Summary

Word at the draft was that the Bills were trying hard to move up and draft Carlos Hyde and when that failed, settled for a trade with the Eagles for Bryce Brown. The team that runs the ball more than anyone else appears to want to reinforce their depth behind Spiller and Fred Jackson. After what appeared to be a breakout season in 2012, Spiller's production throttled down a bit last season as his yards per carry dropped in part because the quarterback situation allowed defenses to key on the run, but mostly because of a high ankle sprain. The acquisition of Brown can help the Bills avoid overuse, but Spiller was an RB1 in 2012 with just a little over 200 carries. His touchdown total dropped as well in 2013, though it was never high to begin with. Expect his yards per carry to creep back up, but his touches to stay about the same. Healthy and with some money to play for, Spiller is an intriguing player this year. (June 19)

Latest News

Bills | More touches for C.J. Spiller (Tue Jul 15, 10:02 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller will likely touch the ball 20 times per game if the offense is operating efficiently, according to BuffaloBills.com.

Our View: Spiller is in a contract year, to that type of workload would be great for him if he can stay healthy. The Bills are in a "win now" mode as the coaching staff wants to impress any potential new ownership. Spiller could pay off nicely for fantasy owners with his current ADP of RB15 (3.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.
