News: Jackson had a season-low 22 yards on eight carries in a 29-7 loss to Baltimore on Sunday. Impact: Atlanta's veteran back was facing one of the better run defenses, but he's proved far too unreliable to warrant any starts, other than in desperate times. Jackson has 285 yards on 77 carries this season and has topped 50 just twice. His output has decreased in each of the last four weeks, and he has a combined 47 yards the last two. It might be getting close to the end of the line for the the 20th-leading rusher in NFL history.(STATS, 4:50pm)

News: Jackson had eight carries for 22 yards and caught the lone pass thrown his way for three yards in Sunday's 29-7 loss at Baltimore. Impact: The entire Falcons' offense struggled, and they trailed 17-0 at halftime, limiting Jackson's opportunities in the running game. He once again led the team in rushing attempts, although the presence of rookie Devonta Freeman, speedster Antone Smith and reliable Jacquizz Rodgers limits Jackson's upside on a week-to-week basis.(RotoWire, )

News: Jackson was horrendous Sunday. Impact: Jackson carried six times for 25 yards and did not catch a pass. He is clearly past his fantasy prime.(STATS, 2:50pm)

News: Jackson had six carries for 25 yards in Sunday's loss to Chicago. He also had two targets as a pass catcher, but did not record a reception. Impact: Atlanta didn't have the ball much Sunday, so Jackson's opportunities were limited. Meanwhile, Antone Smith made another big play, scoring on a 41-yard touchdown in the third quarter. The Falcons seem content to give Jackson most of the work in the backfield, but that could change if the offense continues to struggle, not that he's necessarily the cause of their issues though.(RotoWire, )
