(KSDK Sports) -- Back in September many so called "fantasy football experts" wrote that "Perhaps it's time for fantasy owners to part ways with St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson."
It appeared to the experts that the injury-prone Jackson at 29 years old and with a mountain of mileage on his legs was descending the depth chart as Daryl Richardson ascended.
But over the last three games, Jackson appears to have found that extra gear and is once again running with his shoulder down and bruising through opposing defensive lines to the tune of 321 yards and is on pace to reach 1,000 yards for the eighth year in a row, a feat only accomplished by a handful of other professional football players.
This week, KSDK Sports' Frank Cusumano ask Jackson about nearing 1000 yards.
