 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.  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Thomas was also pretty useless in the Saints' backfield a year ago. May want to just avoid any Saints RB not named Darren Sproles.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.  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Pierre is a great RB on the wrong offense. Thomas has 80 Yards/1 TD with a handful of receptions written all over him. Though those numbers are hard to come by when you have to compete with Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles itching for PT every single snap.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.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
 Bills will run a ton so you'd imagine F-Jax has a little value here.  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Solid flex appeal with bye-week filler floor; role depends on how impressive a finally healthy Ingram looksWill take a back seat to the more talented Spiller
