Fred Jackson will practice Wednesday, and is anticipating in Week 4 when the Bills take on the Patriots. We break down the fantasy implications.

Fred Jackson will practice Wednesday as he prepares himself to join the Buffalo Bills' for their Week 4 matchup against the New England Patriots, according to the Buffalo News. Jackson is recovering from a right knee injury suffered during the season opener against the New York Jets. On Monday he gave himself a "70 to 75 percent chance" of playing against the Pats.

Fantasy Impact: C.J. Spiller may also play in Week 4 after suffering a shoulder injury last week, though he appears less likely than Jackson. This is good news for Jackson fantasy owners who missed their window of opportunity to acquire Spiller. The veteran back has a chance to take back his original role within the offense, though if he struggles against a stout Pats defensive front there will still be controversy when Spiller returns healthy.
