Even in a timeshare, Fred will have value. In fact, he will probably thrive in a timeshare. And against the Patriots, the Bills will need all of their most talented guys on the field.
Since Stewart is still not ready, it appears Tolbert will be in line for some additional snaps. Against the Seahawks it's not ideal, but he'll take it.

The job is now C.J. Spiller's in Buffalo, but there's room for Jackson to gank some short-yardage TDs every now and then.

F-Jax who was once on top of the Fantasy Football RB world, is now on the outside looking in as he is now outside the Top 40. This offense is supposed to go to C.J. Spiller often, but Fred is the captain of this team and wants to take this team to the Playoffs. While that definitely will not happen, Jackson still has to prove he has a lot left in the tank so he can get traded, or earn a big pay day.
Tolbert is a special player who is inconsistent. Not his fault, but the Panthers have so much talent at the RB position, on top of Cam Newton stealing the Goal Line carries. Tolbert has nice upside, but he is best left on the Waiver Wire unless there is an injury. Jonathan Stewart and D-Will get their attempts before Tolbert.

Bills will run a ton so you'd imagine F-Jax has a little value here.

Will take a back seat to the more talented Spiller
