Latest Updates

 

Fred Jackson leads all Bills RBs with 70 yards vs. Packers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) 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.


Bryce Brown, Anthony Dixon not used much Week 14


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Bills running backs Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon didn't get many opportunities behind starter Fred Jackson in Sunday's 24-17 loss at Denver. Brown ran three times for 11 yards and caught two passes for 14 yards.

Dixon rushed three times for 15 yards and was not targeted in the passing game. They'll face the Packers in Week 15.


Trio of Bills make small contributions to Week 13 win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Running backs Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown and tight end Scott Chandler all chipped in as the Bills beat the Browns on Sunday.

Dixon rushed for 25 yards on six carries while Brown added three attempts for 11 yards. Chandler caught two passes, but was held to a mere three yards.


Bills backfield situation becomes cloudier


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) Bills running back Fred Jackson saw his role return to normal in Week 12 against the Jets, and that shifted the dynamic of the backfield drastically Monday.

Jackson got 13 touches Monday, his highest total since before he suffered the groin injury in mid-October, and received some goal-line work too. He mostly split time in the backfield with Anthony Dixon, who rushed for 54 yards on 12 carries, including a touchdown, while Bryce Brown received just six carries for 20 yards and was held without a catch.

Jackson saw the field most out of the three, as he had 48 snaps, compared to 20 for Dixon and 15 for Brown. It seems like that might be the split moving forward, which will make both Brown and Dixon especially hard to rely on. Neither player showed much in Jackson's absence to make you want to start them anyways, so they are best left on the bench most weeks moving forward, with Dixon looking like just an emergency start at best. 


Fred Jackson, Anthony Dixon leads Bills' backfield


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Bills running backs Fred Jackson and Anthony Dixon each received 13 touches in Monday's blowout of the Jets, while running back Bryce Brown got only six.

Returning from a groin injury, Jackson started and carried 10 times for 32 yards, including a 5-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He caught three of four targets for 13 yards.

Dixon took advantage of a demoralized Jets defense when he rumbled for a 30-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. He finished with 12 carries for 54 yards and added an 8-yard grab. Brown ran six times for 20 yards. He was not targeted in the passing game.

All three backs will face the Browns in Week 13.


Bills RB Bryce Brown catches seven passes vs. Dolphins


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) Bills running back Bryce Brown rushed for only 14 yards on six carries but also caught seven of his team-high 10 targets for 57 yards in his team's 22-9 loss to the Dolphins Thursday.

Brown managed a few quality plays early, including a 19-yard reception followed immediately by an eight-yard rush, but largely struggled in the game, he lost yardage on three of his four touches in the third quarter and finished that quarter with a net of zero yards. He posted a quality performance against the Chiefs last week but has produced subpar numbers in his other two games, particularly while running the ball.

Brown still has the chance to be a contributor over the remainder of the season in the C.J. Spiller role of the offense. He'll look for a better showing in Week 12 against the Jets.


Bills RB Bryce Brown draws start in Week 11 vs. Dolphins


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) The Bills announced Thursday that Bryce Brown will start at running back in the team's Thursday night matchup against the Dolphins.

Brown flashed some explosion in Week 10 but also lost a fumble on a play that appeared to be headed for a touchdown. His ability to work the edge could give him a better chance to find success in the running game than teammate Anthony Dixon. Fred Jackson is inactive for the game, leaving the rushing attack in the hands of Brown and Dixon.


Bryce Brown totals 100 yards but coughs up potential touchdown


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Bills running back Bryce Brown had a big day against the Chiefs in Week 10. It could have been a lot bigger.

Brown recorded 100 yards from scrimmage, running seven times for 35 yards (5.0 ypc) and catching six of seven targets for a team-high 65 yards. But on Buffalo's first second-half drive, Brown was a few steps from the end zone when Chiefs defensive back Ron Parker punched the ball out from behind. Instead of a 17-yard touchdown, it was a touchback.

Brown visits the Dolphins on Thursday.


Week 10 provides little clarity for Bills' backfield


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Fred Jackson returned to the backfield for the Bills in Week 10 against the Chiefs, but the team still split the workload pretty evenly, with Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown getting plenty of touches in the 17-13 loss.

Dixon led the team in carries with nine, and looked like the most effective of the three backs in that facet of the game. However, he was a non-factor in the passing game, while Bryce Brown led the team with six receptions for 65 yards and Jackson hauled in four passes of his own for 39 yards.

We have just one game's worth of stats to see how the team used their three backs, so there really isn't much we can take out of this. Heading into Week 11 against the Dolphins Thursday, this situation remains a tough one to figure out for Fantasy owners, with all three touching the ball between seven and 13 times. Brown had the most productive game, finishing with 9 Fantasy points, but he had also been a non-factor in the passing game before Sunday, so who knows if he can keep that up. 

With this kind of tough matchup on the way, you may be best passing on all three of the Bills' backs in Week 11. 


Bills running backs in tough spot for Week 10


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) The Bills gave the bulk of the work to Anthony Dixon over Bryce Brown in Week 8, but neither really showed much in their first extended tryout for the starting running back spot. Unfortunately, that could remain the case in Week 10 as well, with a tough matchup against the Chiefs on the way.

The Chiefs have yet to allow a touchdown to a running back this season, with just two backs even reaching double figures in Fantasy scoring against them. That doesn't bode well in general for a Bills' backfield that is likely to be a time share, and especially nto with Fred Jackson's return to practice Wednesday.

The Bills will likely try to spread the playing time out between the three if Jackson is able to play, but even without Jackson it's awfully hard to rely on anyone here. Unless you are desperate, the Bills' backfield seems like a stay-away situation for Week 10. 


Anthony Dixon plays 41 snaps, Bryce Brown 14


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) In their first game without injured running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, the Bills gave Anthony Dixon a lot more work than Bryce Brown. Dixon played 41 of 55 snaps while Brown played 14 snaps, reports ESPN.com.

Coach Doug Marrone told the website that Brown would have played more if the Bills had used their spread attack. Buffalo led throughout and was in "more of a ground-and-pound mode," which favored the bruising Dixon, the report said.


Bills RBs Anthony Dixon, Bryce Brown struggle in Week 8 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Bills rushing attack struggled mightily with the team's top two running backs sidelined, with Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown combining for just 59 yards on 29 carries in the team's 43-23 win over the Jets in Week 8.

Dixon spearheaded the attack, getting 22 carries but rushing for only 44 yards. Despite Dixon struggling, Brown was unable to make his mark, rushing for just 15 yards on seven carries. Of the two, only Brown was targeted in the passing game, but he was unable to catch any of his three targets.

With C.J. Spiller out for the year and Fred Jackson possibly sidelined a few more weeks, the Bills may opt to turn to the trade market to give the rushing attack a boost. The Bills head into a Week 9 bye with a 5-3 record before facing the Chiefs in Week 10.


Week 9 gives little insight on Bills' backs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Bills running back Anthony Dixon got plenty of work in Week 8's blowout win over the Jets, but the performance hardly told us much about the Fantasy viability of either he or Bryce Brown moving forward.

Entering the game, we assumed Brown had the higher ceiling than Dixon, and that could still be true. Frankly, neither back looked particularly good against a tough rush defense, as Dixon rushed for just 44 yards on 22 carries, with a long run of just seven yards, while Brown contributed just 15 yards on seven opportunities.

We will have to wait two weeks before we get to see what this duo might be capable of in a different matchup, since the Bills are on a bye in Week 9. However, right now, neither took advantage of the opportunity in Week 8 enough to look like a must-start Fantasy option down the stretch.


Bills RB Fred Jackson officially ruled out for Week 8


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) As expected, Bills running back Fred Jackson was officially ruled out for Week 8 against the Jets because of a groin injury, per WGR.

Jackson sustained the injury in the previous week against the Vikings and will likely require at least two weeks of recovery. The team will likely turn to Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon to shoulder the load against New York.


Taking a look at the waiver wire for running backs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With a slew of running backs injured or on bye in Week 8, the waiver-wire is going to be a feeding frenzy this week. In his weekly waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg, tabs Bills back Bryce Brown (4 percent ownership) as the must-add option.

Brown is set to see a larger role in the wake of injuries to C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who can be freely dropped at this point. The Rams' Tre Mason (17 percent), the Jaguars' Denard Robinson (5 percent), the Saints' Travaris Cadet (4 percent) and the Panthers' Jonathan Stewart (47 percent) round out the rest of the top-five for the running back priority list. 


Bills backs might get off to slow start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) Bills running backs Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon don't have a great matchup on the way in what will be their first games with an expanded role in Week 8, but both should still be on Fantasy radars.

Both Brown and Dixon will be among the most-added players on waivers this week, with C.J. Spiller already out for the season and Fred Jackson likely to miss some time. Brown is considered the more promising option of the two long-term, though there is a good chance both could struggle in Week 8 against the Jets.

The Jets have allowed just four touchdowns to opposing running backs this season, and three of them have been through the air. Opposing backs are averaging just 76.7 yards on 3.7 yards per carry on the ground, so the Bills' running game could be in for a rough outing.

The team hasn't given much of an indication as to how the playing time will be split up, but the beat writer for the team's official website thinks Dixon will at least get the edge in passing downs. Brown is the more talented runner, but the team may play it safe, at least at first, and split time between the two.

The Bills follow up Sunday's game with a bye in Week 9, so we might have to wait until Week 10 to really see how the running game shakes out. If you have the roster space, either player will be worth placing a waiver-wire bid on, but they may be tough to rely on at first. 


Bills not ready to name starter between Anthony Dixon, Bryce Brown


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Bills coach Doug Marrone is not ready to tip his hand on who he intends to use in the backfield Week 8 against the Jets. With C.J. Spiller likely out for the season with a broken clavicle and Fred Jackson sidelined at least four weeks with a groin injury, the Bills will likely turn to Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown for the majority of the workload on Sunday.

"We have a little bit of a feel" for what Dixon and Brown offer, from games and practice, respectively, Marrone said during his Monday news conference, per the team's official website.


Bills' Jackson: Bills won't 'miss a beat' with Brown, Dixon at RB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Bills running backs Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon are expected to shoulder the workload after running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller suffered injuries Sunday against the Vikings.

While only time will tell how coach Doug Marrone intends to use his new backfield formation, Jackson spoke highly of Brown when asked specifically about the third-year back during an interview Monday with WGR Sportsradio 550.

"He is an every down back," Jackson said, per the team's official website. "He can do it all. He’s a guy who can carry the ball 20-25 times. He’s a guy who can pass protect his butt off and run routes well out of the backfield. We won’t miss a beat with a guy like him. He’s a guy who is going to come out and can produce. We know what he’s capable of doing. I’m excited to see him get his opportunity. It comes at a time when we’ve lost a couple of guys who were valuable to the team, but that’s why we have Bryce and Boobie. They can step in and shoulder that weight and we don’t expect to miss a beat."


Anthony Dixon, Bryce Brown names to watch for Bills


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Bills could be without their top two running backs after Week 7, which could thrust Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown into larger roles moving forward.  

With C.J. Spiller's season likely done and Fred Jackson dealing with a groin injury, Dixon carried the ball 13 times for 51 yards, while adding 15 yards on three receptions. He should see a bigger role than he has so far this season, but it might be Brown who has more value for Fantasy owners, since Dixon has never carried the ball more than 14 times in his five NFL seasons.

The Bills acquired Brown this offseason but have yet to use him. However, he has more potential than Dixon and figures to be a bigger part of the team's future anyways. Brown had thrived in limited opportunities in the past, rushing for 387 yards and four touchdowns on 71 carries over the course of four games late in his rookie season with the Eagles.

Whether Jackson will be sidelined moving forward remains to be seen, but Brown looks like the back to target on waivers this week. He should finally see the field and has enough upside to make him worth a flier. 


Mike Williams among Bills inactives Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Bills wide receiver Mike Williams, safety Aaron Williams, cornerback Ross Cockrell, running back Bryce Brown, linebacker Randell Johnson, tackle Cyrus Kouandjio and wide receiver Marcus Easley were all ruled inactive Week 6 vs. New England.

Bills announce Week 5 inactives vs. Lions


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Bills have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions: defensive tackle Kyle Williams (knee), linebacker Nigel Bradham (knee), guard Chris Williams (back), wide receiver Marcus Easley (knee), cornerback Ross Cockrell, running back Bryce Brown and offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio.

Bradham and Kyle Williams were doubtful to play on the team's final injury report, and the absence of both key defenders could cause problems against the Lions offense. Easley and Chris Williams had already been ruled out Friday.


Bills announce Week 4 inactives


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) The Bills have designated the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 4 battle with the Texans: wide receivers Marquise Goodwin (concussion) and Marcus Easley (knee), linebacker Randell Johnson (knee), offensive lineman Chris Williams and Cyrus Kouandjio, running back Bryce Brown and cornerback Ross Cockrell.

Bills announce Week 3 inactives


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Linebacker Keith Rivers (groin) headlines the Bills' inactive list for Week 3 against the Chargers. Joining him on the sidelines are linebacker Randell Johnson, defensive back Ross Cockrell, tight end Chris Gragg, running back Bryce Brown, and offensive linemen Cyril Richardson and Cyrus Kouandjio.

Bills announce seven inactives for Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Bills seven-player inactive list for Week 2 is as follows: defensive backs Ross Cockrell and Jonathan Meeks, running back Bryce Brown, linebacker Keith Rivers, tight end Lee Smith, and offensive linemen Cyril Richardson and Cyrus Kouandijo. 

Stephon Gilmore among Bills inactives in Week 1


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Bills starting cornerback Stephon Gilmore is inactive for Sunday's season opener against the Bears with a groin injury.

Gilmore's absence is a plus for the Bears' talented wide-receiver corps, as cornerback is projected to be the strength of the Bills back seven on defense. Other Bills inactives include running back Bryce Brown, offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, guard Cyril Richardson, safety Jonathan Meeks, tight end Lee Smith and defensive end Jacquies Smith. Anthony Dixon, who was questionable to play with a hamstring issue, is active over Brown.
