Falcons RB Steven Jackson, WR Roddy White still not practicing

The Falcons are coming out of their bye week, but it appears the time off hasn't been quite enough time for a couple of the team's best offensive weapons. Both running back Steven Jackson @sj39 and wide receiver Roddy White @roddywhiteTV didn't take part in Tuesday's practice. Both are battling hamstring injuries, and White is also dealing with an ankle injury to boot.

Fantasy Analysis:

It's a bad sign for their odds of playing Sunday against the Buccaneers. Right now, it looks like Jacquizz Rodgers @Qui22Rodgers and Jason Snelling @JSNELZ44 will split the carries out of the backfield for another week. Snelling has recovered from his Week 6 concussion. With White still hobbled, and Julio Jones @juliojones_11 out for the year, Harry Douglas @HDouglas83 and Tony Gonzalez @TonyGonzalez88 will see a noticeable uptick in targets. Douglas should be added in 10- and 12-team leagues.
