Fred Jackson injury: Full practice but where does his fantasy value lie?

Rick Stewart

With C.J. Spiller starting, how much value does Jackson have left? We break down the fantasy implications.

Bills running back Fred Jackson (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday practice for Buffalo. Jackson has missed three games this season but looks to be in line to play against the Colts on Sunday of Week 12. However, how much will he play?

C.J. Spiller is now listed as the Bills starter and has carried it 34 more times this season to the tune of 6.6 yards per carry and also has added 31 catches for 336 yards. The future in Buffalo is Spiller, though Jackson should still be getting 10-15 touches per game.

Fantasy Take: Jackson has been a major disappointment for fantasy owners, but there's not much you can expect from a shared backfield. Even Spiller takes a hit with Jackson getting goal line carries. Jackson can't be trusted as anything more than a flex play.
