Steven Jackson sits out Thursday, fantasy value should be okay

Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports

The veteran back that just went over 10,000 career rushing yards should be good to go. We break down the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson (illness) was not at practice on Thursday.

Jackson has seen a resurgence as of late, collecting eight passes for 73 yards and 73 yards rushing on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. He has two 100-yard games and two touchdowns over his last six games, totaling 909 yards rushing and 280 yards receiving this season.

Jackson could reach 1,000 yards for the eighth straight season. He has 10,002 rushing yards and 55 touchdowns in his career, though many expect he will leave the Rams after the year as St. Louis continues a youth movement.

Fantasy Take: Jackson is playing well and the Bucs are playing bad. He's a worthy RB2 during the fantasy championships.
