Fred Jackson will play Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots, an NFL source told Tim Graham of the Buffalo News on Sunday. A decision won't be made on C.J. Spiller until after warm-ups, however. Jackson is still recovering from a knee injury suffered in the season opener against the New York Jets. Spiller is dealing with shoulder injury suffered last week against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Impact: The fantasy prospects for Jackson, Spiller and Tashard Choice are very hazy at the moment. How carries will be split will depend a lot on whether or not Spiller plays, and then whether Jackson is 100 percent and able to handle a full load. Though any one of the three would be a solid fantasy option if he had the backfield to himself, an unclear depth chart makes this perilous fantasy situation.
