Bills RB Fred Jackson vows to battle for starting job
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The assumption is that newly acquired stud running back LeSean McCoy is set to start for the Bills in 2015. But one man refuses to take that for granted.

That man is Fred Jackson.

The veteran back knows that McCoy is getting the big money. He understands that at 34 years old, the Bills might be looking to phase him out. But he vows not to go down without a fight.

"I know they want [McCoy] to be the 'bell cow.'" McCoy told the Buffalo News. "They want him to take the majority of the load. But I'm not going to make it easy for him. I'm not going to just hand it to him and say, 'Here's the job.'"

Jackson, along more recently with C.J. Spiller, had served as the Bills' featured back for eight years. But he is coming off a season in which a groin-muscle tear reduced his effectiveness. Jackson rushed for just 525 yards last year and a career-low 3.7 YPC.

Report: Bills say Fred Jackson 'isn't going anywhere'
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Despite trading for Lesean McCoy, the Bills have no intention of getting rid of running back Fred Jackson

Tim Graham of the Buffalo News reported that a Bills source said Jackson "isn't going anywhere". Graham said a second source reported that new Bills owner Terry Pegula got involved with the decision to make sure Jackson stayed with the team. 

Graham later reported that the Bills have discussed a contract restructuring with Jackson, but the Bills told him they want him to stay.

Jackson has spent all eight years of his NFL career with the Bills. He rushed for 525 yards and two touchdowns last season.

Bills RB Fred Jackson excited to play for new coach Rex Ryan
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Bills veteran running back Fred Jackson said he hasn't had the opportunity to meet with new coach Rex Ryan, but that didn't stop him from expressing his excitement about the new coaching regime in Buffalo.

"I can't wait to play for him. I've heard nothing but good things," Jackson said Wednesday of Ryan during an interview on ESPN New York 98.7 FM. "I'm looking forward to that [first] conversation when I sit down and talk to him."

The Bills finished 9-7 in 2014, which was their best record since 2004. While Jackson believes Ryan is going to "be that catalyst that comes in and pushes us over that hump," he didn't have many bad things to say about coach Doug Marrone, who opted out of his contract New Year's Eve.

"I thought he was a tremendous coach," Jackson said. "He showed up, he worked hard, he pushed players to give their best effort. He got us to a 9-7 record -- we hadn't won nine games in 10 years. There's definitely some things about him that made him a great coach. It's just the way he exited. I don't think anybody expected that. 

"Players, the way we found out is we got a generic text from him, saying that he was moving on and he had chosen to opt out of his contract."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Bills running back Fred Jackson had 18 carries for 58 yards and one catch for four yards in Buffalo's 17-9 win over the Patriots Sunday.

Jackson was unable to break free for a long gain in the game, with his longest run of the day going for eight yards.

Jackson finishes the year 525 yards and two touchdowns on the ground after missing two games earlier in the year with a groin injury.

One way or another, Fred Jackson gets his
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Trailing early Week 16 at Oakland with their playoff hopes on the line, the Bills didn't stick with the running game for long, attempting only three runs in the second half. But in a way, that worked to running back Fred Jackson's advantage. He's such a good pass-catcher out of the backfield that he still topped 100 total yards, doing so for the first time since returning from a groin injury in Week 12.

Even with the return of C.J. Spiller from a long-term shoulder injury, Jackson still led the Bills in carries, but with only six for 10 yards. He also led the team in catches with nine for 93 yards. He had 10 catches just two weeks ago, so clearly, he's a PPR stud.

Is he worth starting in standard leagues as well? Well, he's also gotten 20 carries twice in five games since returning. He hasn't been as effective on the ground as through the air, but yards are yards, however he gets them.

Their matchup Week 17 at New England will probably force the Bills to go pass-heavy again, so unless you're stacked at running back, you can find a spot for Jackson in your lineup.
