If Tiki falls to you at #5, pick him and be happy. If #4 takes Tiki then you can take Jackson. Win-win situation.
The main concern I have with Steven Jackson is his injury status. It's not that he's a Foster or Chris Perry type always getting hurt, but just that he seems to get nicked up a lot. He's had several "minor" knee injuries over the course of a less than 2 full seasons, including offseason cleanup surgery. And I get the impression that he might not be the best option as a #1 RB if he is constantly playing at 80-90%. St. Louis' turf, even the new stuff, is not kind to RBs and that doesn't help matters.
The upside is tremendous with his talent and situation, but the health issues are troublesome.
I drafted Steven Jackson in my main money league at #7, although in hindsight, I wish I would have taken Steve Smith.
My other starting RBs are Jamal, Dillon, and M.Bell drafted in rounds 3,4, and 6.
