Dixon split touches nearly evenly with teammate Bryce Brown, outcarrying Brown 10-6 but seeing limited work in the passing game. If Fred Jackson is able to play in Week 12 against the Jets, Dixon could have a hard time finding more than a few touches. He's managed 278 yards on 68 carries along with 28 yards on five catches but has failed to score a touchdown.
He was not targeted in the passing game. Dixon visits the Dolphins on Thursday.
Dixon led the team in carries with nine, and looked like the most effective of the three backs in that facet of the game. However, he was a non-factor in the passing game, while Bryce Brown led the team with six receptions for 65 yards and Jackson hauled in four passes of his own for 39 yards.
We have just one game's worth of stats to see how the team used their three backs, so there really isn't much we can take out of this. Heading into Week 11 against the Dolphins Thursday, this situation remains a tough one to figure out for Fantasy owners, with all three touching the ball between seven and 13 times. Brown had the most productive game, finishing with 9 Fantasy points, but he had also been a non-factor in the passing game before Sunday, so who knows if he can keep that up.
With this kind of tough matchup on the way, you may be best passing on all three of the Bills' backs in Week 11.
The Chiefs have yet to allow a touchdown to a running back this season, with just two backs even reaching double figures in Fantasy scoring against them. That doesn't bode well in general for a Bills' backfield that is likely to be a time share, and especially nto with
The Bills will likely try to spread the playing time out between the three if Jackson is able to play, but even without Jackson it's awfully hard to rely on anyone here. Unless you are desperate, the Bills' backfield seems like a stay-away situation for Week 10.
In their first game without injured running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, the
Coach Doug Marrone told the website that Brown would have played more if the Bills had used their spread attack. Buffalo led throughout and was in "more of a ground-and-pound mode," which favored the bruising Dixon, the report said.
