Fred Jackson is having a heck of a season.Through seven games, the Buffalo Bills running back is only 300-plus rushing yards and one touchdown behind his career-high. He’s currently ranked third among running backs in fantasy points. 

Jackson’s breakout year has shocked just about everyone.

Including his wife

Danielle, a fantasy football enthusiast, didn’t draft her husband until the fifth round of her draft. She even selected another running back, Michael Turner, before her man.

“[I told her] I’m not going to sit here if you’re skipping over me in these rounds. If you don’t take me, I’m going to call your brother and tell him to pick me up,” Jackson told the Buffalo News

Fortunately, she finally listened. And not just for fantasy football purposes.
