Buffalo Bills Running Back Woes: Instant Fantasy Analysis

The Bills backfield had a rough preseason opener.

Fred Jackson left the game early with hand and ankle injuries. It sounds like the ankle issue is likely just a sprain, but the hand injury looks to be pretty serious. Early word is that Jackson will miss the rest of the preseason and is highly questionable for the season opener.

To make matters worse, Marshawn Lynch also hurt his ankle in his limited action. At this point, there’s no news on the severity of the injury.

These injuries may not seem that significant, but they’re going to change some things in both re-draft and dynasty leagues.

CJ Spiller is going to get increased practice team with the first unit and could make a push to pass Jackson on the depth chart. The talented Clemson rookie was already making up ground pretty quickly.

The Fred Jackson injury should also quiet any Marshawn Lynch trade rumors that were floating around. It would be highly unlikely the Bills decide to move him now that their No. 1 running back is on the shelf.

Spiller should be moved up the re-draft boards a little, and dynasty league owners who took him in rookie drafts could see him produce a little sooner than expected as well.
