C.J. Spiller, Fred Jackson continue limiting fantasy value for each other

Bob Levey

C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are still splitting the workload in Buffalo. We break down the fantasy implications.

C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson received the exact same numbers of touches in Week 9 against the Texans. Spiller carried the ball six times for 39 yards and caught five passes for 63 yards on Sunday, while Jackson tallied up 21 yards on six carries and 14 yards on five receptions.

While Spiller was clearly the more productive back, the Bills are still committed to giving both players an even workload.

Fantasy Impact: If Spiller was starting on this team alone, he would easily be a top fantasy back. Jackson has been a solid value as well, but Spiller possesses more explosive ability at his younger age.

The Bills likely will stick with both backs in the current timeshare, so there's not much owners can do. Both have decent value next week against the Patriots in a game that will likely be high-scoring yet again.
