Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson had 23 touches and 98 yards in Week 15.
Insight: Jackson gained 71 of those yards on the ground and had three catches for 27 yards as well. It's too bad he couldn't find the end zone, but not bad numbers from Jackson.
 
12/8/2014 11:03:00 AM
Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson was a busy guy Sunday, rushing eight times for 35 yards and catching 10 of 14 targets for 37 yards.
Insight: Jackson appears to have reasserted himself as the feature back in Buffalo, but his 18 touches didn't produce very good results. He'll continue to be the workhorse because the other options aren't very good.

Description: Bills running back Fred Jackson rushed 21 times for 70 yards against the Browns.
Insight: Jackson appears to have reasserted himself as the feature back in Buffalo. Anthony Dixon was the Bills second leading rusher with six carries and 25 yards. Jackson is solid FLEX player moving forward.

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.

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.

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.
