Saints | C.J. Spiller should be ready

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 10:47:25 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller (knee) should be ready for the start of the regular season, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller recently underwent knee surgery and will need several weeks to recover, so he probably will not see any playing time in the preseason. Spiller likely will be part of the passing game this season and could also receive some carries. Spiller probably should be selected in late rounds of drafts, but he should have more value in point-per-reception leagues.

Saints | C.J. Spiller had knee surgery

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 13:15:47 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller (knee) underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Friday, Aug. 14, in Pensacola, FLA. Spiller is expected to be ready for the regular-season opener, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller played just nine games in 2014, and his health will be his biggest issue with the Saints. While he's firmly behind Mark Ingram on the depth chart, Spiller should get plenty of playing time in a pass-catching role. It is still tough to justify paying an RB2 price for Spiller in standard leagues.

Saints | C.J. Spiller not expected to play

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 09:26:06 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller is not expected to play in the first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller is not expected to start this season but should have a solid role in the offense in 2015. Spiller probably will have more value in point-per-reception leagues since he should be involved in the passing game. Spiller could be a middle- to late-round option in most leagues.

Saints | C.J. Spiller third on depth chart

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 20:43:47 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller is listed third on the depth chart heading into the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 13, against the Baltimore Ravens behind RBs Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson. Spiller is listed as the primary kickoff and punt return man.

Fantasy Tip: Don't put a ton of stock into preseason depth charts, but monitor Spiller's performance in the first couple of preseason games. In this offense he has the chance to be a fantasy stud, especially in formats which reward points per reception (PPR).

Saints | Lofty expectations for C.J. Spiller

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 14:47:50 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller could catch around 60 passes this year, in the opinion of Mike Triplett of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller is certainly expected to be used in the passing game frequently. Mark Ingram should provide the thunder while Spiller provides the lightning, assuming he can stay healthy. View Spiller as a RB2 in PPR leagues this season.

Saints | C.J. Spiller has run well vs. NFC

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 11:54:53 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller has averaged 5.56 yards per carry against NFC teams over his five-year career. Spiller and the Saints will face NFC teams 12 times in the 2015 regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller may not do a whole lot of running for the Saints, as Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson will probably see the majority of carries. Spiller's specialty is in the passing game, but it's still encouraging that he has seen that success on the ground versus NFC opponents. He has also played well on turf, on which the Saints will play their home games.

Saints | C.J. Spiller has done well on turf

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 16:43:40 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller has averaged 5.02 yards and 7.66 yards on 501 career attempts and 109 career receptions, respectively, when playing on turf -- the surface he'll be playing on in New Orleans.

Fantasy Tip: This is promising news for Spiller, who will play at least half of his games in 2015 on turf. Mark Ingram will see the majority of work on the ground, but Spiller will be the primary pass-catching option out of the backfield. The key for Spiller will be staying healthy. He should be drafted as a low-end RB2 in PPR scoring leagues.

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.
