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.

Bills | C.J. Spiller probable for Week 16

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.

Bills | C.J. Spiller not yet on roster

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 16:00:31 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (collarbone) has not yet been added to the active roster from the short-term Reserve/Injured list. The Bills must add him by Dec. 24, but they must make that move by Saturday, Dec. 20, if they want him to be eligible to play in Week 16 against the Oakland Raiders. Spiller was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, and he said he's feeling good. The team hasn't made a decision on whether he'll play against the Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills are likely waiting for another day or two to see what Spiller looks like in practice before making a decision for this weekend. Spiller is a very risky play at FantasyScore this weekend, even if he does suit up.

Bills | C.J. Spiller limited

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 11:04:53 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller could be active for Week 16 but likely would not receive a normal workload since he has missed most of the season with the shoulder injury. Spiller costs $4,000 on FantasyScore and is a risky option because of the injury, but does have a favorable matchup if he is active for the game.

Bills | C.J. Spiller to return to roster this week

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 12:15:58 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (shoulder) will reclaim a roster spot this week, according to head coach Doug Marrone. Spiller has been cleared and it will be decided if he plays based on how he practices, Marrone added.

Fantasy Tip: It's still too early to tell if Spiller will be able to play this week. It will probably be best to wait a week anyway to see how much he'll be used when he returns. In other words, it might be best to wait until next fantasy football season to start Spiller again.

Bills | C.J. Spiller on the field

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 09:30:36 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (shoulder) is participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3. Spiller is currently on the Active/Reserve/Injured list and is not eligible to play until Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller is working his way back from the injury but will not be a factor in fantasy leagues for at least another two weeks. Owners should keep him on the bench until he returns. Fred Jackson likely will receive most of the carries until Spiller is able to return. Jackson will be facing a tough Denver Broncos run defense in Week 14, which could make him a risky option on FantasyScore at $5,400.
