Fred Jackson is inactive for Sunday's game between the Bills and the Browns. We break down the fantasy implications.
Fred Jackson is inactive for Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills and the Cleveland Browns, according to the team's official site. Jackson sat out practice throughout the past week while rehabbing a knee injury suffered in the season opener. He has been targeting a Week 5 return, though head coach Chan Gailey had hinted that the running back might be ready for Week 4 against the New England Patriots.
Fantays Impact: C.J. Spiller will once again feature in the Bills' backfield, and could be a better fantasy option even when Jackson is healthy enough to return. We'll worry about that when the time comes. For now, Spiller is a must-stat in just about every fantasy format this week against the Browns.
