C.J. Spiller totals 129 yards versus Panthers, reaffirms fantasy owners' faith as a top option

Rick Stewart

The Bills feature back logged his first 100-yard game on the ground this season, though he had a touchdown vultured in the same game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Bills running back C.J. Spiller amassed 129 total yards, including 103 on the ground in the team's thrilling 24-23 win over the Panthers.

Spiller made his fantasy owners nervous after posting a modest point total for most of the game despite being very involved in the offense. But in the fourth quarter, Spiller ripped off a 46-yard run to bolster his point totals. The Bills rushed for one touchdown in the game, but Fred Jackson ran it in from four yards out, although Spiller remained involved in goal-line and short-yardage situations.

Fantasy Spin: A collective sigh of relief from Spiller's owners could have been heard from anywhere, as the consensus first-round fantasy running back appeared poised for another disappointing week. But because of Spiller's dynamic running ability, he will remain a good bet to break a long one in any given week, and that's just what he did to save his point total. As long as he continues to get his reps, he remains a confident start at the RB1 slot versus the Jets in Week 3.
