He will also see plenty of red-zone opportunities, so I expect him to get double digit touchdowns. Forte will not get as many red-zone looks as Jackson. Chris Johnson is too boom-or-bust for me.
I agree. Johnson is just a nightmare. He's like starting Flacco or Romo at QB. He COULD put up 30+ points but he could also put up 4...
I think Jackson has a couple good years in ATL before retiring. The guy certainly deserves it!
And Forte is a long way off from the seasons where he accounted for 60+% of the offence in Chicago. He's still a solid RB2 but, as much as I'd like to see it happen, I don't think he makes it back to the RB1 style numbers he had a couple years ago.
