Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/25/14 1:00am ET
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) returned to action Monday, Nov. 24 following his Week 11 injury absence and finished with 45 total yards and a touchdown on 13 touches in the Bills' 38-3 rout of the New York Jets in Detroit.
Huddle Up: Jackson, who had missed two of the Bills' last three games, carried the ball 10 times for 32 yards and a score to finish second to Anthony Dixon (12-54-1) on the team in rushing and added thee receptions for 13 yards. He didn't appear to suffer any health setbacks and should be in line for more touches in the coming weeks.
Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/22/14 9:33pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) is officially listed as questionable for the team's Week 12 game Monday, Nov. 24, but head coach Doug Marrone said he is planning on Jackson playing.
Huddle Up: Jackson is still less less than 100 percent, going up against a tough rush defense and playing on Monday night. He's a risky flex option this week for fantasy owners with Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon also in the mix for touches.
Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/20/14 3:55pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson said he believes the team is at a disadvantage for its Week 12 game against the New York Jets because the snow in the Buffalo area has prevented the team from practicing. Jackson said the players are using their iPads to study the game plan for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Yeah, we'd say being unable to practice is certainly a setback. The new date -- likely Monday -- and location for the contest should be announced soon with Ralph Wilson Stadium and the Buffalo area blanketed by ongoing snowfall.
Kyle Orton - QBPosted 11/17/14 3:12pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Kyle Orton will continue to be the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Huddle Up: Orton has struggled the last two weeks but overall he's played better than E.J. Manuel. He's nothing more than a QB2n for fantasy purposes.
Chris Hogan - WRPosted 11/14/14 12:39am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Chris Hogan hit career highs with 7 receptions and 74 yards Thursday, Nov. 13 in a 22-9 loss to the host Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Hogan has become a fantasy factor, particularly in PPR leagues as he's now had 6 or more targets and 5 or more catches in four of the Bills' last 5 games. He's also caught a pair of TDs in that span, but of course no Buffalo player was able to find the end zone Thursday night.
Anthony Dixon - RBPosted 11/14/14 9:49am ET
Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon carried the ball a team-high 10 times in the team's Week 11 game Thursday, Nov 13. He finished with 35 yards rushing and also caught two passes for 13 yards.
Huddle Up: Dixon led the team in carries but Bryce Brown had the better fantasy night, catching seven balls for 57 yards. Brown has taken over C.J. Spiller's role in Buffalo's offense. When Fred Jackson returns from his groin injury, Dixon will be the third back on the depth chart.
Kyle Orton - QBPosted 11/14/14 11:52am ET
Buffalo Bills QB Kyle Orton (toe) suffered a minor toe injury Thursday, Nov. 13, in Week 11. Head coach Doug Marrone said he isn't considering making the switch to QB EJ Manuel, based on Orton's performance or health.
Huddle Up: Orton has struggled to get the ball down the field in consecutive games but overall he's played better than Manuel and he has Buffalo fighting for a Wild Card spot. Expect the Bills to stick with Orton. He remains a QB2 for fantasy purposes.
Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/13/14 12:37pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) could sit out the Week 11 game Thursday, Nov. 13, against the Miami Dolphins due to the short week. His status is much more questionable than it was last week.
Huddle Up: Maybe pushing his return and playing this past Sunday wasn't the best idea for Jackson who had seven touches for 49 yards. If you have him slotted into your starting lineup, though, you're obviously going to need to monitor pre-game reports.
Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/13/14 8:12pm ET
The Buffalo Bills have declared RB Fred Jackson (groin), OT Cyrus Kouandjio, DL Jarius Wynn, WR Marquise Goodwin, RB Phillip Tanner, LB Randell Johnson and CB Ron Brooks inactive for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Bryce Brown is slated to start tonight for the visitors, while Anthony "Boobie" Dixon and Phillip Tanner will get mixed in against the Dolphins.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 11/11/14 1:09am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (groin) practiced in full Monday, Nov. 10. Watkins played 93 percent of the offensive snaps in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Watkins saw quite a bit of PT Sunday, but it didn't translate into much fantasy success as he caught only 4 of his team-high 10 targets for 27 yards -- matching his second-worst single-game yardage total of the season.
Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/11/14 1:09am ET
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) was limited in practice Monday, Nov. 10. Jackson played only 27 offensive snaps in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs but is confident that he'll be ready to play against the Miami Dolphins in Week 11 Thursday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: Jackson had only three rushing attempts and four receptions for 49 total yards, and look for that total to increase against a tough Miami D Thursday night.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 11/11/14 5:49pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (groin) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, Nov. 11.
Huddle Up: The rookie wideout will be good to go Thursday night in Miami after two full days of practice participation.
Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/11/14 11:34pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) was limited in practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Nov. 11.
Huddle Up: Jackson should definitely play Thursday night -- as he did in Week 10 -- and he may remain on a pitch count given the short week.
Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/10/14 9:52am ET
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) had just three carries for 10 yards in the team's Week 10 game Sunday, Nov. 9.
Huddle Up: No real surprise here as it was a surprise that Jackson was even active Sunday. It sounds like he made it through the game OK, though, and his workload will increase in the coming weeks.
Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/7/14 12:57pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson's (groin) availability for Week 10 hasn't been determined yet, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Huddle Up: If they don't know by now, that's not a good sign for Jackson or his fantasy owners. Expect to be treated to Boobie Dixon and maybe a smattering of Bryce Brown this week.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 11/7/14 4:17pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is questionable for Week 10.
Huddle Up: This is headed toward a Sunday morning game-time decision, but it's not looking promising for Watkins who hasn't been able to do anything in practice since the injury cropped up Wednesday. Get another WR option ready now.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 11/7/14 7:50pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (groin) said he is not sure if he will be able to play in Week 10 and will allow the coaches to decide. 'That's the coach's decision about whether I should play. It's a long season so I'm really clueless right now. I don't know,' Watkins said. 'They didn't update me or really tell me what's going on.'
Huddle Up: Watkins looks extremely questionable for Sunday. He'll likely be a gametime decision. If he can't go, Robert Woods will see an increase in targets against the Chiefs.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 11/6/14 12:21am ET
Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (groin) is expected to be ready to play in the Week 10 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to a person familiar with the situation. Watkins, who was hurt in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5, had an MRI. Watkins was not walking with any noticeable signs of the injury in the locker room after practice.
Huddle Up: Watkins has been producing more with Kyle Orton under center. He's a must-start this week against a tough Chiefs defense.
Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/6/14 12:21am ET
Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Fred Jackson's (groin) status for Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs is still uncertain, although he was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Nov. 5. 'It went OK today,' Jackson said. 'It was a good action, first time I've done anything like that at practice. We'll see how it goes, doctors are still being doctors and being cautious so I've got to see how things progress the rest of the week.'
Huddle Up: Jackson could still be a week away from playing but it's a positive sign that he's practicing. He'll be a gametime decision this week but if Jackson plays, owners should get him in their lineups.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 11/6/14 2:35pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (groin) was not present during the media-access portion of practice Thursday, Nov. 6.
Huddle Up: Troubling news after the injury cropped up Wednesday. If the rookie isn't able to come back and practice Friday, then it'll be time for some real concern.
Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/6/14 2:57pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) is not ready to play even though he has participated in two practices this week, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Huddle Up: It was definitely good to see Jackson get back on the practice field this week, but a Week 10 return has always been a longshot. Week 11, meanwhile, will present a another challenge as there will be a quick turnaround for Thursday night's game in Miami.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 11/5/14 4:10pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins suffered a groin injury during practice Wednesday, Nov. 5, and was not able to finish. He is listed as a limited participant. Watkins will undergo a precautionary MRI, but the team does not believe the injury to be serious, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Yikes -- not good news at all for Watkins owners with an out-of-the-blue injury cropping up midweek. Watkins had really been coming on with 12 catches for 279 yards and 3 scores in his last two games before the Week 9 bye, but now it's going to week spent monitoring practice reports for his fantasy owners.
Robert Woods - WRPosted 11/5/14 6:34pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods (back) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5.
Huddle Up: Woods could be in line for an increase in targets Sunday if Sammy Watkins' Wednesday groin injury turns out to be something serious.
Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/5/14 6:34pm ET
Updating previous report, Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 5.
Huddle Up: Good to see Jackson, who hasn't played since Week 7, back on the practice field but it's definitely too early to tell if he'll be able to suit up Sunday against the Chiefs. Stay tuned ...
Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/4/14 7:37pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) hopes to be cleared to practice Wednesday, Nov. 5. Jackson worked out with team trainers Monday but has still not been cleared by team doctors.
Huddle Up: All indications are that Jackson has made good progress so see if he gets the nod to practice this week.
Fred Jackson - RBPosted 11/3/14 10:56pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) worked on some movement drills with team trainers Monday, Nov. 3. Jackson said he thought the drills went well and he could practice this week if he is cleared by doctors.
Huddle Up: Jackson was injured in Week 7 and had the bye last week to give him extra recovery time. See what he can do in practice later this week.
Anthony Dixon - RBPosted 10/22/14 4:05pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon is working with the starters in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. RB Bryce Brown is working with the second-string offense.
Huddle Up: It's sounding like Dixon is headed toward a start Sunday for the Fred Jackson- and C.J. Spiller-less Bills, but do expect Bryce Brown to get a cut of the work as well.
C.J. Spiller - RBPosted 10/21/14 2:47pm ET
The Buffalo Bills placed RB C.J. Spiller (collarbone) on short-term Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Spiller's season may not technically be over, but for the majority of fantasy purposes it is as he wouldn't be able to play until Week 17 at the earliest, provided all goes well with his recovery.
Phillip Tanner - RBPosted 10/21/14 2:47pm ET
The Buffalo Bills are signing free-agent RB Phillip Tanner (Cowboys) on Tuesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Tanner, whose last rushing attempt came almost a year ago (Oct. 27), is simply added depth insurance behind Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown.
Anthony Dixon - RBPosted 10/20/14 10:44am ET
Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon is likely to start against the New York Jets in Week 8.
Huddle Up: The Bills lost both Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller to injuries on Sunday, Spiller for the season and Jackson for at least a couple weeks. Dixon was the only other back on the active roster, and he'll get the nod with Bryce Brown likely his backup.
