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

Fred Jackson is CJ Spiller owner's worst nightmare. He continues to play well and vulture touchdowns. If healthy, FJAX will get his touches.
These darn New Orleans RB's are going to continue to drive fantasy owners up-the-wall. Don't touch them unless the value is great. They will once again be splitting time on any given Sunday.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
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.
Thomas is the only running back now in New Orleans that will see multiple targets per game and he will make good use of them.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Starting to think Jackson is a vampire as he continues to produce despite his 33 years.
Better PPR option as he'll operate almost exclusively as the passing down back.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Spiller and Bryce Brown could be a problem for the aging back.
Role has taken a hit and is in full blown RBBC.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
The list of RBs who've had decent seasons at age 33 is a short one.
May well be the Saints' best RB, but he's destined to be a committee member.
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
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.
Pierre Thomas saw 77 receptions last season and should approach that number again with Darren Sproles out of town. Some believe Mark Ingram will finally get feature back looks but Thomas will remain a fantasy asset regardless of how Ingram performs this season due to Thomasí superior hands out of the backfield.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
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.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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.
On the positive side, he had 147 rushes for 549 yards and three touchdowns to go along with 77 receptions for 513 yards and three touchdowns. The negative is he turns 30-years old in December and is in the last year of his contract. The Saints pass the ball a ton, Thomas will have RB3 value, even if he does not lead the team in carries.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
 
Pierre Thomas has never had more than 150 Rushing Attempts in a Season, he has only once accumulated over 700 Rushing Yards and will not light up the scoreboard with TDís for fantasy owners. With Darren Sproles out of town, there will be a level of consistency associated with his 77 Receptions from last season. Thomasí numbers are balanced between rushing and receiving yards, but he is a much better option in PPR Leagues due to the uptempo NOLA Offense and the receptions that he grabs as benefactor to that aerial assault.
