Bills backfield situation becomes cloudier
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Bills running back Fred Jackson saw his role return to normal in Week 12 against the Jets, and that shifted the dynamic of the backfield drastically Monday.

Jackson got 13 touches Monday, his highest total since before he suffered the groin injury in mid-October, and received some goal-line work too. He mostly split time in the backfield with Anthony Dixon, who rushed for 54 yards on 12 carries, including a touchdown, while Bryce Brown received just six carries for 20 yards and was held without a catch.

Jackson saw the field most out of the three, as he had 48 snaps, compared to 20 for Dixon and 15 for Brown. It seems like that might be the split moving forward, which will make both Brown and Dixon especially hard to rely on. Neither player showed much in Jackson's absence to make you want to start them anyways, so they are best left on the bench most weeks moving forward, with Dixon looking like just an emergency start at best.

Fred Jackson, Anthony Dixon leads Bills' backfield
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Bills running backs Fred Jackson and Anthony Dixon each received 13 touches in Monday's blowout of the Jets, while running back Bryce Brown got only six.

Returning from a groin injury, Jackson started and carried 10 times for 32 yards, including a 5-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He caught three of four targets for 13 yards.

Dixon took advantage of a demoralized Jets defense when he rumbled for a 30-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. He finished with 12 carries for 54 yards and added an 8-yard grab. Brown ran six times for 20 yards. He was not targeted in the passing game.

All three backs will face the Browns in Week 13.

Bills RB Anthony Dixon plods for 48 yards in loss vs. Dolphins
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bills running back Anthony Dixon rushed for 35 yards on 10 carries and added two receptions for 13 yards in his team's 22-9 loss to the Dolphins Thursday.

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.

Week 10 provides little clarity for Bills' backfield
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Fred Jackson returned to the backfield for the Bills in Week 10 against the Chiefs, but the team still split the workload pretty evenly, with Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown getting plenty of touches in the 17-13 loss.

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.
