Jacquizz Rodgers (RB, ATL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in deeper leagues (12+ teams)

ANALYSIS: Only consider Rodgers if you are desperately thin at RB. Depending on the severity of Steven Jackson‘s injury, Rodgers could see some time as a starter in a timeshare with Jason Snelling. That said, Snelling outperformed Rodgers in Week Two, running for 19 yards and a touchdown on just two carries, while Jacquizz registrered 17 yards on 11 carries. Both had four receptions, Rodgers for 28 yards, and Snelling for 41. While Snelling stole the backup show, I wouldn’t read into this too much, as Rodgers has been the undeniable backup ahead of of Snelling since he was drafted in 2011. If you are in dire need of a RB fill in, Rodgers could suffice for a week or two if Jackson can’t go.
