In Thursday's contest against the Buccaneers Jacquizz Rodgers struggled offensively. Rodgers had 5 carries for 6 yards and 1 reception for 3 yards. (Source: NFL)
Fantasy Impact: Atlanta is 4 deep at the running back position. At this time I think the only Falcon backs that are worth having on your roster are Steven Jackson and Antone Smith. Jacquizz is currently a low RB3.
Jacquizz Rodgers did not have much work during Sunday's game against the Bengals. He ran the ball 5 times for 23 yards and had 0 catches.
Fantasy Impact: The Falcons were dominated all game by the Bengals. The Atlanta backfield situation is basically impossible to navigate and predict. Start Rodgers at your own peril, expecting very little, but hoping for a TD.
In Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints, Jacquizz Rodgers broke through the defense and scored on a 17 yard run. Rodgers finished the game with 34 yards on 6 carries. He was also targeted once, by Matt Ryan, for 1 yard. (Source: NFL)
Fantasy Impact: Rodgers at best might be a RB-2. He does have potential but he comes out of a high flying offense that likes to spread the ball around. All of Atlanta's backs are also pass-catchers which makes them dual threats and gives them extra value on fantasy rosters.
