Jacquizz Rodgers RB ATL 2 Months

Rodgers had nine carries for 44 yards and caught 3-of-7 targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 34-3 loss to the Panthers.

Rodgers nearly scored on a meaningless 17-yard run to end the game, but was otherwise quiet, along with the entire Falcons' offense. While Steven Jackson is getting up there in age, Atlanta's backfield is still crowded heading into the 2015 season, as one would assume that rookie Devonta Freeman would see a bigger role.

With Steven Jackson (quadriceps, questionable) expected to miss Sunday's game against Carolina, Rodgers is expected to start at running back, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

Rodgers figures to lose a lot of snaps to Devonta Freeman, especially in clear running situations, but Rodgers' experience advantage and advanced skill as a pass catcher could make him Atlanta's preferred plug-and-play option. Since Freeman is a strong bet to steal short-yardage and red-zone carries, Rodgers' primary appeal is in PPR.

Rodgers had a team-high 11 carries for 29 rushing yards and one catch on two targets for three receiving yards during Sunday's win over the Saints.

Starting running back Steven Jackson suffered a quad injury in the second quarter and was unable to return, paving the way for Rodgers' increased workload. However, backup Devonta Freeman actually led the team in rushing yards thanks a 31-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. The severity of Jackson's injury is still to be determined, but if he is unable to play in Week 17 against the Panthers, Rodgers could get the start, though Freeman figures to play a role as well.

Rodgers gained 20 yards on three carries, adding one reception for 14 yards on three targets, in Monday's 43-37 loss to the Packers.

Steven Jackson had a 16-50-1 rushing line and 2-26-0 receiving line, while Devonta Freeman had just eight yards on four touches (two receptions). Jackson's still the clear leader of the pack, and Freeman has also been getting more touches than Rodgers in recent weeks.

Rodgers caught three balls for 18 yards in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Rodgers also tallied seven yards on four carries. Although Antone Smith's broken leg means there is one less tailback to compete with, Rodgers is clearly behind Steven Jackson and Devonta Freeman on the depth chart. Rodgers did catch more balls than the other two combined, so his limited value is skewed towards PPR leagues.

Rodgers caught three balls for 8 yards in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Rodgers also rushed twice for four yards. The Panthers did a good job bottling up the Falcons' rushing attack, limiting Atlanta to 86 yards on 27 carries. Rodgers and his teammates have a better matchup Week12 against the Browns, who rank 31st in run defense.

Rodgers caught three balls for 28 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Rodgers was the most effective running back out of the backfield as a pass catcher, but he only added one rush for two yards on the ground. Antone Smith suffered a neck injury and was removed from the game, so there's a possibility Rodgers could see a few more touches if Smith missed time, but Steven Jackson will continue to get the lion's share of handoffs. Jackson ran for 60 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries against the Lions.

Rodgers rushed twice for nine yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

He also caught one ball for three yards. The Falcons struggled to get the offense going all day, failing to get on the scoreboard until midway though the fourth quarter. Steven Jackson, Devonta Freeman and Antone Smith all registered more touches than Rodgers, which will certainly make it difficult for Rodgers to have much fantasy value.

Rodgers rushed once for seven yards in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

Rodgers also caught one ball for two yards, but it's clear that the Falcons are more content rolling with Antone Smith as the pass-catching back out of the backfield, as he scored on a reception for the third time in as many games. Smith's ability to produce with limited touches doesn't bode well for Rodgers, who now appears to be third in line for touches.

Rodgers only tallied 15 total yards in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Rodgers gained 10 yards on the ground on two carries and caught one ball for five yards. Rodgers was on the field for 19 snaps, which was more than Devonta Freeman (16) and Antone Smith (11), but Freeman averaged 9.5 yards per carry on four touches, and Smith caught three balls for 83 yards and a touchdown, so they both had a better game than Rodgers.
