Jackson averaged a season-best 5.1 yards per carry and looked fresher than he had in weeks. It helped that Atlanta was coming off its bye.
Jackson will try to keep it going Week 11 at Carolina.

Plus, at 1-7, they're just kind of a pushover, so if the Falcons jump out to an early lead, as happened in their earlier meeting in Week 3, they'll presumably spend much of the game running out the clock.
Problem is Jackson may not be the one to do it. The Falcons have four running backs who they actually use, remember, so chances are if they do jump out to an early lead and do choose to run out the clock thereafter, much of that task would fall to Jacquizz Rodgers, Devonta Freeman and even Antone Smith.
As a plodding runner in a crowded backfield of a pass-first team, Jackson's upside is probably too limited to make him a top-15 running back any week. He may have a better chance of scoring a touchdown this week in most, but since his value depends on it, he's still a risky play in Fantasy.
