Yes, I don't know how deep your league is but I hope you have waiver priority.

He's going to be out for awhile. At least four weeks according to La Canfora. Worth the pickup, probably, but I wouldn't get too excited.

I personally think this is the end of Fred Jackson as a viable fantasy starter. CJ Spiller looks too good in his absence.

I would still pick him up no doubt. But don't expect 100 yards a game...

To be honest I just dropped him for Alfred Morris. He was my third running back behind Charles and McCoy (12 teamer) and we have really shallow benches. I know it's risky, but CJ Spiller is only going to get better in my opinion and the Bills coaching staff really didn't put an exact timetable on his return. And when he does come back, at best, he and Spiller split carries.

And I wouldn't get so excited about Spiller. He's serviceable, but it's easy to look good when a defense basically invites you to run on them.

Fred has a long time before possible playing time and when he comes back he might find Spiller had success and they share the backfield. If you have room for him and need RB help then hold him. But I would also be less excited.

I would be all kinds of excited. Spiller isn't build like an every down back. I doubt he will be totally healthy by the time FJ comes back. FJ has huge upside and could be a monster late in the year when you really need him.

I'm a FJax owner w/o Spiller handcuff.

I'm holding onto him in a deep bench league, but I can understand if people drop him if your league has shallow benches.

Quote:
The MRI on Fred Jackson's right knee did not provide an "exact timetable for return" Monday, but CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Jackson is expected to miss four weeks in a "best case scenario."
F-Jax sprained his LCL at the very least, and the Bills don't know the full extent of the damage yet. Per La Canfora, the Bills will "monitor" the injury for the next 7-10 days. Look for C.J. Spiller to draw the start in Week 2 against the Chiefs and operate as an every-down back going forward. Spiller got loose for 194 total yards and a touchdown against the Jets in Week 1.

Quote:
http://espn.go.com/fantasy/blog/_/name/bell_stephania/id/8367003/fred-jackson-least-three-weeks-greg-jennings-jeremy-maclin-facing-injuries
This explains the report that the Bills will see how Jackson responds over the next 7 to 10 days. If his knee is improving over that time and showing good stability, the chances of him returning in several weeks are encouraging. If he still has marked pain, swelling and instability, the time frame could be extended. Everyone, including Jackson and the Bills, is in a wait-and-see mode right now.



It's entirely possible and maybe even likely FJax ends up on IR in 2-3 weeks w/ return designation, and you miss out on all the good waiver players.



But in 12 team... no way FJax belongs on waivers at the current moment. There shouldn't even be anyone good on waivers, unless you're picking up McCluster or stashing Mikel LeShoure.

50/50 at best. Might be a J charles / T Jones situation.
