Fred Jackson thinks he has a 70-75% chance of playing in Week 4 against the Patriots. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (knee) has had an incredibly fast recovery from his torn LCL, and after coach Chan Gailey confirmed that he will return to practice this week, Jackson told reporters that he has a 70-75% chance of playing in Week 4 against the New England Patriots and will be sporting a custom brace. The Bills were down to third-stringer Tashard Choice after C.J. Spiller went down with a sprained shoulder Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: With Spiller expected to miss a couple weeks, Jackson's status will be closely monitored this week, and we'll keep you updated every day here at the Fantasy News Desk. Choice stepped up with 91 yards against the Browns, and will be a reasonable RB2/flex play if Jackson isn't ready to go this week.
