Summary

The former first-round pick of the Bills had one season where he played to his promise. Injuries, ball security issues, and difficulties making consistent, disciplined decisions between the tackles have reduced Spiller to a journeyman backup. He's had brief and failed stints with the Seahawks and Saints before landing in Kansas City. GM John Dorsey says Spiller finally looks healthy and they are excited about the explosive potential he could bring to the Chiefs. Whether that's as a return specialist or a running back is difficult to gauge before training camp. If Spiller somehow shows that he's a faster learner than he displayed with three other teams, he has the physical ability to challenge Spencer Ware as the feature back in the Chiefs offense. He could easily make fans see shades of Jamaal Charles. However, that's a low-odds proposition based on his NFL track record. Expect Spiller to compete for the No. 3 role on the running back depth chart and as a return specialist who could push De'Anthony Thomas. (May 25)

Chiefs | C.J. Spiller making push for roster spot (Sun Aug 20, 12:03 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs RB C.J. Spiller 'looks like his old, blazing-fast self' and may force the team to for running backs on the 53-man roster, according to the Kansas City Star's Terez A. Paylor.

Our View: Spiller doesn't have fantasy relevance without multiple injuries in the Chiefs backfield, but if he is good enough to justify a roster spot, that's a reason to monitor him in deep dynasty leagues.
