2014 Outlook: Fantasy Handcuff

Last updated on Jul-06-2014 by Brian Murphy

Jackson played a full slate of games last year after a couple of injury-shortened seasons, and he responded by gaining more than 1,200 yards from scrimmage to go along with 10 touchdowns. However, he is clearly Buffalo's No. 2 running back entering 2014 and will see his role reduced as the Bills try to get Spiller involved more often. Given Spiller's rather slender build and history of getting dinged up, Jackson makes for a wise mid-round selection as an insurance policy. He caught a career-high 47 passes and averaged 4.3 yards per rush in his age-32 season, so he's definitely got some gas left in the tank. Jackson said he wants to play a few more seasons in the NFL, but they will likely come with some other team as he is in a contract year.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
12.02 FFToolbox - Rob Warner - The 32 year old Jackson has missed 12 games over the past 2 seasons. He's topped 30 catches in each of the past five seasons and remains a solid RB3/4 despite playing behind CJ Spiller as the Bills lack playmakers and will need to keep F-Jax involved in the gameplan.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
11.12 KFFSC - Wow, I'm feeling better about drafting Green-Ellis and missing on my Ray Rice handcuff. Fred Jackson at the end of the 11th round is an awesome value. I don't expect that to happen again. I agree with the consensus that CJ Spiller is going to have a great year and is the Buffalo RB to have on your team if you can only pick one. But you can pick more than one, and the Spiller owner's decision to pass on Jackson is my gain. He's a great bye week starter who will see some goal line work and some touches as a change of pace back. Even if Spiller stays healthy (and I never want to see a player get hurt) Jackson is a really solid addition to my team as a 4th RB.

11.12 Bruno Boys - My draft value sense kicked in here. Fred Jackson is going in the early 8th in most PPR leagues and for good reason. He?s already proven he can be an elite PPR commodity and he?s backing up a smallish running back that will be seeing his first truly heavy workload. I don?t buy into the thinking that Fred Jackson will be relegated to true backup duties. Jackson has been a productive complementary back his entire career and he?s perfectly suited for keeping Spiller fresh. Jackson finished RB34 last year in PPR formats despite playing only 10 games, all of them second fiddle to Spiller. I?d be willing to bet that is his floor which makes him an RB3 in this format. I now have a running back corps deeper than most two team pairs which is never a bad thing.
