Summary

At 33 years of age, Fred Jackson is definitely getting closer to the end of the line. His production has been defying the age stereotype for a few years now (injury-riddled 2012 the exception) and will likely still be a solid producer again this season. It's the last one on his contract with the Bills, so he has a lot of incentive to put a good year together. The Bills will split carries with he and C.J. Spiller (and new addition Bryce Brown) again, and we see another productive season from him, though likely not like last year when he finished as the 11th back in fantasy. Brown is likely in Buffalo to replace either Jackson or Spiller (or both, with Jackson being more likely since he is the elder of the two and has less upside. Jackson is good fantasy depth --he plays hard and will put consistent yards on the board but the risk of an age-related drop-off as well as injury and other backs stealing carries hurts his overall potential for fantasy owners, but the volume of the Bills running game can sustain his bench value.
