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

Dominator

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

Green

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

Limited

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."

Spiller disagrees with Marrone about his injury

For the second year in a row, C.J. Spiller disagrees with
his coach regarding the running back's body.

Last season, Spiller took exception with Chan Gailey's
opinion that Spiller got "winded" and needed to be removed from
games.

Now Spiller disagrees with Bills coach Doug Marrone.

Marrone said this afternoon Spiller's sprained ankle "probably is not as well" than at this time last week and indicated Spiller might be well-served
to rest Sunday rather than play against the New Orleans Saints in the Superdome.

Pyro's take: This is never a good sign when a star player is not on the same page as his head coach. It will be interesting to see how this progresses throughout the week, but it is a cause for concern. If Spiller does play, Marrone could still limit his touches on Sunday. Stay tuned.

Spiller is questionable, but should play

C.J. Spiller (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 6 versus Cincinnati.

Spiller was spotted with a bit of a limp Wednesday, but he's been practicing. Coach Doug Marrone said Spiller has been "progressing much better."

Pyro's take: This is a tough matchup for Spiller and it may not be a good fantasy week for him. The Bills are going to have to lean on the running game with Thaddius Lewis starting at quarterback, but Cincinnati is going stack the box and force the Lewis to beat them.

C.J. Spiller has a sprained ankle, but expects to play Thursday

Despite a sprained ankle, Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller will play Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns, a league source said.

Spiller, who was injured during Sunday's win over the Baltimore Ravens, said his ankle was less swollen than expected Monday and that his availability would be a game-time decision.

"I can't walk normally," he said. "It's a little sore. [But] it wasn't as swollen as we thought it was going to be. That's a good thing."

Pyro's take: Spiller has had a real tough season so far, and the news that he has a sprained ankle means the good times keep rolling. Not only is this another concern, but the fact that the Bills have a Thursday game this week means that Spiller will most likely be limited and not have his full explosion factor for Thursday night against the Browns. If you have no better option you will be starting him, just keep your fingers crossed he does not re-aggravate the injury.

C.J. Spiller a full go for Sunday

A forgettable week that began with a terrible performance, quad injury and departure from the Week 3 game against the New York Jets has brightened for Bills featured back C.J. Spiller. He has practiced in full since Wednesday and is listed as probable for Sunday against Baltimore.

Pyro's take: C.J. Spiller has been practicing all week and is looking forward to having a good game after mustering only 10 yards on 9 carries. All it takes is one play for this guy to be the Thriller and make an impact on your fantasy week. Don't jump ship, cause this could be the week.

C.J. Spiller has a thigh injury

Running back C.J. Spiller expects to be back in action when the Buffalo Bills host the Ravens in Week 4. Spiller was limited to nine carries for just nine yards in Sunday's loss to the Jets, a game in which he suffered what was first described as a knee injury. ESPN reported Monday that it's Spiller's thigh that's ailing, but regardless, the team also expects him to suit up against Baltimore.

"I'm a little sore, but it shouldn’t be nothing that'll keep me out this week," Spiller said Monday, per the Bills' official website. "I should be feeling better, day by day, but just taking it slow. Just a little sore right now."

Pyro's take: Wow this is great news and a tragedy averted with all the initial speculation that it was a knee injury for Spiller. Spiller has been anything but a Thriller this year as he has dissappointed through the first 3 weeks of the season. That being said, he joins a long list of underperforming running backs this season. C.J. still has that amazing game breaking potential and if he is going to play next week you need to start him. He will be the Thriller at some point and you don't want him to be on your bench when that happens.

CJ Spiller will be fine, he just needs to relax

Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller said he displayed some impatience in his running style in Sunday’s loss to New England.

“I kind of went back to some of my old stuff,” Spiller said, referring to his rookie season. “That was really the biggest thing when I said I was disappointed. I went back to some of my old habits. I wasn’t letting the offensive line do their job. I was rushing stuff."

Spiller rushed 17 times for 41 yards, a 2.4-yard average. Eleven of his runs were for 2 or fewer yards.

“Just wanting to go out there and – I don’t want to say prove anything – but try to make too many plays,” Spiller said. “I was forcing it instead of just letting that big play come. I was looking for that big play each time, and it hurt us, and it hurt me. … I have to start taking what they give me.”

Pyro's take: This is a good news for Spiller owners who spent an early pick to get him. Spiller must have know where he was being selected in drafts and put a bit too much pressure on himself in week 1. Now let me dispel 2 myths.

Fred Jackson is not going to take the starting job away from Spiller and Spiller is not going to have 300 carries. Spiller is one of the most dynamic running backs in the game, and the Bills coaching staff knows this. Spiller only had 207 carries last season and finished with 1,244 yards. He is going to see around 25 carries this year and he is going to be a top fantasy producing running back.

New uptempo offense will make Spilla' a thrilla'

New Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett ran almost 80 plays a game at Syracuse last season, and now that uptempo offense will be the way of the Bills offense.

Considering the fact that the Buffalo Bills were 28th in the league in offensive plays per game, this will only benefit their best offensive player in C.J Spiller in fantasy this season.

Pyro's take: With more offensive plays and a quick hit offense in place, Spiller's touches will skyrocket with more offensive opportunities. There is talk of 2,000 yards for C.J., and his skillset is the type that could pull of the feat if everything aligns.

Spiller had 207 carries last season, yet had 1,244 yards - that's 6 yards a carry. Give him 350 plus carries and he keeps it anywhere near that average and he's over the 2K mark.

Spiller is the 3rd ranked RB in the v04 of my TIERS, and his new staff, his explosion factor, the increase in touches and his yards per carry capability is the reason why.
