2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Spiller spent the first year and a half of his career making Bills management look like fools for using the 9th pick in the 2010 rookie draft to acquire him. However, Fred Jacksonís season-ending leg injury thrust Spiller into the starting lineup and he played far better than anyone could have anticipated over the balance of the season. After a poor performance in his first game as a starter, Spiller accumulated 446 yards rushing, 187 receiving yards and scored five touchdowns over his last six games, hitting double-digit fantasy points four times. That means Spiller has solidified his standing as the Bills running back of the future. What it doesnít mean is that he has earned a huge role in 2012. Jackson was a beast when healthy in 2011 and signed a two-year contract extension in the offseason. The expectation is that he will get the majority of the touches in the Bills backfield but that Spillerís use wonít be as minimal as it was when Jackson was healthy. Consider Spiller a high-end RB4 with upside.

News From The Past 90 Days
Spiller to average 20 touches?     -- Mon Jul 14 4:20 pm --

Bills less concerned about RB depth in 2014
The bell cow in this quartet, however, is still expected to be C.J. Spiller. After spending a year working with Spiller and understanding where he really excels and how diversified his game can be, OC Nathaniel Hackett is confident he can maximize Spillerís talents for the offense. And now with an extra pair of backs (as well as Fred Jackson) he can freely maneuver Spiller to any position on the field. If the offense is operating at peak efficiency, Spiller is likely to touch the ball 20 times a game, they just wonít all be carries out of the backfield. (BuffaloBills.com)

FF Today's Take: Hackett famously claimed that Spiller would get the ball "until he throws up" last season, so skepticism is natural. However, the additions of Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon may allow Hackett to use Spiller liberally in his up-tempo attack, especially now that his ankle is no longer an issue. It is unlikely Spiller will average 20 touches per game in such a deep backfield, but he should have no problems leading the group by a wide margin if he can stay healthy.
Bryce Brown adds depth to Bills backfield     -- Sun May 11 7:00 am --

Spiller and Jackson heading into contract years
The Philadelphia Eagles traded running back Bryce Brown to the Buffalo Bills on Saturday. In return for Brown, the Bills will receive a conditional 2015 fourth-round pick that can become a 2016 third-round pick. The Bills and Eagles also swapped 2014 seventh-round selections as part of the deal. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Bryce Brown gives the Bills insurance for Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller who are both entering the final year of their contracts. Jackson's age (33) means he likely won't be re-signed in Buffalo next season. Brown's fantasy value remains on hold as the third running back on the Bills depth chart.
Spiller, Jackson entering into contract years     -- Sun May 4 9:00 pm --

Bills have decisions to make at RB position
Chief among those (issues) is the long-term future at running back, where both C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are headed into the final year of their contracts. The Bills have performed their due diligence in looking at running backs during the pre-draft process, hosting six prospects at One Bills Drive. (Buffalo News)

FF Today's Take: Jackson (34) will almost certainly be allowed to walk at the end of this season while an attempt to keep Spiller (27) should be expected. The market for running backs is on the decline as teams are unwilling to issue big days to the position but Spiller could sign a deal similar to Chris Johnson's ($4 million per). Expect negotiations to pick up after the draft.
