2013 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Oct-21-2013 by Matt De Lima

UPDATE (10/21): S-Jax hasn't played since Sept. 15th and yesterday, FOX's Jay Glazer reported the 30-year-old runner had suffered a setback in his return. There is no definitive timetable for his return. Jacquizz Rodgers is the back to own and Jason Snelling is also rosterable in deeper formats.

The youth movement going on with the St. Louis Rams was the writing on the wall for Steven Jackson. The 10-year vet has rushed for at least 1,000 yards in eight straight seasons. He's been surprisingly durable given his big workloads, having only missed two games over the last four seasons. Jackson will turn 30 in late July and everyone knows there might not be much tread left on his tires. Even so, the Falcons have enough playmakers on hand to spell SJax when need be. Jacquizz Rodgers figures to be a change of pace backup and it is unlikely he takes anything more than a pittance away from Jackson's production.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
2.07 Fantasytaz - Jim Day - Some are skeptical about what Jackson will do now that he has turned 30, but he has moved into the perfect position. From Week 10 on last season he was the #6 back in PPR scoring. Now he lands in a much better situation and should see increased receptions as well as more chances to score. He has every chance to finish as a top 10 back in 2013.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
2.10 Gridiron Experts - I was one of the first guys to vault Steven Jackson into my top ten, thinking that if a stiff like Michael Turner could punch in double digit TD's for the Falcons, a talented back like S-JAX should be fantasy gold. Love starting off with two top ten runners.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
2.07 DynastyLeague Football - If the Falcons can make Michael Turner a serviceable fantasy running back like they have over the last couple years Jackson should be a RB1 for 2013 while approaching a career high in touchdowns.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
2.01 KFFL - Tim - I'm more optimistic than most on S-Jax. It's a fine offense for red-zone chances -- a welcome feeling following his Rams days -- and his pass protection should keep him in on three downs. He looked fresh at the end of last year. He takes care of his body, and his rep as "injury-prone" is overstated. He has one more elite year left in him.
