Bills | Fred Jackson capable of splitting workload

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson was the team's best offensive weapon in their Week 1 loss to the New England Patriots, and he still feels that he's physically capable of being productive, even with RB C.J. Spiller expected to be the featured back. "I still feel like I can play. I've said it all along, I wouldn't be in there if I didn't feel like I can still compete and play at this level. Yesterday was just a good way to hit the ground running and show I can still compete," Jackson said. Spiller didn't seem right against the Pats, though, and Jackson took advantage of his opportunity. With the no-huddle offense being used, it will be a lot to ask of Spiller to stay in over a full drive.

Fantasy Tip: OK, so, F-Jax proved a point in Week 1: that he hasn't disappeared and can still be a very productive fantasy back in this offense alongside Spiller. Spiller won't always take a back seat to Jackson, though, but he might not have an overwhelmingly large workload over Jackson, like some may have guessed.
