Saints | C.J. Spiller done in New Orleans?

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 09:12:11 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller had a career-low 36 carries for 112 yards and 34 catches for 239 yards and two touchdowns in 13 games this year for the Saints, and he lacked burst in the open field. He signed a four-year, $16 million deal with $9 million guaranteed last offseason, and the Saints could save $3.25 million against the salary cap by cutting him before June 1.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller was a fantasy draft darling this fall, but he never panned out in the Saints offense and never seemed to be in the good graces of Sean Payton. A lot will depend on whether the New Orleans coaching staff remains intact, but Spiller could benefit from a change of scenery. He'll be dirt-cheap in drafts next year and is worth a late-round flier in point-per-reception formats.

Saints | C.J. Spiller placed on IR

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 14:37:05 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller (head) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: The dismal year for Spiller has finally come to an end. Tim Hightower ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) and Travaris Cadet ($2,100, 4.2%) both have a great matchup against the Atlanta Falcons this week. Cadet is a nice PPR sleeper on FantasyScore, especially at his current price.

Saints | C.J. Spiller inactive

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 12:03:05 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller has been declared inactive for the Week 16 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Tim Hightower ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should receive most of the snaps at running back this week and will be involved in the running and passing game. Hightower has played well over the last two games and could be a cheaper running back for owners on FantasyScore.

Saints | C.J. Spiller taken to locker room

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 18:25:44 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller (head) went to the locker room in the first half of the Week 15 game against the Detroit Lions due to a possible head injury and concussion evaluation.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller likely will not be back after helmet-to-helmet contact. He doesn't see as many touches as fantasy owners would like anyway, even with Mark Ingram out of the picture.

Saints | Another quiet game for C.J. Spiller

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 17:19:40 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller had three carries for two yards and three catches for seven yards in a 24-17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Even with Mark Ingram out of action, Spiller remained an afterthought in the offense. There is no reason to consider Spiller at FantasyScore at this point.

Saints | Tim Hightower to be No. 1 back

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 08:02:25 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower is expected to receive the bulk of the carries for the team going forward, with RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) on injured reserve, because of their similar running styles. RB C.J. Spiller's role appears unlikely to change.

Fantasy Tip: The 29-year-old Hightower ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) was signed by the Saints last month and hadn't played in the NFL since 2011 prior to that. He has 12 carries for 48 yards and could be a solid pickup as a flex player for deeper fantasy leagues down the stretch.

Saints | More touches for C.J. Spiller, Tim Hightower?

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 11:35:05 -0800

New Orleans Saints RBs C.J. Spiller and Tim Hightower could be in line for more snaps if RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) is out for the season. Spiller is averaging just 13.5 snaps and 5.5 touches per game with the Saints this year for 108 rushing yards, 216 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Spiller has just four touches in the last two games.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has become a fantasy afterthought with the Saints this year after being a popular sleeper pick in the preseason. He would still be worth adding if he's available, but Tim Hightower ($2,000) better fits the role Ingram would leave behind, especially in standard scoring leagues.
