Bills | C.J. Spiller says ankle feels good

Wed, 26 Mar 2014 12:20:21 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (ankle) said his ankle has responded well since the offseason began and has been able to plant his foot and make cuts. Spiller dealt with a high ankle sprain during most of the 2013 season.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller appears to be on track to be healthy for next season. Owners should consider Spiller as a starting fantasy running back in 2014 even though he splits carries with Fred Jackson.

Bills | C.J. Spiller confident in offensive role

Wed, 01 Jan 2014 10:53:19 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller said he is confident in his role in the offense next season even though he struggled with an ankle injury this season. "I don't have any concerns or any doubts what my role will be," Spiller said. "I think we just had an obstacle in the road when I got injured in Week 4. It kind of hindered some of the things that we were able to do with me. When you keep coming in and out of games, it's hard to really get a guy going like that."

Bills | C.J. Spiller unlikely to be used at wideout

Fri, 15 Nov 2013 10:43:42 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller is unlikely to be used as a wide receiver in Week 11 against the New York Jets with both WRs Stevie Johnson (groin) and Robert Woods (ankle) out. "Well I think in the backfield it's much easier to hand him the football than it is to throw him the football, especially vertically down the field. Intermediate throws I have no problem, (or) screens, intermediate routes, but it's really difficult to push that ball downfield to running backs at any position," head coach Doug Marrone said. Spiller had 11 touches (eight carries, three catches) in Week 10. Marrone plans to use multiple tight end sets with the receiving game hurting.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller may be targeted a little more than usual on passes coming out of the backfield as a result. However, the Jets run-stopping unit has been solid all year, so Spiller is a rather weak play. Consider him an RB3 or flex.
