Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller was a hot fantasy commodity entering the season, being drafted high in the first round in many league formats. Unfortunately, Spiller has failed to deliver on the hype so far. Through six games, he is rushing for just 351 yards and one touchdown on 84 carries, adding 11 catches for 40 yards. He is losing touches to veteran Fred Jackson, who is having a minor career revival at age 32.
Complicating matters is an ankle injury Spiller suffered an ankle injury in Week 4. He's trying to play through the injury and is limited in practice this week. He's expected to be active for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.
Fantasy impact: Spiller did manage to get 66 yards on 12 touches in last week's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, suggesting that his ankle is getting better. Still, he remains a massive disappointment this season and will continue to split time with Jackson. It's hard to recommend starting him this week against Miami's strong defense. Spiller is a weak RB2/flex option at the moment.
