Fred Jackson rushed for 34 yards and a touchdown on seven carries during Saturday's preseason game between the Bills and the Steelers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Fred Jackson rushed for 34 yards and a touchdown on just seven carries during the Buffalo Bills' Week 3 preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday. He has remained healthy this season after missing six games in 2011 with a fractured right fibula. Tashard Choice led the Bills in rushing with 50 yards on seven carries.

Analysis: Jackson has made it almost all the way through preseason without any injuries, and most importantly he has been his usual productive self despite a passing game that has floundered at times. His 4.9 yards per carry against a stout Steelers' front seven is a very good sign for a back that will probably still somehow go overlooked in a lot of fantasy drafts. Choice had a nice outing too, though he's no threat to take anything away from Jackson. At this point, he is simply looking to be the No. 3 back on the depth chart behind Jackson and C.J. Spiller.
