|After a pair of middling seasons, the 49ers seem to have moved on from Dixon, having signed big back Brandon Jacobs in free agency and used a 2nd round pick on LaMichael James. Dixon will enter training camp sitting fifth on the teamís depth chart and is unlikely to be on the San Francisco roster on opening day.
|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.
