Fred Jackson (RB, BUF) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Ben Speed Page -

BALLER MOVE: Add immediately in all leagues.

ANALYSIS: I’m shocked that Fred Jackson is still available in nearly 50% of leagues. In a year with such a thin RB class, Jackson should at least be riding the pine in nearly every league. In spite of being C.J. Spiller‘s backup, Jackson has outperformed Buffalo’s starter and forced the Bills into a running-back-by-committee situation early in the season. Jackson has proven he still has gas left in the tank, and though Spiller ran for 103 yards in Week Two, Jackson still had 53 all-purpose yards and was the only one who reached paydirt. Regardless of Spiller’s comeback week against the Panthers, Jackson still saw just four fewer touches. In today’s NFL, Jackson is one awkward tackle away from being the feature back in a dominant Buffalo run game. Even with Spiller leading the way, Jackson has been a viable PPR flex play with his role in the pass game, already hauling in eight balls this year on 11 targets.
