Summary

Jacquizz Rodgers has spent his three year career in Atlanta filling the change-of-pace/third-down back duties, at which he is a respectable producer - so far he's accumulated 248/900/4 rushing and 126/931/4 receiving as a Falcon. Last year, serving in Steven Jackson's place for part of the season, Rodgers managed 97/333/2 rushing (career highs in carries and rushing TDs) while also snagging 52/341/2 receiving to set a career high in receiving TDs. The Falcons ranked 24th in the NFL in yards-per-carry last season, averaging 3.9 yards per carry - there is definitely room for improvement up front on the offensive line. The selection of OT Jake Matthews at 1.06 in the NFL Draft should help open up some better running lanes for Rodgers during 2014, as should the arrival of veteran offensive linemen Gabe Carimi and Jon Asamoah via free agency.

Falcons | Steven Jackson has hammy issue (Tue Jul 29, 06:16 PM) - Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) injured his hamstring Monday, July 28, which is why he wasn't practicing Tuesday, July 29. Head coach Mike Smith said Jackson will be ready for the team's first game.

Our View: Without Jackson on the practice field, guys like Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman will get more of an opportunity. We've seen what Rodgers is--decent receiver and change of pace back--but Freeman is the one to watch here. He is built low to the ground, has a powerful lower body and he's quick enough to get to the second level of the defense in the blink of an eye. See if he can take this opportunity and run with it.
