Fred Jackson is inactive for Sunday's game between the Bills and Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications.
Fred Jackson is inactive for Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs. Jackson suffered a sprained right knee injury during the team's season opener against the New York Jets last week. The running back is expected to sit until at least Week 4.
Fantasy Impact: No surprise here, with reports during the week indicating that Jackson would be missing a significant period of time. C.J. Spiller will handle the rushing load today for Buffalo, coming of a 169-yard performance last week after Jackson left the game. Expect plenty of touches as a ball carrier and receiver for the explosive back.
