Tashard Choice RB BUF 10 Months
Tashard Choice rushed seven times for 50 yards in the Bills' third preseason game.
Choice is the looking like the clear-cut favorite to back up Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller. 2011 fifth-rounder Johnny White has been dealing with an ankle injury in training camp, and is squarely on the bubble. White appeared in 12 games last year, primarily on special teams, and is not eligible for the practice squad.

Tashard Choice rushed one time for a 4-yard touchdown and added one catch for nine yards in the Week 17 loss to the Patriots.
Coach Chan Gailey continues to put unwarranted faith in his old college runner from Georgia Tech. Choice vultured a goal-line carry from C.J. Spiller and continued to play ahead of Johnny White. Perhaps Gailey should note that Choice was cut by two teams this year and averaged just 2.66 yards per carry on 57 totes in 2011. With Fred Jackson set to return in 2012, Choice should be looking for a new home in free agency.

Bills RB Tashard Choice carried twice for a net loss of eight yards in Week 12.
Choice's carries went for -5 and -3 yards. Johnny White and C.J. Spiller are both better running backs than Choice, so don't expect an impact here down the stretch. Choice is not worth owning in 12-team fantasy leagues.

According to Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com, Tashard Choice is expected to be active and see playing time in Sunday's game against the Jets.
Choice only practiced twice since being signed by the Bills on Wednesday, but his familiarity with Buffalo's offense will give him a good chance to play on third downs and in short yardage situations. Choice rushed for 3,365 yards as a three year starter under coach Chan Gailey at Georgia Tech, and will compete with Johnny White as the direct backup to C.J. Spiller.

Tashard Choice ran for 3,365 yards over three years under Bills coach Chan Gailey at Georgia Tech.
Choice has been abysmal as a runner over the last two seasons, rushing 100 times for 325 yards (3.25 YPC) while with the Cowboys and Redskins. But Gailey saw enough to claim him and now it's unclear if Choice or rookie Johnny White is C.J. Spiller's direct backup. With the Jets' rugged run defense on deck, it's a hands-off situation in fantasy for now.

Bills claimed RB Tashard Choice off waivers from the Redskins.
It's further confirmation Fred Jackson (fibula) is staring at a lengthy absence. After carrying the ball 28 times for only 75 yards in six games for the Cowboys, Choice was horrendous for the Redskins last Sunday, gaining just seven yards on six carries. With C.J. Spiller yet to prove he can run the ball with any success between-the-tackles, Choice should get a chance to prove himself in Buffalo, but is a low-upside fantasy flier.

Redskins waived RB Tashard Choice.
The Redskins have opted to replace Choice with practice squad RB Evan Royster after seeing just six carries for seven yards in one game from the Ex-Cowboy. Choice did a lot of talking in his three weeks with the club, but failed to impress on the field. Flirting with a per-carry average near 2.0, Choice won't draw much interest league-wide.

Tashard Choice rushed six times for seven yards and added one catch for two yards in Sunday's overtime loss to the Cowboys.
Making his Redskins debut, Choice was the latest wrench coach Mike Shanahan threw into his backfield. Choice got a couple series to himself and ended up with more touches than "starter" Ryan Torain. The ex-Cowboy is now part of this three-man backfield, but playing time isn't his only obstacle. Choice is averaging just 2.41 yards per carry on the season.
