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.

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.
