Fantasy Outlook
With C.J. Spiller struggling with a lingering ankle injury last season, Jackson assumed the lead role at running back in the Bills offense and put together a surprisingly solid season. He amassed 890 yards and nine touchdowns on 206 carries while adding 375 yards and another score on 46 receptions. He was also remarkably consistent despite generally splitting the load with Spiller, hitting double digit fantasy points in 10 of 16 games. While FJax excelled in 2013, the truth is that the Bills would dearly love for Spiller to assume more of a workhorse role and repeat his performance from the 2012 season when he topped 1,700 total yards with eight touchdowns. Jackson has proven that he can produce when called upon but don't go into your draft or auction relying on him to be anything more than a low end flex in leagues that employ that position, particularly with Bryce Brown potentially eating into some of his workload. He is, however, a great handcuff for Spiller owners and his flex value is enhanced given his role inside the five yard line.
Bills RB Jackson likely OUT for TNF

Fantasy Impact: This is a bit surprising considering Jackson returned to action last Sunday, but the short week likely didn't help him. Jackson's absence bolsters the prospects of Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon, but they will continue to split carries and, coupled with a relatively tough matchup, consider them as low end flex options.

Bills RB Spiller breaks collarbone, done for season

Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller broke his collarbone in Sunday's game. He left in the first half and did not return. He will require surgery and is done for the season. (ESPN)
Fantasy Impact: Spiller was underperforming this year for the Buffalo Bills as Fred Jackson was outplaying him. There were rumors of Spiller possibly being traded prior to the NFL trade deadline. He may have played his last game for the Bills as he becomes an unrestricted free agent after the season. Dynasty league players will hold and wait to see where Spiller is destined to play next season. With Jackson also injured, Bryce Brown now comes off the game day inactive list to audition to be a part of the Bills longer-term plans.

Bills RB Jackson suffers groin injury

Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson suffered a groin injury on Sunday. He was carted off the field in the first half and did not return. He is expected to be out about four weeks. (ESPN)
Fantasy Impact: Prior to injury, Jackson was defying Father Time producing at a high level, especially in PPR leagues. This injury is a major setback for him and the Buffalo Bills. With C.J. Spiller also getting injured in this game and likely out for the year, Buffalo turns to Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown. Brown, although inactive all season, is a primary waiver wire option for this week.
