2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Steven Jackson is one of the tougher players to project for 2014. Muddying analysis of his seeming decline is the fact that he was hurt and playing behind a less-than-stellar offensive line in 2013. Atlanta's willingness to forge ahead with Jackson atop the depth chart despite plenty of wear and a possible breakdown means Atlanta's brass either likes the team's depth at the position or feels Jackson has something left in the gas tank. For now, fantasy owners should expect Jackson to be fine to open the season and maintain his role as the primary running back on first and second downs. Jacquizz Rodgers has shown enough ability to get regular touches, but head coach Mike Smith has never displayed much of a desire to let him shoulder the load on a consistent basis. With Jackson's playing time relatively safe barring injury, he should average roughly 15 touches per contest on the ground and through the air. Remembering that Jackson failed to reach pay dirt until week 12 last season, fantasy owners may let him slip in drafts a little further than he should, but that may not be wise. He is a tad bit safer in PPR leagues, but remains an RB3 with slight upside in standard formats.

Comment: Jackson injured his hamstring early in camp. His age (31) and a pass-first offense is holding his fantasy value down.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Steven Jackson to play in preseason finale
Falcons RB looks to put hamstring injury behind him
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 28, 5:40 pm

Atlanta Falcons
RB Steven Jackson is suited up and in uniform. Looks like he's playing (in the preseason finale versus Jacksonville). (Jay Adams on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It is highly doubtful the 31-year-old will see more than a handful of snaps and is probably just trying to do what he can to put his mind at ease for the season opener against New Orleans next Sunday. His age and history of soft-tissue injuries are the primary reasons why he has slipped into the middle rounds in most fantasy drafts, but he has high-end RB2 potential in what should be an explosive offense again in Atlanta.


Injury Steven Jackson back at practice Monday
Missed 27 days with hamstring injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 25, 4:10 pm

Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons got some great news from Steven Jackson as he returned to practice on Monday. His return now puts him on track to be in the game September 7th, which is good news for those worried about the team's short-yardage struggles. What is less clear is whether he'll be ready for a full workload in that game, but the Falcons have suggested all along they anticipated he'd be back in action against the Saints. (Yahoo)

FFToday's Take: Keep this recovery time in mind for Jackson, who was a top-15 back over the final five weeks of last season. At his mid-seventh (standard) and mid-eighth (PPR) round ADP, Jackson stands a great chance to be a mid-round steal for fantasy owners if he can stay healthy. That's a big if for a player with a long list of soft-tissue injuries, however. Regardless, he will be worthy of flex consideration at the very least when he sees the field this fall.
