Steven Jackson hurt his hamstring. We break down the fantasy implications.
Steven Jackson was missing from the second half of Sunday's game due to a hamstring injury and not due to the reported benching, according to Jason LaCanfora. The benching report was based around Steven Jackson spiking the ball at the goal line and receiving an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Jackson's day ended with nine carries for 58 yards.
Analysis: Daryl Richardson looked OK today with 15 carries for 83 yards and two catches for 19 yards. Although, he had a huge fumble in this game that could have led to a loss. The other big story here is that Isaiah Pead's value as a handcuff was just crippled and he can probably be let loose. Fantasy owners will want to keep an eye on this, but given S-Jax's injury history, Richardson will be a target on the waiver wire.
