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.

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.

Bills | Fred Jackson practices

Sat, 22 Nov 2014 15:56:48 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) practiced in an undisclosed capacity Saturday, Nov. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($5,200; 10.4% of your cap) should be ready to play Monday, Nov. 24. However, he has a tough matchup against the New York Jets, which makes him a risky flex option.

Bills | Fred Jackson took advantage of rest

Sat, 22 Nov 2014 07:18:58 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) took advantage of the rest he got due to the blizzard, and it helped as he recovered from a groin injury. Jackson said he did not suffer a setback in practice Friday. "Obviously you want to rest it, and with these two days off I was able to do that. But you want to be in the room with the trainers and go through some treatments and rehab and things like that and not being able to do that is something that could be a setback, but taking advantage of not doing anything is something that could help too. It felt good getting out there today. Hopefully I can continue to progress well and play well on Monday."

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should be fully healthy and good to go in Week 12, but will likely be competing with Anthony Dixon for carries if he is not at full strength.

Bills | Limited practice for Fred Jackson

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 13:39:30 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) was limited for the second straight day in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. The Bills did not actually practice Thursday, so Orton's status is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson didn't play last week, and the fact that the team hasn't been able to practice so far this week because of weather conditions surely doesn't help him. The New York Jets have been one of the better units at stopping the run this year, too. Jackson isn't a wise play at FantasyScore this weekend.

Bills | Fred Jackson thinks Bills at disadvantage

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 10:44:18 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson said he believes the team is at a disadvantage for their Week 12 game against the New York Jets because the snow in the Buffalo area has prevented the team from practicing. Jackson said the players are using their iPads to study the game plan for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills offense could use a simple game plan for Week 12 since they have not been able to practice this week. All of the Bills' skill players could be risky options to use this week because of the lack of practice time.

Bills | Fred Jackson limited

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 13:44:22 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. The team did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should be able to play this week after missing Week 11 but he could be limited during the game. Jackson has a price tag of $5,200 on FantasyScore but may not be the best option to use this week.

Bills | Fred Jackson expected to go Week 12

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 07:17:09 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) would have played in Week 11 if the game weren't on Thursday Night Football. Jackson expects to play in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson will face the New York Jets next week, which boasts a formidable frontline. He could be worth a flex play at the right price. Anthony Dixon, who failed break out in Jackson's stead, will likely remain involved but probably won't be worth a look on FantasyScore most weeks.

Bills | Fred Jackson suffered setback

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 14:38:16 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) said he aggravated his groin injury during practice Tuesday, Nov. 11, which is why he did not play in Week 11. He said he hopes the extra time off will allow him to be ready to play in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should have a good chance to play in Week 12 since he has the extra time to rest. Jackson could start when he is able to return and probably will be a solid starting option if he receives most of the work.

Bills | Bryce Brown starting Thursday

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 16:20:33 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Bryce Brown will get the start at running back Thursday, Nov. 13, with RB Fred Jackson (groin) out.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is a relatively cheap option at $4,000 on FantasyScore, though the matchup with the Miami Dolphins isn't the most favorable and Anthony Dixon will also be getting repetitions.

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 15:32:28 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) is out for tonight's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's absence gives more value to Bryce Brown ($4,000, 8%) and Anthony Dixon ($4,000, 8%), with Brown having more value in point-per-reception leagues.

Bills | Fred Jackson not expected to play

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 09:26:52 -0800

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) likely will not play in Week 11, because he did not have enough time to recover from the team's Week 10 game, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown should handle the running back duties in Week 11 with Dixon probably receiving more carries. Dixon is worth $4,000 on FantasyScore and could be a cheaper flex option.

Bills | Fred Jackson may sit out

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 06:46:42 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) could sit out the Week 11 game Thursday, Nov. 13, against the Miami Dolphins due to the short week. His status is much more questionable than it was last week.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($5,200; 10.4% of your cap) isn't a good start this week. Anthony Dixon ($4,000; 8.0%) could receive a one-week reprieve and be a good flex option on FantasyScore.

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 13:30:49 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 12, and is listed as questionable for Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was able to play in Week 10 and should have a good chance to play in Week 11. Jackson costs $5,200 on FantasyScore, but he may not be worth the money if he continues to share work with Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown.

Bills | Fred Jackson limited again

Tue, 11 Nov 2014 14:39:46 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) was limited in practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson isn't the idea candidate for your FantasyScore lineups in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night. Jackson ($5,200) was limited in his return last weekend, and it's hard to see him seeing a big boost in playing time on a short week.

Bills | Fred Jackson limited

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 16:55:50 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) was limited in practice Monday, Nov. 10. Jackson played only 27 offensive snaps in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs but is confident that he'll be ready to play against the Miami Dolphins in Week 11 Thursday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was limited to just three carries for 10 yards against the Chiefs, but he also had four catches for 39 yards. It's tough to envision his snaps going up considerably on a short week, making him an unattractive FantasyScore option for the second straight week.

Bills | Minimal work for Fred Jackson

Sun, 09 Nov 2014 21:45:49 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) had just three carries for 10 yards in the team's Week 10 game Sunday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson missed the team's previous game with a groin injury so it's not a big surprise to see the Bills ease him back into the mix. That being said, he isn't worth using at FantasyScore until he is receiving his full allotment of carries.

Sun, 09 Nov 2014 07:18:14 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) is expected to play Sunday, Nov. 9, in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Anthony Dixon's ($4,000; 8.0% of your cap) value takes a sharp hit, and he makes for a suspect play on FantasyScore.

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 10:42:46 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is questionable for Week 10.

Bills | Fred Jackson not ready to play

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 11:14:23 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) is not ready to play even though he has participated in two practices this week, according to head coach Doug Marrone.

Fantasy Tip: The team is likely taking things slow with Jackson, which means he probably will not play in Week 10. Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown probably will continue to handle the work at running back until Jackson returns. Dixon is probably the more valuable fantasy running back and could be a flex option on FantasyScore at $4,000.

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 20:01:29 -0800

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Fred Jackson's (groin) status for Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs is still uncertain, although he was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Nov. 5. "It went OK today," Jackson said. "It was a good action, first time I've done anything like that at practice. We'll see how it goes, doctors are still being doctors and being cautious so I've got to see how things progress the rest of the week."

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners will want to stay away from Jackson until he can officially play without any restrictions and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 09:34:50 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) is dressed for practice Wednesday, Nov. 5, and was working with the first-team offense during warmups.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Jackson has a chance to play in Week 10, but owners will need to watch his practice participation during the week.

Fantasy Tip: If Jackson is able to play this week, which still seems like a far cry, he'll probably be limited. If he is a no-go, Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown will again likely split backfield repetitions.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is a very big question mark for Week 10, but it will be a good sign if he practices at all this week. Jackson was originally expected to miss four weeks after suffering a partially torn groin in Week 7.

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) said he hopes to be able to return from his injury quicker than expected four-week time frame.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson probably will miss at least a few weeks, so owners should keep him on their bench until he is healthy. Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown likely will see time at running back, but Dixon probably has more fantasy value and could be a flex option.

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 07:09:05 -0700

Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) said his adductor longus pulled off the bone about a centimeter, and he felt a pop. The injury is typically a four-week injury, but surgery is not required.

Fantasy Tip: Anthony Dixon is expected to start in Jackson's absence, but Bryce Brown could figure in as well. Look for Dixon to be a solid bargain bin flex option against the New York Jets in Week 8.

The team has a bye in Week 9, so it is possible he returns in Week 10 and misses just one game.

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 14:10:26 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's sprained ankle isn't believed to be serious, so he should play in Week 6 against the New England Patriots, unless he suffers a setback during practice.

Bills | Fred Jackson outshining C.J. Spiller

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 14:06:54 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson has completely outperformed RB C.J. Spiller so far this season. A large part of that is because Jackson has seen more opportunities, especially in the receiving game. Jackson's 33 targets are second in the NFL among running backs, and 19 more than Spiller.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's age, 35, doesn't seem to be affecting him much. While Spiller does have more carries than Jackson on the season, Jackson is the much preferred option, especially in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Glenn has miss most of training camp because of an undisclosed illness but has time to prepare for the start of the season. His presence on the offensive line should help the values of EJ Manuel, C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, because he is a Pro Bowl player.

Bills | Doug Marrone talks running backs

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 13:29:27 -0700

Buffalo Bills RBs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson will likely see the bulk of the action in Buffalo's backfield this year, barring any roster changes. Head coach Doug Marrone recently frowned upon the idea of utilizing three running backs.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller has recently been involved in trade rumors, though those rumors lack substance. Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon seem to be headed for not much more than backup roles.
