News: Rodgers tallied 23 yards on five carries in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Impact: Not including three scrambles by Matt Ryan, the Falcons only called 16 run plays compared to 44 pass plays. Last year the Falcons were the only team above a 2:1 pass-to-run ratio, and Sunday's numbers show that they're still a pass-first team. That said, both Rodgers and Steven Jackson averaged over four YPC in limited work. They should have a bigger impact against the Buccaneers on a short week.(RotoWire, )

News: Rodgers had six carries for 34 yards with a touchdown and caught one pass for one yard in Sunday's overtime win against New Orleans. Impact: Rodgers had a nice 17-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter that temporarily gave Atlanta the lead. Surprisingly, he wasn't a factor in the passing game, as Antone Smith scored on a 54-yard touchdown catch, while rookie Devonta Freeman grabbed two passes for 18 yards. Meanwhile, starter Steven Jackson (hamstring) looked solid, rushing for 52 yards on 12 carries. It appears as though Atlanta's top four running backs will all contribute, making the entire group a risky play, other than Jackson, who is likely to see the most volume.(RotoWire, )
