Rams-Lions: Steven Jackson Leads Rams to First Win | NFL Player Rankings
The St. Louis Rams finally pick up their first win of the season against the Lions this weekend. The victory didn’t come until a fourth quarter touchdown run from Steven Jackson to put the Rams up 17 to 10.
Jackson Produces Big Day
Jackson’s biggest fault for fantasy football may be that his is too nice of a guy. This young running backs talent has been wasted on a horrible team for years now, and we will never truly see him dominate the way he could have if he was on a winner.
In this game, Jackson finally produced his first touchdown run of the season and had a very strong game overall. While this game no doubt helped fantasy owners to victory, they have waited all to long for a game like this from Jackson.
I do believe Jackson will have a solid second half of the season, but I’m not sure if he will ever be a true top five fantasy running back again. The Rams are not a good team and who knows when they will be even a respectable 8 and 8 team again.
The Detroit Lions do have a victory this season and that is an improvement over last year. However, if they plan of winning two or more ball games this season, they will need their star receiver Calvin Johnson back and healthy.
Some people in the media thought Johnson would play this week on his bad knee, but he was listed as out for this contest.
Hopefully, Johnson will be back soon as the Lions and fantasy football owners need him in their lineup.
