It looks like the 32-year-old Jackson is starting to wear down. A broken leg forced him to miss six season-ending games in 2011. Two separate knee injuries slowed Jackson throughout 2012, which is why he missed another half dozen games and amassed the second-worst seasonal numbers of his career. With the explosive C.J. Spiller assuming the featured-runner duties in new Bills head coach Doug Marrone’s up-tempo offense, Jackson is expected to slide into a backup role. While he lacks superstar talent, the underrated dual-threat Jackson, when healthy, is still a solid overall player. During his last two starts of 2011, Jackson rushed for a combined 189 yards and two touchdowns on 41 carries (4.6 yards per carry) and hauled in six balls for 45 yards. If you select Spiller, make sure you lock up Jackson later in your draft as an insurance policy. He is a decent spot-starter if Spiller goes down with an injury, but Jackson’s durability is an obvious concern.
