Kareem Jackson scores against his former team

Kareem Jackson had a monster performance on Sunday, recording six solo tackles, five assisted tackles, one TFL, three passes defended, one interception, and a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown, helping lead the Broncos to a 38-24 win over the Texans.

Fantasy Impact

If you had the foresight to start Jackson, your team would surely be benefitting from the highest scoring IDP from the morning games. His touchdown came on a bizarre sequence of events, as Alexander Johnson dislodged the ball from Keke Coutee, Jeremiah Attaochu picked up the loose ball, then handed it off to Jackson, who returned it 70 yards. Though he had his best game of the year, it'll be hard to trust Jackson next week against the Chiefs.

Kareem Jackson: big hit sparks team to victory

Texans defensive back Kareem Jackson recorded four tackles and two passes defensed in Sunday’s 19-17 win over the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

Jackson has been playing great for the Texans all year but it was his huge third-quarter hit on Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay that was the talk of the day. "He is killing it," defensive end J.J. Watt said. "That hit was one of the hardest hits I have seen on a football field. It was clean. It was a great hit. He has been doing that all year." Linebacker Whitney Mercilus said it was the type of hit that gives the team a spark. “You get hyped," Mercilus said. "It gives you energy, it gives you momentum. That's a trickle effect. Man, he got a big hit. I need to go get me a big play, too." Jackson will look to continue making impact plays for his team against the Redskins following the Week 10 bye.

Kareem Jackson totals nine tackles Thursday night

Texans defensive back Kareem Jackson recorded nine tackles (seven solo) and one TFL in Thursday night’s win over the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Jackson was shaken up in the first half but was able to return. He has been a key member of the secondary all season playing both cornerback and safety because of injuries. He’s also proved to be a solid starting option for his IDP fantasy owners with 47 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles, and one recovery in eight games. The Broncos are up next in Week 9.

Kareem Jackson recovers fumble in Week 7 win

Texans defensive back Kareem Jackson recorded three tackles and recovered a fumble in Sunday’s 20-7 win over the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Jackson’s fumble recovery came early in the third-quarter when linebacker Zach Cunningham chased down Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles and knocked the ball free. It led to a quick score by the Texans offense. His versatility and play-making has made a significant impact for the Texans this season. Jackson started this one at cornerback after playing safety for much of the year. He has been a cornerback his whole career but made the change to safety when Andre Hal was diagnosed with lymphoma in the Spring. But with injuries to Aaron Colvin and Kevin Johnson, and the return of Hal, Jackson found himself back in a familiar role. Houston will take on the Dolphins Thursday night.

Kareem Jackson may play both cornerback and safety

Kareem Jackson started Week 1 at safety, but moved back to cornerback in Week 2 after Kevin Johnson landed on the IR. Rookie Justin Reid drew the start at safety in Week 2. Head coach Bill O'Brien suggested he has enough confidence in cornerback Aaron Colvin to start him and move back Jackson back to safety.

Fantasy Impact

O'Brien seems to be suggesting the defensive backfield could be changed on a weekly basis. This is could start to become a mess and could be difficult for IDP owners to predict on a week to week basis.
