  Bills | Robert Woods limited during practice    Wed Nov 26, 06:41 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Footballguys view: Woods had a big game on Monday night against the Jets in Week 12. The team won't rush him onto the practice field as he deals with what most are calling a minor ankle injury.

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) is officially listed as questionable for the team's Week 12 game Monday, Nov. 24, but head coach Doug Marrone said he is planning on Jackson playing.

Footballguys view: Jackson is still likely to split the backfield three ways with Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon, making none a great play tomorrow.

  Bills | Fred Jackson practices    Sat Nov 22, 06:56 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) practiced in an undisclosed capacity Saturday, Nov. 22.

Footballguys view: We're still not quite sold on him this week and have him as an low-end RB2/RB3 with some upside. Not knowing how much and in what way he practiced, we just don't trust him to be effective or get a lot of carries.

  Bills | Fred Jackson took advantage of rest    Sat Nov 22, 10:18 AM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) took advantage of the rest he got due to the blizzard, and it helped as he recovered from a groin injury. Jackson said he did not suffer a setback in practice Friday. "Obviously you want to rest it, and with these two days off I was able to do that. But you want to be in the room with the trainers and go through some treatments and rehab and things like that and not being able to do that is something that could be a setback, but taking advantage of not doing anything is something that could help too. It felt good getting out there today. Hopefully I can continue to progress well and play well on Monday."

Footballguys view: We're not sold on the delay--and the lack of practice--being a positive for the Bills, unless we're talking about Fred Jackson who definitely benefited. We're not "all in" on the running back, or the Bills offense, even against the thoroughly underwhelming Jets, so we have him as an middling RB2/RB3 this week, though he has more upside. The Bills might ease him back in as well, so that limits his upside.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins, Chris Hogan practice    Thu Nov 20, 04:42 PM

Buffalo Bills WRs Sammy Watkins (groin) and Chris Hogan (hip) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 20. The Bills did not actually practice Thursday, so their status is an estimation.

Footballguys view: Watkins is the guy to have here and we see him as a low-end WR2. While the Bills inability to practice and the unknown around the date and location make things a little murky, we still feel confident Watkins will perform.

  Bills | Limited practice for Fred Jackson    Thu Nov 20, 04:39 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) was limited for the second straight day in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. The Bills did not actually practice Thursday, so Orton's status is an estimation.

Footballguys view: We don't know what shape he's really in since the Bills aren't practicing. At best we have him as an RB3, but he may not be even that effective. We just don't know.

  Bills | Kyle Orton limited again    Thu Nov 20, 04:36 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Kyle Orton (toe) was limited for the second straight day in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. The Bills did not actually practice Thursday, so Orton's status is an estimation.

Footballguys view: The Jets are a tempting target for any fantasy quarterback, and we have him as a QB2. We don't know when the game will be played or where, much less in what conditions and the Bills aren't practicing so they will come into the game cold (pun not intended). So there is an element of the unknown to this, but if you're stuck he's worth the risk.

  Bills | Fred Jackson thinks Bills at disadvantage    Thu Nov 20, 01:44 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson said he believes the team is at a disadvantage for their Week 12 game against the New York Jets because the snow in the Buffalo area has prevented the team from practicing. Jackson said the players are using their iPads to study the game plan for Week 12.

Footballguys view: He's not wrong. While the Bills and Jets head coach Rex Ryan are saying the Bills will still be prepared, you have to wonder what not being able to practice for a huge chunk of the week will play out. Jackson's groin injury is still a concern, an we've got him as just an RB3 this week. Considering that the game could be moved to another night and Jackson's status is still iffy, it's best to avoid this whole mess.

  Bills | Anthony Dixon, Bryce Brown shared work    Mon Nov 17, 02:46 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon played 33 offensive snaps in the team's Week 11 game, while RB Bryce Brown received 28 offensive snaps.

Footballguys view: Those numbers will change this week. Fred Jackson will return to the lineup after missing the Week 11 game because it was on Thursday night. The extra bit of rest could help Jackson look better than he did in Week 10.

  Bills | Staying with Kyle Orton    Mon Nov 17, 02:24 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Kyle Orton will continue to be the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Doug Marrone.

Footballguys view: Of course they're staying with Orton. He's largely uninspiring, but their next option is to turn things over to E.J. Manuel again.

  Bills | Fred Jackson expected to go Week 12    Mon Nov 17, 10:17 AM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) would have played in Week 11 if the game weren't on Thursday Night Football. Jackson expects to play in Week 12.

Footballguys view: The short week screwed the chances of Jackson playing in Week 11. The extra rest could do him some good for Week 12. We like him as his usual RB2 spot.

  Bills | Fred Jackson suffered setback    Fri Nov 14, 05:38 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) said he aggravated his groin injury during practice Tuesday, Nov. 11, which is why he did not play in Week 11. He said he hopes the extra time off will allow him to be ready to play in Week 12.

Footballguys view: It sounds like Jackson was fine coming out of the game on Sunday, but the short week of practice might have betrayed him, as the lack of early week rest left his groin prone to injury in a practice on a day when the team would normally be resting. Don't drop him, as Bryce Brown reminded us of the potential PPR value for RBs in the Bills offense.

  Bills | Chris Hogan the No. 2 wideout    Fri Nov 14, 12:50 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Chris Hogan now has caught at least five passes in four of the team's last five games, and he has surpassed WRs Robert Woods and Mike Williams as the second option behind WR Sammy Watkins in the team's short passing game. Watkins was mostly a non-factor in Week 11 against Miami Dolphins CB Brent Grimes.

Footballguys view: Hogan has some marginal PPR value, and you could do worse than playing him as your flex against the Jets in Week 12, but as Watkins gets healthier, Hogan's target share should shrink.

  Bills | Anthony Dixon leads backfield    Thu Nov 13, 11:43 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon carried the ball a team-high 10 times in the team's Week 11 game Thursday, Nov 13. He finished with 35 yards rushing and also caught two passes for 13 yards.

Footballguys view: Dixon did not get any goal line opportunities, as the Bills offense stalled out in the red zone for the second straight week. Fred Jackson should be back next week, and the matchup against the Jets isn't good for a power back like Dixon anyway. He can probably be dropped in all but the deepest leagues.

  Bills | Fred Jackson not expected to play    Thu Nov 13, 12:26 PM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) likely will not play in Week 11, because he did not have enough time to recover from the team's Week 10 game, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Jackson will be better for sitting another week, and it leaves Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon splitting carries. Brown looked good last week, and while he would have been an RB4 with Jackson in the game, we might bump him up to an RB3 with upside if he's not. Dixon will still get a chunk of the carries, making him a decent RB4.

  Bills | Fred Jackson may sit out    Thu Nov 13, 09:46 AM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) could sit out the Week 11 game Thursday, Nov. 13, against the Miami Dolphins due to the short week.

Footballguys view: Okay, this is a different signal from what we've been getting earlier. According to the report, his status is much more questionable than it was last week. Fantasy owners had better have a backup plan.

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (groin) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 11.

Footballguys view: It's a short week for the Bills as they play the Dolphins on Thursday night. Watkins should be good (enough) to go, and we see him as a low-end WR2 with upside in Week 11.

Footballguys view: The short week isn't going to do Jackson any favors. He returned in Week 10, but he didn't produce the way fantasy owners wanted. As he gets healthier, we should see Jackson start looking like his normal self.
