|C.J. Spiller looking at strong matchup Week 15 |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9:44 am ET) Bills running back C.J. Spiller is looking at a strong matchup Week 15 against the Jaguars.
Jacksonville has had a tough time stopping opposing rushers, allowing them to go for 18.08 Fantasy points per game. Through 13 games, the team has allowed 16 rushing touchdowns. Opposing running back have also averaged 102.92 yards per game against Jacksonville.
Spiller has been a Fantasy disappointment this season, but he's starting to get more work than Fred Jackson. Over the past three games, Spiller has 11 more carries than Jackson. The problem is, Spiller has done nothing with those carries in two games. He's had trouble breaking off big plays this season, while Jackson has been more of a consistent ball-carrier. Spiller remains a big risk, but the matchup is favorable Week 15.

(12/8/13) Bills running back C.J. Spiller nearly had a big game in Week 14 against the Buccaneers, but one holding penalty erased a game-changing play in a 27-6 loss.
Spiller finished the game with a paltry 48 yards of total offense, but could have easily topped 100 if not for one untimely penalty. Spiller caught a pass in the fourth quarter and easily outran the Buccaneers defense for an 83-yard score, but the gain was called back thanks to a holding penalty behind the play.
Spiller was rewarded with a 26-yard reception on the play, his lone reception of the game. He added just 22 yards on a team-high 11 carries.
Spiller's role in Week 14 was his smallest in three games, but that could have been a result of the Bills playing from behind for much of the game. He will look for more success in Week 15, when the Bills take on the Jaguars.

(12/4/13) Perhaps it was better late than never, but Bills running back C.J. Spiller had a monster game coming out of the bye Week 13 vs. Atlanta. He totaled 149 rushing yards and one touchdown, which was a performance Fantasy owners expected would happen more often than not in 2013.
Spiller has been banged up and sharing reps with Fred Jackson, which has hurt his production, but maybe it's time to move him back up the Fantasy rankings as he is coming off his best performance of the season Sunday.
The Bills' next opponent is Tampa Bay Week 14. The Bucs aren't the easiest matchup for opposing running backs, who average just 13.2 Fantasy points per week against Tampa Bay, which is the sixth-lowest average. However, the number is weighed down by Tampa Bay allowing just five touchdowns (two rushing) to running backs.
Perhaps the good news for Spiller is that running backs have averaged 101 rushing yards the last five games against Tampa, so there is a good chance Spiller might be able to keep the momentum going Week 14. Spiller hasn't been a very reliable Fantasy option this season, but he's worth a look as a No. 2 Fantasy running back.

(12/1/13) Bills running back C.J. Spiller broke out Week 13 against the Falcons.

He also managed to flash some big-play ability, breaking off runs of 36 and 77 yards during the game. Spiller also caught two passes for 8 yards. Spiller received more carries and yardage then Fred Jackson, but Jackson found the end zone twice.
Spiller will take on the Buccaneers Week 14.

(11/27/13) Bills running back C.J. Spiller could be in for a big day against the Falcons Week 13.
Atlanta has had a difficult time with running backs, allowing them to average 18.36 Fantasy points per game. In 11 games, Atlanta has allowed eight rushing touchdowns. They've been able to limit some yardage, though, allowing just three 100 yard rushers. The past two weeks have been rough, as Marshawn Lynch and Bobby Rainey have both had huge games against the Falcons.
Though Fred Jackson has been the more consistent player this season, Spiller remains the high-upside play. Jackson does not have a single 100 yard game this year, while Spiller has two. Lately, though, Spiller has been playing second fiddle to Jackson in the rushing game. Jackson is probably the bigger threat to score, but Spiller's big play ability makes him tempting despite a poor season.

Let's call Tampa Bay linebacker Lavonte David 'Baby Brooks,' because like the likely Hall of Famer he is an undersized run-and-chase linebacker worthy of Defensive Player of the Year consideration.

Instant reactions from Week 14
Three big-time injuries in Week 14 may derail title hopes for many owners. Our Jamey Eisenberg shares his observations from a memorable Sunday of action.
|C.J. Spiller has the ability to be the No. 1 running back in Fantasy leagues in 2013. This should be his first year as a full-time starter. Fred Jackson is expected to poach carries, but Spiller will be given a heavy workload. He took on a lot of work in 2012 with Jackson dealing with a knee injury and set career highs in carries (207), rushing yards (1,244), touchdowns (six), catches (43) and receiving yards (459), and that was in just nine starts. Spiller averaged 6.0 yards per carry, so imagine what he could do with close to 300 total touches. He has 2,000 total-yard potential with double digits in touchdowns, and we see Spiller as a top 10 overall pick with a chance to be a top-5 selection. This is going to be a big year for Spiller.
