Bills | Anthony Dixon, Bryce Brown shared work

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 11:46:56 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon played 33 offensive snaps in the team's Week 11 game, while RB Bryce Brown received 28 offensive snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Dixon rushed for 35 yards in the game, while Brown rushed for 14 yards, but he also caught seven passes for 57 yards. Fred Jackson is expected to return in Week 12 and may receive a majority of the work. Jackson probably will have the most fantasy value in Week 12.

Bills | Anthony Dixon leads backfield

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 20:43:13 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon carried the ball a team-high 10 times in the team's Week 11 game Thursday, Nov 13. He finished with 35 yards rushing and also caught two passes for 13 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Dixon had four more carries than Bryce Brown, but Brown had 10 targets in the passing game compared to just two for Dixon. Neither back was effective on the ground Thursday, and when Fred Jackson returns, Dixon seems more likely to lose value given Brown's ability to contribute in the passing game.

Bills | Anthony Dixon likely the guy

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 07:26:17 -0700

The Buffalo Bills love RB Anthony Dixon, and he's likely to lead the way at running back over RB Bryce Brown.

Fantasy Tip: Dixon ($3,600; 7.2% of your cap) is a great flex option on FantasyScore that will allow you to load up on other positions. Brown ($3,400; 6.8%) isn't worth using this weekend without a concrete role.

Bills | Anthony Dixon in line to start

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 06:21:03 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon is likely to start against the New York Jets in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Check Dixon's price on FantasyScore Tuesday, Oct. 21, and keep him in mind as a flex option. Bryce Brown should also be involved in the offense, but he'd need to be involved in at least a 50-50 split to warrant consideration.

Bills | Anthony Dixon pressed into duty

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 14:54:40 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon was pressed into duty in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings due to injuries to RBs Fred Jackson (groin) and C.J. Spiller (collarbone). Dixon finishes with 13 carries for 51 yards, and he added three receptions for 15 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller has a serious injury, and will likely be out multiple weeks. Jackson's status is uncertain, and he will have an MRI Monday to determine the severity of his injury. Dixon could be the featured back for a while, and as such he could be a steal in FantasyScore if his salary remains reasonable.
