Boobie Dixon RB BUF 15 Days1 Comment

Dixon had five carries for 60 yards in Sunday's overtime win at Chicago.

Dixon ripped off a 47-yard run late in the second quarter, and had one carry inside the red zone. Bryce Brown was a healthy scratch Sunday, so it appears as though Buffalo is comfortable using Dixon behind C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. The veteran runner is a bruiser, so it's possible he sees some goal line work certain weeks.

Dixon (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bears, the Bills' official site reports.

C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are ahead of him on the Bills' depth chart, which caps his fantasy utility, but it's still possible that Dixon could see some short-yardage work for the team.

Dixon (hamstring), who didn't practice Friday, is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, the Post-Standard reports.

Having missed practice both Thursday and Friday, Dixon looks to be truly questionable for Sunday's game. If he does suit up, he could perhaps vulture a touchdown, but any other production would come as a surprise.

Dixon (hamstring) did not participate in Friday's practice.

Dixon was added to the injury report Thursday with a hamstring ailment, and it appears the injury is significant enough to hold him out for an additional day. Both C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are ahead of him on the Bills' depth chart anyway, so even if Dixon does turn things around and suit up Sunday, he likely won't see a heavy workload.

Dixon was added to the Bills' injury report Thursday with a hamstring injury, Chris Brown of Buffalobills.com reports.

The report relays that coach Doug Marrone calls Dixon's injury "a concern," which suggests that the running back's Week 1 availability could be in peril. He's listed behind C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson on the Bills' posted running back depth chart, ahead of Bryce Brown.

Dixon scored the Bills' only touchdown in Saturday's preseason loss at Pittsburgh on a one-yard plunge. He carried 10 times for 26 yards and caught one pass for five yards.

It's starting to look like Boobie might be the team's main goal line back at close range. While that would only give him modest value in touchdown-heavy leagues and he'd only have regular production if Fred Jackson or C.J. Spiller were to get hurt, this could work to curtail the overall value of guys like Jackson or Spiller, who for all his talents only has 12 rushing touchdowns in four NFL seasons. Buffalo's red-zone offense is certainly worth tracking once the real games get going.

Dixon rushed nine times for 28 yards with a score in Friday's preseason win at Carolina. He also caught one pass for six yards.

Dixon is having a great camp, though the star of the backfield Friday was Bryce Brown, who's competing with Dixon for the top backup role behind C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. Unfortunately, Bills coach Doug Marrone says he'll typically use just two backs in regular season action. One way it could shake out, with everyone healthy, is that Brown serves as the insurance to the top two, but Dixon ends up being the goal-line back, something he has a knack for given his aggressive style and strong, 233-pound build.

Bills agreed to terms with RB Anthony Dixon, formerly of the 49ers.

It's not an ideal landing spot. He's not going to play much on offense but will be a valuable contributor chasing down kickoffs and punts. Dixon, 26, is a battering ram at 6-foot-1 and 233 pounds. He'll operate as the No. 3 back behind C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who have combined to miss 13 games the past three years.

Free agent Anthony Dixon tweets he will officially join the Buffalo Bills on Saturday.

If true, Dixon would slot in as the No. 3 tailback in Buffalo behind C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. It is a good signing for the Bills, but seriously damages Dixon's fantasy value. We've always been interested to see what Dixon would do with more playing time, but, barring injury or Jackson's release, Dixon will once again be relegated to a backup role.

Free agent Anthony Dixon has arrived in Buffalo for his Bills visit.

Dixon would likely play special teams and operate as Buffalo's No. 3 tailback behind C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. Despite Jackson's age, this wouldn't be a good landing spot for Dixon's fantasy value. He turns 27 in September.
