Can't trust Fred Jackson in Week 3
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

I'm a little concerned about Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller this week given the matchup with the Chargers, who have been great in stopping the ground game through two weeks. 

Andre Ellington (13 carries for 53 yards) and Marshawn Lynch (six carries for 36 yards) were held in check, but San Diego has allowed three receiving touchdowns to running backs as Stepfan Taylor, Lynch and Robert Turbin have scored.

Jackson has played second fiddle to Spiller so far this season with just 19 carries for 85 yards and five catches for 40 yards in two games (Spiller has 27 carries for 122 yards and four catches for 20 yards and a touchdown). We'll see how the touches are divided this week, but Spiller has more upside than Jackson.

And in a tough matchup, even at home, we'd only use Jackson as a flex option in deeper formats.

Fred Jackson held in check in win
by Chris Towers |

Bills running back Fred Jackson couldn't find much room to operate in a 29-10 win over the Dolphins in Week 2.

Jackson ran the ball 12 times, up from seven in the first game, but had just 24 yards on the ground. He made up for that somewhat with two receptions for 27 yards, but still fell well short of the 74 all-purpose yards he managed in the opener.

Jackson has 85 yards on 19 carries through two games, but has yet to find the end zone. He will look to break the drought in Week 3 against the Chargers.

Fred Jackson rips off decisive run in overtime win Sunday
by R.J. White |

Bills running back Fred Jackson rushed for 61 yards on seven carries while gaining 13 yards on three receptions in his team's 23-20 overtime win over the Bears in Week 1.

Jackson only had 18 rushing yards at the end of regulation, but he rumbled for 38 yards his second carry of the extra period to take his team down to the one-yard line and set up a game-winning field goal. Jackson did well to salvage his performance in overtime, and he'll look to build upon that key run when the Dolphins come to town in Week 2.

Bills offensive line to play first game together Sunday
by R.J. White |

The Bills starting offensive line will see its first playing time together in a game Sunday against the Bears, with Cordy Glenn, Chris Williams, Eric Wood, Erik Pears and Seantrel Henderson lining up left to right, the Buffalo News reports.

The Bills are walking into a hostile environment in Chicago, and the fact that the starting five on the offensive line didn't see any time together could make things difficult on running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson if the linemen suffer a communications breakdown. It also bodes well for the Chicago defense, providing an increased opportunity that a pass rusher breaks through unblocked on a missed assignment.

Fred Jackson may have trouble finding running room in Week 1
by R.J. White |

Bills running back Fred Jackson will face a Bears team in Week 1 that did a terrible job at defending the run last season. However, his Week 1 success may not be as pre-ordained as that of running mate, C.J. Spiller.

Unlike Spiller, Jackson does much of his work without the benefit of big plays, grinding out his numbers by taking what the defense gives rather than providing a home-run threat on any down. While most of the members of the Bears back seven that was responsible for surrendering so many big plays has returned, the team has overhauled the defense line, signing three new defensive ends and drafting two rotational defensive tackles.

Two of those free-agent additions are Lamarr Houston and Willie Young, the two players that graded out as the best 4-3 defensive ends in run stop percentage last season, per Pro Football Focus. With those two players in tow and second-round draft pick Ego Ferguson taking up space in the middle, Jackson could have difficulty converting on short-yardage or goal-line situations.

It's also fair to wonder how many long scoring drives the Bills will be able to put together if Jackson and the offensive line can't stymie the line's potentially improved rush defense. EJ Manuel hasn't done enough at this point in his career to trust his ability to pick defenses apart with his arm. If the Bills have trouble finding the red zone, Jackson could wind up being a Week 1 Flex option Fantasy owners come to regret.
