Eagles | C.J. Spiller may be on Philly's radar

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 16:43:07 -0800

Buffalo Bills impending free-agent RB C.J. Spiller may be on the Philadelphia Eagles' radar in free agency, according to source. However, Spiller won't be Eagles head coach Chip Kelly's highest priority.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller should carry more fantasy football value in point-per-reception leagues, and it'll be interesting to see where he lands. A move to Philadelphia would be intriguing for a number of reasons, mainly giving him upside in Kelly's dynamic offense. However, he'd be sharing touches with Darren Sproles and Chris Polk, too.

Bills | C.J. Spiller won't return to Buffalo

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 16:28:02 -0800

Buffalo Bills impending free-agent RB C.J. Spiller said Tuesday, March 3, that the Bills called him and thanked him for his services. In summary, Spiller won't be coming back to the Bills next season.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller still has some gas left in the tank, so it will be interesting to see where he lands. Wherever he goes, he'll probably still be splitting time in the backfield, but should have more value in point-per-reception leagues.

Jets | C.J. Spiller fond of Jets

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 15:17:59 -0800

Buffalo Bills impending free-agent RB C.J. Spiller made it very clear that he's a fan of Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey. Gailey coached Spiller from 2010 to 2012 with the Bills. "His offense is going to be very creative," Spiller said. "He's going put his players in the best situations to win matchups. Just a humble guy. First class. Goes about his business the right way. He's going to treat his men like men." The Jets have a hole at running back with RBs Chris Johnson and Bilal Powell poised to leave.

Fantasy Tip: A reunion with Gailey seems like the perfect fit for Spiller. If it indeed happens, he'll make for an intriguing back to complement with Chris Ivory's downhill running style. Spiller could easily be a sleeper running back in PPR leagues with any organization that he lands with, but the Jets would present him with a great opportunity at a bounce-back season.

Jets | C.J. Spiller an option for Jets?

Fri, 16 Jan 2015 16:08:23 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller, who will be a free agent this offseason, could be eyeing a move to the New York Jets, where he could be reunited with his former offensive coordinator in Chan Gailey. Spiller could be targeted if Gailey gets the job in New York after Spiller had 1,703 total yards, eight touchdowns and 43 catches in 2012 with Gailey. "There is that familiarity between me and him in that offense," Spiller said. "So that would be a perfect match. Who knows what can happen, but I'd be foolish not to have those guys on my list. I had my best years in the league with Chan. So it'd be dumb not to give it serious thought."

Fantasy Tip: Spiller would surely gain some fantasy football appeal back if he reconnects with Gailey in New York next season. Spiller's 2014 season was a disappointment mainly because of injury, but if he can stay healthy next year with a new team, he could be a nice value pick in drafts, especially in PPR leagues.

Bills | Buffalo would like C.J. Spiller back

Thu, 15 Jan 2015 12:31:42 -0800

Buffalo Bills impending free-agent RB C.J. Spiller is a player the Bills will try to re-sign this offseason, according to general manager Doug Whaley.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller's fantasy value will be determined by which team he will sign with this offseason. Spiller probably would have a solid role in the offense if he re-signs with the team but also has an injury history and would be splitting time with Jackson. Spiller should be considered a flex option in drafts next season if he returns to Buffalo.

Bills | C.J. Spiller happy about Rex Ryan hire

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 13:34:41 -0800

Buffalo Bills impending free-agent RB C.J. Spiller said he likes the team's hiring of head coach Rex Ryan, because Ryan likes to run the ball and have a physical offense.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller will be a free agent this season, so there is a chance he may not play for the Bills in 2015. Spiller's fantasy value will depend on which team he signs with this offseason. Owners should consider Spiller as depth at running back for their teams next season for now.

Bills | C.J. Spiller unlikely to return in 2015?

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 17:21:41 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller has just a 30% chance to re-sign with the team as an unrestricted free agent during the offseason, according to Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News. "The writing was on the wall for Spiller the moment the Bills traded for running back Bryce Brown in May, and nothing that has happened this season makes it any more likely the team's 2010 first-round pick would return for a sixth season," Skurski wrote.

Fantasy Tip: If Spiller does sign elsewhere in the offseason, Brown becomes a nice upside pick to target in drafts. Fred Jackson is still under contract for another year, but he is already on the older end of the spectrum when it comes to running backs.

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 09:47:52 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (shoulder) has been added to the active roster and is probable for Week 16 against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: It's a late development this week for fantasy football players at FantasyScore, but Spiller is definitely a cheap option worth considering against the Oakland Raiders, who have struggled against running backs. However, know that Spiller is a risk, since his touches may be limited in his first game back.
