|The teamís decision to resign Ingram makes Khiry Robinson nothing more than a handcuffing option heading into the 2015 season. Additionally, the addition of Spiller to the offense will limit Robinsonís touches, even if Ingram is forced to miss any action. Still, he proved he can be an asset to the rushing attack after averaging 4.8 yards per carry on 76 rushes in 2014.The team will likely view him as a better between-the-tackles runner than Spiller, effectively giving him a shot to vulture two or three touchdowns throughout the season. As one of the NFLís better young backup runners, he could draw trade interest, but chances are he will be buried on the depth chart to open 2015. As a handcuff option to Ingram, he lacks upside to make him worthy of being selected in all but the deepest of leagues or dynasty formats.
|Spiller a good bet to remain on the roster?|
Will be cheaper to keep than to cut prior to June 1

|C.J. Spiller's first year in New Orleans was a flop, partly because of a minor knee surgery he underwent during training camp. But if the Saints cut him before June 1, he will actually count more against the cap ($5.3 million) than if they keep him. So there's a good chance they'll give him another summer to regain his spark. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: With Mark Ingram, Spiller, Khiry Robinson and Tim Hightower among others on the roster, the expectation is the Saints will be able to "downsize" at running back this season. There is still much mystery as to why Spiller became such an afterthought in his first year in New Orleans. An injury-free offseason will be huge for Spiller, who could be a late-round fantasy value this summer if he is able to seize the Darren Sproles/Pierre Thomas role many thought he might earn last year.
