Steven Jackson rushed four times for eight yards in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game loss to the Broncos.
Jackson hammered home a first half score, but was otherwise stiff legged and ineffective. The Pats moved on from him in the second half. S-Jax was a nice story for the Pats down the stretch, but nothing more. Going on 33, it's hard to envision Jackson being in the league next season. Sun, Jan 24, 2016 07:39:00 PM

Steven Jackson rushed six times for 16 yards in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Chiefs.

S-Jax added a two-yard reception. The Pats didn't bother with the running game today. When they did, Jackson looked slow and straightlinish. We'd expect Jackson to get 8-10 rushing attempts in the AFC Championship Game. Absent vulturing a touchdown, he won't be a DFS factor.

ESPN Patriots reports Mike Reiss expects Steven Jackson to be the team's lead power back in the playoffs.

Jackson will be ahead of Brandon Bolden, while James White handles much of the pass-game work. That's despite Jackson not showing a whole lot through his first two games with the Patriots. He's rushed 21 times for just 50 yards (2.38 YPC) and one touchdown. Offensive line play might be partly to blame, but the Patriots' line finished No. 2 in Football Outsiders' run-blocking DVOA as opposed to 18th in pass protection. Expect White to produce more in January.

Steven Jackson rushed 14 times for 35 yards and a touchdown Week 17 against the Dolphins.

He added a 20-yard reception. The Patriots attempted to ride Jackson in the first half, but he could not find much room against what had been a terrible run defense. Jackson did manage a two-yard score in the third quarter, but he needed a 68-yard catch by James White to set him up in scoring position. New England was likely just trying to protect Tom Brady behind a banged up offensive line, but this game suggests they will not be able to rely on Jackson to carry the run game in the playoffs. The Patriots better hope the offensive line and passing weapons get healthy during the first-round bye.

Steven Jackson rushed seven times for 15 yards in the Patriots' Week 16 loss to the Jets.

Jackson mixed in liberally behind Brandon Bolden, but Bolden easily led the Patriots in touches this afternoon. Jackson, meanwhile, looked like the same dead-legged back he was for the Falcons in 2014. S-Jax will provide leadership and intangibles for the Patriots during the playoffs, but not much else. Bolden should continue to see the most work on early downs.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 04:43:00 PM

FOX's Jay Glazer reports new Patriots RB Steven Jackson is "expected to take LeGarrette Blount's role."

There's no doubt S-Jax was signed to bang on early downs, but we doubt Glazer meant he'll immediately slide in as a 13-15 carry player. We'd expect short-yardage duties to be divvied up between Jackson, Brandon Bolden and Joey Iosefa against the Jets. Jackson isn't on the fantasy radar for Week 16.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 12:51:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Steven Jackson will be active Sunday against the Jets.

He'll probably be eased in this week but eventually Jackson will assume the LeGarrette Blount role as New England's early-down thumper. S-Jax rushed for 707 yards on 190 carries last year for Atlanta. At 32, he doesn't have much left in the tank.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 08:45:00 AM

Patriots signed RB Steven Jackson to a one-year contract.

New England needs an early-down pounder, and with two weeks left in the season and the No. 1 seed close to locked up, Jackson should have plenty of time to ingrain himself in the offense before the games start to matter in January. That said, Jackson did not have much left in his legs last year in Atlanta, and it remains to be seen if the 32-year-old offers more than Brandon Bolden, James White or even Joey Iosefa. From a fantasy perspective, Jackson's role in the offense will be difficult to predict over the next two weeks and he is not guaranteed to be effective. He will not be a recommended fantasy option in the most important week of the fantasy season.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports there is "nothing imminent" between the Patriots and free agent RB Steven Jackson.

The Patriots are down to two running backs with LeGarrette Blount (hip) out for the year. Jackson met with New England on Wednesday, but likely isn't close to game shape after sitting out all year. It looks like the Patriots are prepared to move forward with Brandon Bolden and James White. Montee Ball could be promoted from the practice squad if the Patriots don't make any other moves.
Wed, Dec 16, 2015 07:57:00 PM

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Patriots are meeting with free agent RB Steven Jackson on Wednesday.

Per Werder, there is "mutual interest" after Jackson played for OC Josh McDaniels in McD's one season with the Rams. Jackson is 32 and has been out of the league since being released by the Falcons back in February, but if anything, he should be fresh. Always known to keep himself in tip-top shape, Jackson would be an interesting addition to a backfield that's in need of assistance after losing LeGarrette Blount (hip) for the year.
Wed, Dec 16, 2015 09:47:00 AM

Free agent RB Steven Jackson tweeted to the Cowboys an image of his number 39 being projected over AT&T Stadium.

Jackson's tweet read, "Attn: Cowboys." The 32-year-old has drawn zero known interest on the free-agent market after the Falcons released him in February. There's barely any tread left on his tires, but we don't doubt Jackson could help an NFL team. There's no way he can carry a heavy workload, but Jackson can still be effective in the red zone and as a pass-protector. He received PFF's No. 3 blocking score among running backs last season. He's better than Chris Johnson.

Free agent Steven Jackson wants to continue his playing career, but only for a competitive team.

"I don't want to go to a team that is rebuilding and needs me to come on and teach guys how to be professional," Jackson said. "I want to be part of a winning team because when I do hang up my cleats, I can see a lot of people holding that over my head when a lot of it was out of my control." Jackson is "fully aware" he might not find a taker. S-Jax has yet to make a visit in free agency, and two months shy of his 32nd birthday, may have played his final down.

Free agent RB Steven Jackson has no plans to retire.

"Make no mistake: I can still punish a defense," Jackson said in a statement. "There are 1,000-yard seasons left in these legs." While speaking well of the Falcons, S-Jax intimated his 2013-14 struggles were due in part to the fact that he wasn't given enough opportunities to wear defenses down with big workloads. Jackson was actually one of the league's best backs after first contact in 2014, but his game has noticeably lacked juice for some time now. As a free agent, Jackson will try to match the $1.2 million guaranteed Maurice Jones-Drew got last spring.

Falcons released RB Steven Jackson.

The move clears $3.75 million in cap space, and was a no-brainer based on Jackson's play the past two seasons. S-Jax averaged 4.23 yards per carry in nine years as a Ram, but saw that number dip to 3.60 in Atlanta. Constantly battling leg injuries, S-Jax was running on fumes from the moment he arrived in Atlanta. Going on 32 with 3,203 career touches to his name, it's quite possible Jackson's playing days are at an end. For now, Devonta Freeman is the new lead back in Atlanta, but he'll undoubtedly face competition in the form of a draft pick.
Thu, Feb 26, 2015 07:26:00 PM

A source tells ABC Atlanta's Zach Klein that Steven Jackson will be released on Friday.

Klein is not a typical Rotoworld source, but signs have been pointing toward S-Jax's release all offseason. The move would clear $3.75 million in cap space, and be completely justified based on Jackson's play in Atlanta the past two seasons. Jackson is one of the best runners of his generation, but is simply out of gas. He's averaged 3.60 yards per carry as a Falcon.
