Fred Jackson Fantasy: Bills RB Top 170 Yards From Scrimmage

Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson rushed for more than 100 yards for the third consecutive game. Jackson ran for 120 yards on 26 carries in a lopsided win over the Washington Redskins this week. Despite not scoring a touchdown, Jackson made his fantasy owners happy by adding 74 receiving yards today. 

Jackson has been among the best fantasy backs in the NFL in most formats, not bad for a guy that was overlooked until after the first round in most leagues. He has now had a rushing touchdown in five straight games, and at least five receptions in his last four, making him a great option in PPR leagues as well.

With nasty weather coming in Buffalo, Jackson should receive even more emphasis within the Bills' offense. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been gradually de-emphasized throughout the season anyway. He hasn't thrown more than 34 times in a game since Week 3 coming off a hot start to the season, giving Jackson even more touches.
