Fred Jackson will play Sunday against the Patriots, according to reports. C.J. Spiller is uncertain, but still hopeful. We break down the fantasy implications.

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.
