Steven Jackson injury update: Could be out three weeks, Jacquizz Rodgers a must-add in fantasy

Kevin C. Cox

Steven Jackson is out for a little while. We break down the fantasy implications.

Steven Jackson (thigh) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Dolphins. He did not practice at all since Week 2's win over the Rams.

Jackson scored on a TD and finished with just one catch and no rushing yards on three carries. He could be out three weeks and the Falcons are realizing their worst fears for their newly-acquired back.

Fortunately, they drafted a capable back last season in Jacquizz Rodgers. He picked up 11 carries on Sunday, but couldn't do much with them, finishing with 17 yards.

Fantasy impact: The Falcons are probably going to give Jason Snelling more than two carries and he could get some goal-line work. The Dolphins do have a solid run D, so the Falcons are likely gearing up to sling it. Still, Quizz serves as a nice RB2 in PPR leagues and Snelling is more of a Hail Mary.
