Falcons RBs Rodgers, Freeman carry the load in Week 17
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) With Steven Jackson (quad) sidelined, Falcons running backs Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman shouldered the load in the running game Sunday against Carolina.
Rodgers took nine carries for a team-high 44 yards and turned seven targets into three receptions for 19 yards. Freeman carried the ball only six times for 13 yards. He also added two catches for 3 yards in a 34-3 defeat, eliminating Atlanta from playoff contention.
Falcons RB Steven Jackson (quad) not practicing Wednesday
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(12/24/14) Falcons running back Steven Jackson, who left the Week 16 win at New Orleans with a quad injury, was unable to practice Wednesday, reports ESPN.com. Atlanta is preparing to host Carolina on Sunday with the NFC South title at stake.
If Jackson can't play, Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman would share the load. Rodgers received 12 touches and Freeman got eight against the Saints.
The Falcons are favored by 4 points at Vegas sportsbooks.
You don't want Falcons RB, whoever it is
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/21/14) Though Steven Jackson's status for Week 17 against Carolina isn't known just yet, the fact his quadriceps injury almost immediately ruled him out for the second half of Week 16 at New Orleans is hardly reason for optimism. So then, Fantasy owners should be preparing for the possibility he misses the season's final week.
That is, if any who are still playing now are actually relying on him, which is unlikely. He's scored a touchdown in only one of his last four games and has run for more than 60 yards only twice all season. At this point, it's not even all that clear that the Falcons would miss him. His replacements, Jacquizz Rodgers and Devonta Freeman, were both more productive than him against the Saints, especially Freeman, who broke off a 31-yard touchdown run in the the third quarter and also had 48 receiving yards.
Of course, you'd like Freeman to be the first choice to replace Jackson, but considering Rodgers got more touches, that's far from certain. When Rodgers has gotten an increased workload in the past, he's done little with it, and he's averaging just 3.5 yards per carry again this year.
So if Jackson plays in Week 17, you probably wouldn't want to use him in Fantasy, and if he doesn't, an anticipated timeshare likely ruins whomever the Falcons choose to replace him. If you play in such a deep league that the replacement would matter regardless, Freeman is probably the best choice since he's more explosive, but it's not an exciting prospect.
Devonta Freeman, Jacquizz Rodgers fill in for Steven Jackson
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/21/14) With Steven Jackson sidelined with a quad injury, Falcons running back Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers each chipped on the ground during Sunday's 30-14 victory over the Saints in Week 16.
Freeman stepped up with a 31-yard rushing touchdown in the third quarter. He registered 84 yards of total offense, with 36 yards and a score on six carries and three receptions for 48 yards. Rodgers took 11 handoffs for 29 yards and came down with one grab for 3 yards.
Atlanta will host Carolina in Week 16.
|The Bears signed Jacquizz Rodgers to add depth to their running back corps. We're not sure why -- after four years and multiple opportunities with the Falcons, Rodgers amassed just 10 total touchdowns (five rushing, five receiving) and averaged a weak 3.7 yards per carry with just two runs over 20 yards. He was a little more effective as a receiver, landing 7.1 yards per catch with four plays over 20 yards. Expect him to battle for playing time in training camp this summer with rookie Jeremy Langford, and potentially lose the fight. We wouldn't feel good about drafting Rodgers.
