2014 Outlook: Over the Hill (decreased production)Last updated on Jun-26-2014 by Rusty Reeves
NOT DONE YET: Let's try this again! Jackson enters the 2014 campaign with something to prove to Falcons fans. After tearing his hamstring in Week 2, Jackson was largely a waste of roster space the rest of the way. He finished with 543 rushing yards (a career-low) and it was his first season under 1,000 yards since his rookie year. Jackson's age (30) is the biggest concern, along with all those huge workloads over the years. To his credit though, Jackson is a student of the game and works as hard as anyone in the league; however, 30-year-old RBs aren't typically "getting better." If he can stay healthy, he could reach the 1,000 yard mark again. The Falcons addressed their offensive line issues in the offseason and their passing attack will keep defenses honest, so Jackson should have every opportunity to succeed this season. He is an RB3 for our fantasy purposes.
Editor's note: The same appeal from last season applies once again. Jackson was supposed to reinvigorate a running game recently vacated by Michael Turner. WRs Julio Jones and Roddy White draw the defense away from the box, creating more rushing lanes for SJax to plow through. There's still some potential here, especially with an ADP of 106.23.

2014 Mock Draft Results
FFToolbox Mock Draft July 21
|8.02||FFToolbox - Scott - Can't pass him up. 5 of the last 6 games, St Jax gave us RB2 numbers, so fantasy players are letting him fall too far. This pick however, plays into my next pick, which I'll take Devonta Freeman in case he goes down.|
FFToolbox Mock Draft July 14
July 14, 2014
|7.10||Draft Sharks - Not counting on 16 games for him. In fact, I'd be happy with 12. But I think he can be a top 24 PPR RB as long as he's healthy.|
