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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Fred Jackson expects to play in Week 12
Groin injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 17, 3:30 pm

Buffalo Bills
Bills HC Doug Marrone said last week that if their Week 11 game was on Sunday instead of Thursday night, he felt Fred Jackson would’ve been able to play in the game. on Thursday night however, he was scratched after tweaking his injured groin in practice Tuesday. Now Jackson fully anticipates being ready to go this coming Sunday against the Jets. The veteran running back also said the plan was to play in both the Chiefs and Dolphins games despite the quick turnaround of five days between them. (BuffaloBIlls.com)

FFToday's Take: Jackson said "the plan was to play both games", but he had a setback in practice last Tuesday. Expect a questionable tag this week. If he can play, he'll probably be a low-end RB2 in PPR and flex option in standard leagues in a difficult matchup. Jackson has juicy matchups against Cleveland (Week 13) and Oakland (Week 16) down the stretch. Expect Bryce Brown to continue in C.J. Spiller's old role while Anthony Dixon returns to his No. 3 role.


Injury Fred Jackson out for Thursday night football
Groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 13, 5:23 pm

Buffalo Bills
Not able to take the field tonight, but I’ll be cheering on as we defend the Blue & Red. (Fred Jackson via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fred Jackson broke the news on his Twitter account. Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown will share running back duties with Brown being the best option in PPR leagues. Both are risky FLEX plays against a solid Miami defense.


Injury Not looking good for Fred Jackson on TNF
Groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 13, 8:07 am

Buffalo Bills
I'm told Bills RB Fred Jackson almost certainly won't play tonight because of groin injury. Recovery from Sunday has taken too long. (Tim Graham via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: While nothing is official, it appears Jackson may be on the Inactive list tonight when the Bills visit the Dolphins. Jackson was limited last week against the Chiefs and hasn't had enough time to recover given the short week. Expect, Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown to handle duties at running back position with Brown being the desired play in PPR leagues.


Injury Watkins, Jackson are both active for Bills
Both dealing with groin injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 9, 11:30 am

Buffalo Bills
Fred Jackson and Sammy Watkins are ACTIVE. (Buffalo Bills via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Both Bills' players are dealing with groin injuries. I'd be leery of starting Jackson if you have other viable options at the running back position. I'd be more comfortable starting Watkins but either are 100 percent and represent considerable risk.


Injury Fred Jackson practices for second straight day
Groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 6, 11:20 am

Buffalo Bills
Fred Jackson is out here and practicing for the second straight day. (Joe Buscaglia via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jackson is coming off a groin injury and it still remains to be seen if he'll play on Sunday but he's certainly trending the right direction. If he sits, Anthony Dixon would get the start and share time with Bryce Brown.


Injury Fred Jackson not practicing on Monday
Halfway through expected 2-4 week recovery for groin injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 3, 3:10 pm

Buffalo Bills
Bills RB Fred Jackson missed Buffalo’s Week 8 game with a groin injury suffered in Week 7 against Minnesota. He’s been getting treatment and rehabbing throughout the bye week and is hoping to return sooner rather than later. Bills HC Doug Marrone will provide an update this afternoon on Jackson’s chances to return to the lineup this week. (BuffaloBills.com)

FFToday's Take: Bills beat writer Joe Buscaglia tweeted that Jackson did not practice on Monday, which is hardly surprising for a 33-year-old running back just over two weeks into an injury recovery that is expected to take up to four weeks. Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon will continue to hold down the fort in his absence, but Jackson has high-end RB2 potential down the stretch in a C.J. Spiller-less backfield.


Injury Both Spiller, Jackson injured in Week 7
Spiller likely out for the year with broken collarbone
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 19, 8:30 pm

Buffalo Bills
C.J. Spiller's shoulder and emotions were wrecked. Ten minutes earlier, Buffalo Bills center Eric Wood helped running back Fred Jackson limp off the field with a groin injury. Spiller's collar bone reportedly was broken. The Bills could be without Spiller and Jackson for a long time. (Buffalo News)

FFToday's Take: Spiller will have surgery on his collarbone and will likely miss the remainder of the season. Jackson will have an MRI on his groin on Monday. He's likely out for Week 8 and the Bills have a bye in Week 9. Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon will be the top two running backs next week and perhaps for the next few weeks until Jackson can return.
