Anthony Dixon, RB, Bills

There is no 2014 profile for this player yet.
Bills running back Fred Jackson didn't play in Week 11, but that was a function of a cramped schedule more than anything else. Head coach Doug Marrone said after the loss to Miami that the four days in between Buffalo's two most recent games didn't give Jackson enough time to recover following his Week 10 return from a fairly serious groin injury.
However, time is on Jackson's side this week. When the Bills kick off against the Jets on Monday night from Detroit, Jackson will have had 15 days to get his health in order. Marrone said Saturday that he expects Jackson to be on the field Monday, and Jackson said as much about himself earlier this week.
The last time Jackson, Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown played in a game, Buffalo unleashed a full-blown committee as those three played 37, 26 and 37 percent of the offensive snaps respectively in Week 10 versus Kansas City. I don't think the playing time will be split quite as equally against the Jets. With adequate time to heal, Jackson should lead this backfield against a strong run defense. He is a decent flex while Brown is a worthy PPR replacement after catching 13 passes over the past two weeks.
