C.J. Spiller leaves fantasy owners disappointed yet again

Kevin Hoffman-US PRESSWIRE

The Bills running back couldn't get anything going against Miami. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller provided fantasy owners with another dud rushing six times for 11 yards and no touchdowns. He also managed to catch the ball three times for negative four yards. Spiller's longest run of the day also went for 11 yards and he could not pick up a single yard on any of his other five carries.

Fantasy impact: It is safe to say that C.J. Spiller has been a tremendous letdown for fantasy owners. With his top-five ADP, Spiller has only 360 yards rushing and one touchdown through seven games. He is averaging about 13 carries per game with isn't the heaviest workload. However, the opportunities for him to produce have been there and he simply can not take advantage of any of them.

If you can find a way to get decent value for Spiller via trade, that might be the best move for fantasy owners. Since that isn't likely the case for most, owners are forced to stick with the former first-round pick in the hopes that his tremendous athleticism and potential finally kick in. Jackson is the stronger play of the two backs and Spiller is a low-end RB2.
