It seems as if the weight of carrying the Rams offense has finally crushed Steven Jackson. After three straight games over 100 yards in weeks 8-10, the Rams' star RB has hit a wall recently. In his past two games, Jackson has ran for just 3.3 yards per carry, and has not gotten in the end zone. For week 13, numberFire.com is projecting that Jackson's downward slide will continue.
Amongst running backs, numberFire has Jackson projected as No. 24 overall, so fantasy owners should seek other sources of production on Sunday. For the week, numberFire likes the following running backs more than Jackson: BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Beanie Wells, Darren Sproles, Roy Helu, Jonathan Stewart and Shonn Greene. Jackson's numbers will likely be depressed further if QB Sam Bradford is unable to make the start for the Rams on Sunday.
