2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Once again in 2011, Jackson held off 2010 1st round pick C.J. Spiller to be the team’s 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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury 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.
Injury Fred Jackson expects to play in Week 12     -- Mon Nov 17 3:30 pm --

Groin injury
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. (

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.
Injury Fred Jackson out for Thursday night football     -- Thu Nov 13 5:23 pm --

Groin injury
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.
Injury Not looking good for Fred Jackson on TNF     -- Thu Nov 13 8:07 am --

Groin injury
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.
Injury Watkins, Jackson are both active for Bills     -- Sun Nov 9 11:30 am --

Both dealing with groin injuries
Fred Jackson and Sammy Watkins are ACTIVE. (Buffalo Bills via Twitter)

FF Today'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     -- Thu Nov 6 11:20 am --

Groin injury

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.
Injury Fred Jackson not practicing on Monday     -- Mon Nov 3 3:10 pm --

Halfway through expected 2-4 week recovery for groin injury
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. (

FF Today'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.
