Anthony Dixon RB BUF 4 Days

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.

Free agent Anthony Dixon has left his Titans visit without a contract, and will visit the Bills next.

Dixon would be an intriguing addition in run-heavy Buffalo, but the Bills appear unlikely to release Fred Jackson heading into the final year of his contract. That means that, as he was in San Francisco, Dixon would be no higher than third on the depth chart. He'd be an upgrade on Tashard Choice.

CSN Bay Area considers 49ers RB Anthony Dixon "50-50" to make the 53-man roster.

Dixon earned his way onto the team last summer, but ended up playing just 32 offensive snaps. Dixon could be out of luck if fourth-round pick Marcus Lattimore (knee) manages to avoid the reserve/NFI list or injured reserve to begin the season.

Contrary to previous speculation, 49ers GM Trent Baalke and OC Greg Roman suggest RB Anthony Dixon has played his way onto the final roster.

"I think we can look to 'Dix' to have his most productive season as a Niner," Roman said Tuesday morning. Baalke praised Dixon for a "tremendous offseason," valuable special teams play and a newfound versatility as a halfback/fullback hybrid on offense. Dixon's rise is bad news for Rock Cartwright, who may be the odd man out.

49ers RB Anthony Dixon is unlikely make the 53-man roster.

Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, and LaMichael James are obvious locks to stick. Coach Jim Harbaugh already said Brandon Jacobs' spot is safe and Rock Cartwright is expected to stay on as a special team contributor. That leaves Dixon on the outside look in. Reportedly in great shape, the 6'1/233 Dixon figures to get snatched up quickly on waivers.
