Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson (groin) is officially out for Thursday's game against Miami.
Insight: Jackson took to twitter to make the announcement, himself. Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown will continue to fill in, but neither player is more than an RB3, against the solid run-defense of the Dolphins. Jackson will now 10 days to get ready for Week 12.
 
11/13/2014 3:46:00 PM
Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson will not play Thursday against Miami, according to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News.
Insight: His absence could make Bryce Brown a viable fantasy option because of his receiving skills.
 
11/12/2014 4:35:00 PM
Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Dolphins.
Insight: Jackson returned to the field last week and did not suffer a setback, so despite the questionable tag, he should continue to play through his groin injury. Jackson will likely lead the Bills in carries. Sammy Watkins is probable for Thursday.
 
11/9/2014 5:36:00 PM
Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson played Sunday, but was ineffective.
Insight: Jackson had 10 rushing yards and 39 receiving yards, on four catches. Buffalo's backfield continues to be murky, making it extremely tough on fantasy owners.
 
11/9/2014 11:49:00 AM
Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson (groin) is officially active Sunday versus Kansas City.
Insight: Groin injuries are always tough, but we'd like to think Jackson should see his normal amount of snaps. With all the byes this week, owners should start Jackson as they normally would, but expect Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown to be somewhat mixed in.
 
11/7/2014 12:10:00 PM
Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson (groin) has been back at practice, but tagged as limited in all of them.
Insight: At this point despite the vague information from the team, we don't expect him to be ready for the Week 10 game against Kansas City. Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown should handle the workload.
 
11/5/2014 1:04:00 PM
Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson (groin) returned to practice on Wednesday.
Insight: He was expected to miss four weeks, so this is good news for Jackson-owners. There is still no clarity on whether Jackson will suit up on Sunday, but this is clearly a step in the right direction.
 
10/20/2014 9:16:00 AM
Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson left Sunday's game against the Vikings with a groin injury and early estimates are from 2-4 weeks.
Insight: The running back had to be carted off the field. With C.J. Spiller out for the season, the Bills will turn to Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon.
 
10/19/2014 1:52:00 PM
Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson left Sunday's game against the Vikings with a groin injury.
Insight: Jackson is out for the game. The running back had to be carted off the field and his hands were covering his face. This gives C.J. Spiller an obvious fantasy boost.
 
10/12/2014 5:21:00 PM
Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson again received more carries then fellow running back C.J. Spiller in Week 6.
Insight: Jackson only gained 26 yards on 10 carries and caught four passes for 17 more yards, but he did score a rushing touchdown. Jackson is proving he is the better back to own in the Bills backfield.
 
10/5/2014 6:10:00 PM
Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson was a bell cow for Buffalo on Sunday against the Lions.
Insight: Jackson led the team with 10 carries and 49 yards. He also tied Sammy Watkins with seven receptions and 58 yards. In addition, Jackson scored a two-point conversion. He briefly left the game but returned shortly afterwards. Jackson is the best play in the Buffalo backfield.

9/21/2014 4:51:00 PM
Description: Buffalo running back Fred Jackson was the productive back this week with C.J. Spiller disappointing his fantasy owners.
Insight: The 33-year-old Jackson rushed six times for 34 yards, but was a big part of the passing game with eight receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown.
 
9/16/2014 3:22:00 PM
Description: Buffalo running back Fred Jackson is still getting a similar workload as C.J. Spiller though he's yet to taste the end zone.
Insight: The 33-year-old Jackson is a solid all-around runner and pass receiver and usually gets more touchdown opportunities than Spiller to keep him fantasy-worthy. Without the touchdown advantage his fantasy value as a starter is questionable.
 
8/17/2014 1:02:00 PM
Description: Buffalo running back Fred Jackson had another busy game, rushing six times for 27 yards and catching seven balls for 28 yards.
Insight: C.J. Spiller had six touches. The 33-year-old Jackson is a solid all-around runner and pass receiver and he gets the goal-line opportunites which limits Spillers' fantasy value and keeps Jackson as a viable fantasy option.
 
7/30/2014 6:05:00 PM
Description: Buffalo running back Fred Jackson has signed a one-year extension worth $2.6 million.
Insight: Jackson is now signed for the next two seasons. The extension is a sign that the team isn't ready to phase out the 33-year-old Jackson from the offense even though C.J. Spiller is healthy and the Bills acquired Bryce Brown. Jackson had 253 touches last season and scored 10 touchdowns. He'll probably see closer to 200 this season but still has RB2 upside because of his goal-line work.
 
12/22/2013 5:59:00 PM
Description: Buffalo running back Fred Jackson had 19 carries for 111 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Miami. He confirmed after the game that he played through broken ribs, according to the Buffalo News.
Insight: C.J. Spiller carried the football 20 times, but once again Jackson outperformed him as Spiller had 77 yards. The 32-year-old Jackson has rushed for 836 yards and eight touchdowns on 193 carries and caught 44 passes for 334 receiving yards and one touchdown this season.
 
11/1/2013 1:50:00 PM
Description: Buffalo running back Fred Jackson is still dealing with a sore knee, but is probable for Sunday's game against Kansas City.
Insight: Jackson and C.J. Spiller will likely share the backfield workload against the Chiefs which isn't a great situation for fantasy owners.
 
10/24/2013 11:20:00 AM
Description: Buffalo running back Fred Jackson is dealing with a sore knee, but is probable for Sunday's game against New Orleans.
Insight: Jackson, who didn't practice Wednesday, told the Buffalo News, "I'm fine. I’ll be ready to go Sunday." Given all the injuries and byes, Jackson is worthy of a fantasy start.
 
10/1/2013 11:48:00 AM
Description: Buffalo running back Fred Jackson practiced in a limited capacity Monday after spraining his MCL Sunday against Baltimore, but is more likely to play than starter C.J. Spiller (ankle).
Insight: Jackson isn't concerned about the injury though he may wear a knee brace and fully expects to play Thursday night against the Browns.
