2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
After a moderately successful rookie season in which he ran for 205 yards and caught 21 passes for 188 yards, Rodgers is slated for an expanded role in the Falcons offense in 2012. The question is how expanded will his role become? The Falcons 5th round pick in the 2011 draft, Rodgers lacks ideal size (5í6Ē, 196 pounds) to assume a heavy workload in the teamís offense and with Michael Turner doing the heavy lifting, Rodgers will likely get 6-8 touches per game. Thatís not enough to make him a useful fantasy option. Even if Turner were to be lost to injury, Rodgers would almost certainly split the workload with Jason Snelling with Snelling assuming the short yardage role. While some are predicting a Darren Sproles type role for Rodgers, he lacks the speed that Sproles possesses. Do you get the feeling Iím not excited at the prospect of Rodgers having an expanded role? Heís a lower tier RB4 with more appeal in larger PPR leagues that employ the flex position.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Devonta Freeman flashing in Falcons' camp     -- Thu Jul 31 5:10 pm --

Steven Jackson sidelined by hamstring injury
Devonta Freeman will have plenty of opportunity to prove his value immediately. A left hamstring injury is likely to sideline veteran starter Steven Jackson for the bulk of the preseason, allowing Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers to receive more backfield reps in training camp and exhibition games. Freeman already has shown flashes of his ability to be an every-down back. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Jackson suffered a left hamstring injury - the same one that cost him four games last year - on Tuesday. HC Mike Smith didn't offer much of a timeline, other than that the veteran is expected back for Week 1. At any rate, the Falcons have been thrilled with Freeman thus far and he should be expected to contribute even with a healthy (and aging) Jackson. Freeman only figures to see his fantasy stock rise to high-end RB4 status before the end of the preseason.
