Fred Jackson is back at it again and that's not a good thing for Fantasy Football owners who own his rights.
Just when it looks like FredEx is back to his RB1 ways, he finds a way to get injured.
The former Coe College runner had 115 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns for the Bills and Fantasy owners on Sunday against the Patriots. But, Jackson left the game in the fourth quarter with a concussion, ruling him out for tonight's game against the Dolphins -- and maybe longer.
Joe Flacco rewarded patient owners on Sunday with 341 passing yards, throwing three touchdowns and running for another score to lead Fantasy quarterbacks in scoring in Week 11.And Calvin Johnson broke out of his slump, catching 12 passes for 207 yards and a touchdowns.
Players you might want to pick up: QB Nick Foles, Philadelphia; RBMarcel Reece, Oakland; RB Beanie Wells, Arizona; WRDanario Alexander, San Diego
Three things to watch during tonight's Bills-Dolphins game:
Reggie Bush: Bush was supposed to bust out after a bye week in Week 10 against the Titans, who have allowed the fourth-most Fantasy points to opposing runners. But, Bush and the 'Phins fell on their faces. Bush had 27 yards and a fumble and was benched for "the first time" in his career. The Bills have allowed the most Fantasy points to opposing runners this season, so Bush should get his legs back under him.
Stevie Johnson: The temperamental, oft-injured wide receiver had 67 yards against the Patriots last week, but was over-thrown three times in the end zone by quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Dolphins have given up the fifth-most yards and eighth-most Fantasy points to opposing wide outs this season.
Scott Chandler: The former Hawkeye has five touchdowns this season, three of which have come in games against the Patriots. His score last week was the first time he had reached the end zone since the two teams met in Week 4. While the Dolphins have given up the fifth-most receiving yards to opposing tight ends, only the Jaguars have given up fewer touchdowns.
