|Gailey: Choice is not a 'great back' -- Tue Dec 11 11:48 am --|
Choice will not take away carries from Spiller
|Bills coach Chan Gailey said Tashard Choice is not a “great back” and as a result will not take a significant portion of carries from C.J. Spiller. Some thought Choice would step into Fred Jackson’s role over the last three games but that is not the case. "We're going to get the opportunity here in the next few weeks for [Spiller] to get it a lot and we won't have what I term two great backs," Gailey said. "I think Tashard is a very good back, but to me he's not in Fred's category. So there won't be a lot of sharing of duties. C.J. will have to take a big part of the load now." (Buffalo Bills.com)|
FF Today's Take: Not that you ever want a player to get hurt, but Spiller owners have wanted their explosive back to get more touches all year. Now that Jackson is out for the season, Spiller owners have their wish. Spiller goes against Seattle and their 8th ranked rush defense, but you cannot afford to sit Spiller at this point in the season. In Jackson’s absence, Spiller is considered a top fantasy RB and the last time the Seahawks traveled to the West coast they gave up 27 points to Miami fantasy running backs.
