Stephen Jackson is questionable. We break down the fantasy implications.

Stephen Jackson (groin) missed practice all week and he is listed as questionable for the game against the Bears.

Analysis: The word on the street is that he's expected to play, but he'll be a game-time decision. The good news is that the Rams play the early game on Sunday, so fantasy owners should be able to have solid contingency plans for when the status is revealed around 11:30 EDT. Jeff Fisher conceded that Daryl Richardson is going to be the featured back and he's really a must-own asset until Jackson proves he can stay healthy. The Bears D should keep the Rams in check and Richardson isn't really that talented, but he'd still be a strong play should Jackson sit this one out. Stay tuned.
