Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. Jackson left the season opener against the Jets with a torn LCL, but his recovery has gone faster than anyone could have predicted, and coach Chan Gailey expects to start him barring any setbacks.
Fantasy Impact: Jackson would be pushed as the starter under normal circumstances, but backup and breakout fantasy star C.J. Spiller is also dealing with an injury of his own, and seems less likely to play on Sunday. The Patriots' run defense has been fairly stout this season, ranking 7th in fewest rushing yards allowed, so Jackson is an iffy play this week even when healthy. I would stash both backs on the bench for now.
