Despite a "sore foot" that had Steven Jackson on the injury report for the good part of the week leading up to the St. Louis Rams' Week 10 match up vs. the Cleveland Browns, he will start in Cleveland and is a must start for fantasy owners. numberFire.com has Jackson projected as the ninth overall running back, and there are a few factors pointing towards Jackson having a big day.
One is that Rams' QB Sam Bradford is still dealing with the aftermath of a sprained ankle that forced him to miss two games this season, so Jackson will likely get a bulk of the work on offense. Secondly, Jackson is coming off his two biggest games of the season, having rushed for 159 yards and two scores in Week 8 vs. the New Orleans Saints and 130 yards in Week 9 vs. the Arizona Cardinals. The last factor is that the Browns currently have the third worst rushing defense in the NFL, which must have Jackson licking his chops.
