Bills RB Jackson doesn't feel appreciated

ESPN - [Full Article]

Bills RB Fred Jackson expressed his unhappiness following practice Monday, saying he feels underappreciated and uncertain of where he stands.

"I feel like a No. 1 back," Jackson said. "I feel like I should be treated like one, know what's going on, know where I stand and what the situation is."

He spoke after the Bills returned to practice following a 24-10 preseason loss at Denver in a game second-year running back C.J. Spiller started and received most of the playing time with the starters.

Jackson said his concerns were not directed at Spiller, but instead at "everybody."

Fantasy Impact: 

We consider Jackson a nice RB3 option and he's getting a lot of love in mocks with an ADP of the 7th round. Jackson is the better back and it could be a case of saving his legs for the season.

In the story, head coach Chan Gailey said he considers Jackson and Spiller starting backs, but Jackson is "a little bit ahead." This could be a sign the team is close to working Spiller in the offense more than last year.

We have Spiller ranked 49th. He had 74 rushes last year and averaged just 20 yards a game. Seems like he may get more work this year.
