2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
It would be easy to write off Fred Jackson, who turned 33 years old back in February, but then again the man is coming off of a season where he put up 1,283 total yards while scoring 10 touchdowns. He was able to finish last season as RB11 despite splitting carries with C.J. Spiller. Jackson has surprised people throughout his entire career, beginning with coming out of practically nowhere at age 26. He spent his early professional years playing in low level indoor leagues and then NFL Europe) then earned his way into a timeshare with Marshawn Lynch, a player drafted at No. 12 overall in the NFL draft. So, don't be too surprised if he's able to hold off fatherhood for at least one more season. Jackson is a complete back who is equally adept at taking the ball inside to earn tough yards, busting one outside of the tackles or catching passes out of the backfield. At his age and with Spiller healthy, Jackson will most likely see his workload scaled back a bit this year. It's possible he could even start at some point in the season to give way to the younger Bryce Brown, who was acquired via trade from the Philadelphia Eagles in the offseason.

Spiller to average 20 touches?
Bills less concerned about RB depth in 2014
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 14, 4:20 pm

Buffalo Bills
The bell cow in this quartet, however, is still expected to be C.J. Spiller. After spending a year working with Spiller and understanding where he really excels and how diversified his game can be, OC Nathaniel Hackett is confident he can maximize Spiller’s talents for the offense. And now with an extra pair of backs (as well as Fred Jackson) he can freely maneuver Spiller to any position on the field. If the offense is operating at peak efficiency, Spiller is likely to touch the ball 20 times a game, they just won’t all be carries out of the backfield. (BuffaloBills.com)

FFToday's Take: Hackett famously claimed that Spiller would get the ball "until he throws up" last season, so skepticism is natural. However, the additions of Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon may allow Hackett to use Spiller liberally in his up-tempo attack, especially now that his ankle is no longer an issue. It is unlikely Spiller will average 20 touches per game in such a deep backfield, but he should have no problems leading the group by a wide margin if he can stay healthy.


Fred Jackson still displaying good form
Veteran RB still a fixture in Bills' offense
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jun 20, 8:00 am

Buffalo Bills
In a backfield that is deeper than ever, Fred Jackson still looks like one of the offense’s sure things at age 33. C.J. Spiller deservedly is the No. 1 back. But the oldest player on the offense did not look like he has lost a step, barreling across the line of scrimmage with the same downhill force as ever. (Buffalo News)

FFToday's Take: It's hard to get behind the 33-year-old Jackson as a fantasy pick despite his fine showing last season when he averaged 4.3 yards per carry and scored 10 total touchdowns. A healthy Spiller should put a damper on Jackson's numbers in 2014 but fantasy owners shouldn't overlook Jackson's RB4 value in the late rounds of drafts.
