Bills released RB Anthony Dixon.
The no-brainer moves creates $1.15 million in cap space, and $1.15 million in real savings. Bothered by a lingering calf injury, Dixon turned 21 carries into just 44 yards (2.09 YPC) last season. A supposed short-yardage hammer, Dixon has never been effective in his six-year career. He turns 29 in September. Tue, Mar 1, 2016 01:26:00 PM

Bills RB Anthony Dixon called next week's matchup with the Jets "the Super Bowl."

Coach Rex Ryan downplayed the game after the Bills' win over the Cowboys Sunday, but he undoubtedly would love to knock New York out of the playoffs. Despite being eliminated from the postseason, the Bills should be fully motivated against the Jets.

Speaking Monday, Bills coach Rex Ryan said RB Anthony Dixon is "not where we want him to be right now."

Ryan said Dixon remains behind after missing camp time with a calf injury. Dixon wasn't on the Week 5 injury report, but was indeed ineffective against the Titans. If Karlos Williams (concussion) and LeSean McCoy (hamstring) remain sidelined for Week 6, Boom Herron will be the recommended play over Dixon.

Anthony Dixon rushed seven times for 19 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 20 yards Week 5 against the Titans.

Dixon had two fewer carries and was less effective than the newly-signed Boom Herron. If Karlos Williams (concussion) is forced to miss again next week, Herron would be the favorite to lead the team in carries. Dixon will not be worth starting even if Williams is out next week.

Anthony Dixon will be active for Week 5, but is still feeling the effects of his calf injury.

Dixon is not on the Week 5 injury report, but RBs coach Anthony Lynn isn't sure how long he'll hold up in Sunday's game against the Titans. "He hasn’t been quite as explosive as I’ve seen him," Lynn said. "That’s why we went and signed another guy." That guy is Boom Herron, a back the Buffalo News believes could end up leading the backfield in touches. More than ever, Dixon is shaping up as a touchdown-dependent RB3 in the absence of LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams.

Coach Rex Ryan confirmed Anthony Dixon will be the Bills' No. 1 running back Week 5 against the Titans if Karlos Williams (concussion) can't play.

This also assumes LeSean McCoy (hamstring) won't be ready. Dixon is a 233-pound plodder with a career 3.4 YPC average. He's mainly a special teams player. If he were to get the start, it'd be hard to get excited about Dixon. Boom Herron and Cierre Wood would also be in the mix. Ryan "hopes" to have Williams.
Wed, Oct 7, 2015 11:06:00 AM

Anthony Dixon rushed three times for one yard and a touchdown in Buffalo's Week 1 win over the Colts.

Dixon wasn't targeted in the passing game. Dixon managed to vulture a score from LeSean McCoy, but was a distant third on the depth chart behind Shady and rookie Karlos Williams. He's not on the fantasy radar.
Sun, Sep 13, 2015 06:58:00 PM

Bills RBs Boobie Dixon (calf) and Bryce Brown (hamstring) returned to practice on Thursday.

Both had been out most of camp. LeSean McCoy saw some conditioning work on the side, but he likely will not practice again until the regular season. After a nightmare run of injuries, the Bills' running backs are finally getting healthy.
Thu, Aug 27, 2015 12:10:00 PM

Bills RB Anthony Dixon could be sidelined up to a month with a calf injury suffered in Monday's training camp practice.

Dixon can't afford to miss that much time. He's already projected to be on the roster bubble, with some beat writers considering him the odd man out in the Buffalo backfield. Dixon is competing with Bryce Brown and rookie Karlos Williams for what is believed to be two roster spots behind LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson. Dixon is a 28-year-old plodder, but brings value on special teams.
Wed, Aug 5, 2015 10:41:00 AM

WKBW Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia considers Anthony Dixon to be the odd man out in the Bills' backfield.

As Buscaglia notes, it's way too early to be doing 53-man roster projections. But readers gobble this stuff up, and it's something to talk about while we await training camp. Buscaglia has rookie Karlos Williams and polarizing Bryce Brown beating out Dixon. Williams plays special teams like Dixon, and Brown has a ton more running talent. Dixon is a plodding 28-year-old short-yardage back.
Fri, May 22, 2015 10:07:00 AM

Anthony Dixon rushed seven times for 27 yards and a touchdown Week 17 against the Patriots.

Dixon was clearly second fiddle to Fred Jackson against New England, but he was given the team's only goal-line chance early in the second quarter. Dixon converted for his second touchdown of the season. A plodding pile mover, Dixon finishes 2014 with 432 yards on 105 carries (4.1 YPC). With Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller both potential free agents, Dixon could have a role in the Bills offense in 2015.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 06:02:00 PM

Anthony Dixon rushed six times for 26 yards and caught a five-yard pass in the Bills' Week 15 win over Green Bay.

Dixon gave Buffalo some chain-moving runs off the bench, but finished with just the seven touches to Fred Jackson's 23. He's a breather back in the Bills' offense, ahead of Bryce Brown but behind F-Jax on the depth chart.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 04:47:00 PM

Anthony Dixon rushed three times for 15 yards in Sunday's Week 14 loss at Denver.

With Fred Jackson healthy, Dixon and Bryce Brown both take a backseat. Dixon has just nine touches (no catches) over the last two weeks and is not an option against Green Bay in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 08:09:00 PM

Anthony Dixon rushed six times for 25 yards in Buffalo's Week 13 win over the Browns.

Both Dixon and Bryce Brown took a decisive backseat to Fred Jackson, who out-touched his backfield mates 24-9. Dixon will not be on the RB3/FLEX radar for next week's trip to Denver.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 05:15:00 PM

Anthony Dixon rushed 12 times for 54 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's Week 12 win over the Jets.

Dixon rotated with Fred Jackson on early downs and was used in red-zone situations. He played ahead of Bryce Brown, who finished with six carries. Dixon made some nice runs between the tackles, and took an inside handoff for a 30-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Even when Jackson gets fully healthy, Dixon should continue to have a role. He'll be a lower-end RB3 for Week 13 against the Browns.
