2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Once again in 2011, Jackson held off 2010 1st round pick C.J. Spiller to be the teamís lead running back. In fact, Jackson was playing so well last season that Spiller basically became persona non grata in the Bills offensive game planning, with Jackson averaging 22 touches per game until a fractured fibula ended his season in Week 11. Jackson amassed 934 rushing yards, 442 receiving yards and six touchdowns prior to the injury and was being mentioned as a potential MVP candidate. Unfortunately for Jackson, Spiller played well in relief and likely earned himself a larger role in 2012, despite his poor production over the first year and a half of his career. While Jackson figures to be healthy by opening day and to regain his starting position, look for a reduced role for Jackson in 2012. Consider him a high end RB2 this season.

Spiller to average 20 touches?     -- Mon Jul 14 4:20 pm --

Bills less concerned about RB depth in 2014
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 Spillerís 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 wonít all be carries out of the backfield. (BuffaloBills.com)

FF Today'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     -- Fri Jun 20 8:00 am --

Veteran RB still a fixture in Bills' offense
In a backfield that is deeper than ever, Fred Jackson still looks like one of the offenseís 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)

FF Today'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.
