Jacquizz Rodgers rushed 11 times for 29 yards Week 16 against the Saints.
Rodgers got an extended run out with Steven Jackson sidelined by a quad injury late in the first half. Rodgers ran hard as he always does, but there is simply not enough talent in his legs to be a feature back. Devonta Freeman will be the Falcons' best bet to move the ball if Jackson is forced to miss Week 17 against Carolina, but Rodgers will likely lead the backfield in touches. Dec 21 - 4:17 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed four times for seven yards and caught three passes for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Cardinals.

The Falcons continue to insist on giving Rodgers reps instead of unleashing Devonta Freeman as the unquestioned backup to Steven Jackson. Rodgers is now averaging 3.66 YPC on the season.
Nov 30 - 7:23 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed three times for 16 yards in Atlanta's Week 12 loss to the Browns, adding three catches for 11 yards and a touchdown.

The six touches were Rodgers' most since Week 3. Rodgers' workload should see a tiny bump in the absence of Antone Smith (leg, injured reserve), but he remains miles from fantasy relevance.
Nov 23 - 5:27 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers caught three passes for 28 yards and rushed once for two yards against the Lions Week 8.

Rodgers did not play on the first drive of the game, but saw about the same number of snaps as Davonte Freeman the rest of the game. Rodgers will see an expanded role if Anonte Smith (neck) is forced to miss time, but has no value in Atlanta's four-headed backfield. Through eight games Rodgers is on pace for 340 total yards and two touchdowns.
Oct 26 - 1:40 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed twice for nine yards and caught a pass for three yards in Atlanta's Week 7 loss to Baltimore.

The rotational change-of-pace back carries no re-draft fantasy value.
Oct 19 - 5:31 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers touched the ball twice for nine yards in Atlanta's Week 6 loss to the Bears.

Quizz had a seven-yard rush and two-yard catch. Rodgers has 128 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown through six games.
Oct 12 - 8:09 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers managed ten yards on two carries and caught a five-yard pass in Atlanta's Week 5 loss to the Giants.

Just a change-of-pace and passing-down back, Rodgers is averaging around five offensive touches per game. He holds no value in fantasy leagues.
Oct 5 - 4:55 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for two yards on one carry in Atlanta's Week 4 loss to the Vikings, adding 35 yards on four catches.

Standard day at the office for Rodgers. He's mostly a non-factor as the No. 2 man in this four-man committee. Rodgers is on pace for just 412 total yards and four touchdowns this season. He's obviously not on the fantasy radar.
Sep 28 - 8:21 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed five times for six yards in Atlanta's Week 3 romp over the Bucs, adding a three-yard reception.

On a night where the Falcons scored 56 points, Quizz managed all of nine yards. Rodgers received a carry from the Bucs' five-yard line in the first quarter, but got stuffed for a three-yard loss. Rodgers has proven time and again that he's a replacement-level back, at best, but remains a firm No. 2 in the Falcons' four-man committee. He has no value in 12-14 team leagues.
Sep 19 - 12:24 AM

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed five times for 23 yards in Atlanta's Week 2 loss to the Bengals.

Rodgers was targeted just once in the passing game. Rodgers and Steven Jackson were the only Falcons to get carries one week after they went with a four-man attack against the Saints. Rodgers is waiver-wire fodder across all formats of fantasy.
Sep 14 - 5:52 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed 6 times for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 1 win.

Rodgers' touchdown was an impressive, weaving 17-yard run in the fourth quarter that gave Atlanta their first lead of the game. Rodgers' seven touches were the most of the committee of backs backing up starter Steven Jackson. He is still the No. 2 back in Atlanta, though the Falcons would likely turn to a committee approach if anything happened to Jackson.
Sep 7 - 5:09 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed eight times for 33 yards and caught five passes for 31 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.

With Steven Jackson (hamstring) still sidelined, Rodgers started and handled the vast majority of first-team work. Antone Smith mixed in sparingly and Devonta Freeman got just one series to himself. It's clear that Quizz, now in his fourth year with the Falcons, has the faith of the coaching staff even though they are aware of his talent limitations. He'd lead a committee approach if Jackson misses any time early in the season. In three preseason games, Rodgers has 18 carries for 66 yards with one touchdown and five catches for 31 yards.
Aug 23 - 9:33 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed seven times for 20 yards and a touchdown in Atlanta's preseason opener Friday night.

He started with Steven Jackson (hamstring) on the shelf. Quizz split time with Antone Smith, while struggling rookie Devonta Freeman worked as the No. 3 back through Atlanta's rotation. We've seen what Rodgers has to offer at the NFL level, and it's not much beyond scatback duties. If Atlanta is going to have a viable running game this season, it won't be because of Rodgers.
Aug 8 - 8:45 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers is battling rookie Davonta Freeman for No. 2 RB duties.

Through three NFL seasons, Rodgers has averaged a paltry 3.63 YPC as an alleged change-of-pace back. We're expecting Freeman to perform far better with the gig. Even with Steven Jackson nearing the end of the line, there's not much Dynasty value in holding Rodgers.

Jacquizz Rodgers has hit escalators resulting in a 2014 cap number of $1.436 million.

Thanks to playing on at least 35 percent of the Falcons' snaps in two of his first three NFL seasons, Rodgers' 2014 base salary has jumped from $645,000 to $1.389 million. Steven Jackson also carries a 2014 cap figure of $4.166 million and Jason Snelling will count $1.733 million. It's a lot to pay a largely ineffective running back corps, but the Falcons are well under the 2014 projected cap. They'll likely keep Rodgers as a change-of-pace option behind Jackson.
