2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
If youíre looking for consistent fantasy production at running back, look no further than the Rams Steven Jackson. The man known as ďSjaxĒ has piled up seven consecutive 1,000 rushing yard seasons, the longest active streak in the league, and has been the focal point of the teamís offense for the last several years. While Jackson has been a workhorse back since 2005, averaging almost 340 touches per season, the team used a second-round pick on Isaiah Pead and the plan is for Jackson to see his touches go down slightly in 2012. However, given the state of the teamís crop of wide receivers and tight ends, Jackson is expected to carry the teamís offense once again and the offensive philosophy of new head coach Jeff Fisher and new offensive coordinator Brian Scottenheimer has been to pound the opposing defenses into submission using a power rushing attack. The only knock on Jacksonís fantasy production has been in the touchdown department, as he has averaged six touchdowns per season over the past five years and hasnít hit double-digit touchdowns since his career-year in 2006. Sjax rates as a low end RB1 or upper tier RB2 in 2012.

James White becoming "dependable" option     -- Tue Dec 22 12:00 pm --

Pats OC Josh McDaniels lauds utility, reliability of passing down back
It's been an impressive three-week stretch for second-year New England Patriots "running back" James White, who the Pats coaches have praised recently. "James has really come on and been a dependable guy for us," McDaniels said. "His work ethic since we drafted him last year [fourth round] and his maturity, his intelligence, his ability to retain information from one week to the next has always given him an opportunity to know what to do, and then now heís had those opportunities in game situations to go out there and perform on the field. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Sounds like White makes for a fine low-end RB2 or high-end RB3/flex play this week. He's got more value (especially in PPR leagues) than Brandon Bolden or even the recently acquired Steven Jackson.
Patriots to sign veteran RB Steven Jackson     -- Mon Dec 21 11:39 am --

One-year deal
The New England Patriots, who have been ravaged by injuries at running back this season, will sign free agent Steven Jackson to a one-year deal Monday, a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Joey Iosefa (14) led the Patriots in rushing attempt in Week 15 followed by Brandon Bolden (10). The Patriots are in need of a veteran rusher after losing LeGarrette Blount and Dion Lewis to season-ending injuries. The 32-year-old Jackson has a chance at fantasy relevance but owners will be taking a role of the dice given the unpredictability of Patriots offensive gameplan from week to week.
New England works out Steven Jackson     -- Wed Dec 16 5:46 pm --

Veteran RB played for OC Josh McDaniels in St. Louis
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported New England worked out Steven Jackson on Wednesday, according to a source informed of the team's thinking. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: New England is simply looking at every available option to fortify what is left of their backfield in preparation for a playoff run. Steven Jackson may be able to provide another able bodied player for the team to rely on down the stretch but his role would be limited over the final weeks of the fantasy season. James White and Brandon Bolden are still the best fantasy options in the wake of LeGarrette Blount's injury.
