Fred Jackson had five carries for 15 yards, including an eight-yard touchdown, as well as four catches for 23 yards Saturday against Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact: The touchdown and the catches are what make Jackson a serviceable RB3 and low-end RB2 in PPR leagues. He's still the primary TD threat in the Bills' backfield and a favorite outlet for E.J. Manuel. If you need some RB depth around the eighth round, that's where he's being drafted.

Fred Jackson caught seven passes for 28 yards during Saturday night's game in Pittsburgh. He also had six carries for 27 yards as the Bills' first-team offense played the entire first half.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson can be useful in PPR leagues, and he'll compete with Anthony Dixon for carries near the end zone. In standard leagues though, his eighth-round ADP may be a little too rich for the NFL's oldest running back in a crowded backfield.

Fred Jackson has signed a one-year contract extension with the Bills. A source tells Ian Rapoport that it's for $2.6 million plus $1 mil in incentives. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: At 33, Jackson is the oldest RB in the NFL. His role as the Bills' No. 2 back is prolonging his career, but it limits his fantasy appeal to low-ceiling, TD-dependent depth. Even if C.J. Spiller got hurt, Jackson would still be in a crowded backfield with Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon (who has been getting goal-line reps in camp).

Fred Jackson came up limping and walked to the locker room under his own power during Friday night's practice. Buffalo News beat writer Mark Gaughan tweeted that "it doesn't look too serious." (Source: Mark Gaughan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: FredEx has been one of the Bills' few bright spots over the past few years, but this is a reminder that his 33-year-old body is nearing the end. He's being drafted around the eighth round, but that's too high if you want to get ahead of a player's breakdown — especially one who shares a backfield with C.J. Spiller and Bryce Brown.

Always underrated. Will be used a ton in BUF and is a bargain at his 8th round ADP.

Starting to think Jackson is a vampire as he continues to produce despite his 33 years.

Spiller and Bryce Brown could be a problem for the aging back.

The list of RBs who've had decent seasons at age 33 is a short one.
The Fake Football | Aug 26th
He's old and not the most skilled runner on his own team, but he till keeps truckin along. The Bills will remain run first and right now they aren't giving C.J.Spiller third down work and he really needs to be in on passing downs. It's a fluid situation, but Jackson can be had at value.

It's the final year for Fred Jackson in Buffalo. If the coaching staff likes him then he does find a way to be a solid bye week RB filler.

I thought Jackson was done last year, but the 32-year old veteran continues to play at a high level. He is probably a high RB4 if Spiller stays healthy and plays up to his potential, but that is anything but a certainty right now.

Fred Jackson is CJ Spiller owner's worst nightmare. He continues to play well and vulture touchdowns. If healthy, FJAX will get his touches.

Fred Jackson continues to be a reliable and underrated fantasy option and could sneak back into the top-25 when all is said and done despite his age and presence in a crowded backfield.

The Buffalo Bills have extended the contract of running back Fred Jackson. The 33-year old running back was primed to enter a contract season in 2014, but the team and Jackson agreed to terms on a one-year extension worth $2.6 million. Jackson filled in admirably for injured running back C.J. Spiller at times in 2013, while also effectively operating as the team’s main goal-line back. Jackso...
