Fantasy Football Week 4: Steven Jackson Injury Won't Hold Him Back Vs. Redskins

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson has been limited for much of the 2011 season with a quad injury, but he is listed as probable for Week 4, and could put up some big fantasy football numbers against the Washington Redskins in an important game for both teams.

On just six carries so far in two games in 2011, Jackson is averaging 13.2 yards per carry. If you're wondering if that's good, I'll just go ahead and tell you that yes, it is. Jackson will be facing a Redskins defense that has given up 4.8 yards per carry in the first three weeks of the season, which is tied for the fifth worst in the NFL. The Redskins have given up three touchdowns on the ground, so Jackson could be in for a pretty big day as he's likely to get the majority of the carries in the Rams' offense this week, ahead of Carnell Williams.

Fantasy football projection site numberFire has Jackson earning 11.56 fantasy points this week, so he's a good start for your team.
