Jacquizz Rodgers rushed seven times for 14 yards and caught three passes for 33 yards in the Falcons' Week 14 loss to Green Bay.

Change-of-pace back Rodgers had a few more touches than usual because Antone Smith departed with a knee injury. Quizz is a Steven Jackson handcuff only as it pertains to fantasy football Weeks 15 and 16.

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed three times for seven yards in Atlanta's Week 12 loss to the Saints, adding two catches for 31 yards.

Rodgers was a pure change-of-pace option, getting out-touched 19-5 by Steven Jackson. He also ceded some passing downs to Jason Snelling, further diluting he's already faded FLEX value. If you're still trotting 'Quizz out in a 14-team league, it's long past time to move on.

Jacquizz Rodgers (ankle) is listed as probable for Thursday night's Week 12 game against the Saints.

Rodgers was upgraded to full participation on Wednesday after being limited Monday and Tuesday. He'll be all systems go but isn't even a flex option.

Jacquizz Rodgers (ankle) remained limited in Tuesday's practice.

Rodgers' injury isn't believed to be more than a minor tweak, so he should be active for Thursday's game against the Saints. His status will be updated on Wednesday. Averaging just 7.5 touches for 41 yards from scrimmage over his past four games, Rodgers is little more than a desperation FLEX option.

Jacquizz Rodgers (ankle) was limited in Monday's practice.

We didn't notice Rodgers suffer any injuries on Sunday, but he did sit and watch Antone Smith and the backup offense for much of the fourth quarter with the Falcons getting blown out. Rodgers should be fine, but he could lose reps to Smith.

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed six times for 22 yards and caught an eight-yard pass in the Falcons' Week 11 loss to Tampa Bay.

Rodgers got seven touches, and then took a seat to watch third-string RB Antone Smith break off gains of 50 and 33 in garbage time. (Jason Snelling was inactive.) Rodgers is playing a similar snap count to Steven Jackson, but isn't being featured in terms of touches. He's just a handcuff in fantasy leagues.

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed two times for eight yards and caught two passes for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 8 loss at Arizona.

Over the previous five games, Rodgers averaged 16.4 touches per game. But with Steven Jackson (hamstring) finally back, Quizz was reduced to a change-of-pace man at best. It proved to be a major error as S-Jax had literally nothing to give, but the Falcons aren't going to sit their veteran down. Rodgers remains a hold because of Jackson's performance and injury concerns, but he won't be startable at Carolina in Week 9.

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for 16 yards on eight carries in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bucs, adding eight catches for 46 yards and two touchdowns.

Rodgers started and was used in a committee with Jason Snelling. He was featured in the passing game with Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) sidelined and finished with a team-high nine targets. Both of Rodgers touchdowns came in the red-zone on check downs from Matt Ryan. With Steven Jackson still out indefinitely, continue to view Rodgers as an RB3/FLEX option for next week's game against the Cardinals.
