Steven Jackson missed practice with an illness: Fantasy Implications

USA TODAY Sports

St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson (illness) did not participate on Wednesday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson did not participate in Wednesday's practice session, via Rams on Twitter. The team held Jackson out of practice, listing him with an illness.

Like many marquee players on their respective teams, Jackson has been limited in practice sessions. The team has been careful with him, though it has not caused him to miss significant time.

Fantasy Analysis: Steven Jackson should be ready to go this Sunday when the Rams take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It will be a tough match-up for the Rams back as he'll be faced with the league's No. 1-ranked run defense.

However, a good amount of the team's offensive production goes through Jackson. Consider him a low-end, but starting flex option in Week 16.
