Free-agent RB Fred Jackson (Seahawks) is working on a one-day contract with the Buffalo Bills with the plan to retire as a member of the Bills.

  NFL | Fred Jackson wants to play    Mon Jun 5, 07:01 PM

Free-agent RB Fred Jackson (Seahawks) said he would like to play again in the NFL even though he is 36 years old. He said he hopes to receive some interest during training camp if a team loses a running back or two to injury.

Footballguys view: Jackson hasn't played since 2015 and is likely done in the league. Running back is a young man's position, and Jackson isn't the same player he used to be. Even when injuries hit in camp, we may not see Jackson get much if any interest.

  Bills | Buffalo hasn't pursued Fred Jackson    Thu Jul 21, 05:00 PM

Free-agent RB Fred Jackson (Seahawks) has not received interest from his former team in the Buffalo Bills yet.

Footballguys view: We don 't know that we expect him to, though they may still want to add some bodies to back up LeSean McCoy. Mike Gillislee hasn't shown us enough to feel good about and Jonathan Williams is exciting, but a rookie who recently was popped for a DWI. We're not sure Jackson has anything much left in the tank though as he looked just so-so in carries last year with the Seahawks.

  Seahawks | Fred Jackson still wants to play    Mon Feb 22, 03:32 PM

Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent RB Fred Jackson wants to keep playing and will not retire this offseason.

Footballguys view: Jackson could latch on with a team due to his all-purpose ability, but we don't think the market will be white-hot for his services. He may have to wait until training camp to find a new home in 2016.

  Seahawks | Seattle backfield a mystery    Fri Dec 18, 07:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll admitted that no starting running back has been named for Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns, and that everyone will find out come game time. RBs Bryce Brown, Christine Michael and Fred Jackson will all play in some capacity, and Carroll admitted that Brown and Michael are up to speed on the playbook. Even FB Derrick Coleman could see some work.

Footballguys view: No running back is a good play this week against Cleveland, but the quality of the matchup could make Brown a shot in the dark that lands. Michael is worth a pickup in deep leagues in case he asserts himself for Week 16 against St. Louis.

  Seahawks | Trio to split RB workload    Thu Dec 17, 09:00 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Bryce Brown and RB Christine Michael are expected to share the early down carries in Week 15 with RB Fred Jackson in on third downs, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Sheil Kapadia.

Footballguys view: So basically, don't start these guys as you have no idea how the split will go. If you're in a pinch, Jackson might at least vulture some touchdowns and be an RB5.

  Seahawks | Fred Jackson will be third-down back    Mon Dec 14, 06:36 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson will continue to be the team's third-down back, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: Keep this in mind if you're rushing to the waiver wire to replace Rawls. RBs DuJuan Harris and Bryce Brown are candidates to fill RB Thomas Rawls' (ankle) role in the running game.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch not ready    Mon Dec 14, 01:54 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) is at least a week or two away from returning to action after having sports hernia surgery last month. RBs DuJuan Harris and Fred Jackson will be the main ball carriers now with RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) out for the season.

Footballguys view: Without Lynch, the team is going to work both of the backs into the mix. Harris is likely to receive the first crack at the starting duties.

Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson is fine and will play in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, Oct. 22, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Jackson was uninjured after crashing his car Tuesday, Oct. 20.

  Seahawks | Fred Jackson expected to play    Sun Oct 11, 10:27 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson (ankle) is expected to play in the Week 5 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Jackson's role will be limited. There's probably not a Seahawks back worth playing today, as UDFA Rod Smith also got a call-up and might spell Thomas Rawls and Jackson at times.

  Seahawks | Fred Jackson a game-time decision    Sat Oct 10, 05:53 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson (ankle) will participate in pregame workouts so the team can decide if he will be able to play against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 5.

Footballguys view: Don't count on Jackson. Even if the veteran plays, it will be as a backup behind rookie Thomas Rawls.

  Seahawks | Fred Jackson hopes to play    Sat Oct 10, 01:33 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson (ankle) hopes to play Sunday, Oct. 11, against the Cincinnati Bengals despite nursing a sprained ankle.

Footballguys view: We're not expecting much from Jackson even if he does play. The Seahawks will use plenty of rookie Thomas Rawls as the starter with Marshawn Lynch already ruled out for Week 5.

  Seahawks | 'Hawks optimistic on Fred Jackson    Fri Oct 9, 11:29 PM

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson (ankle) will test his injury Sunday, Oct. 11, in the morning, and the team is optimistic he will be ready for the road game in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: He could play, but we're not expecting much of anything from the seasoned veteran. Instead, rookie Thomas Rawls should be the lead back with Marshawn Lynch ruled out for Week 5.

  Seahawks | Fred Jackson listed as questionable    Fri Oct 9, 04:19 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson (ankle) has made progress during the week and is listed as questionable for the Week 5 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Jackson may be able to play in the game.

Footballguys view: We know that Marshawn Lynch is out for the game against the Bengals. Jackson is a bit banged up, so that makes rookie Thomas Rawls as the team's lead back. Rawls is a low-end RB2 while Jackson is more of a desperation flex play in Week 5.

  Seahawks | Fred Jackson does not practice    Thu Oct 8, 08:54 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 8.

Footballguys view: It looks like the Thomas Rawls show, unless Marshawn Lynch suddenly gets healthy. Rawls could be a boom/bust RB2 if Lynch is out. If healthy, Lynch is a low-end RB2 due to both lingering injury concerns and an awful offensive line.

  Seahawks | Fred Jackson on the sidelines    Wed Oct 7, 08:39 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Footballguys view: Jackson hasn't been consistent enough to be a factor and he's dealing with a high ankle sprain. He won't play this weekend and it could be a while before he's back on the field.

  Seahawks | Fred Jackson not ruled out    Wed Oct 7, 05:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson (ankle) could play in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals, and head coach Pete Carroll is hopeful that the running back will play. RB Thomas Rawls will likely be a three-down back this weekend if both Jackson and RB Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) don't play.

Footballguys view: Rawls was uninspiring behind a poor offensive line and unless Marshawn Lynch is playing, there isn't much upside here. It could be even tougher against a good Cincinnati defense, so Rawls is likely to be a low-end RB4 at best even if he gets all the carries.

  Seahawks | Fred Jackson with high ankle sprain    Tue Oct 6, 01:17 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson (ankle) is dealing with a high ankle sprain, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the old veteran here. High ankle sprains are known to linger if not given plenty of time to heal. In the meantime, Thomas Rawls should continue as the primary backup behind Marshawn Lynch.

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls is expected to see a bulk of the carries in the Week 4 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Oct. 5, with RB Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) sidelined. RB Fred Jackson is also expected to rotate in.

Footballguys view: Rawls was terrific last week when Lynch had to leave the game. You should expect strong RB2 numbers from him tomorrow night.

  Seahawks | Mixed results for Fred Jackson    Mon Sep 21, 01:47 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson had two receptions for 16 yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 game against the Green Bay Packers, but he also had a lost fumble in the fourth quarter.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks couldn't do much on the ground against the Packers on Sunday night. Jackson remains a player most fantasy owners aren't rostering in 2015. However, he's a handcuff for all Marshawn Lynch owners out there....if you've got the space on your bench.

  Seahawks | Fred Jackson could play a lot    Tue Sep 8, 01:16 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson ran with the starting offense Monday, Sept. 7, in place of RB Marshawn Lynch, who was tending to a personal matter. Head coach Peter Carroll said Jackson picked up the offense effortlessly and that Jackson will 'play a lot' in the Week 1 opener against the St. Louis Rams. Jackson will step into the role of former RB Robert Turbin. Carroll sees Jackson having a key role in third-down situations, both blocking and receiving.

Footballguys view: Maybe Lynch had a stomach ache from too many Skittles. We know Jackson has at least a little left in the tank and he's a more than serviceable second running back for the Seahawks. But don't get carried away as we don't expect Lynch (who projects as a solid RB1 this week) to spend time on the bench. Carroll has to know Lynch is the engine that runs this offense (even with Jimmy Graham in the house) and the last time that engine was on the sideline, it arguably cost the Seahawks a Super Bowl.

  Seahawks | Seattle adds Fred Jackson    Fri Sep 4, 07:24 PM

Free-agent RB Fred Jackson (Bills) agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Friday, Sept. 4, on a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jackson is the best handcuff to Marshawn Lynch, but the team would likely employ a committee to replace their starter if he went down. Jackson might steal a few receptions from Lynch via third down snaps, but he'll also save Lynch some punishment, so it probably balances out.

  Seahawks | Fred Jackson likely signing with Seattle    Tue Sep 1, 08:24 AM

Free-agent RB Fred Jackson (Bills) is meeting with the Seattle Seahawks Tuesday, Sept. 1, and both sides expect a deal to get done.

Footballguys view: That's bad news for Christine Michael, who the team has been trying to find a way to motivate to no avail. Jackson and Marshawn Lynch are very tight (Lynch texted Jackson to mess with him when C.J. Spiller was drafted in 2010), so there should be no waves. Jackson does good work as a third down back in pass protection and can catch the ball, as well. He's probably no more than a handcuff for Lynch for fantasy purposes.

  Cowboys | Dallas not pursuing Fred Jackson?    Mon Aug 31, 05:00 PM

Free-agent RB Fred Jackson (Bills) probably won't be pursued by the Dallas Cowboys, according to ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer.

Footballguys view: That's.....odd. The Cowboys don't have a back that is really standing out this preseason, and a veteran like Jackson could help.

  Patriots | Pats could pursue Fred Jackson    Mon Aug 31, 01:22 PM

Free-agent RB Fred Jackson (Bills) could receive interest from the New England Patriots as a possible pass-catching running back, in the opinion of Mike Reiss, of ESPNBoston.com.

Footballguys view: That sounds exactly like something the Patriots would do. Jackson can still play at the pro level, and he's a good all-purpose back who could provide any team with quality veteran depth. It's not outlandish to think that Jackson can still start for certain teams in the NFL.

  Cowboys | Dallas not in on Fred Jackson    Mon Aug 31, 11:46 AM

Free-agent RB Fred Jackson (Bills) isn't drawing interest from the Dallas Cowboys, who may be interested in a different running back.

Footballguys view: The report says "for now" and that's the key phrase to focus in on. Jackson can still play, and there should be more than one team interested in adding the veteran back.

  Bills | Fred Jackson released    Mon Aug 31, 10:31 AM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson was released Monday, Aug. 31. He was slated to make $2.35 million this year and wasn't asked to take a pay cut.

Footballguys view: There have been rumblings that Jackson could be off the team earlier this year. Jackson can still play at the NFL level, and teams like Dallas, Arizona or New England could show interest in the veteran back. The Bills could move forward with rookie Karlos Williams as the primary backup behind LeSean McCoy.

  Bills | Several key Bills return to practice    Sat Aug 22, 03:17 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (hamstring) and WRs Sammy Watkins (glute), Robert Woods (hip) and Marcus Easley (knee) all returned to practice Saturday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: The Bills need them on the field for Week 1 more than Preseason Week 2, but it is good to see them back in action. The Bills plan to run the ball a ton, so they'll need Jackson, though not as much as in the past. We see him as an RB4 right now, as long as LeSean McCoy stays healthy. With the mess at quarterback, Watkins sits as a low-end WR2 or a solid WR3. That's almost totally because of his ability though, so if the quarterbacks start being productive, he may end up more so as well. Easley isn't worth rostering, as he is too far down the depth chart.

  Bills | Fred Jackson back at practice    Sat Aug 22, 10:05 AM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (hamstring) is participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: The Bills need all the help they can get at the running back position. Getting Jackson back as their top back (while LeSean McCoy is out) is nothing but a good thing. Jackson should work as McCoy's primary backup when the regular season starts.

  Bills | Fred Jackson focused mentally    Wed Aug 19, 03:53 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (hamstring) is focused on being prepared mentally while he's sidelined with a nagging hamstring injury. 'We have to just get in the playbook and know what to expect when the play is called and know what kind of looks we'll get and just be prepared mentally if we can't do it physically.' Head coach Rex Ryan hopes Jackson will be well enough in time for the Bills' third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Jackson's hamstring injury has been described as severe, so having him ready in a week or so might be a stretch. The team needs whatever help they can get at running back, and Jackson would be their best option with superstar LeSean McCoy down with his own hamstring injury.

  Bills | Fred Jackson has major hamstring injury    Tue Aug 18, 07:57 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (hamstring) is dealing with a major hamstring injury, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan hopes Jackson will be able to return for their third preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Jackson would be the player the team turns to with LeSean McCoy (hamstring) down. However, the aged veteran is dealing with his own--fairly serious--hamstring problem. We'll see if he can get healthy and help the team out as more than a few running backs are banged up in Buffalo.

  Bills | Two Bills RBs out of practice    Mon Aug 17, 04:28 PM

Buffalo Bills RBs Fred Jackson (hamstring) and Anthony Dixon (calf) did not practice Monday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: It seems like everyone outside of LeSean McCoy is dinged up in the Bills backfield. Jackson has barely practiced since the start of training camp, and he's in danger of losing the RB2 job in Buffalo to rookie Karlos Williams.

  Bills | Karlos Williams could be No. 2 RB    Mon Aug 17, 08:18 AM

Buffalo Bills RB Karlos Williams has a legitimate shot to be the backup running back with RB Fred Jackson (hamstring) and RB Bryce Brown (hamstring) banged up. He has run decisively and been explosive with 63 total yards and a touchdown in the first preseason game.

Footballguys view: Williams is a no-nonsense runner, and his determination helps him stand out after contact. We still like Jackson as the RB2 for Buffalo behind LeSean McCoy, but the old veteran needs to get healthy after dealing with this hamstring injury.

  Bills | Fred Jackson out a couple weeks    Fri Aug 7, 12:44 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (hamstring) left practice Friday, Aug. 7, with a hamstring injury that could keep him out a couple of weeks.

Footballguys view: Jackson could be in more danger of not making the team if he misses the rest of the preseason and Karlos Williams continues to impress. Anthony Dixon is also hurt and Bryce Brown is a question mark, so Jackson's status might not be shaky even with this injury, but it's not what we want with Jackson entering his age 34 season.

  Bills | Fred Jackson favorite for No. 2 RB job    Sun Jul 5, 10:11 AM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson is expected to be the leading candidate for the No. 2 running back job entering training camp. Jackson will have to contribute on the field if he wants to stay with the team since he does not play special teams.

Footballguys view: LeSean McCoy will get all of the work that he can handle in Buffalo, but Jackson has a way of hanging around backfields more than his competition expects. He could end up being a superior goal-line and hurry-up offense option, so don't assume Jackson's fantasy value is dead yet. If the Bills do release the underrated heart of the team because of his price tag, a team like the Patriots would be sure to snatch him up.

  Bills | Fred Jackson expects to compete for job    Tue Jun 23, 05:27 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson said he expects to compete for a roster spot during training camp. 'We'll see what happens with me getting cut or not,' Jackson said. 'I'll go out and do whatever I can to make sure that doesn't happen. We've got to compete every year. This year is no different than any other year. I've got to go out and compete for my job.'

Footballguys view: We love Jackson's mindset here. He's taking nothing for granted--just like he has every season as a pro. Jackson will serve as veteran insurance behind McCoy and makes for a nice RB5 to carry for now, but he's got starter's upside if McCoy gets banged up.

  Bills | LeSean McCoy at 300 carries?    Tue Jun 2, 11:10 AM

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is expected to receive 300 carries this season, according to teammate RB Fred Jackson. 'I don't know exactly what my role is going to be, Jackson said. 'They say that they want Shady (McCoy) to get 300-plus carries next year. So that's a guy you're feeding the ball all the time. So I'll be ready when my number is called.'

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. McCoy is going to be the bellcow back on one of the most run-heavy teams in the league. He's had over 300 carries each of the last two seasons, and he's rushed for almost 3,000 yards combined during that time. McCoy can handle this workload, and he'll be the centerpiece of the Bills offense.

  Bills | Fred Jackson may miss final cut?    Tue May 12, 03:10 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson may not make the final roster if the Bills end up keeping only three running backs, according to Mike Rodak of ESPN.com. RB LeSean McCoy is a lock for the final roster, while RBs Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown will also compete for a spot.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine this happening, but in the NFL anything is possible. We would rather keep Jackson--and his $2.7 million cap number--over cheaper options like Dixon or Brown.

  Bills | LeSean McCoy, Fred Jackson to split third downs?    Tue Mar 31, 06:05 PM

Buffalo Bills RBs LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson could split third-down snaps. Head coach Rex Ryan said Jackson wouldn't be in on all of the third-down plays and that Anthony Dixon would also get some playing time.

Footballguys view: We could see that happening in 2015. McCoy is going to have an incredibly large workload as the centerpiece of the Bills offense. It's wise for the team to use Jackson on third downs, and as a player who can give McCoy a breather from time to time.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy was referred to as the team's 'bellcow' by head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan said that McCoy and RB Fred Jackson could see time on third downs.

Footballguys view: He's the centerpiece of the offense, and fantasy will love the size of his workload--provided he can stay healthy. McCoy is a RB1, but consider him a low-end RB1 due to the Bills' poor offensive line.

Buffalo Bills RBs LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson are expected to receive a lot of carries in head coach Rex Ryan's offense. Ryan went as far as to say: 'we're going to run it 50 times if we can on you.'

Footballguys view: That's why they have LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson. The mindset makes a ton of sense, especially when you consider they have Matt Cassel as their starting quarterback.
