|6-1, 215||Born: 2-20-1981||College: Coe||Drafted: ---|
News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 23): Jackson loses waiver wire buzz if Marshawn Lynch doesn't have to have hernia surgery, but if Lynch is out through December, Jackson is a high-value handcuff to Thomas Rawls.
Week 12: vs Pittsburgh Steelers
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Marshawn Lynch needs a few weeks to get his sore groin healed, so Thomas Rawls will continue to blaze his trail across the NFL Thanksgiving weekend - Rawls has amassed 101/604/2 rushing and 6/54/1 receiving as a part-time starter this year. Last week he blasted San Francisco/Santa Clara for 30/209/1 rushing and 3/46/1 receiving, so he comes into this one hot. The Steelers are ranked fifth in the NFL averaging 93.0 yards rushing allowed per game, with just three rushing scores given out this year (second-least in the NFL). They have been averaging just 11 fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs per game over the past four weeks (three games) which is second-least in the NFL - last time out, Cleveland had 14/15/0 rushing to the 'credit' at Pittsburgh. This is a tough matchup for Rawls.

Fred Jackson had a season high in touches with six in Week 11. He had just four carries for 11 yards but did add two catches for 11 yards. He was largely overshadowed by rookie Thomas Rawls with Marshawn Lynch a surprise inactive Sunday.
2015 Week 8 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Fred Jackson continues to be a non-factor in this offense as he had just one target, which he converted for a 9-yard gain. With a healthy Marshawn Lynch and rookie Thomas Rawls in the mix, Jackson will not be an impact player in fantasy this year barring an injury.
2015 Week 7 vs SF (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 33 / 0 rec)
Veteran running back Fred Jackson only received one carry in this game but did add four catches for 33 yards. His long play of the day was an 18-yard reception off of a short pass right from Russell Wilson in the fourth quarter. The drive would end in a 46-yard field goal for kicker Steven Hauschka.
2015 Week 6 vs CAR (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)
The veteran Fred Jackson has not yet eclipsed five touches in a single game this season even while Marshawn Lynch was out with an injury. In Week 6 he was not given a carry but did have two catches for seven yards on two targets.
2015 Week 5 vs CIN (2 / 5 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Veteran running back Fred Jackson had just 5 touches in this game including three receptions on three targets in the passing game for 34 total yards. Battling though a high-ankle sprain it was a surprise to see Jackson suit up for this game.
2015 Week 4 vs DET (3 / 21 / 0 rush, 4 / 2 / 33 / 0 rec)
Seeing increased snaps with Marshawn Lynch nursing a hamstring injury against the Detroit Lions Fred Jackson now has injury troubles of his own leaving with an apparent ankle injury in this game. He made some plays for the Seahawks in this game who was having trouble getting anything going on offense including a 26-yard catch in the first quarter. Though only touching the ball 5 times in this game Jackson collected 2 receptions on 4 targets along with 54 total yards.
2015 Week 3 vs CHI (2 / 13 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)
The veteran running back was not a factor in this game, even with Marshawn Lynch leaving with an injury. He was given just two carries on which he gained 13 yards and added two catches for 9 yards. His catch in the 4th quarter was on a critical 3rd down play as Russell Wilson threw him a screen pass under extreme pressure in the pocket.
2015 Week 2 vs GB (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 16 / 1 rec)
The veteran running back had zero carries in this game but did finish with 2 receptions for 16 yards and a touchdown. His touchdown reception was in the red zone on the first drive of the second half where Wilson hit him out of the shotgun with a short pass off a post route through the middle of the field. Jackson later loses a fumble on a short pass that is punched out from behind. This effectively ended comeback hopes and the game for the Seahawks.
2015 Week 1 vs STL (3 / 13 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
The newly acquired veteran running back from the Buffalo Bills was not much of a factor in this game. He took his first carry from the shotgun for a short gain. His best play of the night came with an empty backfield where Jackson was split out wide for a nice 16-yard catch and first down. He did pick up a crucial short yardage first down on 3rd and 1 with 49 seconds left in first half.
