Fred Jackson: Week 7 Fantasy Outlook

RotoWireContributor October 16, 2013

Jackson continues to deliver effective fantasy performances in spite of his age and C.J. Spiller's presence. Though he had his quietest game of the year in Week 6 against the Bengals, totaling just 48 yards, Jackson has consistently seen double-digit touches, loads of red-zone carries and plenty of pass-catching opportunities, making him a mighty fine fantasy option in a variety of formats.
Widely expected to take a back seat to he breakout Spiller this year, Jackson has seen only nine fewer carries than his electric running partner, and with 21 catches, he's been a major PPR factor -- largely at Spiller's expense. It's worth noting that he had a quiet week with Thad Lewis under center last week, but it's hard to call that a trend after just one game.
