2015 Outlook: Over the Hill (decreased production)

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


Jackson has shown plenty of decline over the past three years, gaining only 3.8, 4.3 and 3.7 yards per rush. But his value in the passing game continues to grow, even at age 33. He hauled in a career-high 66 passes in 2014. Over his last 30 games, Fred has averaged 15.3 touches and 76.8 total yards per. Jackson missed time this spring due to some sort of minor surgery. He'll start the year at age 34 and with dwindling upside in all areas in the game. I don't see him as a threat to McCoy in any area, and I expect Buffalo to work Fred in only when LeSean needs a series off. It's time to leave this pony in the barn on draft day.

Latest Update

Aug-27-15 Bills RB Karlos Williams seen at the team facility Thursday

Buffalo Bills running back Karlos Williams seen at the team facility today. He had been missing after undergoing an undisclosed medical procedure. However, he is expected to be ready for the season opener. He is making a strong push for the RB2 job and there is a decent chance that LeSean McCoy could be out Week 1. If McCoy is out, it will likely be Williams and Fred Jackson shouldering the load.

Fantasy Analysis:

Williams is still an overlooked man by fantasy owners. He's definitely worth a late-round flier. Immediately following the draft one of our NFL Draft analysts singled Williams out as a future star. This is what he said about the fifth-round pick, "Williams has major star potential. At 6-foot-1 and 230 pounds, Williams has a big, powerful frame. He is also surprisingly athletic. He has a rare combination of size, speed and power. Williams also possesses excellent feet and tremendous cutback ability. On top of his capability to make quick, strong cuts and shift momentum, he has the size to fall forward for extra yards at the second level. His issue right now is that he has LeSean McCoy and the ageless Fred Jackson ahead of him on the depth chart. Williams will likely have little value this season but could be a star in the future. He undoubtedly has the talent."
