Dixon (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Though LeSean McCoy is sidelined Sunday, Dixon remains a fantasy dart in Week 16, with both Karlos Williams and Mike Gillislee ahead of him in the Bills' running back pecking order.
Dixon (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Though fellow RB LeSean McCoy has been ruled out for the contest, Dixon remains a fantasy long-shot in Week 16, with Karlos Williams and Mike Gillislee ahed of him in the Bills' backfield pecking order.
Dixon (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Even with LeSean McCoy expected to miss this week's game against the Cowboys, Dixon has fallen behind Mike Gillislee in the pecking order, and he was already behind Karlos Williams.
Dixon's teammate Karlos Williams has officially been ruled out this week due to a shoulder injury. The Bills will bring up Mike Gillislee from the practice squad, but given Dixon's experience and familiarity with the offense, he's the likely two guy behind LeSean McCoy. That said, this will be Shady's week and the best you're probably hoping for from Dixon is a few odd carries and perhaps a crack or two near the goal line.
Dixon did not log a carry or a catch in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. LeSean McCoy took all 17 carries that went to a running back, while Dan Herron at least caught two passes. Dixon had a small window of opportunity when McCoy and Karlos Williams (concussion) were out in Week 5, but he didn't do much with it. With McCoy back and Williams possibly not far behind, Dixon can be safely dropped by those that picked him based on potential volume.
