Bills backfield could become a headache

Marshawn Lynch is back for the Buffalo Bills, and a shared backfield with Fred Jackson already appears in the works.

In the 38-10 loss to the Dolphins Sunday, Lynch (eight carries) and Jackson (nine carries) shared the load almost equally, though the latter was more effective on the ground with 42 yards. Lynch finished with just eight yards rushing.

The duo also shared time on passing downs, with Lynch posting five receptions to Jackson’s three. If this sort of scenario continues, fantasy owners are going to have a tough time trying to decide on who to start and who to sit each week. And don’t forget, the Bills are still working Lynch into game shape after his suspension, so don’t expect anything to change for the foreseeable future.

On a positive note, the Dolphins backfield duo of Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams is proving that not all committees are cause for concern in fantasy circles. Brown had a monster game with 115 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Williams was solid as well with 85 yards rushing and a score of his own.
