Steven Jackson runs one in Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Falcons running back Steven Jackson managed to run in a score Thursday against the Falcons.

Jackson didn't get a ton of work, as the Falcons took a commanding lead early. He ran the ball 14 times for 54 yards. He scored his only touchdown in the third quarter. With the team already up 49-0, Jackson managed to pick up a 2 yard score. The run was impressive, as Jackson broke two or three tackles on the play. The team then went to other backs, opting to keep Jackson fresh.

Jackson will take on the Vikings Week 4.

Steven Jackson a strong Week 3 option
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

There probably aren't going to be many weeks where we recommend Steven Jackson as a starter, but this is a safe spot to trust him.

It's a short week, which means a tired defense, and the Bucs just had to deal with 25 carries from the Rams. Jackson has actually run well through two games against New Orleans and Cincinnati and is averaging 4.2 yards per carry, but his workload has been minimal with just 23 total carries.

He will lose playing time to Jacquizz Rodgers, Devonta Freeman and Antone Smith, but Jackson should have the best chance to score. It helps Jackson's cause that Tampa Bay could be without three starting defensive linemen with Adrian Clayborn (biceps), Gerald McCoy (hand) and Michael Johnson (ankle) all banged up.

Steven Jackson finds carries hard to come by
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

For the second straight game, running back Steven Jackson established himself as far and away the Falcons' preferred rusher Week 2 at Cincinnati, leading the team with 11 carries.

But it was only 11 carries. Even though he did pretty well with those 11 carries, having five of 5 yards or more, it amounted to only 46 yards. He also had one catch for 7 yards.

Quarterback Matt Ryan was the team's second leading rusher with 28 yards on three carries. Jacquizz Rodgers was the only other player to run the ball, picking up 23 yards on five carries.

Though the Falcons were trailing by multiple scores in the second half, necessitating the pass, Jackson's carries were distributed almost evenly between the two halves. In 14 games as a Falcon, he has only once carried the ball 20 times.

The Falcons won't have as much time to game plan in Week 3 with the Buccaneers coming to town Thursday night, which could work to Jackson's advantage. He'll likely still lose some carries to Rodgers, though.

Steven Jackson decent, but shares carries
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though 31 and coming off a career-worst season in which he was limited by injury, Falcons running back Steven Jackson showed he still has something left in the tank Week 1 against the Saints, punishing defenders with his especially physical style of running en route to 52 yards on 12 carries.

The problem was it was only 12 carries. Meanwhile, Jacquizz Rodgers had six for 34 yards, including the Falcons' lone rushing touchdown, Devonta Freeman had two for 15 yards, and Antone Smith had two for 7 yards.

Jackson was also the least effective of the four in the passing game. Though he was targeted three times, he caught only one pass for no gain.

He'll try to break free of the tandem and find the end zone Week 2 at the Bengals, who gave up a rushing touchdown to the Ravens' Justin Forsett in Week 1.

Steven Jackson ready to go for Week 1
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Falcons running back Steven Jackson, who missed most of training camp nursing a hamstring problem, says he's amped up to face the Saints on Sunday.

"I'm extremely excited for Week 1," he told the team's website. "It's been a training camp that I missed the majority of the time, but I've been working hard physically and mentally to prepare for this coming Sunday. I feel good about it."
