Jacquizz Rodgers (RB, ATL) – Waiver Wire Pickup

Uncle Leo - RotoBaller

Baller Move:  Add in All PPR Leagues

Analysis:  While Rodgers may not be the best long term solution for you at running back, he may be a solid week 7 option.  Steven Jackson has been sidelined with an injury since week 2, and it looks like he still won’t be ready for week 7 action even though the Falcons just had a BYE week to rest up.  Quizz has been surprisingly solid for Atlanta and fantasy owners, leading to his week 5 game where he hauled in 4 catches, rushed for 43 yards, and added in 2 nice TD runs.  Rodgers won’t carry your team to a fantasy title, but he will continue to get rushing attempts and pass targets – which is especially useful for those in PPR leagues.  With the Falcons receivers battling injuries, and Jason Snelling being rather ineffective,Matt Ryan and the Atlanta coaches will need to lean more heavily on Rodgers in week 7 if Jackson can’t return.  Still only owned in 47% of Yahoo leagues, Quizz should be added in deep leagues and started as a solid FLEX play in week 7.
