Fred Jackson's jersey is in the Hall of Fame. The Buffalo Bills running back saw his No. 22 off to Canton for a 2009 performance in which he became the first player in league history to record 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 kick return yards in the same season. After the Bills drafted C.J. Spiller and retained Marshawn Lynch in the off-season, it looked like Jackson was going to have a tough time having similar success in 2010.

Jackson, however, is having a career year - and he's doing an awful lot of doubling. From 2007 to 2009, Jackson rushed for five touchdowns over a three-year period. He has five in 2010. From '07 to '09, Jackson had two receiving touchdowns. He has two more this season. Finally, in his first three seasons, Jackson had three 100-yard rushing performances. Yep, you guessed it - he has three such performances this season, and has added his first career 100-yard receiving game, to boot.

Since the Bills traded Lynch after a Week 4 loss to the Jets, Jackson has rushed for 688 yards (at 4.3 yards per rush), caught 26 passes for 191 yards, and scored six of his seven touchdowns on the season. His 2010 jersey may not end up in Canton next fall, but there's very little doubt that Jackson is putting together the highest-impact season of his career.
