Fred Jackson or Steve Johnson?? WHIR

Postby oden » Fri Oct 05, 2012 2:45 pm

It's a tough matchup for both of them, but who do you like better at flex??

Jackson practiced fully this week, even though he still has a brace on. But with Spiller not 100%, Jackson might be pretty productive.

I feel like Johnson has a higher upside but don't want a repeat of last week...

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and leave a link!

I would go with Johnson. He should see around 7 targets with the Bills playing from behind.

Stevie Johnson will play a great game however Fred Jackson will get most of the carries and is a great player. Going against the tough 49ers defense it is crucial to get a good run game going. Im a huge fan of Jackson, he has a great skill set and will likely have to carry the Bills offense.

Sorry for any grammar errors.

When in doubt, go with the RB. I'd go with Fred Jackson. More touches. Stevie has a tougher matchup IMO.

Bad matchup for both. I literally just wrote on another topic that Jax needs to be on the bench this week, where I have him, but I would play him over Stevie. He is more of a sure-thing.

Honestly I would play Johnson. Even though it's the 9ers, Fitzpatrick doesn't have much to throw to, but the 9ers have destroyed the run. Johnson has a higher upside. if it's going to anyone, it's him.

tough call but think I go FJax he'll get the carries

Thanks for all the input!

Although it's discouraging that everyone is split 50/50 haha. Maybe I just toss a coin...

one more opinion won't hurt... I'll say go with Johnson, because I think the odds of Johnson getting into the endzone are higher than Jackson getting a TD. Bills are going to be throwing more than passing for sure... help? viewtopic.php?f=19&t=524271
