2) What will Fred Jackson’s role be in 2015?

Mr. Buffalo Bill some have called him. Either way, he has called Orchard Park home since he stepped foot into the league in 2007, trucking through defenders and pushing piles the extra two yards to get his offense a new set of downs. But with young blood in the face of LeSean McCoy, it will be interesting to see how much of a back seat Jackson is going to take.

He had a mostly 50/50 split with CJ Spiller last season, with a good contrast of Spiller’s speed and Jackson’s toughness and durability in the backfield. But with McCoy providing both and star potential, how much will Jackson really run?

Will he be that guy they go to on 3rd and 1 when they need a first down? Or how about when the Bills are inside the 5-yard line and are looking for six? Jackson has proved that he still has the strength to push piles forward, maybe not as much as he used to, but maybe enough that he will still prove useful in 2015.
