    Bills' Anthony Dixon: Listed as active Sunday

    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.

    Bills' Anthony Dixon: Limited practice Wednesday

    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.

    Bills' Anthony Dixon: Should serve as No. 2 this week

    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.

    Bills' Anthony Dixon: Non-existent role in Sunday's loss

    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.

    Bills RB Anthony Dixon gets his chance in Week 5

    Bills running back Anthony Dixon will get an opportunity to display his talents Sunday in Tennessee with backfield mates LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams ruled out. The team and Rex Ryan have been talking all week about "Boobie Time" and now he'll receive that chance. Dixon will get the first crack at getting the ground game going against a Titans defense that hasn't been great against the run. On the flip side, Dixon doesn't have a track record of being a feature back and there are already rumblings that that team will mix in Dan Herron and Cierre Wood if he turns into a bust. That all said, he's the Buffalo back to own if you're in a Week 5 pinch.

    Bills RB Karlos Williams misses first practice of Week 5

While the Bills have yet to rule Williams out this week, coach Rex Ryan suggested Wednesday that in the event that both LeSean McCoy and Williams are unavailable Sunday against the Titans, Anthony Dixon would start Week 5.

    Bills RB Anthony Dixon has limited production in Week 4 loss to Giants

    Bills running back Anthony Dixon did not receive a carry in Buffalo's loss to the Giants on Sunday. He was targeted three times in the passing game, hauling in two balls for 20 yards. For those who thought Dixon might get some more action in the rushing game following the injury to LeSean McCoy, it was the Karlos Williams Show on Sunday, and even that wasn't much of a show. Dixon remains limited to short-yardage and special teams situations, though there's some talk McCoy could be out several weeks. Should anything happen to Williams, Dixon might get some added responsibility.

    Bills RB Anthony Dixon scores in defeat of Colts

    The bad news for Bills running back Anthony Dixon on Sunday was that he gained just one yard on three carries. The good news is that his 1-yard score helped his team upset Indianapolis. Dixon plunged into the end zone five minutes into the third quarter to give Buffalo its biggest lead of the afternoon at 24-0. He will seek another score in Week 2 against New England.

    Bills' Lynn lists Karlos Williams as the No. 2 running back

    Bills running backs coach Anthony Lynn said rookie Karlos Williams will resume the role of No. 2 running back when healthy. He has been sidelined since mid-August due to an undisclosed injury. "Absolutely," Lynn told ESPN.com. "Anthony Dixon unfortunately didn't have a training camp. And so he didn't get to compete with those guys. I have a pretty good idea of what Boobie can do and what he can bring to the table, but it was unfortunate what happened to Karlos with the injury -- not necessarily the injury, but the medical condition -- so yeah, I'm gonna throw him right back in there where he left off. "I've been very pleased with his growth and his development. The guy only played running back [at Florida State] for a year-and-a-half, and he came in here and he really listened and took the coaching. He's like a sponge. And I guess what I like about him is that he didn't have any bad habits to break, so he just does what you tell him to do."
