2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-06-2014 by Brian Murphy

YOU GOTTA BELIEVE: It is understandable if a large number of fantasy owners skip over this section of the article. Spiller was a first-round pick for many of them last year. He was going to be the focal point of the Bills' offense. Then an ankle injury hampered him for much of the season, and he burned his owners so badly with inconsistent outputs that some may never forgive him. It also didn't help that he was misused by the Bills' coaching staff even when he was running at full strength. Hopefully they learned the error of their ways, because Spiller remains this team's most dangerous weapon on offense. He averaged 4.6 yards per carry on just 201 totes last season. And there's reason to believe he will see much more work this season. Similar things have been spoken regarding Spiller before, but there is no denying that he presents massive upside when healthy. And right now, he is. The former Clemson alum could be a major steal at his current third-round average draft position.

Editor's note: Last year, Spiller was typically drafted around the middle of the first round of fantasy drafts. He was supposed to be the next big thing. He still can be; you just have to take the risk to glean the reward.

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
1.07 FFToolbox - Cindie Crain - Looking for a top tiered RB here at pick 7. Spiller should see plenty of action out of the backfield while EJ Manuel learns the new offense. I look for the Buffalo Bills to rely on Spiller even more in 2013.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
1.08 Draft TV - CJ Spiller is my #3 rated player so super happy to get him at 1.08. Remember what Chris Johnson did with a young, mediocre, mobile QB in Vince Young? 2,000 yards and the top fantasy RB. I expect Spiller to blow up with EJ Manuel at the helm.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
1.05 FFToolbox -Scott - CJ Spiller is entering the prime of his career and should be a fantasy beast this season. Fred Jax is in the twilight of his career and will provide Spiller the occasional breather when he needs it. With either Kolb or rookie EJ Manuel at Quarterback, this offense will roll through CJ Spiller.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
1.10 FootballDiehards - Spiller's 6.0 yards per carry average tied Adrian Peterson for best in the NFL. He's a solid receiving threat and better between the tackles than he's given credit for. He's a player new HC Doug Marrone will build his offense around until he settles on a QB.
