C.J. Spiller adds huge receiving score to boost fantasy value

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

C.J. Spiller broke off a 66-yard score in Week 17 to pad his stats. We break down the fantasy implications.

C.J. Spiller had a tough day on the ground against the Jets in Week 17. He rushed for just 59 yards on 24 carries, averaging only 2.5 yards per rush.

Fortunately he broke loose for a 66-yard receiving touchdown in the second quarter, boosting his overall stat line on the afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: It seems like Spiller is due for an obligatory huge play every game. He's been hindered by Chan Gailey and the timeshare with Fred Jackson this season, but Spiller still managed to post several career-highs.

It's tough to tell how high his value will be in 2013 before we know what will happen with Gailey, or Jackson for that matter. Spiller easily possesses the potential to be a top fantasy running back if he's given a sizable workload.
