Fred Jackson feels much better about his knee and is ready to ditch the brace. We break down the fantasy implications.
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (knee) appears to be getting back to 100%. According to the Bills' official Twitter,Jackson says his knee feels "tremendously stronger" and he's ready to get rid of the brace he's been wearing the past two games. Jackson has been slow to come back, getting just 58 rushing yards on 22 carries since rushing back from a torn LCL.
Fantasy Impact: Jackson won't remove the brace until he gets doctor's clearance, and we'll see how the knee responds afterwards - he's been noticeably slower and showed little burst the past two games. He is also still splitting time with C.J. Spiller, who's dealing with injury troubles of his own. Jackson and Spiller are poor fantasy options against the Cardinals' defense in Week 6.
