Fred Jackson held out of Bills practice: Fantasy implications

Jim Rogash

Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson (concussion) did not practice on Monday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson did not practice on Monday as he still has not been cleared to return. Jackson suffered a concussion in Week 10 and did not play in last Thursday's win over the Miami Dolphins.

Jackson had been sharing backfield duties with C.J. Spiller, who had 91 yards rushing and 130 combined yards against the Dolphins. Jackson's status for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts has not yet been determined.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will have to monitor this situation as the week goes along as Jackson will have had extra time to get ready for Week 12. Spiller has been very effective this season and turned in a strong game last Thursday.

Jackson's return to the lineup would cut into Spiller's fantasy value but this is not a sure thing. Fantasy owners should be patient before making a decision on Jackson, while Spiller will be at worst a No. 2 fantasy running back and should be in most lineups this week.
