News: Jackson carried 11 times for 46 yards Sunday for the Falcons. Impact: Remember the days that Jackson was a lock for 1,000 yards? They seem like like long ago as his time has passed.(STATS, 11:13pm)

News: Jackson had 11 carries for 46 rushing yards and one catch on one target for seven receiving yards Sunday against the Bengals. Impact: The Falcons' offense really struggled Sunday and quarterback Matt Ryan was forced to throw 44 times versus the 19 total rushing attempts the team had (16 without Ryan's three). The good news for Jackson's fantasy owners is that he continues to dominate the touches out of the backfield, as Jacquizz Rodgers had only five carries and Davonte Freeman didn't even have one. Up next is a Week 3 matchup against the Bucs, who allowed 119 rushing yards to the Rams in Week 2.(RotoWire, )

News: Jackson (hamstring) had 12 carries for 52 yards in Sunday's thrilling 37-34 overtime win against New Orleans. He also had one catch on three targets for zero yards. Impact: Jackson led the team in rushing attempts and yards, but saw Jacquizz Rodgers and Antone Smith each score a touchdown. Even rookie Davonta Freeman made some key plays, touching the ball four times for 33 yards. Expect Jackson to lead the ground attack most of the time, but it looks like Atlanta's running back situation is going to be a headache for fantasy owners, as each of the top four runners bring something different to the table. On a positive note, the hamstring injury that dogged Jackson for most of the preseason didn't seem to be a hindrance Sunday.(RotoWire, )

News: Jackson (hamstring) wasn't listed on the Falcons' injury report Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of reports. Impact: Coach Mike Smith has deemed his squad "healthy," which includes Jackson and his recovered hamstring. After missing the entire preseason slate due to injury, there may be some rust evident initially, but Sunday's opponent, the Saints, ranked fifth-worst by allowing 4.6 YPC last season. Thus, there's a decent bet that the occasional seam opens for the veteran back.(RotoWire, )
