Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The team and coach Rex Ryan have been talking all week about "Boobie Time," and now he'll officially get that chance. On the bright side, Dixon will get first crack at getting the running game going against a Titans defense that hasn't been great against the run. On the flip side, Dixon doesn't have a track record of being a feature back -- even though the colorful character will be the first to tell you he's perfect for the job -- and there are already rumblings that that team will mix in Dan Herron and Cierre Wood if Boobie Time turns into Bust Time. That all said, he's the Buffalo back to own if you're in a Week 5 pinch.
Dixon's two teammates, Karlos Williams and LeSean McCoy, did not practice for the second straight day Thursday.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Dixon signed with the Bills after spending his first four seasons in San Francisco as a solid special teams player and occassional goal-line back. His role should be very similar in Buffalo with C.J. Spiller, Fred Jackson and Bryce Brown hogging all of the carries in the run game.

2013

Dixon will compete for a back-up running back job but should really make the team because of his special teams play and his ability to mentor young players. He has averaged fewer than 30 carries and 90 yards in each of his last two seasons and shouldn't be counted on for much more heading into 2013.

2011

Dixon split backup duties with Brian Westbrook last year, but when Frank Gore went down with a season-ending hip injury, the 31-year-old veteran outplayed him. Dixon got just 3.4 YPC, and his running style is best described as plodding. Westbrook isn’t going to return to San Francisco, but the team drafted Kendall Hunter in the fourth round, and GM Trent Baalke has already declared him the No. 2 back, rendering Dixon nothing more than San Francisco’s RB3.

2010

Dixon showed up to offseason OTA workouts slightly out of shape and missed practice time due to a hamstring injury. He didn't give off the best first impression, but he's still expected to battle with Glen Coffee for the number two running back job during training camp. Even if Dixon is relegated to third-string, he could end up in the mix for short-yardage carries.
