Fred Jackson feels much better running the ball. We break down the fantasy implications.

Fred Jackson did not wear a knee brace for the first time in three weeks against the Cardinals. Jackson says he still has some work to do, but he is moving around better and his knee is getting closer to 100 percent.

After suffering the knee injury in Week 1, Jackson continues to work to get back to full strength. He carried the ball 16 times for 53 yards and one touchdown on Sunday, adding five catches for 30 yards in the receiving game.

Fantasy Impact: C.J. Spiller outperformed Jackson in the ground game, rushing for 88 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. It doesn't look like the Bills will favor either, though, as the two backs continue to split the workload.

Next week Jackson will have a good chance at putting up big fantasy points again. He'll take on a Titans defense that is allowing 130 yards rushing per game.
