C.J. Spiller sees fantasy value boost with heavy workload in Week 11

Rick Stewart

C.J. Spiller received 25 touches against the Dolphins on Thursday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

With Fred Jackson out after suffering a concussion last week, C.J. Spiller handled the majority of the work in the Bills backfield on Thursday night. He carried the ball 22 times for 91 yards against the Dolphins, also adding three receptions for 39 yards to his stat line.

Spiller was by far the most explosive player on the field, and made a strong case for more touches going forward.

Fantasy Impact: Everyone seems to be calling for Spiller to get more involved in the Bills offense these days. Jackson's absence was a huge benefit to his fantasy value, and even though he didn't score a touchdown, he still averaged 5.2 yards per touch. That mark is actually well below his season average somehow.

Hopefully Chan Gailey realizes he needs to keep feeding Spiller the ball. He'll have an easier matchup next week against the Colts defense, but Jackson could be back in the mix.
