RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jackson failed to get a touch on offense in Thursday's 33-25 loss to the Blue Bombers, but kept the Argos in the game with 339 return yards and a touchdown.

His 78-yard punt return for a TD late in the first quarter gave the Argos their first lead of the game, and Jackson took a kickoff return to the house in the second quarter only to have the score called back on an penalty. The 25-year-old CFL rookie has yet to become very involved in the offense, but with Brandon Whitaker struggling as Toronto's lead back it wouldn't be surprising to see the electric Jackson start to work his way into the backfield mix.

Jackson is listed as the backup running back for Friday's matchup with the Lions.

Jackson did not suit up for Toronto's season opener, but he finds himself on the depth chart this week with fellow running back Brandon Whitaker (undisclosed) unavailable. James Wilder figures to see the bulk of the work in the backfield, but Jackson could see some opportunities in the return game as well.

Jackson signed with the Argonauts on Tuesday.

Jackson previously spent time with Florida Atlantic University and Winnipeg, and played last season with Montreal, where he spent the duration of the season on the practice roster. He will likely try to make the Argonauts roster as a special-teams speedster for the upcoming season.

Jackson is listed as the third-string running back for Friday's game against the Redblacks.

Jackson was not immediately ready to play when he signed with the Alouettes in late July, but it appears he is good to go for Week 9. Jackson's workload figures to be minimal, as Brandon Rutley typically sees the bulk of the work in Montreal's backfield.
