Unfortunate injuries to some St. Louis Rams starters on Sunday may cause our first significant fantasy shakeup of 2011. We know it’s an enormous shocker, but Steven Jackson has already suffered a leg injury. Jackson was removed from the Rams game against the Eagles early on Sunday with what is being called a quad strain.
Cadillac Williams got the bulk of the work after Jackson went down and should instantly become a must-grab in most if not all fantasy formats. Williams racked up over 100 total yards of offense including six catches for 49 yards. There is no telling if Jackson’s injury will cause him to miss any time, but he has had many a nagging injury in the past and a strained quad could certainly turn into one. He’s only owned in 7 percent of Yahoo! leagues which is shocking considering Jackson’s injury history.
