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.

Tashard Choice (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

We'd expect Choice to act as the third-stringer behind Roy Helu and Ryan Torain, but you never know with Mike Shanahan. There's no word yet on the starter for today.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Friday that he anticipates Tashard Choice playing in Week 11 against the Cowboys.

As usual, the Redskins will determine Choice's role during the game, based on "feeling." Said Shanahan of Choice, "I like the way he hits the holes. He'll get some opportunities to play in this game." Feel free to pick up Choice in 10- and 12-team leagues, but he won't be a fantasy option in his Redskins debut.

Redskins OC Kyle Shanahan suggested Thursday that Tashard Choice is still a good distance behind Roy Helu and Ryan Torain in the backfield pecking order.

Shanahan hinted that Choice may not even play versus his former team this week. Knowing the Redskins, that could mean anything from surprise starter to game-day inactive. Our expectations for Choice remain low.

Coach Mike Shanahan still isn't sure if Tashard Choice (hamstring) will play against the Cowboys this week.

"How he's going to do this week, I can't tell you for sure," said Shanahan. "But he's feeling a lot more comfortable with our system. He's biting at the bit to get going. I think there's a big upside with him. But after a week of practice, I can't tell you for sure." Adding Choice to the whims of Shanahan will be just one more headache for Roy Helu owners.
