Fred Jackson is a 32-year old running back, but he’s one of the more productive ones in NFL history at that age. It’s part of the reason why he’s convinced he can play another three or four seasons.
Appearing on Bills flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550, Jackson was asked how much longer he feels he can maintain his level of play in the league. Jackson believes he can and had some good reasons why.
“I want to get three or four more years in,” he said. “I confidently believe I can do that. Especially with the workload being split between [C.J. Spiller] and I. That definitely gives me the opportunity to be out here three or four more years and competing with these guys and getting this thing turned around. That’s the number one goal, getting this thing turned around and giving this city something to be excited about and that’s what I want to do before I’m out of here.”
We keep expecting Jackson to hit the wall and the guy just keeps grinding out productive seasons. With C.J. Spiller dealing with an ankle injury for much of the year, F-Jax finished as the #11 RB in fantasy. As long as he's around, Spiller's upside is somewhat limited.
