, scoring 20 touchdowns the last four years, but that should change this season in a much better offense. Consider him a low-end No. 1 or top No. 2 back, mainly because of his huge total yardage potential. He can have another 1,000-yard season with the Falcons and score double-digit touchdowns, producing some of the better numbers of his career.

comments about Steven Jackson

Notes

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith is optimistic that RB Steven Jackson will bounce back from a disappointing 2013 season in which he played in only 12 games due to a hamstring injury and averaged a career-low 3.5 yards per carry. Jackson finished the year with six touchdowns in the final six games, however. Atlanta uses a committee at running back with Jackson and RBs Jacquizz Rodgers and Antone Smith.
Fantasy Impact: We aren't so sure. Jackson just can't stay healthy these days, which is a concern.

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson was fined $7,875 for a facemask penalty in Week 15.

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (toe) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Fantasy Impact: He should be fine for Week 11 but isn't much of a fantasy option right now.

Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter wants to lean upon RB Steven Jackson more than he has since the running back returned from injury. 'My opinion is Steven Jackson is a workhorse running back and we haven't been able to work him,' Koetter said Tuesday, Nov. 12. 'I mean, I think Steven is one of those guys that gets better the more he touches it.' Jackson's season-high for carries is 13 against the Carolina Panthers.
Fantasy Impact: You have to wonder if this is a good idea with Jackson struggling with his chances. He has clearly lost a step.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White, who returned this week from ankle and hamstring injuries, had just one catch for 20 yards in a 33-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, Nov. 10. His teammate, RB Steven Jackson, managed only 11 yards on nine carries in the defeat.
Fantasy Impact: Jackson is having an awful season. He had a great matchup this week but still couldn't get it done. We wouldn't expect a big turnaround in the near future.

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson must average 107.5 yards rushing over the last eight games to extend his streak of 1,000-yard seasons to eight in a row. He has just 140 yards in four games this season, having missed four others with an injury.
Fantasy Impact: We don't see this happening.

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 25, and is probable for Week 8.
Fantasy Impact: Jackson is going to return this week and isn't a bad fantasy play in his first game back.
