|Flop. Dud. Bust. All can be used to describe the down turn of C.J. Spillerís career. He remains in the mix for New Orleans but has not shown the explosiveness that made him an effective runner at Clemson and in Buffalo. Without a clear path to regular playing time, an inability to be effective in recent years and added talent to the roster fantasy owners will want to keep their distance from Spiller on draft day.
Travaris Cadet serves as depth in both the running and passing attack. If the team loses all confidence in Spiller, Cadet could see a few more opportunities. Daniel Lasco was added in seventh round of the 2016 draft. The rookie out of Cal recovered from a hip injury to post eye-popping numbers at the Scouting Combine. He fits the typical explosive play-making outside-the-tackles type of runner New Orleans has coveted over the Sean Payton era but will be need to prove himself on special teams before climbing the depth chart.
| C.J. Spiller latches on with Seattle|
C.J. Prosise expected to miss another three weeks

|RENTON, Wash. -- The Seahawks have signed free-agent running back C.J. Spiller, coach Pete Carroll said in a conference call Wednesday. The deal will be for one year and has been made official by the team. To make room on the roster, the Seahawks waived running back Terrence Magee. Thomas Rawls (fibula) is expected to be out several weeks. Third-down back C.J. Prosise is dealing with a hand injury and won't be fully healed for three more weeks, Carroll said. (ESPN.com)|
FFToday's Take: The stars have aligned for Christine Michael to shoulder the workload in Seattle for the near future. He should dominate the workload in Week 4 but remains a low end RB2 against a Jets defense that has given up the fourth fewest fantasy points to running backs. With the cupboards barren of any competition, C.J. Spiller will likely be used in passing situations as soon as this weekend.
|Ingram could flirt with 250 carries|
Saints RB discussion
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jul 17, 7:00 am
|An interesting subplot for the season is how many carries Mark Ingram will receive. He finished with 226 carries over 13 games in 2014 and was on pace for 220 last season before suffering an injury that limited him to 12 games.
If the defense improves, it's possible Ingram could flirt with 250 carries. If he adds another 50 catches out of the backfield, as he did last season, he could set career marks in touches.

FFToday's Take: Beat writer Nick Underhill also suggested that Ingram could lose some touches to C.J. Spiller, if Spiller rebounds from his knee injury. However, Tim Hightower appears be the RB of choice for Ingram owners looking for a handcuff. Hightower took over lead back duties the last four weeks of 2015 averaging 82 rushing yards, 32 receiving yards and 1 TD per game.
