2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
C.J. Spiller was a tremendous disappointment to those owners who used a first-round pick to draft him last season based on his tantalizing skill set and his coaching staff's promise to “run him until he pukes.” Due to an early season high ankle sprain, Spiller decreased his workload, but he was still effective running the ball, averaging 4.6 yards per carry. Of course that was still a steep drop from his 6.0-yard-per-carry average in 2012. Spiller's numbers dropped across the board as his total yards went from 1,703 to 1,112, 8 to 2 in touchdowns and 43 to 33 in receptions. The staff has talked up an expanded role for the former Clemson Tiger once again. With his ankle now fully recovered, Fred Jackson entering the season at 33 years old and with the Bills commitment to the run, Spiller could end up as a draft-day bargain. Short-sighted owners, who are only looking at his 2012 numbers, are missing Spiller's elite-level speed, great lateral agility and a toughness that belies his smallish stature. The Bills led the NFL in rushing attempts (546) last season and should be near the top of that list once again this season. If Spiller is able to grab the lion's share of those carries a top-10 season is easily within his reach. Although he does have a $2.1MM player option for the 2015 season, he will be entering the last season of his rookie contract in 2014, so he'll be playing for his last big payday this year. Health + Motivation + Talent + Opportunity = Good Things for Spiller in 2014.

Comment: Spiller played through an ankle injury the majority of last season and still managed 4.6 ypc. He can crack the fantasy top ten at RB if he remains healthy.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury C.J. Spiller activated off IR/designated to return
Readiness for Week 16 will be determined in practice
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 15, 4:15 pm

Buffalo Bills
Bills HC Doug Marrone: C.J. Spiller (clavicle) is cleared to return and will be added to the active roster. His readiness for return will be gauged this week. (Buffalo Bills on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Even though the Bills are fighting for a playoff spot, it seems unlikely that Spiller will see much - if any - action in Week 16 after missing the previous seven games. Expect another heavy workload for Fred Jackson for at least one more week, with Bryce Brown, Anthony Dixon and maybe Spiller pitching in against Oakland.


Injury Fred Jackson not practicing on Monday
Halfway through expected 2-4 week recovery for groin injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 3, 3:10 pm

Buffalo Bills
Bills RB Fred Jackson missed Buffalo’s Week 8 game with a groin injury suffered in Week 7 against Minnesota. He’s been getting treatment and rehabbing throughout the bye week and is hoping to return sooner rather than later. Bills HC Doug Marrone will provide an update this afternoon on Jackson’s chances to return to the lineup this week. (BuffaloBills.com)

FFToday's Take: Bills beat writer Joe Buscaglia tweeted that Jackson did not practice on Monday, which is hardly surprising for a 33-year-old running back just over two weeks into an injury recovery that is expected to take up to four weeks. Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon will continue to hold down the fort in his absence, but Jackson has high-end RB2 potential down the stretch in a C.J. Spiller-less backfield.


Injury Both Spiller, Jackson injured in Week 7
Spiller likely out for the year with broken collarbone
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 19, 8:30 pm

Buffalo Bills
C.J. Spiller's shoulder and emotions were wrecked. Ten minutes earlier, Buffalo Bills center Eric Wood helped running back Fred Jackson limp off the field with a groin injury. Spiller's collar bone reportedly was broken. The Bills could be without Spiller and Jackson for a long time. (Buffalo News)

FFToday's Take: Spiller will have surgery on his collarbone and will likely miss the remainder of the season. Jackson will have an MRI on his groin on Monday. He's likely out for Week 8 and the Bills have a bye in Week 9. Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon will be the top two running backs next week and perhaps for the next few weeks until Jackson can return.
