Bills | Fred Jackson may miss final cut?

Tue, 12 May 2015 12:10:45 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson may not make the final roster if the Bills end up keeping only three running backs, according to Mike Rodak of ESPN.com. RB LeSean McCoy is a lock for the final roster, while RBs Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown will also compete for a spot.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was a point-per-reception monster last year and has been a valuable part of the Bills' offense, so it will be interesting to see how the offseason unfolds for Buffalo. McCoy will start barring an injury and, as usual, has RB1 ability in both PPR and standard scoring leagues.

Bills | Fred Jackson undergoes surgery

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 15:28:52 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (undisclosed) underwent surgery this offseason and has not been cleared for full practice participation. Jackson is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should have a solid role in the offense even though the team added LeSean McCoy this offseason. Jackson could be an option in later rounds of drafts as a handcuff to McCoy or a depth player at running back.

Bills | LeSean McCoy, Fred Jackson to split third downs?

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 15:05:45 -0700

Buffalo Bills RBs LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson could split third-down snaps. Head coach Rex Ryan said Jackson wouldn't be in on all of the third-down plays and that RB Anthony Dixon would also get some playing time.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy is obviously still the Buffalo running back to own and will be the team's bellcow running back, as Ryan has said. Jackson should still provide some value, especially in point-per-reception leagues, but he won't be nearly as effective as he was last season.

Bills | LeSean McCoy Buffalo's bellcow

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 07:31:51 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy was referred to as the team's "bellcow" by head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan said that McCoy and RB Fred Jackson could see time on third downs.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like the team will feature McCoy heavily, which helps shed doubt on Jackson's involvement. Jackson's value falls to the high-end RB4 territory, while Shady is best served as a midrange RB1.

Bills | Rex Ryan committed to the run

Sat, 21 Mar 2015 15:57:52 -0700

Buffalo Bills RBs LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson are expected to receive a lot of carries in head coach Rex Ryan's offense. Ryan went as far as to say: "we're going to run it 50 times if we can on you."

Fantasy Tip: This really doesn't change much because it's not often that you can run the ball effectively 50 times against another NFL team. Shady McCoy is a mid-to-low RB1 right now, while Jackson's fantasy appeal is a little clouded. He could be a low-end RB2 or a high-end RB3.

Bills | Fred Jackson not going anywhere

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 10:55:05 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson "isn't going anywhere," according to a team source.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's fantasy value is clouded with the addition of LeSean McCoy via trade. The 34-year-old had just 525 rushing yards and two touchdowns in 2014. He should still see some work alongside McCoy, and he could be a goal line consideration, but he shouldn't be anything more than an RB3 with McCoy in the picture.

Bills | Bills set franchise lows in running game

Mon, 29 Dec 2014 09:48:58 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson's 525 rushing yards this year were the fewest by a team-leading running back in a non-strike season since O.J. Simpson had 488 in 1970. The Bills set futility marks in 2014 in 16 games for the lowest total rushing yards (1,482) and fewest rushing first downs (65).

Bills | Fred Jackson is 21 yards from the record books

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 13:18:10 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson needs 21 receiving yards in Week 14 to become just the third undrafted NFL running back -- joining Priest Holmes and Clem Daniels -- to total at least 5,000 rushing yards and 2,500 receiving yards in a career.

Bills | Fred Jackson will play

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 14:38:14 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) is active for the team's Week 12 game.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson probably will be part of a committee at running back with Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown. Jackson costs $5,200 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider using another running back playing on Monday night.

Bills | Fred Jackson expected to play

Sat, 22 Nov 2014 17:56:19 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) is officially listed as questionable for the team's Week 12 game Monday, Nov. 24, but head coach Doug Marrone said he is planning on Jackson playing.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) should suit up Monday, but he should be avoided at FantasyScore as the Bills take on a New York Jets team with a stout run defense.
