Texans' Kareem Jackson: Handling transition to safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson has improved his technique at safety as he gets more reps at the position, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Texans secondary coach Anthony Midget described Jackson as "instinctive" and "physical," qualities that will aid in his transition from defensive back to safety. "He's a guy that has played the position for us in the past when we needed to, so now he's concentrating on it and the more practice reps he gets at it, he'll just continue to get better," said the coach. Jackson recorded 73 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble in 16 games (14 starts) last season. He's entering the final year of a four-year contract and could be in line for a new contract if the position move works out.

Texans' Kareem Jackson: Moving to safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Bill O'Brien recently indicated that Jackson will permanently move to safety in 2018, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

While Jackson graded out as Pro Football Focus' top-ranked cornerback in run support last season, the 30-year-old checked in as the 111th-ranked corner in pass coverage (out of 120 qualifiers). A move to safety could be the Texans' admission that Jackson seems to have lost a step from his younger days. At the same time, playing safety is a good development for the veteran's IDP value, especially given his proficiency as a tackler.

Texans' Kareem Jackson: Snags first INT of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson recorded three solo tackles, one pass breakup and one interception Sunday against the Jaguars.

Jackson played 58 of 70 defensive snaps Sunday. The veteran corner hasn't been logging many tackles lately, with just nine in his last three games, and with a matchup against the run-happy Jags, the trend likely will continue. Jags QB Blake Bortles has thrown only one pick in his last three games, which hurts Jackson's chances of creating value in other ways.

Texans' Kareem Jackson: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (hamstring) was a full participant at Thursday's practice after sitting out Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Texans need Jackson and all hands on board defensively after losing J.J. Watt (knee) and Whitney Mercilus (pectoral) to season-ending injuries. The loss of two important disruptive forces up front will put a strain on Houston's cornerbacks, who will be asked to hold coverage longer.

Texans' Kareem Jackson: Gearing up for start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson will start at cornerback Sunday against the Titans.

With Kevin Johnson and Marcus Burley (both knee) both inactive for Sunday's game, the Texans will look to Jackson to step up. The eighth-year cornerback has played substantial defensive snaps this season, recording 20 tackles (14 solo) and a sack. Since he was a fantasy threat before being named starter, we expect serious IDP output from Jackson now that he's starting.
