Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs NE (10 / 26 / 1 rush, 6 / 4 / 17 / 0 rec)

Despite showing no ill effects of the ankle injury that led to his questionable tag all week, Fred Jackson and the entire rushing attack struggled to get anything going on Sunday. Jackson's longest run went eight yards and if nothing else showed no issues with his ankle. The flow of the play went right, but Jackson used a quick jump cut against the current at the line of scrimmage and without hitch was up field on the eight-yard gain. His lone saving grace, Jackson did find the end zone on a one-yard dive that was nothing more than a straight power run right up center Eric Wood's back. Game flow undoubtedly affected opportunity as the Bills chased a deficit all afternoon, but when Jackson was running the ball there was absolutely no space with which to work. Jackson also struggled to get much going in the passing game either, as his four catches only amassed 17 yards. His long was vintage Fred Jackson as he caught the ball well short of the sticks and willed his way to the first down. Two Patriots converged and were on Jackson immediately, but he powered through the initial hit and dragged both four more yards for a first down.

2014 Week 7 vs MIN (3 / 12 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 16 / 0 rec)

Fred Jackson's day was short-lived on Sunday as he suffered an apparent groin injury on the team's third drive of the game. Running right, Jackson tried to plant and cut at the line but went down in a heap immediately after planting. It didn't look menacing initially, but the back immediately clutched at his groin and could only get off the field help and the most ginger of walks to the sideline. It didn't take long for the training staff to load Jackson on to the cart nor for everyone watching to see the concern on Jackson's face, as he was visibly upset before disappearing into the locker room. Initial reports have it anywhere from a two-week to four-week recovery, but more will be revealed once Jackson gets his MRI on Monday.

Bills | Fred Jackson does not practice (Thu Oct 23, 04:07 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Our View: Jackson could return in Week 10 after the Bills Week 9 bye. If you have to put a Buffalo running back in the mix, then try Anthony Dixon as an RB3. The Jets defense hasn't been as good against the run as they were early on so Dixon could have some success.

Bills | Fred Jackson hopes for quick return (Mon Oct 20, 01:32 PM) - Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) said he hopes to be able to return from his injury quicker than expected four-week time frame.

Our View: Without Jackson, we're going to see some form of combination between Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown. Fantasy owners should wait and see how this split develops while Jackson is out. Brown is more physically talented than Dixon, but it's Dixon who is more decisive as a runner.
