Fred Jackson Ranks Highly as Underrated Fantasy Running Back
Even with the NFL lockout in full effect, it’s not too early to start planning for your fantasy football league for the season. According to Derek Lofland of fantasyfootballmaniaxs.com, you may want to give Bill’s own Fred Jackson a spot on your roster.
Jackson clocked in at number seven on Lofland’s list of the top ten underrated fanstasy football players. He is quick to note that Jackson should benefit from being the exclusive workhorse in the Bill’s backfield, with C.J. Spiller being used as a reciever or a third-down back. According to Lofland, Jackson’s fantasy value was hurt last year by Marshawn Lynch’s presence as trade bait from the coaching staff. As for a place on your fantasy team, Lofland describes Jackson as a sold number two running back. If you want to cheer on Bills and your fantasy team at the same time, Jacksons looks to be a smart pick up.
