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.

Bills running backs in tough spot for Week 10
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Bills gave the bulk of the work to Anthony Dixon over Bryce Brown in Week 8, but neither really showed much in their first extended tryout for the starting running back spot. Unfortunately, that could remain the case in Week 10 as well, with a tough matchup against the Chiefs on the way.

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 Fred Jackson's return to practice Wednesday.

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.

Anthony Dixon plays 41 snaps, Bryce Brown 14
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

In their first game without injured running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, the Bills gave Anthony Dixon a lot more work than Bryce Brown. Dixon played 41 of 55 snaps while Brown played 14 snaps, reports ESPN.com.

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.
