Handful of Falcons chip in during loss to Steelers
by Marty Gitlin |

Featured back Steven Jackson was the most procuctive on a short list of minor contributors for the Falcons against Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Jackson finished with just 46 yards on 11 carries and added one catch for 11 yards.

Also chipping in was running back Devonta Freeman, who managed 21 yards on four attempts and nine yards on one reception. Fellow back Jacquizz Rodgers added three yards on two carries and 12 yards on one catch while tight end Levine Toilolo caught a pass for four yards.

Long one the difference for Steven Jackson
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Falcons running back Steven Jackson did something his Fantasy owners probably never thought they'd see him do again Week 13 against Arizona. He ran for more than 100 yards, picking up 101 on 18 carries.

Of course, more than half of them came on a single carry -- a 55-yard run early in the first quarter. He averaged just 2.7 yards on his other 17 carries. He had previously contributed only one run of even 20 yards this season.

The better news for Jackson than the 101 yards was the 18 carries, which equaled a season high. When the Falcons have a lead, as was the case for most of Week 13, they're not opposed to having him chew up clock.

Of course, what he actually does in that role may not be so appealing to Fantasy owners, and the Falcons don't often find themselves leading a game from start to finish. They'll more likely have to play catchup Week 14 at Green Bay, so you'll want to leave Jackson on your bench.

Falcons' Steven Jackson turns in strong game Week 13
by Chris Cwik |

Falcons running back Steven Jackson turned in a strong game Week 13 against the Cardinals.

Jackson was a force on the ground, grinding out 101 yards on 18 carries. He averaged 5.6 yards per attempt. Jackson was not involved in the passing game, however. Jackson did have two carries within the 10 yard line, but did not find the end zone. He got the team down to the 3 yard line, but they attempted to pass their way in from there. 

Jackson will look for more Week 14 against the Packers.
