One could argue the Atlanta Falcons are a few plays away from being 0-2 or even 2-0 for that matter. But at the moment, Atlanta sits at 1-1 with a huge game at the Miami Dolphins this week, but they’ll be without their prized free agent signing from this offseason:

Jackson exited Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams with a thigh injury and did not return. Jackson caught an eight-yard swing pass for a touchdown on the opening drive then went to the locker room with what the team is calling a thigh bruise, and it appears it’s much more serious than that mow.
It leaves the Falcons with just Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling at running back. Rodgers should see by far the most touches, but Snelling should get looks near the goal-line. Neither player is an immediate must-add in fantasy leagues, but they should both definitely be on your watch list.
