2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: Steven Jackson, RB, St. Louis Rams

2010 Stats
 1,241 rush yds.
6 rush TDs
46 rec. / 383 yds.
0 rec. TDs
2011 Projected
 1,215 rush yds.
7 rush TDs
55 rec. / 450 yds.
1 rec. TDs

For years, Jackson has been the only playmaker in St. Louis. But this year he should benefit from the maturation of quarterback Sam Bradford. Jackson is dual threat who's a rare three-down running back. Despite a lack of talent around him, Jackson has averaged more than 1,200 yards rushing/receiving the past six seasons. An improving Bradford should open up more red zone opportunities for Jackson, who's scored just six touchdowns last season and four touchdowns in 2009. He didn't miss a game last season, playing through back, knee and finger injuries.
