Rams RB Darby could have fantasy appeal

Rams running back Steven Jackson was unable to practice Thursday due to a groin injury, leaving doubts about his status for this week’s game against the Seahawks.

Jackson is “hopeful” to participate in practice on Friday, per a tweet from the team, while coach Steve Spagnuolo has listed his No. 1 runner as “day to day.”

If Jackson were inactive, the starting duties would fall in the lap of Kenneth Darby. He’s clearly not on Jackson’s level from a fantasy perspective, but he would be a viable flex option during a week where several big-name runners are dealing with injuries.

Knowshon Moreno (hamstring), Ray Rice (knee), Jahvid Best (toe), Pierre Thomas (ankle) and Jackson are all at less than 100 percent entering Week 4.
