  • Bills plan on Fred Jackson playing this week
    The Bills are planning on Fred Jackson (questionable, groin) playing in Monday's game against the Jets.

    Advice: Jackson didn't suffer any setbacks in practice and is on track to play this week. At less than 100 percent, he could be limited to third down work in a committee with Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon. Jackson is the No. 27 running back in Rotoworld's Week 12 rankings. Rotoworld.com

    Chris Johnson (knee) is probable for Week 12.

    Advice: Johnson didn't miss any practice time despite being listed with a knee injury. He's taken on a bigger role with Michael Vick at quarterback, but has less than 30 rushing yards in four of his last six games. Johnson isn't a recommended fantasy option for Monday night's matchup with the Bills. Rotoworld.com

Averaging 26 carries a game over his last four, Ingram is almost a lock to see 20 touches against the Ravens. Thomas will unseat Travaris Cadet as the passing-game back when he returns. Rotoworld.com

    The Bills and Jets' Week 12 game will be played at 7ET Monday evening in Detroit.

    Advice: It's the second time in five years Detroit has hosted wayward snow travelers, as the Vikings and Giants squared off in Motown on Dec. 13, 2010. It's the most-fair solution, as playing in MetLife Stadium would have been an unfair advantage for the Jets in a game the Bills have to win to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

The Saints have badly missed Thomas in the screen game, and need him back more than ever with Brandin Cooks (thumb) done for the season.

    Advice: The Buffalo area got hit with even more snow overnight and a travel ban in the area remains in effect. At this point, it's difficult to see the Week 12 game at the Ralph against the Jets going down Sunday. Not only are the Bills at a massive disadvantage having not practiced yet this week, but even New York governor Andrew Cuomo is calling a Sunday game "impractical" due to public safety concerns.

The Bills aren't able to practice Wednesday, as the coaches and players can't all make it to the facility.

    Advice: Ingram was held out of the end zone, a rarity for a running back who gets the ball 30 times. The day of sound and fury but no pay off came against one of the league's very worst run defenses. Ingram has now gotten the ball a preposterous 116 times over the Saints' past four games, a number they know they have to rein in.

    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora expects contract-year RB Mark Ingram to reach the free-agent market.

    Advice: The Saints are already projected to be over the 2015 salary cap, having a ton of money tied up in Drew Brees, the offensive line, Jairus Byrd, Jimmy Graham, and Junior Galette. Tagging Ingram at around $8 million also makes no sense. Ingram flipped the switch on his career late last season, and it's carried over into 2014.

Drawing sticky coverage from Brent Grimes, Watkins was overthrown on his lone deep target. He also ran the wrong route on a Kyle Orton heave out of the end zone, resulting in a safety via intentional grounding. Watkins appeared to quit on a fourth-quarter route, but it's hard to know for sure without viewing the coach's film.

  • Orton, Bills go quietly on road vs. Dolphins
    Kyle Orton completed 22-of-39 passes for 193 yards, zero touchdowns and zero turnovers in Buffalo's 22-9, Week 11 loss to the Dolphins.

    Advice: In a word, Orton was dismal. With the Dolphins' elite secondary wrapping up his receivers downfield, Orton never bothered to challenge, but was inaccurate at the short-to-intermediate levels. He rarely threw beyond the sticks, making big plays seem like a distant dream for the Bills' sputtering offense. Buffalo has now gone 114:51 without a touchdown, an unfathomable number. The Bills may spend some of their three days off considering going back to E.J. Manuel, but we'd expect Orton to be under center against the Jets' atrocious pass defense in Week 11. Rotoworld.com

  • Jackson aggravated groin injury vs. Chiefs
    Fred Jackson aggravated his groin injury in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

    Advice: In other words, Jackson's Thursday inactive wasn't just a matter of the Bills being on a short week. Jackson returned from his initial injury quicker than anticipated, and now it's costing him another game. He should be considered questionable for Week 12. Bryce Brown is getting the start against the Dolphins, but should rotate with Anthony Dixon. Rotoworld.com

  • Sammy Watkins officially active for Week 11
    Sammy Watkins (groin) is active for Week 11 against the Dolphins.

    Advice: As previously reported, Fred Jackson (groin) is inactive. Watkins' health isn't as big of a concern as his matchup, as he'll be doing battle with Brent Grimes. Watkins has flashed WR1 upside the past month, but is a low-end WR2 for Week 11. Also inactive for the Bills are WR Marquise Goodwin, RB Phillip Tanner, CB Ron Brooks, LB Randell Johnson, OT Cyrus Kouandjio and DE Jarius Wynn. Mike Williams is active. Rotoworld.com

  • F-Jax inactive for Thursday Night Football
    Fred Jackson (groin) is inactive for Week 11 against the Dolphins.

    Advice: F-Jax himself broke the news on Twitter. The short week was simply too much to overcome. It leaves Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon as the Bills' runners. Early-down back Dixon has the higher floor, but will likely find running lanes scarce against a Dolphins' run defense allowing only 3.9 yards per carry. Miami has surrendered just four rushing scores all year. Brown has the higher-ceiling as the Bills' pass-catching back. The Buffalo News' Tim Graham has gone as far as to recommend Brown as a PPR play, believing the Bills may focus on short passes since ground yards will be hard to come by. Neither player is a recommended RB2. Rotoworld.com

  • Mark Ingram (shoulder) still limited Thursday
    Mark Ingram (shoulder) remained limited on Thursday.

    Advice: It's the same routine Ingram followed last week before touching the ball 30 times against the 49ers. He'll be good to go as an RB1 against the Bengals' struggling run defense. Rotoworld.com

  • Pierre Thomas (shoulder) still not practicing
    Pierre Thomas (shoulder, ribs) remained sidelined Thursday.

    Advice: Thomas appears all but certain to miss his fourth-consecutive game. Travaris Cadet will continue to handle passing-down work against the Bengals. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Fred Jackson 'almost certainly' out
    A source tells the Buffalo News that Fred Jackson (groin) almost certainly won't play in Thursday night's game at Miami.

    Advice: The short week has proven too much to overcome for Jackson after he handled 26 snaps against the Chiefs Sunday. So the Bills will have to go into a pivotal division game with Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown as their top-two backs. Look for the inside-running Dixon to draw the start, but we'd rather take a shot on Brown as the explosive back that's better in the pass game. Jackson owners need to sit tight in the hopes he gets to 100 percent for a tasty fantasy playoff schedule (vs. GB Week 15, at OAK Week 16). Rotoworld.com

  • Brent Grimes expected to shadow Watkins
    Brent Grimes is expected to shadow Sammy Watkins Thursday night.

    Advice: Watkins' groin does not appear to be an issue after he played on 93 percent of the snaps Sunday and practiced in full this week. However, the presence of Grimes knocks Watkins down to more of a WR2/3 this week. The good news is that when these teams matched up in Week 2, Watkins went 8-117-1 even though E.J. Manuel was at quarterback (as pointed out in Evan Silva's Matchup column). Rotoworld.com
