Quick fantasy outlook: Steven Jackson arrived in Atlanta via free agency on March 14, 2013, signing a three-year contract with the Falcons. He's had eight straight 1,000+ yards-rushing seasons (nine years in the league), and will be 30 on July 22nd, 2013. He's accumulated 2,397/10,144/56 rushing (4.2 yards per carry) during his career, with 406/3,316/8 receiving to date. During his final season in St. Louis, Jackson posted 257/1,042/4 rushing and 38/321/0 receiving to finish as the 17th-ranked fantasy running back in the league. He's been a top-20 fantasy back for the last eight years, but has a high of six total TDs per season over the past three campaigns (part of the lack of TDs has been due to the Rams' offensive woes, however). This year, Jackson will play on a much more powerful offense in Atlanta compared to the mediocre-to-sub-par St. Louis attacks he's been a part of since Sam Bradford has faltered in his development at quarterback for the Rams. The Falcons, who lost in the NFC championship round last year, are in a win-now mode and figure to feature Jackson heavily as the upgrade over Michael Turner at starting running back this year. Jackson has the skills to be a three-down back and should be on the sidelines only when he needs a 'breather' during games, or when the Falcons field a special offensive package.
