Bills RB C.J. Spiller misses Friday practice, doubtful for Week 8

The Buffalo Bills were without running back C.J. Spiller @CJSPILLER at practice Friday. The early reports suggest Spiller will not play against the Saints after being listed doubtful. Fred Jackson @Fred22Jackson remains the back to own out of the bunch and Tashard Choice @tchoice23 would assume backup duties if Spiller is sidelined. Spiller has been ineffective while practicing and playing through this ankle injury.

Fantasy Analysis:

Spiller should've done this weeks ago. It really came to a head last week when he only rushed for 11 yards on six carries and added three catches for negative-four yards. That's just awful and for a guy selected in the first half of the first round of drafts, he's burned a ton fantasy owners. In the short-term, leave Spiller on your bench and give this some time. If he has fresh legs for your postseason games, Spiller could dominate and close the season on a really high note. He has to get healthy first and that's been much easier said than done up to this point.
