Fantasy Outlook 2010

It’s been said bringing world peace is easier than tackling C.J. Spiller.  Drafted by the Bills with the ninth overall pick, Spiller will be on the field right away.  With Fred Jackson as the incumbent starting RB, ESPN’s John Clayton thinks Spiller should get about 12 carries and 18 total touches per game.  This doesn’t seem to be far from the truth as coach Chan Gailey said that they will use Spiller out wide to wreak havoc on opposing defenses, not unlike how Reggie Bush is used in New Orleans.  Spiller will most likely return kicks as well.

~ Marshawn Lynch showed up to OTAs and is determined to play, so Spiller has two other backs to contend with

~ As the weather gets worse in Buffalo, the visibility will decrease thereby increasing the number of rushes

C.J. Spiller is a dominator.  There’s no two ways around it.  Last year, he was the only player in the FBS to score a touchdown in every single game.  He rolls through opposing stadiums like a tornado on a mission.  He’s so fast, agile and quick that he has astronomers concerned he will throw off the earth’s tilt.  It wouldn’t surprise us if he was the solution to global warming.  

Spiller showed flashes of his brilliance throughout college, but never put together a consistent full season until his senior year.  During that year, he ran 201 times for 1,212 yards and 12 touchdowns.  But he also showed his outstanding open-field vision and ability by catching 36 passes for 503 yards and four more touchdowns.  As if that’s not enough, during the course of the year, he set an NCAA record for seven career kickoffs returned for touchdowns.  This guy is just a menace when he gets space.

Injury Report


C.J. hasn't had any serious injuries to speak of

Spiller Added To Chiefs Backfield

Pyro's take: The Chiefs added the former Bill's big play threat that hasn't found much success in recent years. This move is likely to add depth and Spiller's spot on the roster is not guaranteed.

Fantasy Goo: Spiller is mostly a 3rd down receiving back at this point in his career. This move leads me to believe that the Chiefs are looking to pivot away from Jamaal Charles, or at the least have Spiller as an insurance policy.

Spiller a Healthy Scratch in Week #1


Pyro's take: Well, here we go again. News was positive in the preseason, it seemed like the Saints had bigger plans for Spiller this season after being largely ineffective and unused last year. Although he was not on the injury report this week and was a full go in practice, the Saints are giving Spiller a healthy scratch in Week #1

Fantasy Goo: Drew Brees is at home. In the last 5 seasons, he is the highest scoring fantasy QB when playing at home. This game is one of 3 expected to score over 50, so get yourself some Saints/Raiders action on DFS. Without Spiller, Ingram will likely get more catches out of the backfield.

New Orleans RB Situation

One of the big developments of last season was Mark Ingram emerging as a true every-down player

Pyro's take: One of the big developments of last season was Mark Ingram emerging as a true every-down player. As far as who makes the team, Ingram is the only lock. Tim Hightower seems like the best bet to back him up. It would be hard to envision Spiller not making the team, but he needs to prove he can still be productive.

Fantasy Goo: Mark Ingram had 25.03% of the Saints touches while he was on the field in 2015. As Ingram continues to become a receiving threat he will hold on to his nice draft position which is currently the 25th player selected in mocks. Last season Tim Hightower rewarded waiver wire hounds by keeping seasons alive with his surprising success with an AVG of over 20 touches per week from weeks 14-17 with 4 touchdowns. C.J. Spiller is no longer worth talking about as his career has become more of wishes than rewards. In his 6 years he has only had one solid season which was in 2012. If you have a deep roster you might want to draft Tim Hightower late or keep your waiver wire eyes open for him if Ingram gets banged up…again.

C.J.Spiller Expects To Flourish In 2016 In Saints Offense

New Orleans Saints

Pyro's take: New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller was hampered by a knee injury in 2015 and never got it going with his new team. "It played a big role, because of the style of play that I play, the cutting and stopping, I didn't have that explosion that I'm known for," Spiller said of his disappointing performance last season. Spiller believes that he can "flourish" in the Saints' offense in 2016 if he remains healthy. "This offense is built for my type of skill set. I wouldn't want to be in any other one."

Fantasy Goo: C.J. Spiller could ultimately thrive in the type of offense that the Saints run, but his durability comes into question as it has for the last few years of his career. Spiller played in 13 games for New Orleans in 2015 but only accounted for 351 total yards on 70 touches and two touchdowns, both of which were receptions out of the backfield. Spiller's role on the team remains uncertain as Tim Hightower is penciled in to be the primary handcuff to Mark Ingram. Spiller should be left off of the fantasy radar until he carves himself a more solid spot on the running back rotation. Keep in mind that Spiller's skill set could lead him to become the main receiver out of the backfield, which in previous years has been PPR gold.

GM Mickey Loomis believes injuries were to blame for C.J. Spiller's subpar season i


Pyro's take: .@Saints GM Mickey Loomis said he believes biggest problem in 2015 for @CJSPILLER was injuries. Expects a rebound in 2016. @SiriusXMNFL

Sure, thats what it is. Sean Payton stated on September 28 (just after Week 3) that Spiller was "100 percent." While the Saints can save $3.25 million by cutting Spiller, Loomis' comments suggest the team plans on keeping him.

#Saints RB C.J. Spiller played in 26 snaps on offense, 33.8 percent of total. Both numbers are season highs.


Pyro's take: Evan Woodberry via Twitter "#Saints RB C.J. Spiller played in 26 snaps on offense, 33.8 percent of total. Both numbers are season highs."

Spiller was missing in action up until Monday Night, and so were his actual numbers. He touched the ball only four times for 18 yards, including two rushes for two yards. Tim Hightower is the focal point in this offense.

C.J. Spiller played 15 snaps Week 14 against the Bucs.


Pyro's take: Katherine Terrell via Twitter "CJ Spiller played 15 snaps on offense yesterday, less than anyone else except an injured Murphy (1), Austin Johnson (1), and Kelemete (1)"

CJ Spiller got out snapped by Tim Hightower. He can be safely dropped in all leagues.

The Saints Backfield Situation, One to Avoid


Pyro's take: According to Rapoport, Hightower is the play over Spiller. However, there are multiple, mediocre options in the New Orlean's backfield. The gam,e script will likely call for Brees to put the ball in the air. Because of the questions and the revolving door in their backfield, I am not gambling on anyone unless it is a DFS play, and even then, only in GPP situations where I have multiple line-ups set.

C.J. Spiller does not know why he is getting so little work this season.


Pyro's take: Snippets from the ESPN article
"I go in when I'm told to go in. There’s nothing I can change,” Spiller said. “I know what I can present to this league. So it's the same questions, [but] there's no different answer. That’d be something, I guess for upstairs to answer, not me.

“I haven't went up there and asked for an explanation. Obviously, there has to be a reason behind it. ... But I feel good, and I stay in-tuned into the game so when I am called upon I'm ready to go out there and play.

“Obviously, you want to play more. You're a competitor, you want to be out there, but you can't play with 12 people on the field."

Spiller has 24 catches for 198 yards and two touchdowns and 22 carries for 86 yards with no TDs.

Invest in Carts Because they are in use Today


Pyro's take: Khiry Robinson is another in an unbelievably long line of injured players that have been carted off the field in Sunday's Week 8. Spiller's stock could rise. The Saints are notorious for tossing to their backs coming out of the backfield. Althought Spiller has been disappointing considering is ADP.

11/01/15, 01:15 PM CST by PyromaniacMo

CJ to Play Today

Spiller active

Pyro's take: CJ will make his debut for the Saints in week 2. I can see Breezw welcoming him to the organization by tossing him a TD as he comes out of hte backfield

Regulated if plays


Pyro's take: According to Saints beat writer Katherine Terrell via twitter "If you're worried about Spiller for fantasy purposes, I strongly think he plays. However, he could be limited to red zone work."

At this point it looks as though Spiller should only be used as a flex option if you have nobody else to fill that role.

C.J. Spilled Out for Week 1

Ian Rapoport went to twitter and stated:

"Saints RB CJ Spiller (knee) will not play in Week 1, I’m told, as he recovers from that minor knee surgery. Likely good to go after that"

Pyro's take: Mark Ingram will be carrying a full-load. Maybe even catch a couple for those PPR owners out there. Spiller being held down to only one week is a very good sign. Look for him to resume the Pierre Thomas receiver role when he returns.

09/08/15, 08:40 PM CDT by Vaaal-verde

It would be very impressive if CJ Spiller can make it all the way back from IR/recall. At this moment he is limited at practice.

Pyro's take: Dont look for much from Spiller this season, unless he gets a full-time nod. If he does, he has a great match-up against the Raiders. Stranger things have happened, so if you are in need of a running back, this may be a nice play for your team, just dont rush it and make sure he is fully recovered.

Spiller Spilled

CJ Spiller will be lost for the year after he broke his collar bone. Eric Wood stated about Spiller "He was in a lot of pain," Wood said. "I was just praying for him, telling him to stay strong. I've been there before." Fred Jackson was lost to a groin injury, just two plays before. "I don't know how it'll change moving forward," Wood said of Buffalo's backfield, "but it's never good when you lose two players of that caliber."

Pyro's take: Anthony Dixon or Bryce Brown will get an opportunity here, while both starters are out. Dixon stated "This is opportunity I've been waiting for, to get back in that workhorse role and show people what I can do," Dixon said. "I want to show people what I could do in college and high school."

Coaching Staff Not Happy

Buffalo Bills reporter Mike Rodak stated via his twitter account that "Bills OC Nate Hackett said today the coaching staff wants C.J. Spiller to 'see three, get three.' Said Spiller is trying to "do too much."

Pyro's take: This pretty much sums up why Spiller is not being used and why his production has been dropped since the new coaching staff has arrived.

The Bills are asking him to change the way he runs to fit their scheme, as opposed to changing their scheme to fit him. Spiller is not that type of player, the offensive system, needs to adjust to his skill-set, and not force him to be in a box of set-runs.

This may be the last season for CJ Spiller as a Buffalo BIll, unless the coaching staff is terminated, or comes together to inspire a change of direction for Spiller.

Spiller Over

C.J. Spiller has seen a reduction of carries over this season, Jay Skurski, writer for the Buffalo Bills, has stated that C.J. Spiller's "12 snaps were his fewest in a game dating back to 2012. He even played more in games last season with a high-ankle sprain."

Pyro's take: Spiller just has not produced. He had that one great year, two years ago, but since then has done very little. Even being moved to special teams, is an indication of his insignificance in the running game. Its Fred Jackson's team now.

Spiller on kickoffs

Head coach Doug Marrone will be using ultra-talented CJ Spiller on kickoff returns, and denied any comment that it would be too risky to have a star running back in these type of situations. “I look at it as how many guys have been injured returning the football compared to people injured with the ball being handed off to them,” said Marrone. “I don’t view it as much of a risk as some people would. I could understand why people could see that because of the distance and the way people are running down the field. But again I don’t look at it that way. As much as we can get our playmakers out there whether it be punt returns or kickoff returns we have to make sure we explore that.”

Pyro's take: CJ Spiller has been used in kickoffs in both college and the pros, so this nothing new. At Clemson, he averaged almost 28 yards a return (27.7) and had seven returns for touchdowns. In his Bills career he’s had 50 kick returns for 1,157 yards and a touchdown, a 95-yarder against New England on Sept. 26th of his rookie season (2010).

Doug Marrone on the other hand realizes he needs some kind of offense, so if it means using Spiller to return kicks, he is going to do so. This is great news for those that use a scoring system that incorporates using a player in kick returns as a roster spot, for all other owners, pray he doesnt blow out a knee returning a kick.

Spiller looking for new contract and a rebound season

The Bills now have three proven NFL running backs – Jackson, Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon – under contract for at least the next two seasons. So where does Spiller fit in that equation?

“Right now, I really haven’t given it any thought,” he said this week. “I’ve just been focusing on trying to get better at my craft. We’ve got time. Hopefully both sides will be able to get something done, and we can keep 28 and 22 together.”

A high-ankle sprain in 2013 robbed him of much of his explosiveness, resulting in significant drops in yards per carry (from 6.0 to 4.6), receiving yards (from 459 to 185) and total touchdowns (from eight to two) from 2012.

The injury, though, is fully healed.

“He doesn’t look hampered now. He looks more explosive than he did during the season last year,” Bills coach Doug Marrone said. “We just have to do a good job in the preseason with the amount of carries we give him and how much work he needs to get to get ready for the season.”

Pyro's take: Spiller is one of the bigger question marks at the running back position. He has the ability to be a top 10 back, but he made such a bad impression on fantasy owners last season that his ADP has dropped dramatically. The Bills extended the contract of the 33 year old Fred Jackson, while the 26 year old Spiller is still playing to get a new contract. C.J. could be one of this year's great values at the running back position, especially if he has that explosion back in his game.

Spiller spinning?

C.J. Spiller has stated he feels great, and there is no pain in his ankle. “I don’t feel nothing, I feel great,” said Spiller. “This is the best I’ve felt since 2012 when I had that great year. The ankle feels wonderful. I just have to keep doing what I need to do to stay healthy this whole season and try to go out there and make plays.”

Pyro's take: Spiller's ankle was the main cause for his unproductive year, even though he averaged 4.6 yards per carry. There is little doubt that he under performed last year and if it wasn't for Trent Richardson, he could have easily been the bust of the fantasy season. The other side is that he can perform at All-Pro levels in rushing and receiving, which makes him very dangerous on the field, and very explosive for your fantasy team. The negative side is his injuries, and that he still faces a never aging Fred Jackson and newly acquired Bryce Brown. Can you trust him for a great 2014 season? I say "no."
