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 trade for RB Bryce Brown
May 12 8:53 am
Buffalo Bills acquired running back Bryce Brown from the Philadelphia Eagles during Day 3 of the NFL Draft. To acquire Brown, the Bills traded a conditional draft pick, based on what they receive from the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for receiver Stevie Johnson. If Johnson meets undisclosed performance criteria, the Bills will receive a third-round pick in 2015. If not, it will be a 2015 fourth-rounder, and that pick would in turn be sent to Philadelphia. If the Bills do get San Francisco's third rounder, the pick they send to the Eagles will be a 2016 fourth-round pick. However, if Brown meets certain performance critera, the Bills will send their 2016 third-round pick to the Eagles. (Buffalo News)
Fantasy Impact: Brown goes from one crowded backfield to another, as the Bills are no slouches at the position with C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, although Jackson turned 33 in February. The team sees potential in Brown with his impressive speed. He looked good in a handful of starts in 2012, but never really separated himself from teammate Chris Polk last season on the Eagles. Brown is a player to keep tabs on but expectations should be very low unless an injury sidelines Spiller.
