Fred Jackson totals 62 yards in win over New England Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) Bills running back Fred Jackson had 18 carries for 58 yards and one catch for four yards in Buffalo's 17-9 win over the Patriots Sunday.
Jackson was unable to break free for a long gain in the game, with his longest run of the day going for eight yards.
Jackson finishes the year 525 yards and two touchdowns on the ground after missing two games earlier in the year with a groin injury.
One way or another, Fred Jackson gets his
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/22/14) Trailing early Week 16 at Oakland with their playoff hopes on the line, the Bills didn't stick with the running game for long, attempting only three runs in the second half. But in a way, that worked to running back Fred Jackson's advantage. He's such a good pass-catcher out of the backfield that he still topped 100 total yards, doing so for the first time since returning from a groin injury in Week 12.
Even with the return of C.J. Spiller from a long-term shoulder injury, Jackson still led the Bills in carries, but with only six for 10 yards. He also led the team in catches with nine for 93 yards. He had 10 catches just two weeks ago, so clearly, he's a PPR stud.
Is he worth starting in standard leagues as well? Well, he's also gotten 20 carries twice in five games since returning. He hasn't been as effective on the ground as through the air, but yards are yards, however he gets them.
Their matchup Week 17 at New England will probably force the Bills to go pass-heavy again, so unless you're stacked at running back, you can find a spot for Jackson in your lineup.
Bills' running game sputters vs. Raiders in Week 16
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/21/14) The Bills managed just 13 yards on 13 carries as a team in Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Raiders in Week 16, with running back Fred Jackson leading the team with 10 yards on six carries.
It was an absolutely abysmal game from the Bills' rushing attack with the team's season on the line. Jackson did serve as the team's leading receiver, catching nine passes on 12 targets for 93 yards, giving him his first game with more than 100 yards from scrimmage since Week 5. Anthony Dixon rushed for seven yards on three carries.
C.J. Spiller returned from a stay on injured reserve but struggled mightily in his limited playing time. He lost four yards on four carries and added four receptions for 14 yards, putting the ball on the turf once but recovering his own fumble.
The Bills head to New England for the regular-season finale next Sunday.
Fred Jackson leads all Bills RBs with 70 yards vs. Packers
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/14/14) Bills running backs Fred Jackson, Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown combined for 117 yards on the ground during Sunday's victory over the Packers in Week 15.
Jackson led the way with 71 yards on 20 carries, averaging 3.6 yards per attempt. He caught a team-high three of six targets for 27 yards. Jackson has been held out of the end zone in each of the past three games.
Dixon took six handoffs for 26 yards, averaging 4.3 yards per attempt. He caught his only target for a gain of 5 yards. Brown carried the ball four times for 20 yards and caught one pass for a gain of 40 yards.
Fred Jackson looking like a PPR stud
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/8/14) After re-establishing himself as the clear-cut No. 1 running back with 21 carries in Week 13, the Bills' Fred Jackson got only eight Week 14 at Denver. But that's because he was so busy catching the ball after the Broncos pulled ahead early.
Jackson finished with 10 catches on 14 targets, both team highs. He gained only 37 yards on those 10 catches, but in Fantasy leagues that award a point per reception, that's still a monster performance.
Even though he's missed two games due to injury, Jackson's 53 receptions rank third among all running backs. He's had less than three in a game only once and had a three-game stretch earlier this season when he had 21.
It's clearly something the Bills rely on him to do, and because he's getting the vast majority of the carries as well, you really don't have any cause to sit him in PPR leagues. Between the rushes and receptions, Jackson's workload should be high enough to appease owners in standard leagues as well.
|Fred Jackson was one of the biggest surprises in 2013, and he's hoping for another good season in what could be his last year in Buffalo. Last season, Jackson was expected to take a backseat to C.J. Spiller. Instead, with Spiller battling injuries and inconsistent play, Jackson finished as the No. 10 Fantasy running back in standard leagues with 207 carries for 896 yards and nine touchdowns and 47 catches for 387 yards and a touchdown. The rushing and total touchdowns were a career high, as were the catch total. Jackson, 33, is entering a contract year, but he should continue to share touches with Spiller and possibly Bryce Brown, who was added via trade. How much work Jackson gets will likely depend on his own health and Spiller. While Spiller was ineffective playing hurt, Jackson played through broken ribs and a knee sprain. We expect Spiller to rebound this year, but Jackson is still worth drafting as a No. 3 Fantasy running back with a mid-round pick. If Spiller again falters, we know Jackson will be there to pick up the slack.
