Description: The most explosive back in Atlanta isn't Steven Jackson or Jacquizz Rodgers it's Antone Smith.
Insight: Too bad he doesn't get enough work to be fantasy worthy. Sunday he rushed four times for 62 yards, including a 48-yard touchdown. He's run the ball 10 times this season for 119 yards and two touchdowns. Isn't it about time to stop using plodding Steven Jackson?
