Steven Jackson injury update: Fantasy status not in question Sunday

Dilip Vishwanat

Steven Jackson is fully healthy, and expected to play Sunday when the Rams take on the Bills. We break down the fantasy implications.

Steven Jackson is expected to play for the St. Louis Rams when they take on the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Jackson was held out practice Wednesday as a precaution, and was able to practice fully Thursday and Friday despite being listed on the Rams' injury report with a foot injury.

Jackson is not expected to be limited against the Bills, and has been putting up solid numbers as of late. He had 117 total yards against the San Francisco 49ers last week, and 139 against the Arizona Cardinals the week before.

Fantasy Impact: Both of those teams rank among the Top 6 in the league in total defense, so it's safe to say that Jackson is playing well. Though the Bills' run defense has been on the rise, there's no reason Jackson can't be a decent RB2 in standard formats. A late season game in Buffalo means there's a good chance the passing games bog down due to weather. If that's the case, Jackson is sure to see plenty of touches.
