Fred Jackson held in check, totaling 62 yards for fantasy owners

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

The veteran running back got the bulk of the carries once again, but the Buffalo Bills offense struggled as a unit. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson was supposed to have a diminished role with C.J. Spiller on the mend, but versus the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, that was not the case.

Jackson wound up out-touching Spiller by a count of 15-11, but it was during a game where not much went according to plan for a sputtering Bills offense. Controlling the clock for just 24 minutes of the game, it is not likely that the team distributed a workload that was indicative of the game plan. Despite being banged up, Jackson averaged 4.6 yards per carry, but posted a modest total of 62 yards.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson will remain a boom-or-bust flex play, as the biggest takeaway from an otherwise uninspiring game is that Jackson remains the Bills' goal-line back despite all the Spiller hype. Cashing in on a touchdown run will not be an easy task in Week 11 when the Bills take on the imposing front seven of the New York Jets, and Jackson thus remains a long shot to post gaudy fantasy numbers in the immediate future.
