C.J. Spiller injury update: Bills RB probable for Sunday, should be started

Rick Stewart

Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller is probable for the team's game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller is officially listed as probable for the team's matchup against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. According to the official injury report, Spiller was a full participant in practice on Friday with a quadriceps injury.

Spiller sustained the injury in a loss to the New York Jets in Week 3. He was ineffective in the first half of the game, and wasn't quite sure when the injury happened. He had one rush in the second half before exiting the game for good.

As the starter for the Bills, Spiller has had some odd games thus far. He rushed for 41 yards in Week 1 against the New England Patriots, and then broke out against the Carolina Panthers, rushing for 103 yards on fewer carries. Against the Jets, though, he only managed nine yards.

It seems likely Spiller will play and get another chance to pick up some yardage, as the Bills don't want to put too much on rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel.

Fantasy Impact: Spiller is a desirable running back in fantasy, because he does so many things for the Bills' offense. Unfortunately, that hasn't really manifested itself this season, but he'll get plenty more opportunities. Fantasy owners should continue to start Spiller without worry, as his injury is minor.
