Silent in playoff loss
RBDallas Cowboys
January 18, 2019
Jackson did not play a single snap during Saturday's playoff loss to the Rams. He finished up the regular season with six carries for 16 yards across two games with the Cowboys.
ANALYSIS
Jackson failed to bring in his lone target during the 2018 season. He spent the first four weeks with the Packers but did not log a single snap before being waived by the team. On Dec. 22, Jackson joined Dallas' active roster and played a depth role during the team's final two games of the regular season. The 25-year-old, who was originally drafted by the Cowboys in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, likely will need to impress on special teams this offseason to earn a job in 2019.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
A sixth-round pick out of Eastern Michigan, Jackson is a fearsome athletic specimen with an intriguing highlight reel who drew little attention in his senior year playing for a small school with a poor offense. Given that the Cowboys also selected Ezekiel Elliott with the fourth overall pick and established veterans Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris are around to provide depth, there wouldn't seem to be room for Jackson too, but if he can make a contribution on special teams he could still stake a claim to a roster spot. Beyond that, though, it would take some injuries for him to see significant snaps on offense.
