As my fantasy take describes, touches aren't the problem with Spiller, it comes down to quality touches mixed with good health. His yards per carrry and per catch were down significantly last year.

Who sees Spiller staying healthy and getting back to his 5+ yards per carry and 10ish yards per catch averages?

They said that last year after his breakout year when F. Jackson was injured. I got burned by him once, not again. As long as there is a hint of a RBBC in Buffalo, I'm going to pass on him.

Coach said he was injured the entire year though. I would love to see what this guy could do if he stayed healthy.

Spiller needs to be in an RBBC. He just isn't an everydown back that can carry the load through the season. Still dangerous for PPR.

Where do you guys think he should be drafted? I am still mulling it over. Round 3 seems high to me. Think 4th would be a really good value, considering he would probably be your RB2.

Nic, I agree, CJ should be RBBC and not the lead back! 2yrs ago he was great as a RB3 or 4, so last year his value jumped to RB1 or high RB2 status. He is more change of pace then starter(wasn't even the starter at Clemson). His 4 fumbles concern me, it was his ankle that bothered him not his arms. Think he was trying to do too much! His targets receptions where down last year and that could be because Manuel likes to scramble and looks downfield more, and the dump off RB has to come back and block? At this point without knowing the Bills plan and your draft strategy and league settings, I would have to say that there is more value to be had in the 3rd and 4th rounds.
