2013 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Aug-16-2013 by Matt De Lima

Now 32 years old, Fred Jackson has finished each of the last two seasons with dehabilitating leg injuries and missed 12 games in total. Although he was formerly ahead of RB C.J. Spiller on the depth chart at the start of each of the last two years, that is no longer the case. Jackson will likely take on a change-of-pace role and at best, will poach a few short-yardage scores away from the more fleet-footed Spiller. Jackson's injury risks and reduced offensive responsibilities should keep him healthy which would be useful to fantasy owners for the right value. Unfortunately, he should rarely, if ever, crack your starting lineup unless Spiller goes down with injury.

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.

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.
