Jackson caught a touchdown against the Dolphins, but saw just three targets and had just 28 yards receiving. He's unlikely to have much more success this weekend against the Falcons and their excellent outside cornerbacks, Desmond Trufants and Robert Alford. The Falcons have limited opposing wide receivers all season, and Jackson is more of a low-end WR3 here.

Knowing that the Falcons have struggled a bit with speedy wide receivers obviously gives Jackson some additional attention in fantasy lineups, though it hurts that Fitzpatrick is still under center. On attempts over 20 yards this season, he's completed just 6-of-16 passes with one touchdown and two interceptions. He doesn't have the arm strength to let Jackson run under it, leading me to think of him as a WR3 who has limited upside.

Jackson does not have much deep threat ability with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick behind center, he will be a boom / bust WR3 against the Falcons sixth ranked fantasy receiver defense.
