Coach Mike Smith said he believes Jacquizz Rodgers "has the skill set to play on all three downs."
ESPN's Pat Yaskinsas is almost certain the Falcons have big plans for Rodgers. "Jacquizz is not little," Smith said. "He's short, but he's thick." The coach went on to rave about Rodgers' pass-protection abilities. With Michael Turner's workload set to be scaled back, there's plenty of PPR flier appeal here. Yaskinsas says the Falcons want Rodgers to be "more like what Warrick Dunn once was."
Got him in the 3rd round of every dyno Im in last year, very happy about it. He is still a decent late pick/sleeper in PPR redrafts. Seems the coaching staff add something new every time they talk about him.
Wish I were in that league, traded to 2.4 thinking that would be plenty early and got sniped by Jam by one pick. Never had a shot at him in the other as swarm took him with the #2 pick in 2010 and I was picking 5...neither of those two will let go.
He's the next MJD, it's just a matter of when. Fwiw, I think that's either late this season or 2013 so I'm not targeting him in drafts unless I happen to end up with Burner...but I'll look him up on waivers after he's dropped in October.
