Fantasy Analysis | 1413829832
It's only getting worse for Steven Jackson
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

When Falcons running back Steven Jackson averaged 47.6 rushing yards in his first five games, it was bad. His Fantasy owners were by and large displeased.

So now that he's averaged 23.5 rushing yards in his last three games, where does that leave him? After the disappointment that was his 2013 season, how could he possibly redeem himself in Fantasy?

How indeed. It's one of those questions that doesn't need to be answered because you already know the answer. The Falcons' offensive line is in tatters. Their defense was never good to begin with. They're falling behind and struggling to keep up. The need for a volume running back -- the kind that eats up clock with a consistent 3 to 4 yards -- has dwindled to almost nothing.

It's not like Jackson has become less effective. The Falcons just aren't giving him the ball as much. He's gotten fewer than 10 carries in each of last two games after averaging 12.6 over his first five. And with Jacquizz Rodgers, Devonta Freeman and Antone Smith all better at catching the ball out of the backfield, that may not change.

You shouldn't plan on starting Jackson anytime soon, and you wouldn't be wrong to rid yourself of him altogether.

Falcons don't get much production from RBs in Week 7 loss
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Falcons didn't get a lot of production from their running backs during a 29-7 loss Week 7 at Baltimore.

Starter Steven Jackson led the way with 22 rushing yards on eight carries. Devonta Freeman was second with 20 rushing yards on two carries, Antone Smith was third on the team with 10 rushing yards on three carries and Jacquizz Rodgers added 9 rushing yards on two carries.

Freeman was the most-active running back in the passing game, totaling five catches for 17 yards. Jackson and Rodgers each had one catch for 3 yards, while Smith had two catches for minus-1 yard.

The Falcons are back in action Week 8 vs. Detroit.

Steven Jackson unlikely to succeed in tough matchup
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Falcons running back Steven Jackson is likely to see a larger role in the offense moving forward than he did in Week 6 when he logged a season-low six touches. However, that doesn't mean he is likely find success in Week 7, with a tough matchup against the Ravens on the way.

Jackson has topped double figures in Fantasy scoring just twice in six games, and seems unlikely to turn that trend around Sunday. The Ravens have allowed just two running backs to reach double figures this season, with none doing so over the last three games.

Jackson's value relies mostly on his ability to get into the end zone, and the Ravens have held running backs out of there in five of six games so far this season. He might sneak in a goal-line carry, but Jackson simply cannot be relied upon in most Fantasy formats for Week 7.

Steven Jackson leads limited Falcons rushing attack in Week 6
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Falcons running back Steven Jackson rushed for 25 yards on just six carries in his team's 27-13 loss to the Bears in Week 6.

Despite the Falcons keeping the game close until the middle of the fourth quarter, the offense more or less ignored the rushing attack, with Jackson's three running mates combining for 17 yards on five carries throughout the game. Jackson had managed at least 12 touches and 50 yards in each of his first five games before seeing a limited workload against the Bears. He'll look to get on track in Week 7 against the Dolphins.

Steven Jackson looking to continue scoring touch
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

With touchdowns in two of his last three games, Falcons running back Steven Jackson has been a useful Fantasy option recently. However, that might not last in Week 6, with the Bears on the schedule.

Jackson has topped double figures in Fantasy scoring twice in three games, almost entirely due to his first two touchdowns of the season. That is no sure bet to continue in Week 6, as the Bears have allowed just three touchdowns to running backs on the ground this season, while holding each of their last four opponents below 100 yards.

Jackson is pretty much only useful for Fantasy purposes if he gets goal-line work at this point. In the three games he has failed to score a touchdown, he has just 14 points combined. Jackson is a worthwhile starter, but a pretty unexciting one for Week 6.
