Falcons | Steven Jackson to play? (Thu Aug 28, 04:58 PM) - Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) could play a few snaps tonight to test out his injured hamstring, according to's Vaughn McClure.

Our View: The Falcons probably want to get him a few snaps to warm up for the season. We've got Jackson as a RB3 right now, though he has upside. We're concerned with his offense line in the wake of the injury to Sam Baker, as they lack a legitimate right tackle and of course, age is a concern with Jackson. He's got some fuel left in the tank, but not enough to risk a really high pick on.

Falcons | Steven Jackson could play (Mon Aug 25, 04:21 PM) - Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) could receive some playing time in the final preseason game, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Our View: Jackson could play, but how effective can he be? His best days are far behind him, and fantasy owners need to look at rookie Devonta Freeman. We could see Freeman take over in the backfield at some point this season if Jackson gets banged up (again) or just doesn't look good. Jackson is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Falcons | Steven Jackson practicing (Mon Aug 25, 03:06 PM) - Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) is participating in practice Monday, Aug. 25.

Our View: Jackson is near the end of his career. Fantasy owners should not be relying on him to contribute much this year. The Falcons defense is terrible, so the offense will have to play in many a shootout. We're expecting rookie RB Devonta Freeman to break out at some point this season.

Falcons | Steven Jackson remains out (Thu Aug 21, 11:43 AM) - Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) is not participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 21.

Our View: Jackson had been able to stay healthy until he missed a single game last year. At 31, you start to be a bit concerned about bumps and bruises on a back, as they tend to linger. Reports are that he should be practicing again shortly and is on track for Week 1, so we don't expect him to drop below the low-end RB3 he's currently rated at.
