Fred Jackson might return sooner than expected to the Bills lineup, hurting C.J. Spiller's value. We break down the fantasy implications.

Fred Jackson is "a little ahead of schedule" in his rehab, according to Jason La Canfora. His best-case scenario would be a return in 3-4 weeks, but now with the emergence of C.J. Spiller, the Bills will be faced with a tough decision on what to do with these two running backs.

Fantasy Impact: The good news is Jackson appears to be doing well in his recovery. The bad news for fantasy owners is Spiller won't be all on his own when Jackson gets back to action. Spiller is averaging an unbelievable 10.2 yards per carry in two games so far, leading the league in total rushing yards. Buffalo will not write off Jackson, though, so it will be an interesting dilemma to keep an eye on when they're both healthy.
