Atlanta Falcons running back Steven Jackson rushed 15 times for 71 yards in the team's Week 14 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Jackson was held out of the end zone although he did get the bulk of the carries by far.

Jacquizz Rodgers got seven carries and rushed for 14 yards, but he did get four targets in the passing game and finished with three receptions for 33 yards. Since his return, Jackson has worked himself back into form and is averaging around 73 yards per game in the past three games with three touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: The Falcons are finding a run game and Jackson is finding a bit of a groove. Still, the Packers defense is giving up the 12th most fantasy points to running backs. Jackson is looking like a solid option but that offensive line is suspect. The Falcons will face the Washington Redskins in Week 15. They are giving up the fourth most fantasy points to running backs.
