Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 11: Steven Jackson is bad start

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Steven Jackson is no longer a stud these days and gets to face the Bucs on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Only the Houston Texans have a longer losing streak than the Atlanta Falcons’ three-game skid. Atlanta''s offense has been a shell of itself, which comes as a surprise as one of the league’s best in 2012.

Of course, that has a lot to do with the loss of superstar receiver Julio Jones, but he Falcons run game has been a disaster. They have a weak offensive line and it shows with their team average of 3.5 yards per carry. They also rank dead last in rushing yards per game at 64.3.

Is that because Steven Jackson has missed time? Possibly, but S-Jax was horrible on Sunday against the Seahawks with 11 rushing yards on nine carries. On the bright side, he’s caught three balls in each of his last three games since returning to injury.

Fantasy impact: He’ll have to contribute in the passing game again. The  Bucs stout front seven should overmatch the Falcons’ O line, so it’s going to be tough to start him. He’s more of a low-upside RB2 this week and might not be a great buy-low candidate.
