Saints | C.J. Spiller a good fit in New Orleans?

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 17:52:44 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller has a perfect skill-set for head coach Sean Payton's system, which relies on getting the ball to players in space, according Chris Wesseling of NFL.com. Wesseling believes Spiller is significantly more talented than RB Reggie Bush and RB Darren Sproles, who both thrived in Payton's system.

Fantasy Tip: Pass-catching backs like Spiller have enjoyed a lot of success in Payton's system. He has a good chance to slide into RB2 territory in PPR formats, and he should make a solid flex option in standard leagues.

Saints | HC excited to use C.J. Spiller

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 13:37:51 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller will have plays designed specifically for him in head coach Sean Payton's offense. Payton said he's anxious to see how Spiller fits into the offense with his speed and good hands.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller will assume the role previously held by Reggie Bush, Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas. The aforementioned running backs were all legitimate pass-catching threats in Payton's pass-happy offense. The key for Spiller will be staying healthy after suffering a broken collarbone last season. If he can stay on the field, he has RB2 potential in point-per-reception leagues.

Saints | C.J. Spiller could see most touches

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 06:20:32 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller could lead the team in touches over RB Mark Ingram, in the opinion of beat writer Nick Underhill.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller appears to fit the team's no-huddle style well, and Ingram isn't much of a receiver. Spiller could fall into the role that Darren Sproles did so well in NOLA. He's a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues, while Ingram is on par with that for the between-the-tackles work.

Saints | Sean Payton high on C.J. Spiller

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 10:11:13 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller received some praise from head coach Sean Payton after the team was surprised to be able to land him in free agency. "His cutup is unbelievable," Payton said of Spiller. "And I'm not talking about last season because I think it became challenging, but you go back a couple of years and start looking at his screen reel, a sweep reel, a return reel."

Fantasy Tip: It'll be a committee approach in New Orleans again with Mark Ingram and Spiller (surprise, surprise), but the fantasy outlook for both runners should be positive. The Saints have a history of finding success for pass-catching backs like Spiller, so he could be a fine value in point-per-reception leagues, and he still has plenty of upside left.

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 09:45:33 -0700

Free-agent RB C.J. Spiller (Bills) agreed to terms with the New Orleans Saints Friday, March 13.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller is an interesting fit in New Orleans. He has great hands out of the backfield and is quick. He should see plenty of looks as the team tries to find a way to replace Jimmy Graham. Spiller has RB2 potential heading into the 2015 season.

Saints | C.J. Spiller to visit NOLA

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 20:13:27 -0700

Free-agent RB C.J. Spiller (Bills) is scheduled to meet with the New Orleans Saints Thursday, March 12, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller would likely fill the role previously held by Darren Sproles in the Crescent City. He would improve the Saints return game, and he has great hands out of the backfield and speed to burn. It would be an interesting fit, and there is plenty of ball to go around in short-yardage receiving situations now that Jimmy Graham is in Seattle.

Cowboys | Dallas in the mix for C.J. Spiller

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 15:01:10 -0700

Free-agent RB C.J. Spiller (Bills) could still be pursued by the Dallas Cowboys if free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Cowboys) is not re-signed.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller would likely take over as starter if Murray were to leave and Spiller be signed, giving him a nice boost and RB2 potential heading into the 2015 season. Of course, a lot needs to happen still for that to take place, including Spiller maintaining his health.

Saints | C.J. Spiller being pursued by NO

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 14:52:30 -0700

Free-agent RB C.J. Spiller (Bills) has reportedly drawn interest from the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints are in need of a pass-catching running back with the departure of Pierre Thomas; although, Spiller would still be splitting time with RBs Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson. It's still too early to determine Spiller's value, but he'll probably be no more than a low-end RB2 no matter where he ends up.
