|Philadelphia burned a 7th round pick to acquire Brown, a Kansas State product who will need to show some increased maturity in order to make the Eagles roster. Brown would have been taken much higher based on his size and ability but has barely played in two seasons. At 6’0” and 223 pounds, he brings some size to the running back position for the Eagles but that hasn’t been a key concern for Andy Reid with respect to running backs. With 2nd year player Dion Lewis having done little and fellow rookie Carlos Polk a health risk, Brown has a chance to emerge as LeSean McCoy’s backup in 2012. Monitor this situation in training camp.
| C.J. Spiller activated off IR/designated to return -- Mon Dec 15 4:15 pm --|
Readiness for Week 16 will be determined in practice
|Bills HC Doug Marrone: C.J. Spiller (clavicle) is cleared to return and will be added to the active roster. His readiness for return will be gauged this week. (Buffalo Bills on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Even though the Bills are fighting for a playoff spot, it seems unlikely that Spiller will see much - if any - action in Week 16 after missing the previous seven games. Expect another heavy workload for Fred Jackson for at least one more week, with Bryce Brown, Anthony Dixon and maybe Spiller pitching in against Oakland.
| Fred Jackson expects to play in Week 12 -- Mon Nov 17 3:30 pm --|
|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)|
FF Today'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.
| Fred Jackson out for Thursday night football -- Thu Nov 13 5:23 pm --|
|Not able to take the field tonight, but I’ll be cheering on as we defend the Blue & Red. (Fred Jackson via Twitter)|
FF Today'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.
| Not looking good for Fred Jackson on TNF -- Thu Nov 13 8:07 am --|
|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)|
FF Today'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.
| Fred Jackson practices for second straight day -- Thu Nov 6 11:20 am --|
|Fred Jackson is out here and practicing for the second straight day. (Joe Buscaglia via Twitter)|
FF Today'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.
