Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson (knee) returned to practice this week, listed as a participant by the team. This comes at a great time for the Bills, as they recently suffered another hit to their backfield with C.J. Spiller (shoulder) going down. The extent of Jackson's participation is unknown, but there's the possibility he suits up in Week 4.
Fantasy Analysis: Jackson was a great option entering this league year, having shocked fantasy leagues in 2011 with his ability to rack up all-purpose yards for the Bills. Buffalo has a very balanced offensive attack that likes to spread the ball around and utilize the athleticism in their backfield. If Jackson is active against the New England Patriots this weekend, he is a great start, at least as a flex.
