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 |

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."

Steven Jackson psyched for Week 1
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Falcons running back Steven Jackson may have missed the entire preseason with a hamstring injury, but that doesn't mean he isn't looking forward to taking on the Saints in the season opener Sunday.

"I'm extremely excited for Week 1," Jackson told the team's official website Tuesday. "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."

Though he was plagued last year by hamstring problems as well, Jackson managed to play both of the Falcons' games against the Saints, and they were two of his better ones. He had 77 yards on 11 carries and 45 on five catches in the first one and 63 yards on 16 carries and 16 on three catches in the second. Of course, that was without Devonta Freeman breathing down his neck. The rookie from Florida State had a strong preseason filling in for Jackson, rushing 32 times for 134 yards and catching 11 passes for 146.

Jackson is still expected to carry the load for the Falcons, yet because he's at less than 100 percent and facing some competition from within, neither Jamey Eisenberg nor Dave Richard ranks him as a top-30 running back this week even though the Saints allowed the 14th-most rushing yards per game (111.6) and the fifth-most yards per carry (4.6) last season.
