Steven Jackson drawing interest from Packers, fantasy value may be on the rise

Dilip Vishwanat

Steven Jackson is receiving interest from several other teams. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Rams have heard from several teams about the possibility of trading Steven Jackson, but the Packers may be one franchise in particular with more interest than the rest. According to sources, Green Bay's general manager Ted Thompson has put together "significant packages" trying to acquire Jackson in the past.

Alex Green isn't quite cutting it in the Packers backfield, so it's no surprise they are looking into Jackson once again.

Fantasy Impact: A trade to Green Bay would boost Jackson's value, removing him from the struggling Rams offense and his timeshare with Daryl Richardson. Considering Thompson has always been interested in Jackson, the Packers would likely give him the majority of the workload in the backfield.

Green is averaging an unspectacular 2.9 yards per carry at this point. Jackson provides an immediate upgrade to a team that hasn't found a consistent runner in recent years.
