Fred Jackson could play Sunday if all goes well: Fantasy implications

Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Barring any setbacks, the Buffalo Bills expect Fred Jackson to play Sunday against the Patriots. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Buffalo Bills have confirmed, via their official Twitter, that RB Fred Jackson (knee) will be available to play Sunday against the New England Patriots "barring any setbacks." Jackson missed the last two games with a torn LCL, but his recovery has gone much faster than anyone expected. He was limited in practice Thursday, but coach Chan Gailey remains optimistic about his status.

Fantasy Impact: We're still playing this by ear, so don't lock Jackson into your lineups yet. Reading the tea leaves, I expect him to be listed as questionable on Friday's injury reports and possibly a game time decision--it's still very much a day-to-day situation. At the very least, keep Tashard Choice in your back pocket.
