Steven Jackson Fantasy Projection: Jackson Projected As A Solid Second Running Back

It's been a rough three weeks for St. Louis Rams RB, who likely hit rock bottom of a disappointing stretch last week vs. the Niners when he rushed for 19 yards on 10 carries. His production will almost assuredly tick up from that in Week 14, but will it be enough to warrant a placement in a starting spot in fantasy?

According to, the answer is yes. numberFire has Jackson projected as the No. 20 overall running back for the week, making him at least a solid flex option in any standard fantasy league, if not an outright RB2. The Seahawks rush defense is very solid, coming in at 11th in the NFL at 103.5 yards per game, so maybe Jackson's projection says less about him and more about the other potential running back options out there.
