Atlanta Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers' 2014 base salary has gone from $645,000 to $1.389 million as part of the Proven Performance Escalator.
Huddle Up: Rodgers saw his touches increase in no small part due to Steven Jackson's injury. We'll see whether that continues with a healthy Jackson in 2014--and whether Rodgers' raise ultimately moves him from a value of a contributor to a player who is overpriced for his role on the roster.

Atlanta Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers (concussion) was taken to the locker room in the fourth quarter of the Week 16 game against the San Francisco 49ers Monday, Dec. 23, to be evaluated for concussion.
Huddle Up: Rodgers, who's been the Falcons' change-of-pace back, had 3 carries for 10 yards and 3 receptions for 15 yards before departing.

RB Jacquizz Rodgers led the Atlanta Falcons with 43 yards and 2 TDs on 14 carries and added 15 yards on 4 receptions Monday, Oct. 7 in a 30-28 Week 5 loss to the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: With fellow RB Jason Snelling leaving early in the fourth quarter with a possible concussion and starter Steven Jackson already out, the bulk of the team's RB workload fell on the 5-foot-6 Rodgers who delivered for the Falcons and his fantasy owners with his 2 scoring runs. Jackson, however, is expected back after the Falcons' Week 6 bye, and Rodgers is expected to return to his change-of-pace role.
