Bills' running game sputters vs. Raiders in Week 16


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) The Bills managed just 13 yards on 13 carries as a team in Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Raiders in Week 16, with running back Fred Jackson leading the team with 10 yards on six carries.

It was an absolutely abysmal game from the Bills' rushing attack with the team's season on the line. Jackson did serve as the team's leading receiver, catching nine passes on 12 targets for 93 yards, giving him his first game with more than 100 yards from scrimmage since Week 5. Anthony Dixon rushed for seven yards on three carries.

C.J. Spiller returned from a stay on injured reserve but struggled mightily in his limited playing time. He lost four yards on four carries and added four receptions for 14 yards, putting the ball on the turf once but recovering his own fumble.

The Bills head to New England for the regular-season finale next Sunday.

Bills' C.J. Spiller able to practice on Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller was able to put in limited practice on Wednesday.

Spiller has been medically cleared for contact, but has yet to be added to the team's 53-man roster. Spiller is attempting to come back from a broken collarbone, and said the team will likely make a decision on his status later in the week. "We’ll see how I feel [Thursday] when I come in," Spiller said. "If it is we’ll keep plugging away and I’m pretty sure they’ll consult with me and see how I feel and we’ll make a decision."

For what it's worth, the team has already cleared a roster spot for Spiller, releasing fullback Frank Summers. Head coach Doug Marrone admitted Spiller looked pretty good in practice as well. "I’m not going to sit up here and see he didn’t look good," Marrone said "He looked good."


Bills running back C.J. Spiller is cleared to return


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller has been cleared to return to game action and will be added to the active roster, coach Doug Marrone indicated.

Marrone added whether Spiller is ready to play in Week 16’s game at Oakland will depend on how he performs in practice this week.

Tuesday is the first day Spiller is eligible to return to the active roster. Spiller has been out since breaking his collarbone Oct. 19.


Spiller back at practice Wednesday, can't be activated until Dec. 16


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller returned to practice on Wednesday, starting a practice window in which he can work with coaches and teammates and not be counted toward the active roster. 

He still cannot be activated until Dec. 16 and would be eligible for the two remaining games on the Bills regular season schedule against the Raiders and Patriots. 

Spiller, who is averaging 4.2 yards per carry, injured his shoulder Week 7 against the Vikings.


Bills coach Marrone won't confirm if C.J. Spiller will practice Wednesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Bills coach Doug Marrone told reporters running back C.J. Spiller is making progress in his recovery from a shoulder injury, but would not reveal if his running back would return to the practice field on Wednesday, per the team's official website.

Spiller suffered the injury Week 7 against Minnesota, which caused him to land on the short-term injured reserve list.

"We're hoping to see C.J. to start coming back," said Marrone. "That designation is coming up."


Taking a look at the waiver wire for running backs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With a slew of running backs injured or on bye in Week 8, the waiver-wire is going to be a feeding frenzy this week. In his weekly waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg, tabs Bills back Bryce Brown (4 percent ownership) as the must-add option.

Brown is set to see a larger role in the wake of injuries to C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who can be freely dropped at this point. The Rams' Tre Mason (17 percent), the Jaguars' Denard Robinson (5 percent), the Saints' Travaris Cadet (4 percent) and the Panthers' Jonathan Stewart (47 percent) round out the rest of the top-five for the running back priority list. 


Bills put C.J. Spiller on short-term IR


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) The Bills placed running back C.J. Spiller on injured reserve/designated for return, meaning he's eligible to return Week 16 at Oakland. Spiller had surgery Monday to fix the broken collarbone he suffered Sunday against the Vikings.

Bills RB C.J. Spiller undergoes surgery to repair clavicle


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller underwent surgery to repair a broken clavicle on Monday, a procedure that will likely end his season. However, coach Doug Marrone would not provide an update on his condition moving forward, per the team's official website.

"We'll wait and see what the doctor says," Marrone said.

Spiller rushed for 287 yards on 69 attempts this season before going down with the injury in Week 7. With Fred Jackson also sidelined with a groin injury, the team will likely turn to Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown for the majority of the carries against the Jets Week 8.


Season-ending IR awaits Bills RB C.J. Spiller


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Bills featured back C.J. Spiller will have surgery on his broken collarbone Monday, per CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

La Canfora adds that the injury, which will likely land him on season-ending injured reserve, is quite ill-timed for Spiller, who was hoping to negotiate a contract extension to remain in Buffalo. A trade might also have been in order.


Bills RB Spiller could be out for year with broken collarbone


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller will be sidelined for an extended period of time with the broken collarbone he sustained in the Sunday game against Minnesota, per CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, who is further speculating that he could be done for the year.

The injury is more concerning due to the groin injury suffered by Buffalo backfield mate Fred Jackson.


Diagnosis shows broken collarbone for Bills RB C.J. Spiller


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The initial diagnosis on Bills running back C.J. Spiller is a broken collarbone. 

Spiller was carted off the field in the first half of the Sunday game against Minnesota. He sustained his injury at the end of a 52-yard run that marked his first attempt.


Bills RB C.J. Spiller exits game with apparent shoulder injury


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller was carted off the field in Sunday's Week 7 matchup with the Vikings due to an apparent shoulder injury. He was quickly ruled out for the day and will undergo tests to determine the extent of the injury.

Spiller broke off a 52-yard gain on his first carry of the day but suffered the injury at the end of the play. He's the second Buffalo running back carted off the field in the first half after Fred Jackson (groin) went down earlier in the day. The Bills are down to Anthony Dixon and Frank Summers at running back.


C.J. Spiller unlikely to take advantage of solid matchup


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller played just 12 of the team's 69 offensive snaps in Week 6, and his role makes it awfully hard for Fantasy owners to rely on him moving forward.

Spiller carried the ball a team-low six times in Week 6, after totaling at least 13 touches in each of the first five games. His dwindling role comes at a bad time, as Fantasy owners certainly would like to see Spiller get a chance to star against a Vikings defense that has completely fallen apart against opposing running backs in recent weeks.

The Vikings have allowing 30 Fantasy points to opposing backs in each of their last three games, but it is not clear if Spiller will get the chance to take advantage of that. He has failed to average more than 4.0 yards per carry in five of six games, and is tough to rely on in any Fantasy league at this point, even against a strong matchup. 


Bills RB C.J. Spiller held to six touches Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller totaled just six touches during a 37-22 loss Week 6 vs. New England. Spiller rushed for 19 yards on six carries, while being targeted once and recording no receptions.

The six rushes were the first time Spiller managed less than 10 carries in a game this season. His longest rush Sunday went for 12 yards and he was also charged with a fumble.

The Bills are back in action Week 7 vs. Minnesota.


Either Bills RB would be a good sleeper


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/9/2014) Bills running back Fred Jackson thought he'd be OK after walking gingerly off the field Week 5 at Detroit and was able to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday, which makes him not such a long shot to play Week 6 against New England.

You should hope he's available for that matchup. The Patriots rank 17th against the run, allowing 119.6 yards per game and, better yet, have given up the sixth-most Fantasy points per game to running backs.

Of course, healthy or not, Jackson will split carries with C.J. Spiller, who himself is a sleeper if Jackson misses the game, but Jackson has been so good catching the ball out of the backfield, averaging 7.0 catches for 62.7 yards in his last three games, that he's clearly the preferred option of the two.

If Jackson is active, you'll definitely want to start him in Fantasy. Spiller is more of a low-end play unless Jackson is out.


C.J. Spiller not only reason to monitor Fred Jackson injury


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) The sight of Bills running back Fred Jackson walking gingerly off the field in the fourth quarter Week 5 at Detroit may have had some Fantasy owners salivating over C.J. Spiller. But the way Jackson has performed this season, his loss would be nothing to celebrate.

Particularly in points-per-reception leagues, Jackson has become the type of player you start every week. His seven catches against the Lions gave him three straight games with six or more. And though he hasn't run the ball quite as often as Spiller, he's been better at it, averaging 4.7 yards per carry to Spiller's 3.5.

A lot of good Spiller would have done without Jackson in Week 5. He had 8 yards 10 carries, none of which went for more than 2 yards.

Obviously, if you own Spiller and not Jackson, you can't help but root for more playing time for Spiller, but owners of both players should probably be hoping Jackson's injury is as minor as he let on after the game.


C.J. Spiller struggles in Week 5 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller managed just eight yards on 10 carries Sunday while adding 25 yards on three receptions in his team's 17-14 win over the Lions in Week 5.

Spiller found no running room, managing a long of two yards on the day. He was benched for a large portion of the game, not touching the ball for nearly 25 minutes of game time in the second and third quarter. Running mate Fred Jackson averaged 4.9 yards on his 10 carries but was banged up late in the game. Spiller has gained 215 rushing yards on 62 attempts while adding 106 yards on 12 receptions and scoring just once. The 3-2 Bills host the Patriots in Week 6.


Time share, touch matchup, makes Bills' backs tough to rely on


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Through four games, both C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson rank in the top-22 among running backs in Fantasy scoring, as the Bills' timeshare has worked out nicely for both players. However, they might not find much success in Week 5, with the tough Lions defense on the way.

The Lions have done a solid job against opposing running backs, limiting them to just 3.4 yards per carry. They rank 10th in Fantasy points allowed, at 14.0 per game, which won't leave much for Spiller and Jackson to share. No running back tandem has seen both players reach double figures against the Lions either, though the Jets came close, thanks to Chris Johnson's late touchdown run in Week 4.

The Lions have been one of the best teams against the run over the last few years, so we shouldn't be surprised that they have maintained that through the quarter mark of the season. With so few teams on bye, you should have better options, so steer clear of this backfield tandem for Week 5. 


C.J. Spiller totals 84 yards in Week 4 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller rushed for 60 yards on 15 carries and added 24 yards on three receptions in his team's 23-17 loss to the Texans in Week 4.

Spiller out-touched running mate Fred Jackson 18-13 in the game, though he more than doubled his carries while Jackson proved to be more of a weapon in the passing attack. Spiller did have a fumble near midfield that was recovered by the offense. He hasn't scored on offense since Week 1, while Sunday's 84 yards represents a season high. Spiller will be looking for a breakout performance in Week 5 when the Bills travel to Detroit.


Keith Rivers joins EJ Manuel, other probables as active in Week 4


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Several Bills skill position players are active for Week 4's matchup with the Texans after being listed as probable to play, including quarterback EJ Manuel (abdomen), running back C.J. Spiller (chest) and wide receivers Sammy Watkins (ribs) and Robert Woods (ankle).

Defensive backs Ron Brooks (illness) and Da'Norris Searcy (ankle) are also active after being listed as probable on the final injury report. Linebacker Keith Rivers (groin) is active after being listed as doubtful to play. The linebacker has been sidelined since Week 1.

Also probable are cornerback Ron Brooks (illness), guard Chris Williams (back) and safety Da'Norris Searcy (ankle). Wide receiver Marcus Easley (knee) and linebacker Randell Johnson (knee) have both been ruled out while wideout Marquise Goodwin (concussion) is doubtful.
